She’s seeded fourth in this year’s U.S. Open but, as of now, Victoria Azarenka might be most famous for these two things: her extremely loud, and often lengthy, shrieks when she hits the ball, and her tendency to retire from matches due to injury or fatigue.
Such notoriety really bugs her, and this is what she’d instead like you to know: She has a wicked backhand that’s helped her win seven singles tournaments since she went pro at age 16. She’s currently setting up two still-unnamed charities in her hometown of Minsk, Belarus. She loves music (Beyoncé!) and clothes (Gucci!), and is about to make her first New York Fashion Week runway debut, walking in Samantha Black’s show as part of the Style360 showcase (really nervous!). She’s also dating fellow pro tennis player Sergei Bubka Jr., who is ranked number 210 but she claims she can’t beat him.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
