Naomi Osaka: Nobody knew about me a year ago

Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka commented on entering the fourth round of the tournament in Indian Wells, where she will play with Swiss Belinda Bencic.

“I remember that last time we met at the Hopman Cup, I lost. I think what Belinda could achieve is great. She returned from injury and played again at the top level. Of course, we both want to win the next match. In our previous meeting, I made too many mistakes, but that was at the beginning of 2018, when you guys didn’t know me yet.

I remember our meeting in 2013. Then I did not eat all day. I just went to court with the intention of powerfully hitting the ball. Fortunately, I fell. I think that is why she was able to win. I think Bencic was shocked. We are about the same age, but I hardly played in junior tournaments, no one knew me. And Belinda was a big star in junior tennis. She is still a star. That is why I am telling this story “, – Osaka quotes the press service of the Tour.
