The leading Belarusian female tennis player said that she loves Minsk and is always happy to return to the city. This time she came with new coaches and with her baby son. According to Victoria Azarenka, her team was pleased with Minsk sports facilities that provide perfect conditions for game practice and physical training.

But still I can train on indoor courts and in gym to prepare to get back to the WTA Tour,” Victoria said.
Victoria Azarenka remarked that Minsk keeps up with other cities in terms of living conditions: food products are of high quality, the road quality is also good.
