During the 2012 London Olympic Games, she won the gold medal in Mixed Doubles and bronze in Singles. She has also won two Grand Slam Mixed Doubles titles (2008 French Open and 2007 US Open).
She ended her 2016 season early due to injuries that forced her to withdraw from the French Open and Wimbledon. In July 2016 she announced her pregnancy via Twitter and gave birth to son, Leo on December 20th, 2016.
Billy McKeague is a St. Louis native. He attended Chaminade College Preparatory School in St. Louis –where he played hockey.

He is the son of investment banker, Chase McKeague –who leads the investment group Chase and Company. His mother’s name is Lynn McKeague and he has two siblings, Lisa and Charlie.
It is believed at one point during his hockey career, he switched to golf. In fact, some outlets note, that’s how the two met. At the time he worked as a golf instructor at golf resorts on the North Shore and Victoria was on vacation in Hawaii.
Following the birth of their child, the former couple moved in together at Azarenka’s home in Manhattan.
