Azarenka has won two Australian Open singles titles (2012 and 2013), becoming the only Belarusian player, male or female, to win a Grand Slam singles title.
Her other achievements include winning the Gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, two mixed doubles Grand Slam titles (the 2007 US Open with Max Mirnyi, the 2008 French Open with Bob Bryan) and the gold medal in the mixed doubles at the 2012 Summer Olympics with Max Mirnyi.
Azarenka tends to play an aggressive baseline style that showcases her mobility. She is known for her strong two handed backhand, return game and taking the ball early. Her game is based on controlled aggression which she uses to hit relentless groundstrokes and to move her opponent around the court in order to hit low risk winners. Her aggressive game was praised particularly by American tennis player Sloane Stephens, who said that "she's just a really tough competitor".
