Victoria Azarenka is excited about Broncos’ AFC Championship win

Monday January 25th, 2016

Victoria Azarenka is through to the quarterfinals of the Australian Open after a 6–2, 6–4 victory over Barbora Strycova, and the former world No. 1 got another piece of good news during her postgame interview.

It seems at some point in her travels, the Russian tennis star became a Broncos fan and found out from the crowd in Melbourne they were headed to the Super Bowl.

Azarenka spent most of the NFL season cheering Peyton Manning and company on from her Twitter account.

With her beloved Denver squad taking on Cam Newton and the Panthers, it looks like there will be a lot of dabbing going on at Vika’s Super Bowl party.
