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.''
