Tsitsipas: I Asked Osaka What's It All About?


Stefanos Tsitsipas reached out to Naomi Osaka after her statement on social injustice to learn more.

After losing to Milos Raonic in the Western & Southern Open semifinals, Tsitsipas revealed he texted Osaka for more information and she responded.

Osaka: I Just Wanted To Create Awareness

"I texted and asked her what was this social injustice all about? Because I'm not really watching the news," Tsitsipas said. "I wasn't following at the time. I did come across something when the TV was open, when the TV was on. I saw something. I'm not quite sure if it was because of that.

"Yeah, and she explained to me what was going on. So I did understand."

Tsitsipas says while he doesn't follow the WTA closely, he admires Osaka.

"I'm happy for her. She's in a good streak, a good run," Tsitsipas said. "She's playing well. She's playing well, definitely. Honestly, I don't really watch much woman's tennis, but I admire her a lot."
