Soon after arriving in the City, Azarenka held a brief press conference with Vietnamese reporters at the Lan Anh Club in District 10.

“I have never been in Vietnam before but have heard a lot about your country, especially about Vietnamese cuisine. I have already tried Pho, possibly the most well-known dish of your country,” said Azarenka.

After the press conference, she immediately returned to her hotel to rest in anticipation of the matches that will take place the following day.

The ‘Heineken Stars 2012’ tournament will officially open this afternoon, September 20.

Besides Azarenka, other top world players will also take part in the tournament.
