Naomi Osaka's 2021 main goal

 

 

Naomi Osaka’s 2021 main goal? Here’s what it is!

The last tournament officially played by Naomi Osaka in 2020 was that of the US Open, in which she overtook Misaki Doi, Camila Giorgi, Marta Kostjuk, Anett Kontaveit, Shelby Rogers and Jennifer Brady in order, before defeating Belarusian Victoria Azarenka in three sets in the final.

 

 

 

It was the third Slam the young Japanese had won in her career, after the US Open 2018 and the Australian Open 2019. “She discovered that she is a person who needs to take some breaks and be patient,” said Yutaka Nakamura her athletic trainer, at mainichi.jp.

“There are players who are afraid of slowing down their career by optimizing their efforts, but she knows how to keep away from tennis without losing sight of her physical condition. She is a very disciplined young woman who knows how to find the right balance between mental disconnection and maintaining an athletic condition.

It is something that usually costs tennis players a lot, but Naomi has a big advantage. She is also very humble and has other occupations than tennis.”

Talking about the new season, Nakamura said: “I have spoken to her on several occasions about her great dream of winning Olympic gold in Tokyo 2021.

 

 

There are not many opportunities during a professional career to achieve great Olympic results, she knows she could have at most three, in full condition, at the Games. This is why we will make sure that she will be well prepared.”

Naomi has never participated in the Olympics: those in Tokyo will be her first. Today at number 3 in the world, the Japanese was also number 1 in the WTA for 25 weeks. 2020 ended with the cancellation of the October Finals: Australian Ashleigh Barty, winner of 2019 over Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, will once again defend the title next year.

 

 

Talking about the court, the greatests tennis stars on the planet, like Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka herself, Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep and all the others, will come back for the upcoming Australian Open 2021, which will be held in Melbourne from 8 February: it will be the most awaited sports event of the first part of the new season.

 

 

It will be a very spectacualr season, and all of us hope without the problems of the last one, with some presence of the crowd in the courts across the world. Roger Federer will not play the Happy Slam, to well recover from the two surgeries of 2020: he will come back only at the end of February/beginning of March 2021.

‘Looked at differently’: Coach’s racism claims about Novak Djokovic

Published

on

Novak Djokovic’s coach has let rip at the way World No.1 was treated throughout the last year following his Australian Open title.

Djokovic claimed his 18th Grand Slam title after his incredibly dominant Australian Open title charge last month.

community after he was outspoken on quarantine conditions regarding some players.

This has prompted coach Goran Ivanisevic to liken Djokovic’s treatment, following the ill-fated Adria Tour during the coronavirus pandemic, to the cult horror film a ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.

He even went as far as to claim an element of the treatment is racist because he comes from Serbia.

“Everything started with the Adria Tour; they were after him even before that, but in the last year it seemed to me as if I am watching that film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” he told Tennis Majors, while laughing.

“Why is he being treated that way? Probably because of his background, people from Balkans are always looked at differently; also, Novak is not afraid to speak his mind and to fight for causes he believes in.”

Novak Djokovic’s injury critics ‘sad’
At the US Open last year, Djokovic was defaulted after accidentally hitting a ball at a lines judge.

This prompted fierce backlash for the World No.1 after he was eliminated.

But coach Ivanisevic said people wanted to see Djokovic’s downfall at the US Open.

He also said Djokovic was the only one to step up for his current players in Australia.

“What happened at the US Open, it was as if everyone was glad because that kind of s**t happened to him. In Australia he stood up for his fellow players and again – let’s kick Djokovic because he is the only one to speak up, everyone else stays silent,” he said.

He also addressed the latest furore, surrounding Djokovic’s injury halfway through the Australian Open tournament.

Many accused Djokovic of playing up the injury, which occurred during the match against American Taylor Fritz in the Third Round.

But this was preposterous, according to his coach.

He said people accusing Djokovic of an injury was “the saddest thing” and claimed if other players were injured and overcame the problem they would be praised.

It marked the 33-year-old’s first victory at ATP tour-level since the US Open on September 1.

After a match that lasted two-and-a-half hours, the former World No.1 said he feels like he’s playing for his career every time he steps on the court.

“Every time I lose a match I’m getting told to retire, that I should stop playing, that I’m finished and got nothing left or whatever and it’s sad and all of these things,” said the Scotsman.

“I feel like I’m playing for my career just now, each time I step on court, which is a motivation in some ways.

“But it also adds a bit of extra stress. There’s a bit of extra doubt there and on top of that I’m playing with a metal hip, which is hard.

“Trust me, it’s not easy.”

Fans were delighted to see Murray in the winner’s circle again.

So pleased to see Andy lift his level after that 1st set, dug in wonderfully against Hasse who was playing very well indeed. To come back from 0-3 in the 3rd set shows he still has that grit & determination to win together with the skills. Very well done 🎾👏👏👏👍😀

Kei Nishikori also gets much-needed win
Other first-round winners in Rotterdam were Kei Nishikori, 7-6 (7-4) 6-1 over seventh seed and last year’s finalist Felix Auger-Aliassime, Cameron Norrie and qualifier Marton Fucsovics.

The 31-year-old Nishikori is 3-7 since returning from injury and illness in September last year and his next opponent will be an Australian, in Alex de Minaur or John Millman who play their opening round match on Tuesday.

Former World No.1 Murray, now ranked 123rd, was back on court on Monday after losing in Montpellier last week in his first ATP Tour match for four months.

Murray lost the first set to Haase in 34 minutes, saved two break points in the seventh game of the second before winning it in a tie-breaker and then sealed a memorable victory by battling back from 3-0 down in the decider.

“From the mental side yeah, I did well to win because I was really struggling with my game for probably about an hour-and -a-half of that match,” he said.

“I moved pretty well and played for two-and-a-half hours and my hips and groin and stuff felt good, so that was positive.

“But from the tennis side, it was average at best.”
