Osaka admitted she is anxious ahead of the US Open
Osaka acknowledged that she has not played well in recent weeks, but she is determined to have a great run at the US Open.
"I feel like I would have lied a day or so ago and said I was really relaxed. But actually, when I practiced today I felt very anxious. I think it’s because I really want to do well because I feel like I haven’t been doing well lately," Osaka said, according to James Gray.
