Naomi Osaka lost to Yulia Putintseva in Wimbledon on Monday. The Japanese player's post match press conference didn't last long as she did not want to speak a lot. Osaka asked the moderator if she could leave the presser.
“Can I leave? I feel like I’m about to cry. The key for me was just, like, having fun, I guess, like learning how to have fun, kind of taking pressure off myself. I hope I can somehow find a way to do that", said the world No.
2. John McEnroe commented on Naomi Osaka's straight-set loss to Yulia Putintseva on the Centre Court on Monday. The American seven-time Grand Slam winner said: "I don't think Naomi is very comfortable on grass. You need that intensity and be on it.
She just does not look like she's all there. She's distracted, a lot of things have happened and it seems she has lost her confidence, which is amazing from where she was two or three months ago." Putintseva said: "I did a good job.
I think my grass court play is getting better. I remember how much I hated grass courts. With my coach, I was fighting. I was saying that I don't want to play here. I used to play more on clay courts. Clay courts it's more spin, drop shots, serve kick and stuff.
When I came on grass, was totally opposite. For my mental, it was like killing myself. It took some time."
