Naomi Osaka is one of the most recognizable faces in women tennis and she is planning to increase her presence on social media during this Coronavirus pandemic.
The Japanese sensation had an entertaining training with Venus Williams that was “the real deal” as per Naomi’s words that was expecting just some light stretching. Naomi also had an interesting chat with Teen Vogue when she also shared being star-struck when meeting Serena Williams for the first time.
Apparently, Naomi wants to go for more and she asked on Twitter about the player that she should interview. Of course, tennis fans pointed at the usual players such as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Serena Williams. Coco Gauff was also added to the list and there was an interesting suggestion fro Stefanos Tsitsipas: Gael Monfils.
