Naomi "Sayonara For Now" Osaka Road to 2024 Gold Thread: To Be Continued in Paris..
Naomi's journey to a Gold Medal starts versus China's Zheng Saisai on Sunday, July 25th.

As this is my thread, I ask that there be no discussion of Naomi's record on Clay as this tournament is played on Hard Court.

I do not understand all the love for Osaka. She is a multimillionaire liberal who suffers from anxiety issues. She is a great tennis player and seems like a nice person but all the love she gets from the press seems a bit extreme.

Says the girl who is much more American than Japanese. Isn't her father even American? Plus, she has been in the states since she was nearly a toddler.

Your sports opinions should not be based on politics. Leave politics out of sports.

You are right perhaps I should not have intermingled politics at all. But I would feel the same way if she was an outspoken conservative.

I guess so because her tennis resume is a bit light IMO.

Yep. That’s why they called her the Tiger Woods of Lady Tennis. Also because she apparently loves Swedish waiter dick

Naomi Osaka, Japan’s Cherry Blossom, gave the world a gift as she returned to the hard court today to defeat the #52 Saisai Zheng (China) in straight sets.

We all know that Naomi is quite the Japanese History and Language scholar but she took the high road and quickly dismissed, in a fantastic post match interview, any comparisons of today’s match to the defeat the Chinese took versus Japan in 1937 at Nanjing.

Naomi will continue her “March to Gold” with a very challenging draw that brings her #50 Viktorija Golubic (Switzerland) in the Round of 32.

Many of us wish this would happen. That ship sailed long ago and it wasn't conservatives hoisting those sails. We turn to sports for the competition, the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Instead we have had a liberal agenda of racial grievances, fawning over every black accomplishment, advocacy of transgendered males competing against females, cheering of those athletes who choose to disrespect the American flag and this great country, faux outrage over mascots while finding every fault possible with conservatives who just want to play or watch the games without these absurd distractions. So don't ever insult us with your sanctimonious bull shite to leave politics our of sports. You created it and you own it and it is slowly destroying athletics along with other aspects that have made this country great.

She looked like a huge bitch who didn't even want to be there when she lit the cauldron. Japan should be ashamed of themselves for picking an American who doesn't even speak Japanese for that honor. It should have been those baseball guys.

Stop me if you have heard this before:

Naomi Osaka wins in straight sets (to advance to the Round of 16).

Naomi clearly has one of the toughest draws in Tokyo aka the Women's Tennis "Group of Death".

She will be in quite the battle in the 3rd Round versus the winner of #41 Marketa Vondrousova (Czech) vs #168 Mihaela Buzarnescu (Romania).

You clowns don't say this about DACA children who were dragged here by parents. Osaka is a legal Japanese citizen & has renounced ( I think) her US citizenship.


I don't see the same resentment for an American guy born in Louisiana competing for Sweden in the Pole Vault.
