Naomi Osaka

New York, NY, USA

K. KANEPI/N. Osaka

6-3, 2-6, 7-5

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Stupid question: Why did you win today?
NAOMI OSAKA: I didn't win.

Q. Oh, you didn't? Sorry. What do you think made the difference today in the end?
NAOMI OSAKA: Well, I think I was a bit emotionally unstable. Like, I think she would be more positive than negative. Like, she didn't have any outbursts or anything, and I had a lot.

Q. Where do you think some of those emotions were coming from? Maybe thinking too far ahead or the way you were playing?
NAOMI OSAKA: Oh, this sucks. (tearing up.)

I kind of feel like I didn't play as good. Like, in my match against Kerber, I played really well, and I just didn't feel the same level my last two matches. Sorry.

Q. What will you learn from this experience, ultimately?
NAOMI OSAKA: Just -- I think I stressed myself a little bit after playing Kerber, and I just had more expectations with myself. So I think the next Grand Slams, if I happen to beat a really good player, I'm just going to take that one match at a time and just play within myself.
