"I just want someone who will watch the sunset with me."

This message shared by Naomi Osaka through a post on X has unleashed many reactions from fans, who have speculated on the words of the Japanese girl, even going to write like her and her partner Cordae are in crisis.

"The hell did Cordae do now?" wrote X account @TendzzXO, for example.

Last July, Naomi and Cordae became parents to a baby girl, Shai. After giving birth, Naomi is focusing on returning to the court again. Her comeback is scheduled for the beginning of 2024, first at the United Cup, then at the Australian Open, a tournament that the Japanese has already won twice.

The girl and the rapper Cordae have been in a relationship for years, but on their social profiles they keep their relationship very private, sharing little about their common life.

Obviously no one, except Naomi herself, knows who that post was (and if) addressed to, and for now there is nothing regarding a crisis between the couple, but fans have obviously launched into speculation and conjecture.

Naomi Osaka returns to the court

The 2024 tennis season will restart with the United Cup. The new event, which replaced the ATP Cup, sees both players from the men's circuit and the men's women's circuit take to the court, together representing the same flag.

As in the first edition, it will take place between the old and new years: It will start on 29 December 2023 and will end on 7 January 2024. The first team certain to participate is Australia

The United States will be led by Taylor Fritz and Jessica Pegula, both protagonists again in 2023; with them there will be Ram, Krawczyk, Dolehide.

The same goes for Poland: there are the respective number ones of the two circuits, namely Iga Swiatek and Hubert Hurkacz. The same goes for Greece, which brings Stefanos Tsitsipas and Maria Sakkari, two top 10 players who were Italy's opponents in the last edition. Naomi Osaka returns for Japan, preparing her return to the stage after injuries and above all motherhood.

Speaking of the latter, there is Angelique Kerber with Alexander Zverev. For Canada, Felix Auger Aliassime and Leylah Fernandez cannot be missing. For now, Spain will not present either Carlos Alcaraz or Rafael Nadal.
