Naomi Osaka says that hitting with Andy Murray helped her confidence

Naomi includes Andy Murray among the people that (sort of) helped her to win the Australian Open

Andy Murray and Naomi Osaka

When Naomi Osaka was asked about the (possible) retirement of Andy Murray, she admitted that she was said because she lost a “potential friend” on tour.

In fact, both Naomi and Andy have rather strong humor and they looked thrilled to train together in Brisbane.

After winning the Australian Open, Naomi became rather active on the social media. On Monday she sent a post thanking the people that helped her to win this slam and a “potential friend”, Andy Murray pretended to be upset for not being part of the “thank you” list saying “Disappointed not to be mentioned in this post after our hit in Brisbane but congrats anyway.”

Naomi was quick in replying “ooo my bad. Thanks Andy for giving me confidence after our hit in Brisbane LOL ”

A new bromance? Lovely
