At age 15, Azarenka moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, United States, from Minsk, Belarus, to train. In this she was aided by National Hockey League goalie Nikolai Khabibulin and his wife, who is a friend of Azarenka’s mother.  In 2012 she moved to Monaco  and in August 2013 she bought a new house in Los Angeles, California.  Azarenka is fluent in Belarusian, Russian, and English and has some handling of French and Ukrainian. In 2011 she briefly considered a break from the sport of tennis to focus on education; however, after a conversation with her grandmother, she decided to continue playing. It is the inspiration from her grandmother that is regarded as the key for her continued developments in the sport.

Azarenka dated American musician Redfoo between late 2012 and early 2014. She has spoken openly about her experience of depression during her injury-induced absence from professional tennis in 2014.
