  • And now it's time to hear from with a few question and a answers, our champion, Naomi Osaka.

  • Hmm yeah firstly I wanna congratulate Vika.

  • I actually don't wanna put you in more finals, I didn't really enjoy that. 

  • Hmm it was a really tough match for me, and yeah it's really inspiring for me because I used to watch you play here when I was younger,

  • so just to have the opportunity to play you is really great, and I learned a lot, so thank you.

  • I wanna thank my team, they are over there somewhere, just for sticking with me, I know the beginning of the year wasn't that great.

  • So just thank you for believing in me.

  • And I wanna thank the WTA, the tournament directors, the tournament organizers, the ball staff, the ground crew, and the US TA for providing a safe environment,

  • and also the sponsors, J.P. Morgan, everyone for making this tournament possible.

  • And I wanna thank all my people, I'm sorry for making it long, I wanna thank all my people at home, my mom, my dad, my sister, thank you, I wouldn't be here without you guys.

  • Naomi, there was a moment right after the match concluded, you crossed over to the other side of the net, and you just lay down on the court.

  • What was running through your mind?

  • Because I always see everyone sort of collapse after match point, but you may injure yourself so I wanted to do it safely.

  • You were the first finalist since 1994 that last 25 who lost the opening set, lost the match.

  • What was the turning point for you in coming back and winning?

  • I mean for me I just thought it would be very embarrassing to lose this in under an hour, so I just have to try as hard as I can, and stop having a really bad attitude.

  • You said from the beginning you had seven matches, seven masks, seven names.

  • What was the message you wanted to send Naomi?

  • Well, what was the message that you got was more the question, I feel like the point is to make people start talking.

  • What were you most gratified about the awareness that you raised?

  • I mean for me I've been inside of the bubble so I'm not really sure what's really going on in outside world,

  • all I can tell is what's going on on social media, and for me I feel like you know the more retweet it gets or... that's so lame but you know the more people talk about it.

  • What are you most proud of about your time here in New York?

  • I think I fought for every match starting with the Cincinatti tournament leading up to here so.

  • Congratulations, the champion of the 2020 US open, Naomi Osaka.

  • Please Naomi lift up your trophy.
