Naomi Osaka a tennis player comeback

Naomi Osaka a tennis player said on Tuesday that she wants to have fun on the court this year after winning on her comeback from a tearful exit at the US Open in September.

After her third-round loss at Flushing Meadows, the four-time Grand Slam champion, who has dropped to 13 in the rankings, said Naomi Osaka a tennis player was “dealing with some stuff” and would take a break from tennis indefinitely.

The former world number one from Japan mainly had kept a low profile before flying into Melbourne last week to defend her Australian Open title. The 24-year-old was far from her best, but she defeated France’s 61st-rated veteran Alize Cornet 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 in the Melbourne Summer Set tournament, and she described her return to Australia. As a “breath of fresh air.”

Osaka is determined to bypass the “extreme build-up” of emotions that caused her to feel “sad” last year.

“I feel like I only really have one major goal this year, and it’s completely unrelated to results,” she said at a press conference, repeating her stance last year about the negative impact they had on her mental health. “For me, I want to feel like I have fun every time I step onto the court. I could walk off the court knowing that I gave it my all even if I lost.

“Also, in the press room, I have a goal that I’m never going to cry again, so hopefully that creations out in my favor,” she added. “I’m the type of person who is overly concerned with results, rankings, and other such things.

All I need to do this time is find a way to enjoy the game again because that’s why I started playing in the 1st place. During her self-imposed absence, Osaka attempted to live an everyday life away from the stresses of the tennis tour. Expending time with family or friends also participating in sleepovers, which she had never done before.

“During the off-season, I just hung out with my friends and talked a lot to my family, and I felt like that was a way of decompressing the pressure I had on myself,” she explained. Her victory on Tuesday set up a meeting with Belgium’s Maryna Zanevska, who defeated Croatia’s Petra Martic in straight sets.
