Maybe Osaka is writing about Serena Williams? I really don't see any characteristics of "leadership, confidence, teamwork and resilience" from her.

Can't wait to not buy it.

Last I checked there were 43 ladies between her and Champ.

“The leadership, confidence, teamwork, and resilience I’ve learned on the court

I rather see the book about things she “learned” OFF the court.

I said see, because it would also be a “picture” book? Not a regular book with text in it?

"This picture shows you how to fire a coach when they ask you to do something you don't want to do, this one shows how to cry at a press conference so that the media will only ask softball pre-approved questions, this shows you how to claim injury or illness to get out of a tournament you can't be bothered to play in, and this one shows you how to eat a whole donut in one bite."

Readers, there is no need to make snide remarks.

The world is full of inspiring women and none of them are featured in this article.

Only for girls?

Shouldn’t it be ‘The way Champs used to play?”

All I can think of is her as an example of how NOT to play in so many instances, from firing coaches to up and quitting because she didn't like the interviews.

She's a fine Japanese female role model, regardless of her recent success or lack of. It's a picture book for kids and parents of those kids which I'm not part of that target market so it's of no value to me.

Does anyone actually read the article or just the headlines & then draw snide conclusions??

The story is based on Osaka's organization Play Academy, which provides grants and training for community sports organizations.

GO NAOMI !!

This picture shows you how to fire a coach when they ask you to do something you don't want to do, this one shows how to cry at a press conference so that the media will only ask softball pre-approved questions, this shows you how to claim injury or illness to get out of a tournament you can't be bothered to play in, and this one shows you how to eat a whole donut in one bite.

The level of drama here has broken the records
