  • FAST Food Pit Stops (Sep 10, 2018)

    The reporter room is like a pack of hungry wolves trying to trip her up on the Serena debacle and get her to say something seething and controversial. Rather than an abundance of congratulations, they would have honestly been more interested to interview Serena even after losing, rather than the rightful champion.

  • Adam Knox (Dec 22, 2018)

    A S Agree 100%

  • A S (Dec 2, 2018)

    +Gess Hugh I agree with you. A very sensible answer. I think the reporting press will enjoy interviewing Naomi in future interviews because she is so humble and approachable. I know I would. Too many "stars" almost seem to love being arrogant and egotistical, but such behavior in Japan is frowned upon because it is rude behavior. I know a few Japanese co-workers and they are all polite and genuinely nice people, too.

  • Melissa Kasim (Sep 11, 2018)

    *Yes she is a shy person, but for a 20 years old, Naomi Osaka shows a lot of maturity and grace! She just shines!! And good luck for her match in Tokyo!*

    +Mari Ana Education ? it's not that it's her personality coming through. And by the way,she wasn't educated in Japan. They left there when she was 3. Being "UNIQUE" invites problems in that culture and leaving the Japanese school system could have been a GOOD thing.

  • Sage Hulk (Dec 2, 2018)

    A S I’ll take a look at so thank you for recommending it also I agree in the west completion is seen differently then in the east and the general mid set is different which allows them to be better winners and loser and be more driven

  • Andrew A (Sep 10, 2018)

    My new favorite athlete. Such a refreshing personality.

  • A S (Dec 2, 2018)

    +Dylan James Chang Holy Christ, Dylan. Andrew A makes a simple remark and you are all over him. Chill out. Better yet, man up and apologize to him.

  • Ethan Fisher-Perez (Sep 20, 2018)

    I don't think he claimed to be a very big sports fan. And I think enjoying anyone, even an athlete, because of their personality is a great thing.

  • P Chuck (Sep 10, 2018)

    What a sweet and humble young lady! I hope she stays that way. She is a role model for young girls.

  • Robert Walt (Nov 12, 2018)

    Doctor Darkness evidence?

  • Robert Walt (Nov 12, 2018)

    P Chuck she's an actual person. I hate it when athletes put on a persona.

  • DreamAngel123 PFW (Sep 9, 2018)

    I appreciate that Naomi is a beautiful and talented tennis player . We will definitely be seeing more of her. Not to mention that she still held Serena up as an idol. Naomi Osaka is sweet , funny and very talented, who could not love that . Congratulations Naomi🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉.

  • Jo Nanna (Sep 11, 2018)

    Congratulations Mum and Dad, you have raised a beautiful and classy young woman. 👏

  • Mo Kang (Sep 11, 2018)

    Am I the only one who cry on watching this interview?

  • eternal praise (Sep 23, 2018)

    +Jane Dee ToFreedom definitely her grace n humility, qualities like that only come from above 🎾🏆🎉🎉

  • Lan Fon (Sep 23, 2018)

    i will agree to that. i cant wait until the next match to see tennis at its finest hopefully it will be only about tennis.

  • merlin aviation (Sep 21, 2018)

    The tennis world has woken a sleeping giant with those boos . She will return to the US Open and dominate with no apology .

  • Rosa Alcala (Sep 11, 2018)

    In japan children are taught to respect other people and to be gentle to animals and nature. They also learn how to be generous, compassionate, and empathetic. Besides this, the kids are taught qualities like grit, self-control, and justice. If her mother is Japanese she has learnt plenty of that with her.

    the. US hunters kill more than 60 Bowhead whales annually.

  • A S (Jan 27, 2019)

    +Rufus BarnabusIn America they kill people daily. Where would you rather be living?

  • Brian Lawlor (Sep 9, 2018)

    So proud of this Young girl she deserves to win and she's so beautiful ❤️

  • Lan Fon (Sep 23, 2018)

    white guy- ryu sad but your probably right - japan will have to change - my upbringing was in a heavily prejudice household. my dad always said blacks all look alike (and visually i agreed) until i made some black friends as a kid in bermuda 80% black. miss bermuda worked at a small store on our street. through the years i realised that all my black friends did not look alike and were just like me and fun. miss bermuda was crushingly gorgeous it was nice of her to put up wit a 13 year old white kid b...
