Melbourne - Victoria Azarenka reiterated her love for her grandmother and revealed that she even chose her name, overruling her parents.

"I have to thank her because my parents wanted to call me Daria, and I don't think that suits me at all. They actually put that on my birth certificate. My grandmother was like, 'No, no, no, you can't name her that. She has to be Victoria,'" said the world No 2, adding: "I don't know how to describe the love that I have for this woman. She's just so happy all the time. It's incredible."
