In fact, I dont think I had a big ups and downs in the game. The first set was basically served, and my condition didnt go down. It just gave her too many chances to grab the second serve. I think shes still playing quite well, but shes playing very well, and thats her consistent strength. Naoto Osaka concluded after the race.
I think I played a little passive throughout the game, too defensive. But I also know that it is inevitable to deal with her. Naomi Osaka continued.
Sometimes she will be shallow, then I have the opportunity, but I did not anticipate, so I failed to follow up in time. I think this score is very critical.
Although Naomi Osaka could not go any further, the two-time Grand Slam winners will return to the top of the world next week because Ka Priscova lost to Anderscu in the quarter-finals.
I think it takes a lot of energy to come to this position, and only hard work can be done. I cant be influenced by outside comments, Naoto Osaka said. I must continue to work hard and believe that the results will gradually show up. I cant get too entangled with winning or losing.
