Naomi Osaka had one of her entertaining press conference in Stuttgart after beating Su-Wei Hsieh in her opening match.

The world no.1 admitted that she had to fight depression for the last few months, but also she shares how she managed to overcome that depression and her mindset on court.

Naomi Osaka’s zen-like approach

The Japanese commented

Enjoying that I’m present, not thinking ahead, not thinking in the past and just enjoying everyone’s company. Sort of like living in the now instead of thinking back to what you did…

Because you know sometimes before you go to sleep you just start thinking about all of the things you could have done. So it’s like that except it’s constant. Now, my mind is sort of blank and I’m just enjoying the now.”

Naomi will face Donna Vekic in the quarters on Thursday. The head to head is 1-0 for Osaka.
