Naomi Osaka has long been touted as “Serena’s successor” after her US Open win over Serena Williams in 2018. But now the Japanese admits that she cannot close the gap that Williams is leaving.
Osaka pays tribute to Williams: Naomi Osaka admits to “not being able to fill the gap left by Serena Williams”. This is reported by “TennisWorldUSA”. Accordingly, the Japanese once wanted to follow in Williams’ footsteps. Today, however, she has to recognize “Serena’s greatness” and her “thank you for everything you have done for our sport.”
Not an easy time: The four-time Grand Slam winner is currently going through a sporting crisis. The trigger was her withdrawal from the Australian Open 2021 with reference to her mental health.
