Naomi Osaka Gets Dragged after Calling Serena Williams 'Mom' in New Post

A spectator reads a sign warning of air quality ahead of the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne Australia Saturday Jan. 18 2020

Their matchup was the most anticipated of Day 1 at the first Grand Slam tournament of 2020.

The 22-year-old Osaka said the win at the Australian Open brought increased pressure and coverage.

Here's how our staff is betting the futures market. After the successful delivery, Serena returned to the game in late 2018 and reached the US Open final that year.

He's likely going to be the next player, outside of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal, to win a major.

The second seed came into the tournament after leading Serbia to the ATP Cup title in Sydney, winning all six of his singles matches. "It's my racket. I can do whatever the hell I want with it".

The Japanese star claimed her second grand slam title in Melbourne in 2019, backing up her US Open success from just months prior.

With 36-year-old Kim Clijsters planning another comeback this season after seven years away from tennis, Wozniacki was naturally asked whether she might also one day reconsider her decision to retire. "Slams always feel like there's a lot of chaos going because there's so many people. She slices and dropshots from what I could see of her matches in the past", Osaka said.

However, there were no concerns in her win over Potapova with conditions having changed for the better as well.

"I feel in a better head space though, compared to where I was after I lost Brisbane a year ago", Osaka told reporters, referring to her semi-final defeat to Lesia Tsurenko in the Brisbane International, a warm-up event for Melbourne Park.

Serena Williams' bid for a record-equalling 24th grand slam title begins at the Australian Open on Monday. "I just feel really happy", Osaka said in her post-match conference.

After sealing the first set tiebreak when Williams struck an overhead smash into the net, Gauff broke her compatriot twice in the second before serving out the match to love. "It's really weird. But I'm very thankful for it, because I think if I did go into the match with that, I would have been tense".

The world number two didn't make any more mistakes, keeping his focus to get over the finish line.

Other seeded players advancing on the women's side included No. 13 Petra Martic and No. 14 Sofia Kenin.
