Osaka admitted she is anxious before US Open

Osaka acknowledged that she hasn't played well in recent weeks but is determined to have a big US Open run. "I feel like I would have lied a day ago or so and said that I was really relaxed.

But actually, like, when I practiced today I felt very anxious. I think it's 'cause I really want to do well 'cause I feel I haven't been doing well lately," Osaka said, per James Gray.
