Q. So you’re sticking with the dab in Australia? VICTORIA AZARENKA: For now, yeah. Q. For luck? VICTORIA AZARENKA: I just like doing it. I don’t believe in luck. I believe in hard work.
Azarenka is the No. 14 seed at this tournament but should still be considered one of the favorites. She won back-to-back titles in Melbourne in 2012 and 2013. She’ll face Montenegro’s Danka Kovinic in the second round.
