After winning the 2018 US Open and the 2019 Australian Open, Naomi Osaka had a massive dip in form. She suffered early exits at the French Open, Wimbledon and also failed to defend her title at the US open.
She found some form towards the end of the year winning the Japan Open and the China Open. This came after her split with coach Jermaine Jenkins. She has since been coaching under her father Leonard Francois which has worked for her so far.

In 2018, he worked with Angelique Kerber helping her win the Wimbledon after she had a massive dip in form falling out of the top-20. However, they split in October 2018.
