“It was super fun, the energy was crazy” Naomi Osaka on defeating Coco Gauff

Coco Gauff will not match her magical Wimbledon run and Naomi Osaka’s quest to defend her US Open title continues.

In a blockbuster third-round match-up and in their first career meeting, the world No. 1 and 21-year-old from Japan bested the 15-year old American 6-3, 6-0 on Saturday to advance to the round of 16.

After the match, in a move not seen often in tennis, Osaka embraced Gauff and asked the teen if she would share her interview with her on court at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
