London: Former world number one Victoria Azarenka can't support her native Belarus at the World Cup so she follows Argentina because Lionel Messi is "cute".
"I've been a supporter of Argentina for the last three World Cups," said former double Australian Open winner Azarenka.
"They even have pictures of me wearing an Argentina shirt from maybe 2000. I love Messi. I think he's one of the greatest players of all time.
"He's so little, so cute. It's just fun."
Azarenka made the Wimbledon second round on Monday with a 6-3, 7-5 win over Croatia's Mirjana Lucic-Baroni for only her first win on the tour since January.
