"Sport, leading to a grand slam in which he faced one of her idol's Serena Williams. Osaka's rise to fame has inspired millions of fans around the world. But it's her pointed activism for justice that has earned her respect and admiration from the black lives matter, community and many others. Here to tell us more Saraya Nadia McDonald, the award winning culture critic at the undefeated she recently wrote about Osaka strategy and impact. We're really happy to have you on our body politics, Araya. Thank you so much for having me so I have been just completely fascinated by Naomi Osaka. In part because I have a number of friends who are Japanese or Japanese American, including ones who live in Tokyo, and we have talked about race and ethnicity in the Japanese culture. She's such a format breaker in terms of how people think of someone who is Japanese black. And she has not been shy whatsoever about claiming all the parts of herself. I find that so refreshing. So what do you see as her role in the zeitgeist as well as her role in athletics? It's funny because it feels like she's just getting started. It's just been amazing to see her sort of progress and the way that she thinks about herself and her celebrity. And how she can use it. Her father, Leonard, Francois, like deliberately followed the paradigm that Richard Williams set that influence of the Williams sisters and what they were able to accomplish with so Was so instrumental in her being who she is now both in just like Watching them and their professional success, but also how they use their platform, particularly with Venus. She really pushed and pushed for pay parity in tennis. Along with what we see so as the fight for you, no racial equality and dignity that Serena has spoken out about with you, Naomi kind of taking on that mantel on this huge stage. With the U. S open with the seven Mass that she decided to wear the thing I find incredible about Naomi not just Naomi, but the people she has around her. Specifically Leonard, her father and her trainer, Abdul Sylla, who was also for a time Serena's traitor, because I think one of the things that is actually really important about Abdul's role in Naomi's career is that He's not just preparing her physically, but also psychologically where she wasn't sort of riddled with self doubt that with springing from her identity Yeah, yeah. I mean, let me just jump in for a second and ask about social media because social media like you've outlined these beautiful connections between kind of Serena and Venus is path and Naomi's path. All of them rather have been able to apply blackness in a very powerful way as they shaped their image, and it sounds like her trainer. Abdul was also part of You know, giving her access to that strength, but When Venus and Serena were young, there wasn't social media, which is also a space of taunting and trolling. I mean, I'm not sure if if she's ever talked about that, I don't think she spends like a ton of time. You know, sort of sorting through her replies on the genius is one of her. Biggest influences as an athlete, You know, obviously there's Serena. But the other one is Kobe Bryant. If you want to talk about that sort of Mamba mentality that I think she is really kind of taken on in terms of Naomi doesn't necessarily talk a lot. But that doesn't mean that she didn't have a lot to say She's very strategic, but she understands. What it means when she is in front of a camera. So let's talk about those masks. He she were seven mass with the names of black people killed by police or vigilantes. Briana Taylor Ahmad are very Trayvon, Martin, Philando, Castille and Tamir Rice among them. And people as we know have lost their sports careers over taking a stand or specifically taking the knee. What do you think she gained? And what do you think she risked? What I think she gained is actually kind of incredible one. There's actually a peace of mind one thing that I kept hearing over a route through the tournament after it became clear that she had a mask for every round. Was this idea that perhaps this activism was going to be a distraction for her or how incredible it wass, you know that she could maintain sort of the steely focus as she is wearing these masks and calling for attention to the movement for black lives, and I actually thought that was sort of backward. I think When you are our living officially now in the midst of this pandemic when we are so physically isolated from each other, and that can feel psychologically isolating, too, and You're seeing his images of black life being extinguished and captured on cell phone video there so much despair. That can well up and that's I think what makes it really difficult to concentrate and really difficult to work? And it's that feeling of helplessness. Like how what can we do to stop this? I actually don't think that Naomi was distracted at all. I think she came into the U. S open with a mission and a purpose. And the other thing is that This isn't her first rodeo. She come with two grand slams in her belt already, So this is a thing that she knows she could do. She knows Who she is decided to basically sort of pick up and carry on her back. And I think if anything that has strengthened her and then when you have these Personal video messages from Marcus are very Ahmad's father and Sabrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon, Martin. It further propels. You know that sense that what you're doing is just and right. And to keep going and you know, once you've got that is your directive. You just go in terms of what she might have lost. I can't imagine that any of her sponsors would be so foolish as to say. We're going to cut off this relationship because you have decided to be vocal that black lives, including your own matter. That would be incredibly strong, excited and even there, you know, in terms of her relationship with her sponsors, she has had to make sure that they see her as a black woman. Soraya McDonald. Thank you so much. I really enjoyed our conversation. Alfred.

"Last half the fourth half of these men's Bolaise Draws Aka the bottom half the but I'm answering the women's drove is headlined by carrying applicable who retired in the Rome final didn't have much to give in that room final against Simona Halep we know that she can play well on clay I just don't know that this is the right set up for her with the cold weather with the. Likely slower conditions. Yeah. I mean she's going to really have to grind if she wants to do well, she won't Rome last year like she knows how to play on clay she plays well on the faster class should guard as well. We shall see her condition in Rome wasn't great. The injury is concerning this close to a grand slam. So it's really hard to know what to expect. This is just a different kind of clay. Yeah. We have to accept that Oh yeah someone co at the top of that bottom half she would play mobile with in the run of sixteens Rebecca would play cannon in the round of Sixteen Kavita with either keys or Kerber and Petro.

"naomi osaka" Discussed on Ringer Dish
"Is a thing that happened to Jennifer Lawrence among other celebrities years ago. Couch Gay Yes, but like somehow this sense of violation from the very start isn't there but everything after that, you know at the end day both pictures are on the Internet. It's the same thing that the lawyer says and it applies to both in its. So what we're really doing is a sociological reading of how people respond to it like on the Internet, and that is always just very dicey and I think But because who are all the people on the Internet you can't you can never know and you can't hold like everyone accountable for a bunch of an anonymous accounts, but there's a market difference there is. And some of it has to be because like. Whether it's some puritanical thing or whether I think it's because the way Chris Evans is a man is identified as a sex object is the way that Emily Radic Hausky is a woman is identified as a sex object the way that we understand male and female sex objects in this country or in this Internet culture is still very different Yeah and there is definitely a double standard in that and so it's easier for the captain the Chris Evans thing to become a joke I mean I. I do think that like even within the context of the last vendors movie, there was like a whole joke about captain America's but like within the movie answer. Don't don't get me wrong. It's a really nice but and I had a great time with the jokes but there is ultimately something and just how we respond to the sexualization of of men and women and to what a sense we allow them to assign their. Control over it. Yeah. That makes any sense. Yeah. I think that also Chris Evans. Even when he's like hanging out on the side of a red carpet waiting for Jenny slate, finish her press obligations as he was five years ago. It's just a Ford at a level of privacy and like kind of like. Remove that I don't think Emily Rakowski gets and like I don't think I've ever really thought or discuss with you on this pod like or those Emily Radha cousy photos stage like where those pop you know like we don't like consider that like we just like gashes. Paparazzi. Target and it's like you've been moving Chris Evans shows up into Paparazzi photos and like very so much disbelief that we're like are those staged. You know like it's just sort of a different economy around the two of them. And I do think a lot of it is respecting commodification because Lord knows Chris Evans have been commodified. I mean Captain America and marble the definition of commodification right but it's like less personal him yeah and I think that's a little bit because he is in the marble machine and so he's commodified through a movie and through action figures and very modified Captain America, and she is commodified as a model and and and it is her and she is part of that like super. Personality. Myself driven. genre of fame that is specific both two models and to like influence or Instagram, and I would say that she kinda has the she's both in the ven diagram. So and she does you know examined some of that in the piece and that's a relatively new area of fame. Even though I think we've been living in it for a decade. Now I think you can let you trace it back to reality and then the Kardashians but your favor people I know Juliet but it's The lines get. Blurrier or maybe they don't get blurrier but I think we as consumers get either lazier were Kinda just don't examine the situation and just kind of take things at face value and I think what we're always talking about it's on jam session is that you're not supposed to just take things at face value you check the sources you analyze the context you think about kind of. Information is being given to you and there's kind of an ubiquity to that type of celebrity that I don't examine as much as I should. Probably. Curate. I need to examination to the history of Paparazzi photos. I'm sure it relates to the growth of Los Angeles as a as a cultural hub. Something as as sitting here, I'm just thinking about like. where. Did this obviously I know how it's thrived through tabloids both print and online, and you know the last thirty years but it's not like this always happens. You know it's not like they're always photographers trailing famous people obviously evolved as Hollywood evolved but. It's almost like a given that that this kind of culture exists in I've been. So imagine it like my whole life I've always loved celebrities and love pop culture but. I think that just like the line is so blurry and has been totally erased between like what's acceptable and what's not and It's kind of crazy like Harry and Meghan seemed like bad people were pushing back against. Paparazzi stuff sometimes like even say it sounds laughable but I don't know it's just This I just encourage you to read her piece nothing that we say could could really capture how effective and moving it is. So check IT A. New York magazine the cut. Agree. Let's move on. Let's celebrate some people. Let's begin with Naomi Osaka us. Champion yeah us. Open. Champion why do I say opium You US Open champion Naomi Osaka let me tell you the women's half of the US Open this year was so inspiring I loved it. I had the time of my life Serena Williams my longtime hero made it to the semifinals and then she had tremendous match. She ultimately lost to Victoria as Ranka Juliette if you're familiar with Victoria as Aranka. Viga right. But so viga was. Kind of like a big women's tennis star, and at the top seated top ranked in the first half of the decade, and then had to take some time back from tennis primarily because she was involved in a really really tough custody battle and part of the custody battle prevented her from travelling to be in other tournaments because she wanted to be with her son. Leo and that took a toll obviously on her ability to even do her job, which is playing tennis, and also you know that's a tough. Situation to go through. But her game is back and she was on absolutely incredible run and there are a couple sets I'm sorry I won't do full like Chrissy Everett tennis the whole time but like why are you watching visa and a couple sets in the semifinals and also in the first set of the final was like she ascended to an astral plane it was so exciting and I will just say that the semifinal where she played against Serena. Williams who is also a mother of a young child. Like to see these two women playing at this level and they are also mothers and have come back for it I I thought it was Rad. I thought it was so exciting and maybe ESPN leaned a little bit too much into the battle of the MOMS stuff. But also think about how rarely you see totally professional athletes who have come who have done a physical feet which is. Giving birth, which has his own amazing athletic challenge, and then are playing at the top of their game. It was amazing via one..

Naomi Osaka recovers brilliantly to beat Victoria Azarenka and clinch title
"Is one of second US Open tennis championship and third Grand Slam title overall. By coming back yesterday to beat Victoria Azarenka and three cents and the final of Flushing Meadows, Osaka's 166363 victory in New York and to our trophies from the 2018 U. S Open and 2019 Australian Open. The 20 year old born in Japan is now based in the U. S.
"naomi osaka" Discussed on No Challenges Remaining
"Now the question is, can you hit big and clean? I thought that was actually quite astute and something that I've been thinking about the last like forty eight hours quite a bit and Naomi and when Chris said this, it was right around the time that I had been kind of thinking like. How in the heck is Naomi playing clean a second week as she is playing in the last in the five sets she played before going into the final she twenty five total unforced errors. That's an average of five unforced set, and that's including the Brady three. Center. Was it rogers quarterfinal, which was a bit one way traffic but you know that's impressive against power players where she's trying to bat back power she's not missing and so when she made those fifteen on four shares in the first set, I was like Oh man like this is exactly what you can't be doing, and then like you said, what is it eleven four shares for the rest of the match from from that to forty to spot yeah. I think you're totally right about this evolution and you know people talk about wasn't. I know I think you're totally right in inciting Chris ever in that. I'll give some credit here for for bringing it into the into the dialogue of NPR because yet you look at women's tennis are now and there's lots of women who can clock the ball who can hit the crap out of the ball right and who but who at the same time who have not really come yet close to Grand Slam breakthroughs I've minder. Blancas Year your strengths goes right who can who are big ball bashing kind of players in maybe you think, oh, it's like it's a power tennis game, but you have to go Clinton up matters that comes down to technique that comes out to focus that comes down to a lot of things and yet that's a that's a great evolution of the game in a in a purely forward direction if if we're now NACHOS swinging big and. Sometimes lands inner out which you know the Williams's when they were really amping power in the game twenty they when they're at their best, they play clean but they also days completely dissolved into unforced error strewn matches nothing. I only doesn't sometimes buzzy action. Her three slams its it hasn't just been about her litter in that sheet completely, and the margin works out has been about her really playing kind of within her power and and. I think that the biggest thing is that I think that when, for example, Serena and Venus ushered in the power ten, the modern power tennis game along with Lindsay and but but when they brought it in the fitness side of women's tennis was still lagging behind for the field for the field. So if you had power to if you had a power game, you just hit through your field like you could just the field was not physically. Quick or strong enough to extend rallies, you didn't have to hit five big high risk shots to win a rally which you kind of have to do. Now, you know twenty years ago you didn't you had to hit maybe to write one to open the court one to clean it up. So that's a big difference. So now you know we were talking about this I think Ben, but if you looked back kind of before the Naomi Osaka US Open Win I, think kind of but before that, you were looking at a lot of counterpunching players. Winning slams you had the ushering in of carbon rate. The challenging of trying to get slams of a Simona Halla get was winning destroying open. It would be really be Sloan it wasn't about power tennis actually. But now you look at these last slam champions. You do see something different. You see players who can play the big game. And keep it clean Bianca can do it. Naomi. Has Now proven this Naomi is so much better than the one that one in two, thousand, eighteen agree and so much better than the one the one in twenty one, thousand, nine, hundred, zero. What she did this has not just been a trend in this tournament. It's also was a trend during the Cincinnati event as well. She played it clean her her differential, her plus minus differential winners two unforced was pretty significant. I think in a lot of matches. So I think that Chrissy onto something think she's totally right I think that you know we always look at kind of the adjustment right the needle swings back the other way all the time I think this might be it, which is like you gotTa play, Clean Tennis and you have to be aggressive. It's something I mean it's just an ebb and flow to get real nerdy I remember seeing learning about this in like. Middle School grades were I think like elementary Kinda history class right that in like medieval times, there would be upgrades to weapons sure and then the armor would pick up and then it'd be like this is more an era battle in the Middle Times more defined by armor, and then you'd find some new artillery of some kind of appear set armor than the pick back up, and then you go back and forth there's ebbs and flows and technology, and in progress a things that's what we're seeing and Gosh. So many things whether it's politics never have these natural. Ebbs and flows back and forth across the spectrum and yeah, like we're seeing that in women's tennis for sure that now we're we're heading back towards a power time and you know this is not say every slam winner from here on out will be a power player that's Mona Hallak won't win the French Open because I kind of think we probably think she she may but But yeah, we're just seeing different kinds of players now and it's it's cool and that's the thing is that you're seeing different types of players and that's the other progress is is a Reaction to a trend. That's what progress is right. As you're saying kind of it, it rubber bands forwards. Basically, you know it's evolution in order to survive, you have to learn to adapt. So in addition to this kind of cleaner game style that I think that we will see going forward at least for the next few years I think that also if you look back the last maybe year so and looking ahead, you see players coming up with more variety. Again, what used to be only north-south baseline tennis is now you're seeing the all these young players who love. Running to the net since when I haven't seen that in the last ten years but apparently, this is a trend rate. The Katie McNally's the cocoa guard, the eagles fan tax they don't mind it they. They're like Caroliina Move Lake and rescue whether you're in that group and Rescue Vandross Uva? These are players who are not allergic to it. They WANNA be up there..

Sports Strike Against Racism
"This summer athletes have taken the lead by using their platforms to stand up against police brutality. The WNBA, has consistently protested throughout the year with numerous players even sitting the season out and on August twenty, six, twenty, twenty, four years after Colin Kaepernick began his anthem protests something historic happened athletes across the board streit and refuse to play today we're discussing reactions to this incredible moment in sports. This is the not. On August Twenty Third Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by police in Kenosha Wisconsin where we're calling this episode on. August twenty seven twenty twenty the day after the Milwaukee Bucks and players from the NBA WNBA NFL. Major League Baseball Major League soccer and tennis champion Naomi Osaka all refused to play or practice in an unprecedented strike in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake the NBA postponed the playoffs for two days. The first time that games have been postponed in this manner since Bill Russell led a strike in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, one after a day of deliberation players in the. NBA. Playoff Games pending further action. You're excited I. Know You're excited for sports to return obviously, this season has been one of a kind and unprecedented in. So many ways I want to know how do you feel now the players are using their platform in this way to be honest I feel this very strange sense of excitement. I need some really tragic kind of set of circumstances but I have been feeling conflicted after NBA Games kind. Came back I had been motivated by occurrences like kyrie irving standing in solidarity with Wnba players saying like Oh actually, I'll pay your salary. If you don't feel like you can play whether it's you know a reaction to corona virus or your desire to protest how support seeing. Lebron Kinda start almost every post game interview with a demand to arrest the cops that killed Brianna. Taylor. That made me really happy Siamese. Floor of the same energy that we have tours. Justice for Briana told, even seeing black lives matter on jerseys and in the court kind of made me feel a little better. I realized yesterday that this was the inspiration really been waiting for but now I'm wondering what comes next of course, how were you reacting to everything? You know I'm not like the world's biggest sports fan I do. I am a fan of black women and so seeing the WNBA protests. Throughout this year, but especially, the summer that felt released significant. Still I've always hesitant to look to athletes during these like highly political moments just because it's not the job that they set out to do. But you know as I started to see people sharing statements aerial Atkins from the Washington mystics we're going to say, well, we need to say and people need to hear that. They don't support us I'm fine with that. At the end of the day I'm GonNa make them good anywhere that I have to it basketball. It's not. Just what it is Chris Weber's telecast if not now when Not doing a pandemic. and. Countless lives being lost if not now when that is me in tears so lucid in that moment and so real and also just seeing how so many other sports leagues join them in protests were. Teased. Happen I mean it just shows. The hate people's heart. The thing is though is that as we were starting to develop this episode today so much has changed already in that the players in the NBA have agreed to return to playing the playoff season. Later, this week I don't think that all the progress is gone but I'm wondering what what happens. Now you know thought that same whiplash like I said, I felt like this was finally the type of inspiration leadership that I've been hoping to see from such a wide body players. Leaks, cross-border. It was truly abused beautiful, and I think now we need to do more I'm hoping that that since this is now on the table, players can put more pressure on owners to. Work with the people they are most connected to some of the richest and most powerful people in this nation are in the speed dial of most NBA owners even just the day if feels effective part of I, think resuming the season was the players putting pressure on the NBA to address the social unrest we've been dealing with all summer in some ways. So they started a foundation that's dedicated to investing in black causes. They're giving hundreds of millions of dollars they've given like you know the players, some approved protest phrases that they can use. They can put black lives matter on the courts and things like that and what I liked about this moment is at the NBA players were like that's what I usually do. And that's actually still not enough. So I'm hoping that we can see continued forward motion in that way something that I enjoy in this moment was seeing the NBA take the WNBA's league they have been holding it down all your curves pressing in. So many ways the thing is, is that WNBA, players, they don't make as much money as NBA players do they have really put their necks out there for social justice speaking up. Protecting black lives in many ways, it seems in some ways that they have more to lose by doing it. You know I am maybe two degrees below cautiously optimistic. That is a lot better than cynical, which is where I was before.

"naomi osaka" Discussed on No Challenges Remaining
"An end end, it puts the ball analogy in. Three hundred other courts seventy other players are now gonNa be thinking okay she did this. Why can't should I do now? You Hope. So anyway, well, they might dismiss it I'm sure some of them will, but it it's it's a marker it's a it's a it's a flag that she put down and and so I was also thinking. About her saying that people are looking at her like really looking at. And you know you know what tennis when players to kind of break out and become big stars and you know when they when they realized that people are looking at them they to. Try to blend him on. You know become deeply in this era in the federal error become you know more agreeable more. So to see, she's taken over the in still her instinct is to. Make make the standard her. You know not just be more choir is kind of even more impressive. That's a that's a it's a very good point. I mean I so many times we associate making money in sports with silence, right? Thing whether it's apocryphal or not. The quote that's attributed to Michael Jordan about Republicans buy sneakers to as his reason for not speaking out about various things during his career. and. Even if that wasn't something, he actually said and I think there is debate over whether he actually said that phrase the ethos of at least matched a lot of ethics at the time that they were not putting their views out there to alienate people end tennis has certainly been part of that for sure and this is it's amazing to me that this is the sport. This is something happening again also one really one person and ron gets a lot of credit for me to for just being fully on board everything that Asaka said, it was a very vocal defender again, having just on instinct he hadn't heard about the news previous to me, bring it up with him or anything. But This is the sports still where there's still an arena named after Mercury court you know this is this is not associate progressive sport anyway, I mean be I think that the ATP is different issues race in sexuality separate the ADP for the first time. This summer had an interview with Brian to Haley website, which is the first acknowledged that gay people exist in an official capacity and it's twenty twenty like so this is not a progressive sport on any measure on a corporate level and so many agents are so risk averse, and that's really where it comes from anything more players. It's the agents, binders, managers, whoever who were telling them to to show up and play. Right, and even heads of interestingly in her in her press. She says only that sort of surprise me I. Thought was interesting about how she thought that she didn't have a right to say too much what was going on in America Pages Not American. I think now Masach is being very American because not at all saying that she's less Japanese, but you can be a lot of belting things in my book and she is. She's. been living in the US and she was two or three years old and she's joining protests and she's citizen for a long time before announcing that recently just because there's rules against Japanese dual citizenship for adults so. It's an interesting time for her to reclaim herself into state as a black woman in that statement very declared. And Yeah I I just thought it was a super powerful moment for her to. Again really show a different type of of initiative leadership that we haven't seen from star players in the long time for ten kind of saying her saying I'm a black woman. You know one thing that I've loved about her like over the past. The past few months is that is how like freely she is able to be every aspect of herself. She can say I'm a black woman in in this kind of context she can speak about as a Japanese woman she can speak about as Asian woman and they're all kind of you know then no in I mean we've talked about this before and about how people constantly ask her about different sides of her and this and that and and what aspect of her is is black is Haitian versus Japanese. She kind of she's all of these things and and she says it very easily and and you know that that's why I really liked because you know. Different. People have different identity see themselves in her and and she's able to kind of. Say I'm the fact that she's able to say I'm black think that's I'm a black woman of Butler important. Absolutely and she continues to find her voice and figure out. where she thinks she can fit and she somebody who again part of the reason that. I think according to not underestimating the strength anomalous is she's such an unassuming person. So many ways right? She's not someone who you think of. As being a bulldozing force of personality or anything, but she there's a quiet strength about her. and an and and sometimes hesitant strength to I. Think it's fair to say I think some she's not aware of her own strength and I think that's sometimes why she pulls back a little bit differential on different topics when she doesn't always need to show the difference that she does Again, there's different cultural things I'm sure that are ingrained in terms of that. But. Yeah. It's a big moment for her and I get very proud of her honestly for this moment I think what she's done..

"naomi osaka" Discussed on The Functional Tennis Podcast
"Would be just a little wooden spoon became. A racket will be there that had third. On me so, if let's say, you're a player who hits kind of a flat ball has good. Feel likes to serve and volley. That would actually be a good record for them gray ragged. Yes, gray racket! If you fully trust your strokes really in Bogo for them, don't you know? Some people who are. Passing their shots. If you ready to go for throats, one player grass come in serve and volley very good for serving very good rag per serving the accuracy and all that stuff, not that great like the kick, a little bit tougher because of the string pattern plus the small head size, but for the flat serve the slicer ooh that it just moves. So good good ratchet for died. Like definitely if you have that kind of style for. A Nice, and now it's GonNa. Lead into the last part is podcasts where we ask what you're up to win. You're not on the court. And I initially came across you from defenders. He had up of Naomi. Put up the art practice. What you'd send him onto me which really appreciate so? You started open new of Sceni- cat. My tennis hate Q. You have a youtube channel. Tell us a bit more tells the name Youtube Channel, actually in my tennis HQ, as well as Mike things as you as well. Yeah, so we have. The website is kind of our you know. That's where we started those about six seven months ago. Might tends you dot com and it was just kind of creating content content around ten is dead. You know maybe answering questions that people aren't really getting the right answers to and some things. I think. My friend myself. My friend I played up Aberdeen actually and a other team made up later UCLA says the three of us know writing some articles where. We just we just felt like we had some sort of like an insight that a lot of people maybe know your your normal like club coach and all that stuff Don't don't have the access to certain things that we do these days. and a lot of a lot of answering questions I mean really like we have articles about anything like what? What are tennis players drinking on the core? Just recovery strategies all sorts of things. There's more strapped instruction of stuff. There's more prize money related stuff. We actually have a very good breakdown on prize money of an an an article recently on our website, which was really good. It shows how people who are is a kind of a funny thing, but funny, not funny. It number like a player who's four, hundred, zero, four fifty makes as much as like someone on Disability Social Security here in America. Is, the person who was so we had a whole breakdown of bad, so we did that and We started instagram account. just the kind of pose some construction of stuff that we wanted to do, but we've got. We ended up. A lot of the things that we see on instagram that we enjoy that. We think this is good tip were. This is a good video with share on our instagram. Youtube and a website is kind of like our main focus where again we? Like, I said. The reinventing the wheel part I think I see a lot stuff on. Sometimes I'm like. Wait that that this is way too much like no one is doing this like. Don't try to. Just because he looks good on video doesn't mean it will help you one hundred percent on the court right I think simplicity in ten is. It's already a complicated game. Simplicity is a so key. Key and I just. We just kind of wanted to. You know we have a platform. We each have our own experiences like I'm traveling when they owe me, I'm seeing ten is at the highest level. I attended so like when I travel with her. You know sometimes they will have to do this. That and I'm like okay. I'll see you later. 'cause I'm GonNa Watch impedance. Kid in a candy store. Exactly I love it. I love watching I love like senior inorganic. Each person plays differently, but they just make it work right. You're the new Medvedev compared to to t m. whatever like everyone is so different, Taibbi love it. And I thought I kind of what I compared to what we're doing with our website. We're trying to aim to do is. Present. Mid Level Golfer I've been up in the nineties and I can google something about fixing whatever like a how fix a slice whatever it is, there's GonNa be a billion things online but so many things are so gimmicky and. Like what is what is actually then then I'll ask someone who actually plays pro golf and they'll. They'll give me such a simple tip or sub such a simple thing now, Mike. Why? Why are they trying to create all this stuff online? That makes me more complicated than than than it is, and I think with our insight again like I. I try to soak it in everything that I'm learning from women or from from you know the the fitness goes anyone who? Around at any other coaches and players and anyone that have been around I I kind of sponge a a lot of this stuff of from them, because it was just a big learning thing and we just wanted to Kinda share that we wanted to. We have our experience and we're not saying like we know everything we actually you know. We don't know everything we we just we just like. Keep learning on the go. I think we're in a great position of being around people who are at the top of this profession, and we just kind of wanted to share it with with people and keep it simple. Keep it fun. I think that's also another part of it. We all have jobs, so we are not like we can just be on the cord shooting videos all the time and writing articles, but. But It's been really it's been a really fun thing and I think we just kind of starting to hit our Stri and we're going to do a lot more. Iraqi reviews, too, so I think that's that's a that's kind of like a an area where I think people like to hear from actual black players. Like what are you? What are you guys think of that I think there's there's sometimes people review racket staff like you can trust.

Jamie Loeb on not letting results define her
"Hey everyone listening the tennis dot Com podcast with American pro. Love Jamie Lobe. She's telling us about the ups and downs of her career on the pro tour. Keep listening you mentioned a team now. We know that here in midland joined by Ed Germain Jenkins. He has worked the past with Naomi Osaka so kind of a semi famous name. What's that experience been like? Yeah you know. I was super excited when I heard that he is going to be kind of charged me during preseason and this year. USDA and You know really grateful to have him and his experience. I really like working working with him. And I you know we agree on Pretty much everything and just seeing his You know point of view on certain things and even asking him questions about you know oh players at the top level what are they doing differently But yeah like you know between owning than he was hitting partner so he's had quite the resume and it's pretty the Cool to be around him. Is there anything. That's kind of stuck out that. He said that he has probably they're used or you know the top players did that. You were like that resonated did with you because you know sometimes coaches can say something and sometimes it doesn't stick but it just depends on how someone says it. I think more so when we're talking about things thinks he's looking at big picture and for me He's you know he's like top hundred fifty like when we're working on things after matches like look if you want to get to this level like doc. This isn't gonNA fly or like you need to get better at this so I think it's good putting things in perspective because it's so easy to focus on the now instead of you know and maybe like three six like one year Threes there six months down the road or a year down the road and I think he always like just brings back so for me until I kind of get Outta my head and stop thinking about now but thinking about okay. What's GonNa be what's going to make me better for the next six months to a year from now it's challenging though because as you've been ranked as high as as the one thirties right? You've been up there she you know but then rankings change and every year is different. He's a bad your last year. How have you managed to cope with expectations? Sion's probably your own because you only fears in. You're still very young but you can kind of get sick of it right. Yeah I feel like a veteran at this point. Irene in is rolling her eyes at me. 'cause I've been playing also since junior is but fulltime. I think it's about five years now. Something like that How injury last year and then confidence one away and it just took a while and then from that wasn't enjoying being on core and then I was just trying to force things and then all of a sudden when I least expected I go and win a tournament when I really didn't think I was going to or really didn't want to be there and then things just change? It just takes one match one tournament for everything to change but at the same time you know these common things not enjoying playing and being out there that kind of creeps in when you're not doing well and you kind of have to take the time to realize like look. Do I need a break or can I push through. And that's kind of the battle. I had last last years well last year you were also I mean. We also have to mention the fact that you made finals here. Two years ago two years ago. Yes so last year. You were defending finals points and unfortunately lost to Mattie second round had a tough drugs we played each other the year before so I mean just that many points and you know losing early in that match in that tournament when you're defending finals. I mean that can also change your year lot and that was was that probably the the biggest amount of points accrue that you were defending ever I believe so. Yeah those definitely I think the most I've had to defend so. Yeah that was. It's tough and then two weeks later. I sprained my ankle. So yeah and that was. That was a struggle learned a lot throughout that time. Time but Ended up playing a couple tournaments when I definitely should not have and then ended up having to take two months off so everything was kind of pushed back. In that time frame I did have more points coming off and then by the time I came back I just I was not confident at all. So there's a slight turning point then in October when you one in Dallas Tonight your your eighth idea which is what were you thinking before. I mean if we didn't want to be there you don't WanNa play and then you end up winning. It doesn't really. I don't quite understand. Yeah it's crazy how things happen I go up a set and four one and One of the US coaches Jordan. Belga was there with me After I got four one turn to him and I'm like I don't WanNa be here anymore and I think his face was like And then of course so I lost next two games but then I ended up. I think winning four and three and from that match or Mike Okay and then I honestly started playing better With each match I think just mentally. I wasn't in a good place going into it and part of me was thinking I might call it a year after that tournament. I actually spoke to Irena a little bit Prior prior to that. I'm like what shed Douche stop now but maybe I can do well. Maybe I can get points. It's just that constant vicious cycle of points money any but then you kinda lose yourself and kind of like self love and self care. Yeah funny should mention that I remember last year I made up behind the racket. Post host and I remember getting a message from you. And it was one of those moments where vicious like girl I've been there we I've been through it. You know let's have a phone phone call and not taking credit for your win but you know we did speak before that credit for that. I don't know it was all you but You Know I. I don't feel like I asked this question enough but I I'm curious. What is it that drives you to keep going? I think for me. I'm stubborn than sons. Were like I I just. I don't know I want to or maybe not stubborn aware but like I just want to start like if I start something like I i WanNa finish it and I WANNA say like look I gave it my all and I don't think I was like ready to stop. Maybe I should have taken a actual break or a as long enough break. I don't really think I took any break but I think I'm just so motivated to do well and prove to myself that like look I can and do this and I think I just love the competition and I'm just really determined with everything I do but I just know myself and I know I wouldn't be satisfied if if I were to stop because at the end of the day like I do love competing and giving myself a chance and I don't WanNa look back and say I didn't do that or fulfill that no stone left unturned right. Yeah right no regrets no regrets. Do you ever feel like maybe the motivation might be. Or how do you stay motivated to be like okay. Maybe the next tournaments my right one the next thing is going to turn around or do you ever just think like. Why am I doing this combination of all of that? Sometimes I'm like. I don't know what's going to happen this week week. Someone like all right. I got this but then I lose first round and some weeks like Dallas. I'm like I don't want to be here and win the tournament. So honestly it's a coin flip live like your mind is You know it's crazy what your mind can do but sometimes you know thinking that way it kind of takes pressure off of you and you just go in with no expectations. I think I've learned to try not to define myself as a person With my results. It's really hard to and you know I'm a perfectionist. I WanNa do well and everything and I wanNA win and succeed. But I've done a better job of just separating myself and then the tennis player and I think that's a big thing by yeah week after week. I feel like the mentality just changes depending where you are to you like. There's some places you know may not want to go to so then you're like Like am I really motivate and other places I guess Midland. I'm highly motivated here because I really enjoy by the people in the crowd so mike always up for. But even when you're down you still have to find a way to kind of persevered through that and do you feel ever pressure. Sure from like maybe your support system family or your sister or USDA to keep going even though maybe sometimes you want to break. I sure I think I tend to care too much with other people. Say and think. And that's kind of a downfall going to please everybody and then I end up not pleasing myself and doing something for myself ourself. So I've battled with myself with that I don't think it's necessarily on anyone. It's just how I feel and you know maybe sometimes my family you know they're always watching me or following and sometimes it's a lot and you know it is pressure but I've grown up doing that and living through that hat so I kind of expected by now but I just need to do a better job of just being like it doesn't matter what anyone else things just matters how I feel if I'm happy if I feel like I'm doing the right thing. Then that's all that matters happy. I love hearing that. I don't hear that enough from tennis players. I mean it's it's so result base driven. You know you get so so many e- even last night you know after you win your match or whatever the first question is you know how you feel second question did you play. How'd you play? And then the third question is typically. Well you play this person next like you know it's never like you go ahead and enjoy this win. Take this moment and I remember last night. You know you asked me you were like hey. Do you want to know who you play next like. Nah I just WanNa and I just want to enjoy this one a little bit maybe just process acid and yeah I can totally relate to what you're saying about you know your whole life. You're just you're just a tennis player. Yeah everyone when you go to family functions. How's through tennis? Yes this yeah lately. That's just annoyed me more because I I have even snapped. Sorry mom but like I've snap at her. Mike Mom Likes. Stop asking me. How practices like just ask me how I am? She's like I I'm like yeah but then you always follow it up with you know house practice houses like does it really matter her and sometimes I'm like all if I wanNA talk to you about it. I'll talk to you about it but you know. I think all of us like we're more than tennis player and it's tough because family family. Family Friends You know people watching us on TV. They think of us as tennis player. That's why you know behind the racket We both have done it. Noah's it's a really good friend of mine. I think it's a great platform to just showcase like you know the struggles that we do go through and just show lobe of our personality As well since a lot of people don't get to see that
Coco Gauff stuns Naomi Osaka at the Australian Open, taking a straight sets win in the third round
"Cocoa Gov. We talked about her the other day and how she comes back in matches says he dropped a set but then as the comeback. He's done incredible number of times the two years. She didn't need that today the fifteen year old over Osaka six three a six four defending champ. Kp what does it mean and are you willing to say the future is upon us of course futures are put us. You've got to love the cocoa right. Look what she did. She extinguished will stock of their. Who beat her? The last time out in a in a in a slam She got by Venus Williams earlier. She's advancing quicker and faster than anyone thought. We've had three sixteen year old winters winters. I believe in the women's side and Slams Austin and sellers and so that's what her opportunity is here. Right now with Serena out of the mix of course course is still there who beat her last time out so she's got to get over that and then some other really good players out there but this is a chance for history right what he page which you can see improvement. I mean she's the only player very joe neither side men or women to get to the third round and win in in three majors or I three majors so you could see the improvement. Let's look at her serve. I think that's the most important thing that I saw was that she was the last time she did lose. Who's she was around? Forty five percent of first serves seventy five percent in this batch. I mean think about the difference there that we're talking and her experience now that she's able to actually do more things because she has been here before he does not. She still has nerves. But we saw with a double-fault twice in a row except that she's going to improve on that as she goes along becomes. It's absolutely remarkable just historic the numbers. I mean she's the youngest player to beat a top five opponent on the tour and nearly thirty years that was Jennifer Capriati Serena who came forward but actually the number that jumps out to me. The most Tony was seventeen eighteen. That's the number of unforced errors. She had which was about half of what saga had. And I think signifies the level of poise. She's playing with which must be infuriating. ASAKA UH admitted. It was infuriating losing to someone that much younger than her. I know some of the fellow panelist today show. How about that Thursday? I'm just glad we're not talking about how Osaka might never win again. because she got beaten by someone that sheet so easily chip you and we're talking to mean to menas point Most of the players that are in the Australian junior open right now are older than cocoa golf off. That's how young she is. She's doing this at an age that we just haven't seen before and everybody's points are valid the poise. That's there the ability to play without too many errors in the future is

Naomi Osaka had the unfortunate position last year of being the person in the US US Open tennis finals for women to play Serena Williams who was about to win the if she won that match she would win the title of most wind. US Open sows eighteen welcomed by by US woman by any woman tennis player she would take the title and Naomi Osaka.

This moment was something that I absolutely showed my kids right away and I know so many people were moved by Chrissy. Everett who has been who played hey the game for years and has been a commentator for years talked about this in such a moving away saying this was unlike anything she's ever seen in the sport women's tennis tennis or in sport before netted really like a game changer in how whenever you any kind of like game or anything with Kevin I usually lose yeah and what he does is. He taunts sure that makes fun of feel bad. He what you need. Is Naomi Osaka to show people like Kevin that you take care of explain what we did last year with Naomi Osaka with Michael Jordan. Yes so she's a little she was quiet. Last time share a little nervous system even meeting. Ellen like you might be and admitted that she liked Michael Jordan right so ellen texted him instantly because their friends because their friends and embarrassed her so much that she she was like when your mom tells like the boy you have a crush on that's right on national on national television and Allen of course sex Michael Jordan from the stage but then Naomi gets a text he did he tweet her he tweeted or he somehow invited her out and she even respond now. She goes to them yeah so we couldn't let her off the hook that easy so we have our back a year later and now of course porsches boyfriend which we paid no attention to that part of the story is not important and then ellen had a giant banner of her in Michael be printed for that stage.
