The tennis world is uncovering a new young tennis star in Wimbledon after 15-year-old Coco Gauff reached the 2nd week at the Championships after dazzling the crowd with her fantastic performance.

However, on the other side, another youngster is struggling as former world no.1 Naomi Osaka is battling with the expectations after she won the US Open and the Australian Open back to back.

Naomi’s downturn commenced after her sudden and mysterious split with her coach Sascha Bajin just 2 weeks after her triumph in Melbourne, and recently the Japanese hit “a new low” after crashing out in the opening match in Wimbledon where she had to leave the press-conference room because she was on the verge of crying.

It seems that Osaka is struggling to deal with the pressure of going from being “no one” to one of the most influencing athletes in the world.

What’s wrong with Naomi Osaka. MOURATOGLOU

Patrick Mouratoglou, Serena Williams’ coach, talking to the National commented

“I think people are worried because she looks unhappy, generally speaking. She looks like she’s suffering from the situation. It’s a fact that she doesn’t look very comfortable and happy like she was maybe when she was winning the two grand slams. I also feel like the pressure is hurting her.

I think she won back-to-back grand slams because she didn’t think too much and she didn’t realize what she was doing and then she became No 1. I think at that point suddenly she realized everything and all the pressure came on her.”

I think Patrick shouldn’t ever comment about Naomi

Why not? They asked him a question and he answered. Clearly the girl has some issues that is preventing her from playing well and who better than one of the best coaches around who understands the game.
Being the only Japanese champion has put her in a fishbowl and she is unaccustomed to being in the spotlight. She needs to take off until the US OPEN and try and regroup. She is still very young and talented so hopefully this will be a glitch on her way to a long and successful career

Everyone struggles at some point in their life. Naomi has proven she is a champion and that, to me, means she will overcome whatever is or may be affecting her. Is it possible people are reading too much into things? Even great tennis players lose occasionally.

Well, who knows? She’s young and very talented and I’m sure in time her No. 1 status will show up again. Yes, she might have to rehire her coach, if that’s possible. One thing for sure she was winning with whoever the coach was and now she’s not.

All I have is attributions and no inferences as to speculations as to her past instructor and their relationship, but I would at least give that a rethought.
