The world's No. 1 women's tennis player has a star boyfriend who has a penchant for shots and party rock. She is reportedly dating LMFAO's Redfoo. 

Sports Illustrated (h/t Big Lead) reports the tennis star and former member of the hit party duo LMFAO are quite the power couple. 

The report notes Redfoo (37) has been a constant fixture at tennis events since the US Open, but now he has a specific player he is far more interested in than any other. 

The site spotted the following radio interview where the pop star spilled all the deets on his affection for the best women's player in the world. 

“I’m in love,” he said. “I don’t care who knows it. With a special one. I got a special one. A No. 1, if you will.”

That really should be enough for any tennis star to connect the dots. 

Then he was interviewed by Australia's Channel 7 and issued the following on Azarenka. 

“I’m a big Vika fan as well,” he said. “I’m supporting Team Vika. You know, I came here just to see her play. It’s very exciting.”

When asked whether the two were romantically involved, Redfoo didn’t do much to quash the rumors.

“I don’t like to kiss and tell,” he said. “But we’re really close and she’s a very special person and I’m very happy in my life right now.”

Here are the two at the 2012 US Open, where Azarenka proclaims Redfoo is a huge tennis fan. The pop artist sits in an outfit only an NBA player would dare wear to postgame interview. 

Redfoo pretty much stole Serena Williams' next outfit. 

If you aren't familiar with the LMFAO catalog, their music is pretty much stuffed into your ear holes at alarming decibels at most Las Vegas clubs, or any club for that matter. 

They just want to party, or party rock for that matter, and they are going to inform you of this with audacious anthems and Zubaz pants.

Unfortunately, the party gods were not so kind to this world, because LMFAO, featuring Redfoo and SkyBlu, split in September of 2012.

Redfoo, as Big Lead notes, has a tremendous love for tennis, and he coaches as well as sponsors tennis tournaments. 

As for Azarenka, she is doing her part to hold onto the vaunted No. 1 ranking by dominating the Australian Open. 

She cruised relatively easily in her first-round matchup, and now the 23-year-old Belarusian will take on Eleni Daniilidou. 

Redfoo will most likely be in the stands rooting on his boo.
