Melbourne: Victoria Azarenka is constantly trying to prove herself.
Trying to prove her Australian Open title last year was no fluke. Trying to prove she deserves to be regarded, as well as ranked, the number one player in the world. Trying to prove she is not a cheat. Trying to earn respect. Trying to prove she can control her emotions.
Azarenka made history as the first player from Belarus to win a Grand Slam by thrashing Maria Sharapova in the final of the Australian Open last year.
