Defending champion into back-to-back Australian Open finals.
Victoria Azarenka talks about her controversial Australian Open semi-final win over Sloane Stephens in Melbourne.
The defending champions took a ten-minute timeout with the American set to serve at 6-1, 5-4 down.
“Well, you know, I had been struggling a little bit throughout the whole match, from the second set, my back,” Azarenka said.

“And it just kept getting worse. I should have, you know, called the trainer a little bit earlier before that when I got to the point that I couldn’t really breathe and had to go off court.
“So there was a little bit of my bad. But just a rib got locked and kept getting worse. I had to have it adjusted. I really had to go and take that medical time-out.”
