    She’s not a young Serena, she is Naomi Osaka. She is herself

  • Yeah

    Quit getting triggered. Calling someone a young "whoever" is a compliment if that whoever just happens to be one of the best of all time.

    Naomi Osaka is like that adorable character who is like "you guys, i'm serious. don't call me adorable." but everyone is just like "aw <3 "

    She is too adorable . Such a beautiful personality, very humble also. The world is a brighter place with a kind hearted person like Naomi in it.

    All BLACK people are HUMBLE.

    OO7angelo you no angelo this girl is so cute but really you comment is freaking nice and nice

  • Kenichi Tanaka  (Sep 17, 2018)

    Though she is speaking English, her character is totally Japanese.

    Huh?! She is black and Asian. She is both.

    When she admitted that she was practicing her speech under the towel because she wasn’t “that good at talking” she stole my heart. I was like OMG ME TOO!!! I CAN RELATE!! And the fact that she was completely honest about it and didn’t feel the need to change her persona (even for the Ellen show) is just awesome sauce.. love her!

  • Boredgirlivy  (Sep 29, 2018)

    J C right the honesty was like aww

    Hollywood is so confused by Naomi.. she is neither Narcissistic, Materialistic nor superficial. She is modest, humble, soft spoken yet firm and assertive and very very smart. Also she has that one thing sorely missing in Hollywood.. Innocence.

    Janelle Edwards Bet! I'm still waiting for Serena to fight that $17K fine the US Open slapped on her for not 'submitting.' Let's see how far she's willing to take her sexism/racism claims. She was out of order (period). Moreover, as the GOAT, she had complete control over the escalation of events -- starting with her coach. So what if everyone does it? He got caught. She conceded. She got mad and broke her racket. When you're two games away from literally being #1, but you're losing to a rising star wh...

    But why would she be Hollywood? She’s left from another country entirely

  • Sunday 50  (Sep 17, 2018)

    She can hardly speak Japanese but she really seems like a Japanese girl

    Robert Miller one) ethnicity not nationality. Two) black people are not the only race or ethnicity that has been discriminated against. Asians, Latinos, middle easterners, etc.

  • Azusa Oga  (Apr 6, 2019)

    She speaks Japanese! On every TV news in Japan, she answered in Japanese even though it’s not a native level.

  • Sarah Absher  (Sep 17, 2018)

    Excellent interview! I feel so bad other interview she's had when they're just constantly asking her about Serena. Thank you Ellen for making it about her

  • sweatysis  (Jan 27, 2019)

    ATL 1. she’s the winner, not serena. at least ask her about HERSELF not, serena.

  • sola ahmed  (Nov 5, 2018)

  • J Pretty  (Sep 16, 2018)
