MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Serena Williams says Lance Armstrong let all athletes down by doping and telling lies about it for so long, while No. 1-ranked Victoria Azarenka says the disgraced former cyclist ``deserves everything he gets.''
Williams and Azarenka, speaking Saturday after their third-round wins at the Australian Open, said Armstrong's confession after such vehement denials cast doubt over other sports.
Williams says ``unfortunately, I think a lot of people now look and are like, `OK, if somebody (is) that great, what about everyone else in every other sport?'''
Azarenka says ``everybody works so hard to be the best ... you cannot go other ways.''
On Friday, Novak Djokovic said, ``I think it's a disgrace for the sport to have an athlete like this'' and that he should ``suffer for his lies.''
