Are you going to bring him to other Grand Slam events as a good-luck charm? Maybe [then] you’ll know how good of a tennis player [he is].That was a pleasant surprise. Azarenka: I can’t bring him, he’s a big boy and takes care of himself. Can you confirm he’s as good a tennis player as he says he is?
Azarenka: It’s really different than any other people I’ve had in my box because he’s really into it, actually like he’s playing on the court himself. We just try to do our thing and have fun and laugh.
It was really fun, he really takes the whole experience so seriously and he was really supportive. We’re not supposed to talk about it, but we’ll see.
I went out and bought a piano, she didn’t even know.
I said, “Hey, I’ve got a surprise for you.” And she said, “What is this?
I met Ayaka Okuno and played with her, she was playing the junior [tournaments]. I wanted to teach her all the stuff I had learned about success and winning.
But then I started talking about strategy and attacking.
That was the mental thing that led me to quit tennis because I never wanted to quit anything -- I’m not quitting, I’m just replacing it with music. Now you’re getting back into tennis with a clothing line, coaching and the Party Rock Open.
I started coaching a junior, which started over the phone a lot.
I grew up playing with Lester Cook and his brother, Jason. I played with a Davis Cup player, he’s 19 but he’s on a Davis Cup team in Malaysia. Didn’t you leave tennis because you broke your wrist?
Lester made it to 180 on the tour  And I never lost to Lester, I just want that to be printed in bold. I was snowboarding and I snapped my wrist a little bit, the bone cracked.
I wanted to express myself to the world and I was writing songs.
