She is tired of the childish tantrums...

-4 ( +13 / -17 )

I think Naomi needs to come home to Japan and reset her tennis career. She has been abroad for a long time but Japan is where she has the biggest fan base and admiration from the public.

Must be great to be the biggest earner without having to win anything significant for well over a year.

Too bad flower bear.

The Japanese dont care about her. 

then why is she ALWAYS in the Japanese press?

Smeh

I think Naomi needs to come home to Japan and reset her tennis career. She has been abroad for a long time but Japan is where she has the biggest fan base and admiration from the public.

Seeing as she has lived in the US since she was 3 years old, this makes a lot of sense.

Yeah, she could come to Japan to learn about respect and manners. It would be good for her.

Surprise, surprise! Babysitting can be very tiring.

speaks fluent english not much Japanese , brought up in the American culture since she was 3 , made her tennis career in America, looks more African American than Japanese, dont see much Samurai in her

id say she more American than Japanese

then why is she ALWAYS in the Japanese press?

because Japanese can claim her as Japanese being a home grown hero, except she grew up in the US since she was 3

I seriously doubt it. More like superficial respect and manners.

Naomi's Japanese passport says otherwise.

As usual, almost universal negativity on here toward Naomi. She is unapologetically loud, black and proud - and, yes, calls it as it is - which seems to put middle-aged white guys noses out of joint.

Sorry, but Naomi isn't going away, guys. Biggest name and biggest money earner in female world sport, and the J-press and public will rightly keep up their massive interest in her.

Naomi's **Japanese passport says otherwise.**

referring to her cultural upbringing, a passport only proves your citizenship, she had an American passport prior to her 22nd birthday

Naomi has been brought up in the US since she was 3, doubt she remembers much of her infant. toddler years. shes most definaelty acts more American than Japanese. For a home grown Japanese girl she certainly doesnt speak Japanese very well, even now with a Japanese passport she still lives mostly in the US on her American visa

Readers, once again, we ask you not to get fixated on Osaka's nationality. That is not what this story is about.

and the J-press and public will rightly keep up their massive interest in her.

and good for her, hving that Japanese flag against your name in tournamets keeps the fan base interested and the money rolling in, her American visa ensures she can stay in the US indefinitely

Fissette calls halt to coaching Naomi Osaka

Call it for what it is. Fissette drops Naomi Osaka.

I would too. You never know when she'll say, "I'm not having enough fun," and drop you first.

I think Naomi needs to come home to Japan and reset her tennis career. 

Pretty sure living in a place where she doesn't speak the local language would just additionally stress her unstable psyche...

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

She's very young. She's made her money. Maybe it's time she follows another dream and quits being an entertainer for critical no minds.

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

I thought she was going to be the next big thing, still might be if she can overcome her problems.

Honestly I think she is too frail mentally and quick to blame things going on around her. Wish her well, but I think if she can focus she might win a few more majors if she can find some consistency.
