Naomi Osaka has always professed her love for Serena Williams that was her childhood idol. The Japanese lived her dream after beating the American in the last US Open final and even if there was a bit of a drama, that (happy) memory will stay for stay forever with her.

I always wanted to be like Serena Williams

During a recent interview, Naomi talked about her admiration for Serena to say

“I don’t think anyone can become the next Serena and Venus. I feel like they’re, like, legend. I don’t think it’s possible with the way tennis is now. I just feel like I want to do the best that I can and hopefully, that’s enough.

One of the things I remember was Serena playing Heather Watson, and I was screaming at my TV, like, Come on, Serena, you can do it.”

Naomi might not be the next Serena but if she keeps on winning slams after slams…. you’ll never know!

I am one of the main columnists for Tennistonic.com and I take care of our social media platforms including Facebook and Linked In. I fell in love with tennis after the epic 2008 Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. From that moment I started to check all the possible stats and the stories behind the tennis players. I have a huge passion for Roger Federer, a great respect for Rafael Nadal and I am interested in the newcomers. Aryna Sabalenka and Naomi Osaka are my favorite players on the WTA tour.
