Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka shared expectations from the tournament in Miami.
“I am very glad that my sister is here with me. Usually we don’t play with her in some tournaments, so I am so pleased to see her here. Until I was 15 years old, my sister beat me dry, it was just funny. But suddenly it clicked in my head, but in our games it was still stronger. I think she beat me a million times. Everyone knows that tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami are like two “Slams”. It motivates.
Last year I won in Indian Wells, but could not defend the title. Now I want to perform well in Miami. Last year’s match with Serena at this tournament was our first meeting. I came from Indian Wells and felt tired. But I wanted to play anyway and see what happens. I was able to win, it was like in a dream “, – the press service of the Tour quotes Osaka.
