'It wasn’t necessarily the happiest memory'


//

Naomi Osaka has revealed she’s been trying to forget her US Open grand slam victory over Serena Williams in what was “not the happiest memory” of her blossoming career.

A tearful Osaka claimed her first grand slam title amid an infamous on-court meltdown from Williams in which she accused umpire Carlos Ramos of sexism after she was issued three code violations in her straight sets loss.

On Tuesday, following her second-round victory at the China Open, Osaka made the heartbreaking admission about the greatest achievement of her career to date.

“There’s a lot of stuff I want to say about how I felt and whatever,” she said.

“For me, I don’t know, I don’t know, the memory of the US Open is a little bit bittersweet.

“Right after, the day after, I really didn’t want to think about it because it wasn’t necessarily the happiest memory for me.

“I wanted to just push it to the side…I just sort of wanted to move on at that point.”

The Japanese star made the comparison to green-tea ice cream to clarify her point to the media.

“When you bite into it, it’s sweet, but also very strong — that’s how that memory feels to me.

“Of course I’m happy that I won a Grand Slam, I don’t think there’s anything that can take away from that… but I feel like it was so strange, I didn’t just want to think about it.

Osaka did away with Kzakh qualifier Zarina Diyas in straight sets to advance to the third-round of the China Open.

She will face America’s Danielle Rose Collins.
