Since Naomi is currently preparing for the Australian Open 2021, she is in her training days. Her routine is simple; however, following the routine consistently is the key to winning tournaments consistently.

“My training days, they sort of run the same,” Naomi revealed in a video with Vogue. “Practice in the morning, do gym in the afternoon, and then get treatment after.”

But before she goes out for tennis practice, her day starts in the kitchen. The 3-time Grand Slam champion’s breakfast includes a variety of bread with avocado, smoked salmon, and kippers. Once she’s done with that, she is straight off to a tennis court.

How does Naomi Osaka prepare for the Australian Open 2021?

On the court, the reigning US Open champion dedicatedly hits balls over the tennis net. Then, she shifts to a gym where she works out rigorously with her trainer. And following that, Naomi gets her physiotherapy treatment to enhance her day’s work.

The Japanese born spoke about her nerves about going to Australia. “Right now I’m excited because I’m training for it currently,” she said. “But maybe when I’m playing my first round, I’ll be a little bit nervous. I’ll probably be nervous when I get there, maybe, I am not sure.”

Notably, not many players have won three Grand Slams in the short time that Osaka has won them in. And given her experience, she is definitely looking forward to winning again.

“Usually, I am very excited for Grand Slams. But if I was nervous, I would tell myself that everyone’s nervous,” World No. 3 said. “I don’t think there’s a player that isn’t nervous going into a Grand Slam.”
