Naomi Osaka Consoles Crying Coco Gauff in Post-Game Interview

Naomi Osaka Consoles Crying Coco Gauff in Post-Game Interview

Heading to practice before her 6-4, 6-4 victory over 2018 Australian Open champion and two-time U.S. Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki on Saturday, Andreescu ran into Gauff.

Naomi Osaka embraced Cori Gauff.

She had lost in the third round at the US Open, after two impressive wins to start the tournament and an earlier fourth-round appearance at Wimbledon, and her disappointment was painfully clear.

"No, you're wonderful. It's better to do it here than going into the shower and crying", Osaka responded.

Osaka, the reigning Australian Open champion also, is excited by the prospect, but also more than a bit intimidated. While wiping away tears she said, (Osaka) asked if I could do the on-court interview with her and I said no because I knew I was going to cry the whole time, but she encouraged me to do it. "So it was pretty cool". She also nabbed the first break, as Gauff committed a game-ending double fault in the following game.

Townsend's serve-and-volley style against the 19-year-old Andreescu's scrambling baseline abilities should provide a fascinating contrast. Osaka's edge was her ability to remain composed at the most crucial of moments. She won the next four points to win the game and the set - and followed that by breaking Gauff's serve to win the first game of the second set. "Yes!" before patting her heart.


Osaka silenced a packed Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd with a ruthless performance to progress to the last 16 at Flushing Meadows. "Just haven't been able to get over the hump". She's No. 1. She's only 21. A lot of people who weren't sure. "But sometimes it goes the other way", Halep said. "This was a huge, monumental moment".

"I thought it was very nice to see camaraderie at the highest level in sports".

"But my top priority right now is just doubles".

The Spanish 18-time Grand Slam victor will meet South Korean qualifier Chung Hyeon for a spot in the last 16.

It's also because the player on the other side of the net was Osaka, born in Japan and raised in the US, young enough herself to only own three tour-level titles - and talented enough that two of them came at Grand Slam tournaments.

Then Babos, serving to stay in the tournament at 5-6, finally blinked with a series of misfires from the baseline to go match point down. I think we're all just kind of pushing each other.


"I think she really showed sportsmanship tonight", Gauff said.

"I feel like of course we're going to play multiple times in the future".

By moving forward at every opportunity, something rarely seen these days on tour.

"She was crying; she won".

"I'm happy to be in the fourth round for one more time".

The crowd applauded not only the handsome moment between two of tennis' stars but also the touching words from Osaka. "It's really insane for me". Maybe next time I'll have a different result. Because I didn't know what to do. At Roland Garros, Amanda Anisimova, 17, became the first player born in the 2000s to reach a Grand Slam semifinal. "But I think that today definitely I learned a lot".
