Czech Karolina Pliskova expressed an opinion about the pressure faced by the Japanese Naomi Osaka after two victories in the Grand Slam tournaments.
“I don’t think you feel a lot of pressure when you win a major for the first time and become the first racket of the world. But after the success of the US Open, the pressure on Osaka has increased significantly. That victory has become more unexpected than in Melbourne. Naomi showed excellent tennis, won two Grand Slam tournaments and became the first racket of the world.
She became the best in the world, so everyone is waiting for her to win every match. In my opinion, she coped well with pressure. In Dubai, she first appeared on the court after winning in Australia. She needs a game practice, “- quoted Pliskova press service of the WTA.
