Tennis star Caroline Wozniacki pokes fun at Belarusian friend Victoria Azarenka, who crooned 'happy birthday' for Gael Monfils at the ongoing US Open tournament

Days after Victoria Azarenka sang 'Happy Birthday' for her 'best friend' Gael Monfils — who celebrated his 28th birthday on Monday — at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, her close pal Caroline Wozniacki has some friendly advice for her: Shut up!

Wozniacki, who beat Sara Errani on Tuesday, said after her match, "Vika, you shouldn't audition for The Voice. That was a screech."

The Voice is a popular reality TV singing competition which originated in the USA.

The incident took place when Azarenka was being interviewed after her win over qualifier Aleksandra Krunic.

"If you guys can help me please wish him (a) happy birthday, it would mean so much to me," Azarenka told the spectators before launching into an off-key rendition of the song.

Not many fans obliged the Belarusian and even the ESPN reporter who stood next to Azarenka during the song later admitted, "I think I prefer the grunting (from Azarenka during matches)."
