Why Victoria Azarenka Doesn't Want To Meet Lionel Messi

Victoria Azarenka is still not ready to meet the great soccer player Lionel Messi even though she loves to watch him play.

The Belarusian is currently in North America having a rocky start to the season with the Washington Open, as is Messi, who joined Inter Miami this season to start a new chapter in his illustrious career.

Azarenka may have come to watch Messi start for his new club against Atlanta United, but she kept her distance.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of her first-round match against Elina Svitolina in Washington, Azarenka was asked about her experience watching Messi play in the United States against Europe.

The former Wimbledon champion then praised the atmosphere in the United States before admitting she was not ready to meet the World Cup champion.

Why Victoria Azarenka avoid to meet Lionel Messi?

Azarenka couldn’t contain herself when she was with Messi or even talking about him. And among the spectators of the Inter Miami-Atlanta United match, Fica pressed the “selfie” button with the Argentine player.

Well, even though it’s technically a selfie with Messi, he’s completely oblivious to it, because he’s busy playing games. Her caption on the Instagram post tells you everything you need to know about how she feels.

Azarenka was then asked about her time in Fort Lauderdale and the atmosphere in the match versus Europe. After replying to this, Victoria asked if she would like to meet Missy if given the chance.

“I had a big privilege being very, very close to the pitch, so I could almost feel like I’m on the field. I was very lucky with that and very grateful. So it was really fun. I definitely want to go see more games.

“Not ready, I don’t know if I’m ready to meet Messi yet. We’ll see. I might actually cry. Like, I’m not a fan — not that I’m not — I am a fan of a lot of people, but I don’t really get starstruck, but yeah, I don’t know. I might cry. I definitely will probably cry.”
