In this week's episode of the SI Tennis Beyond the Baseline Podcast, Sports Illustrated executive editor and host Jon Wertheim sits down with in-studio guest Victoria Azarenka.

Ahead of her U.S. Open campaign, Wertheim talks with Azarenka about her life off the court—decorating her house in Manhattan Beach, Calif., how she feels mentally, her interaction with the fans and more. The pair also discusses who she believes is the best player in the women's game right now, her comeback from an injury-laden 2014 season and her recent coaching changes. While many think they know Azarenka's personality and off-the-court life, the World No. 20 also explains why most people don't know the real Victoria Azarenka.
