Kasatkina’s Vlog Features Azarenka, Wozniacki, and Badosa

Daria Kasatkina and her girlfriend Natalia Zabiiako have released the latest episode of their joint vlog, which features a candid interview with former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka. The episode, which Kasatkina has declared the “best … so far!” delves into the world of clay-court tennis and reveals a humorous anecdote about Roger Federer.

Azarenka, who had previously invited herself onto the vlog, shared her insights on clay-court play and recounted a funny story from the Mutua Madrid Open in 2012, when the tournament experimented with blue clay. She also revisited her famous match against Kasatkina at the 2020 Internazionali BNL d’Italia, where she comforted Kasatkina after she rolled her ankle in the first-set tiebreak.

“After this injury, you managed to recover and play so quickly! People don’t know this! These are the stories that need to be told!” Azarenka exclaimed. “You need to tell people such life stories. They can help children, for example, because they don’t know.”

The episode also features a visit from Caroline Wozniacki, who shared a video of their memorable ride from the airport to the tournament’s player hotel. Jennifer Brady, who recently underwent a second knee surgery, provided an update on her recovery while meeting Kasatkina for breakfast on crutches. Paula Badosa took a nostalgic trip down memory lane, showing a photo of herself and Kasatkina from their youth.

“In Facebook, I have you as my sister … from when we were 13 years old!” Badosa said.

The nearly 90-minute episode offers a glimpse into the lives of these tennis stars, providing insights into their on-court experiences and personal journeys.

However, she expressed disappointment with “Oppenheimer,” which won seven awards including Best Picture and Best Director. Kasatkina questioned the film’s acclaim, prompting mixed reactions from her followers.

One comment that drew Kasatkina’s ire was a suggestion that she should “stick with tennis.” She responded by questioning why her interest in other areas should be limited by her profession.

Other members of the tennis community also shared their thoughts on the Oscars. Former doubles world No. 1 Rennae Stubbs and eight-time Grand Slam singles champion Chris Evert debated the Best Actor award, with Evert supporting Bradley Cooper for his performance in “Maestro” and Stubbs praising Cillian Murphy’s performance in “Oppenheimer.”
