This post I will update with Naomi Osaka famous quotes from her pressers:

When asked outcome of her dream about playing against SW
I don't dream to lose
When asked what her Dad does during her matches
We don't really know. I always thought I should put a GoPro on him during my matches
Asked what she plans to do for celebration
Sleep! I'm not really a social person like that. Maybe I'll play video games
Asked how she would spend her $3.8 mil prize money
I don't spend much money on myself, so if my family is happy, I'm happy

Osaka is like Sloan Stevens,, very streaky. she is insane good when On,, but insane bad when off. She won't win more than 3-4 majors at most.

Already blowing up in Japan. This image is from their live news. Next tournament for Naomi is Tokyo, they probably have parade lined up.
Its a great win since her Mom is from Hokkaido, the region which recently got rocked by a quake.

I'm really happy too for the Japanese to have some good news since the earthquake disaster.

Like 2011 Women's World Cup.

Question is how will Naomi being only 1/2 Japanese affect her endorsements money ? will she not get as much as lets say Kei would get ? or doesn't matter ...

I'd rather be concerned about how well received she will be instead of the money. I'm sure she can make living off of whatever half of that is. This win was historic and Japan Federation wanted to support her from beginning too so a great end for them.

Probably making an effort to become more fluent. She can definitely understand since she grew up in Osaka for first 3 years of her life. I wonder if she is understands Haitian too.
Probably yes. I think I hear Haitian-creole it in FL. That prize-money will certainly afford her more opportunities to learn.

She made lots of these great running forehands in key points.
Yeah, her opponents underestimated her running forehand. They tried to stretch her wide but the pace she was able to produce while on the run made her opponents unable to rush the net and actually having to back up.

Such a great life they have to travel the world.
It is... but those who have a focus on doing well at tournaments can't have many distractions so their day probably only consists of staying at the hotel, practicing, then playing match. Afterwards if they win they probably need to recover for next day so I don't think they would have tons of time to explore unless they lose early or have off days in between matches.

She has a perfect form on that shot. You can put a cup of water on top of her head and it would not spill. and she is using left arm as balancing point to stay in perfect balance

Osaka is like Sloan Stevens,, very streaky. she is insane good when On,, but insane bad when off. She won't win more than 3-4 majors at most.
She won her first 4 years younger than Sloan though. She's been streaky as a young player. 3-4 majors would be an amazing career though.

Now watch, every teenage girls are now going to try to copy Osaka service motion which is pinpoint service motion. Not sure if it is right for all girls, really
I don't understand what this is supposed to mean. Most WTA players already serve with a pinpoint motion, including Serena, Pliskova, Muguruza, Halep, Kerber, Wozniacki. . . In fact, tell me, who in the WTA DOESN'T serve with a pinpoint serve?

does that mean pinpoint serve is good for girly men as well ?

She is from another planet. Now I see how she could serve out the match yesterday under those circumstances.
