Naomi Osaka: “If it weren’t for Serena Williams, I wouldn’t be here now”

Japanese Naomi Osaka first made a name for herself on the world tennis stage in March 2018, when she beat Daria Kasatkina to win her first career title at Indian Wells. In fact, Naomi had already reached two finals before: in Hua Hin in 2015 and in Tokyo in 2016, defeated by Jaroslava Shvedova and Caroline Wozniacki respectively.

 

A few months after her triumph in Indian Wells, Osaka became the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam tournament at the US Open, where she surprised home crowd player Serena Williams in two sets, in the final.

Thanks to that success, Osaka broke the Top-10 for the first time and ended the season at number 5 in the world a few weeks later.

 

In 2019 she immediately repeated at the Australian Open, beating Petra Kvitova in the final and conquering the top of the WTA ranking. She also raised the Osaka and Beijing trophies at the end of the year.

In this 2020 so damaged by the Coronavirus pandemic, Naomi is back to win once again in New York, this time by beating Belarusian Victoria Azarenka by a comeback.

 

“I have to say that if Serena had never been there, I probably wouldn’t be here now. I also believe that many other players can say the same thing,” confessed Osaka, as reported by EssentiallySports.

 

This year, the Japanese also reached the final in Cincinnati, but decided to retire before taking the field against Azarenka.
