Nissan names Grand Slam champion Osaka as brand ambassador


The third and final violation came when Williams called Ramos a "liar" and "thief" - a verbal abuse violation, which cost her a game penalty in the second set of the match. She stole Naomi Osaka's glory as she so frequently does from opponents who start beating her.

"He said he made a motion, I don't understand what he was talking about".

"This doesn't happen if she's not losing". But Osaka, who has shone a light on mixed-race athletes in Japan with her fairytale NY triumph, warned that she is now a completely different player. "I've played here for many years and got to the final once, so this tournament is very special to me". And Nissan will support her activities as a tennis player, including providing Nissan vehicles at her tour destinations. "I'm grateful that people care or sympathise but I don't really think there was anything to be sad about", said Osaka, who has risen from 19th to seventh in the new world rankings.
