Billy’s decision was a life-changing event for him; he moved to Hawaii, where he started working as a golf pro at the North Shores Resorts, and it was there that he met Azarenka. It was a chance meeting as Victoria was visiting her friend Gabrielle Reece and Reece’s husband Laird Hamilton. Billy and Azarenka felt a connection, but she was already in a relationship at the time. Nevertheless, the two found each other sometime later, and started a romantic relationship. Gradually their relationship developed, and in July 2016 Azarenka announced that she was pregnant with Billy’s child, and their son Leo was born on the 20th December.

She won the Brisbane International which was her first WTA career title, and continued quite successfully throughout 2009, also winning the US National Indoor in Memphis, and then the Miami Open where she defeated Serena Williams in straight sets. Victoria then started her dominance in women tennis which lasted from 2010 to 2014, during which time she won most of her titles, including the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics.
However, from 2014 onwards, problems started to appear, both personal and professional, which caused a drastic change in Victoria’s playing performance. Her next title didn’t come until the 2016 Brisbane International, and she again started making progress on the WTA list, with several other victories in 2016, including at Indian Wells and the Miami Open. She finished her 2016 season early as she was pregnant, and upon return to the tour she was still involved in the legal battle for custody of her son with her ex-boyfriend.
