Naomi Osaka talked about working with coach Wim Fissette

I think Wim and I have excellent chemistry. We were constantly communicating during quarantine, working on certain aspects of the game. Trust in the team is very important for me. When I don’t get along with something, I feel sad for them because they drive everywhere with me.
It seems to me that my game became noticeably better. The psychological problem which was last year has disappeared: I stopped comparing results, now I just look into the future
