The Japanese player, who defeated the American in two years ago in US Open final, said: “I have this huge respect for her.

It’s someone that I’ve, you know, looked up to my entire life. So I still feel a bit shocked whenever she reaches out. And, I don’t know.

I don’t say hi to her or anything because … I get so nervous. She always seems like she’s doing something important, so I don’t want to interrupt.

And then — I really want to talk to her about life and stuff and, like, how she manages to do things on and off the court. But … I don’t wanna be disrespectful to her and, like, try to talk to her like she’s my mentor while she’s still playing.

So I’m kinda just chillin’ on that.” Osaka does not want to be compared to the 39-year-old legend: “I would have to win 21-something more Grand Slams to be her peer.

She has so many lists of accomplishments.

So no way. II’ve just been very grateful that I’m even playing. I’ve been trying to, like, take every day as a new experience and learn from everything.”
