Four-time Grand Slam champion, Naomi Osaka is one of the most popular stars on the planet. Also, on social media, she has millions of followers. Often, she interacts with fans on her social media. After receiving a walkover against Karolina Muchova in her Round-of-32 clash, Osaka had some free time. So, she hosted a question-and-answer session on her Instagram account.

In the past, we saw Naomi Osaka answer various types of questions. Usually, she gives a long and elaborated answer to every question. Recently, a fan asked a weird question, wanting to see a picture of her feet, which clearly didn’t amuse her one bit.  

In reply, she said, “U down horrendous huh?”

Along with it, she also posted a picture of her dog looking really not amused. Although the response with the picture of the dog was hilarious, the question, however, was not so funny either.

 

Osaka is through to the Round of 16 in Miami

Earlier, Osaka was scheduled to play against the Czech player, Muchova. However, due to a left abdominal injury, she had to withdraw from her match against the Japanese player. As a result, she got a walkover and went through to the next round. Once a dominant player on the tour, she has been inconsistent so far in 2022. This is just the second time she has reached the 4th round of any tournament this year. Surely, this will boost the Japanese player’s confidence.

Meanwhile, with a series of poor performances, she has dropped to 77 in the WTA rankings. If she goes far at the Miami Open, she will definitely improve her ranking, which will help her to get an automatic entry in future tournaments. Most importantly, she will get her confidence back to perform well at the Majors.

Now, the Japanese player’s focus should be on the Round-of-16 match, where she will face the American, Alison Riske. If she wins this match, she could face either Danielle Collins or Ons Jabeur in the quarterfinals.
