However, what grabbed the attention of fans was that one could also see US Senator Bernie Sanders in the background as a line judge which added humor to the post. Osaka was certainly both in shock as well as laughter after watching the post. She even asked who did that thing on her Twitter handle.

“Who did this???” asked Osaka in the caption.

The picture that is getting viral is from the Oath ceremony of US President Joe Biden. The US Senator Sanders showed up in a heavy jacket and patterned mittens. In addition to this, he was actually sitting in a cross-legged position as if he was not at all interested. His position along with his outfit is what is making him trend on social media.

Osaka had quite a phenomenal season in 2020. Although she suffered a humiliating defeat in the third round against Coco Gauff at the Australian Open 2020, she managed to end her season on a high.

She managed to reach the finals of the Cincinnati Masters 2020, but suffered an unfortunate injury there. However, she was completely dominant at the US Open 2020 and managed to lift her third Grand Slam title there.

Osaka will certainly try to achieve much more silverware in 2021. She will begin her 2021 campaign at the Australian Open 2021 and will be surely excited for it since she is making a comeback after four months. Will Osaka be able to lift her fourth Grand Slam title in Melbourne this year?
