US Open memory bittersweet for Osaka

It’s been a whirlwind since Naomi Osaka won the US Open in dramatic fashion.

Now, she says the memory feels like … green tea ice cream.

“When you bite into it, it’s, like, sweet but also very strong,” Osaka said. “Like 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 just sort of wanted to move on at that point.”

The deep run in Tokyo took her mind off it. And Osaka hopes another run in Beijing will do likewise.
