The second season of former World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka’s groundbreaking Think About It video and audio podcast will debut today on multiple domestic and international Tennis Channel platforms. All episodes will be available at the start of the new season, with the network focusing on and promoting one of each successively during eight-consecutive weeks this summer and fall.
Once again Azarenka – who won back-to-back Australian Open championships in 2012-2013 – will interview experts in health, fitness and other arenas beyond the world of tennis to share their wisdom with her listeners and viewers. As with the podcast’s initial season in 2021, Tennis Channel will make her conversations widely available via the Tennis Channel Podcast Network, Tennis Channel app, websites, social media, and Tennis Channel International streaming service (see complete list, below). Produced in conjunction with the WTA, the women’s professional tennis tour will stream Azarenka’s podcast on WTA.com and its social outlets.
“I had so much fun shooting the first season of Think About It and I am grateful to be back on Tennis Channel again this year,” said Azarenka “I can’t wait for people to see and listen to the new season as we dive into many emotional and impactful conversations that help drive us to live up to our greatest potential.”
In 2022 Azarenka will host a variety of personalities who hail from outside the sport for which she is known. The show continues to focus on how the expertise of each can help audiences reach their highest mental and physical levels, or gain an inside view into their methods for achieving success or unearthing uncommonly held wisdom. Among her guests: Brandon Marshall, former NFL star and current television personality; Seal, singer, musician and producer; Melody Johnson, martial-arts master and child-development expert; Jeffrey Sparr, artist, mental-health advocate and founder of PeaceLove Organization; David Grutman, co-owner of the Prince tennis brand, entrepreneur and entertainment mogul; Jon Wertheim, author, Sports Illustrated journalist, CBS’ 60 Minutes correspondent, and Tennis Channel reporter and analyst.
