Every star athlete needs a posse; it's time to meet Victoria Azarenka's version
This article appears in the March 22 issue of ESPN The Magazine.
Tennis may be an individual's sport, but every top player travels with an entourage. Who gets a cut of the $4.5 million that No. 6 Victoria Azarenka pulls down annually? For starters: her coach and trainer -- who roll with the 20-year-old Belarusian to every Tour stop -- and her agent, who brokers endorsement deals. But if Azarenka hopes to defend her title in Miami, she'll need moral support, too. (Hello, Mom.) Meet Team Azarenka.
You've gotten the setup. To actually meet the entourage, you must be an ESPN Insider. (There's a dog involved.)
