    This girl is naturally humble. She doesn’t even need to try. I hope she stays grounded. A Good character that needs to be guarded.

    +Lloyd Gittens Hi there! You do know her mom is Japanese, right?

  • pennless8 (Feb 8, 2019)

    Hope she finds a guy that can appreciate that.

  • jared day (Sep 14, 2018)

    SOOO CALM AND HUMBLE PLEASE DON'T LET FAME CHANGE YOU.

  • The Big Chunky Bear (Sep 30, 2018)

    jared day she’s so different from that angry chimp Serena. I hope she never turns into the chimp that she looks up to.

  • Dark Mess (Sep 25, 2018)

    What fame?! Everybody is only talking about Serena and if they are talking about Naomi, its asking about the controversy. Not about her. She got screwed horrendously and the crowd encouraged childish behavior in a FINALS GAME! Was never a fan of Tennis, but I expected all sports to have their talent carry respect with them and showcase their sport in a positive light. Tennis (at least women's tennis) has no honor or prestige in it for me. A shameful sport all ruined by one person. A shame indeed.

  • Jeremy Martin (Sep 17, 2018)

    The media wants her to give a controversial comment but she isn't falling for the bait

  • Sam Tanaka (Jan 29, 2019)

    +The Big Chunky Bear That was so unnecessary things to say about Serena. In case you don't know, NAOMI loves Serena... respecting & idealizing her for so many years, NAOMI will hate to see YOUR comment....calling her "Chimp". That's so rude!! 1 other viewer joined you with the disgusting comment about Serena & again, NAOMI would feel sad seeing that. I'm sure she feels she can do without the fans like you guys.

  • fafafuhi 22 (Sep 16, 2018)

    America embraces you Naomi... Forget that fake crowd at the US open.... You're a true champ

  • あ あ (Jan 26, 2019)

    ((ʚ( ´ ꒳ ` )ɞ))

  • Treebeard (Oct 11, 2018)

    Please remember that the crowd didn't really know or understand what was going on or why there was a game penalty, etc. They were booing because an "outside influence" (as in other than the match) robbed them of a wonderful match that cost them a ton of money to watch. Love Naomi and Serena!

  • Brian Lawlor (Sep 10, 2018)

    Naomi is the winner give her some credit she's one lady her being nervous is so cute

  • Brian Lawlor (Nov 22, 2018)

    So am I

  • Caino 05 (Sep 22, 2018)

    +fairy princess possibly the stupidest comment on YouTube.

  • Sophia E (Sep 14, 2018)

    This was the worst interview! WHAT DOES SERENA SMELL LIKE!??!? SERENA, SERENA! All of Osaka's photos of her winning have Serena in them.

  • VividChi (Jan 30, 2019)

    +Randal Collins no one cheated she tried to call bs and the ump was having none of it, he's a legend who stuck by the book.

  • Randal Collins (Jan 15, 2019)

    That's because she's the CHAMPION and Serena really won...thays why ...they cheated

  • BulletproofKam (Sep 15, 2018)

    These hosts are a joke they didn't even research her! She's played Serena before but they thought it was the first time!! Bad hosts!!

  • Shayneby Shaynebi (Sep 25, 2018)

    Bulletproofcammy Most of these media people care about is use her to draw traffic and possibly make her say something controversial, which would bring more traffic to their network, which is the reason why they couldn't even research their special guest in her area of expertise for the interview or her history with the person she played with (Serena). That's not their focus. It's such a shame. I'm glad she won. Well deserve!

  • wonkyu lee (Sep 23, 2018)

    Bulletproofcammy im sure they didnt even bother to research about naomi but just invited her here to lure her to say things against serena so they can publish that on paper

  • John Smith (Sep 14, 2018)

    These are the dumbest interviewers ever.

  • lar ljd (Sep 23, 2018)

    Liberals at best

  • Henry Wang (Sep 14, 2018)

    When you have two interviewers and they still can't ask any decent questions...

  • Sean Montgomery (Sep 30, 2018)

    So,let me get this straight,the sports reporters that interview athletes set them up to make controversial comments to get them in trouble and make them look good at their job.The crowd is not fake.Naomi is cute,a good player,lucky,all because Serena got too many bad breaks.This should have been Serena's 24th GS,moment (Grand Slam),and she deserved a better fate,but nothing went right at all.If they meet up again,for a championship,I hope Serena wins.

  • Gregory Tyse (Sep 16, 2018)

    im sooo glad for this Haitian/Japanese family! They surely deserved it!

  • jonenez zidane (Nov 13, 2018)

    Finally Haitian/japanese

  • ATL 1 (Sep 26, 2018)

    +Tom Garnett what race did he use.
