Naomi Osaka is about to start her run in Paris where she will try to win her 3rd consecutive slam on a surface that she used to struggle, at least before.
The Japanese has always stated that winning slams is her main objective and that is also confirmed by the fact that Naomi has 3 titles and 2 of them are majors (Us Open and Australian Open).
About winning the gold medal
During an interview with ITF World, Naomi explained why she really wants to win the gold in Japan at the upcoming Olympic games to comment
“I do think about winning gold, and it would mean a lot if I was able to achieve that and win a gold medal because you dream of such moments. When you are a kid, you don’t dream of silver or bronze. Even though winning silver or bronze is an incredible achievement, every athlete wants gold, and it has always been something that I have imagined.
Winning gold would be the biggest thing I would have achieved in my career, although in some ways that is simply because of timing.
I contest Grand Slams every year, but an Olympic Games is only once every four years, so there are not many opportunities to become an Olympic champion. Everyone who competes at the Olympics wants to be an Olympic champion, so that would be my aim.”
What about also playing mixed doubles with Kei Nishikori?
