Ever since Naomi Osaka announced herself to the tennis world by clinching the US Open in 2018, there was no looking back for the four-time Grand Slam champion. The Japanese had a solid start to her campaign this year as she won the Australian Open for the second time.

Since then, Osaka struggled to produce consistent tennis as she lost to the likes of Maria Sakkari, Karolina Muchova, Jessica Pegula, etc., amongst other. During the European clay season where Osaka looked determined to change her fortune on the red-turf, she found it hard to adapt her game to the surface.

On top of this, Osaka got herself entangled in an off-court controversy at the French Open, where she decided to skip post-match press conferences in order to preserve her mental health. With the backlash that followed, she decided to skip Wimbledon and only appeared for the US hard-court summer.

Even though Osaka appears to be an introvert by nature, she has always made press conferences funny with her wit and rather innocent answers. Coming to her relationship with Cordae, the duo first met at an NBA game in 2019.
