'I love you', Osaka tells US Open final opponent Serena
08 September, 2018, 23:29 | Author: Amy Huff
It's certainly understandable that the 20-year-old Osaka would be excited to face Williams.
Barty has reached the final of each of the four grand slams during her career, although is yet to claim a title. When asked about their rivalry during the postmatch news conference, Osaka said, "She beat me 6-0 until I was 15, so I don't know if you could call it a rivalry if she could beat me 6-0". "I should just try to play her as an opponent".
Osaka had beaten Serena in their only meeting on the tour - Miami Masters earlier this year when the latter had just returned from her maternity leave.
"To come from that, in the hospital bed, not being able to move and walk and do anything, to now only a year later, I'm actually in these finals, in two [Grand Slam finals] in a row", Williams said shortly after the match. She holds both Japanese and American citizenship, and is far more adept in English than she is in her mother tongue. And the way she acts on court is very Japanese. I mean, hopefully I won't play like that again. "From my name, they don't expect to see a black girl".
But if her run in Queens and her play at Indian Wells in the spring are any indication, she might want to get used to playing on the biggest stages. She is now headed to the U.S. Open for the 9 time.
Naomi Osaka stands in way of her idol Serena Williams
Williams will undoubtedly have the support of her home crowd but there will be no shortage of love for Osaka, who has won the admiration of New Yorkers over the last fortnight as much for her red-hot game as her cool-headed demeanor. And in Japan, Naomi Osaka was still a month away from her second birthday.
The campaign, which made its television debut during the National Football League season opener Thursday, has been greeted with videos of show burnings and complaints from US President Donald Trump. "No matter what happens in any match, semis, finals, I just feel like I've already won". She has never played a match of this magnitude. "I shouldn't really think of her as my idol". It would also give her a record-tying 24 Grand Slam victories. "Even when I was a little kid, I always dreamed that I would play Serena in a final of a Grand Slam", Osaka said.
She hasn't won one at the U.S. Open since 2014 or anywhere since the 2017 Australian Open, when while pregnant she became the oldest Grand Slam female champion at 35. Two and a half years later, Williams herself will be testing that herself while Osaka lives out a dream.
Realising she had caused confusion, she added: "That's a Pokemon quote, I'm sorry".
And that's What's Trending Today. "Every match is a different story, so you can not write the book before you are on the right page". Ashley Thompson was the editor.
