Kinda. She's the human rocket launcher off the ground. Incredible offensive shotmaker with huge and easy power - you should check highlights of winners from her Wimbledon victories!
I recall the matches a little. She hit Genie off the court...,in 2014... when she was playing well. And Sharapova in 2011 or '12...too lazy to look up.

Osaka and Djokovic the best two interviewees in the sport? Tsitsipas also has potential. I also love how down to earth and adorable Halep is.
Don't forget Kasatkina. She hasn't had opportunities to interview much but watch the ones at Indian Wells 2018, she's hilarious.

Osaka has a firm grip on best interviewee for the women, I like a few others too, but Osaka is the best. I'm not sure about the men. All the Big 4 give great interviews when they loosen up a bit. And Tsitsipas was funny a couple days ago. I even find Murray's dry humour very funny for the most part. I've always found Fed extremely funny, and with Djokovic I find that some of his jokes come off a little flat sometimes, but I always get the sense like he really thinks about what he says and articulates it pretty well.

Perhaps it's not a common answer, to find all the Big 4 and Tsitsipas funny, but there's room for all different personalities for me.

I'd agree.
Of the Big 4, Roger can be disarming and genuine, but he's also very corporate. It's fun when he exposes his silly/dorky side.
Andy is droll and melancholy, but very witty.
Rafa has the least facility with English, but has improved. He has almost a wise Zen philosopher vibe to him.

Novak, I think, is truly brilliant, eclectic and the most well-rounded. Agassi had some of that same searching for life vibe, though I find Novak to be of significantly higher intelligence and also more gracious to others in his pressers. Of players over the years, arguably Ashe was the greatest intellectual, and also concerned about making a difference, which he did. I loved the guy, but he didn't bring much humor to the mic.
