The horribly rude djokovic would be wise to pay attention to Ms. Osaka's grace and composure on the court and try to emulate her irreproachable conduct. (lower case d is intentional).

Osaka ordered the school to pay some damages for emotional distress, but it said the rule that students’ hair must be black did not violate regulations In a split ruling.

The haters who dumped on her about firing her coach,have had to eat humble pie.Not known to on this site,but Naomi has proven she didn't need him.And the thumbs down are weak as per usual.

Osaka. Simply a matter of emulating Federer. But with a social conscience, which is much appreciated. She will rule women's tennis for this decade.

That’s simply impossible. She is only seeming to be calmer because the opponents all were weak and could be easily defeated. That’s why she also won the tournament. During any future losing streak you will surely see her quickly showing her real herself again. lol

During any future losing streak you will surely see her quickly showing her real herself again.

Losers focus on future losses. Winners say congratulations on the current win.

Congrats Osaka! Well done!
