Azarenka was joined by Party Rock Crew, as Redfoo’s group is known, after the winning the title against Li Na on Saturday.

The LMFAO frontman known for his wild hair and wilder music has been a colorful addition to this year’s Australian Open, where he was a regular fixture in Azarenka’s front-row seats.

During her final, his leopard-print jacket was visible from the upper decks.

“It’s a dream come true,” Redfoo told an Australian TV station, referring to Azarenka’s win. “I came out here to support her, and I’m just so happy.”

The interviewer seemed more interested in getting the pair to talk about their relationship, which made the 23-year-old Azarenka turn bright red.

MEN’S DOUBLES: Mike and Bob Bryan set one more record together as a doubles team – and this might be the most special of them all.

The identical twins became the most decorated doubles team in Grand Slam history by winning their 13th major title at the Australian Open on Saturday, beating the unseeded Dutch pair of Robin Haase and Igor Sijsling 6-3, 6-4 in 53 minutes.

The 34-year-old Americans had been tied with the Australian greats John Newcombe and Tony Roche with 12 major titles.

“To be a part of history is pretty special,” Mike Bryan said. “We weren’t thinking about it much out there, but now that we have it, it’s going to be fun to look back on our career and say we have the most Grand Slams.”

Sijsling joked during the trophy presentation that he had lost count of how many titles the brothers had won.

“It’s probably 15,” he said. “What is it?”
