MELBOURNE: A glint of Belarusian steel and the support of her crazy entourage have given Victoria Azarenka hope she can win any Grand Slam title -- and take on her nemesis, the great Serena Williams.
Celebrations were long and noisy for the world number one after her win over Li Na in yesterday's eventful final, when she overcame a hostile crowd and a host of distractions to successfully defend her title.
After a night on the town with her boyfriend, colourful LMFAO musician Redfoo, the world number one had just four hours' sleep before confidently telling media she believes she can "make it happen" at any major.
"Every one," said the tall blonde, 23, when asked which Grand Slam tournament she would most like to win this year.
