After her tennis career, Victoria Azarenka says she might relocate to this exotic nation.

Paula Badosa’s forced retirement during their round of 16 match in Guadalajara, according to Victoria Azarenka, was “very heartbreaking.” Badosa retired due to illness after Azarenka easily won the first set with a score of 6-2.

“Nobody should ever retire because we come out to compete and give it our all. It’s really disappointing that Paula was unable to complete the game. I wish her a speedy recovery. I anticipate that we will play a few more matches, so I’m looking forward to those “As reported on the WTA website by Azarenka.

Mexico is dear to Azarenka.

The WTA Finals were held in Guadalajara the previous year. Azarenka heard great things about the Mexican city even if she didn’t play in the 2021 WTA Finals. “I’ve heard a lot of positive things about the Finals in Guadalajara from last year, including how exciting the atmosphere was.

That was really good because that’s what kind of inspires me to go out and play “explained Azarenka. Azarenka, 33, is gradually moving toward the end of her professional career. She may relocate to Mexico once her tennis career is over.

“One of the friendliest locations to visit, with such incredible energy and support. When I do retire, I was actually considering where I would like to live, and Mexico may be at the top of the list “Says Azarenka of Mexico.

Azarenka was competing against Badosa for the third time at the same time. Azarenka and Badosa squared off in the Indian Wells final the previous year. Badosa won her maiden WTA 1000 championship back then with a hard-fought three-set victory. Azarenka defeated Badosa in straight sets in Adelaide at the beginning of this season.

Azarenka made a good start to their match this week in Guadalajara, but Badosa was obviously suffering from the illness, which was impacting her performance.
