Naomi Osaka in action

Naomi Osaka once again came back from a sluggish start to win through at the French Open, before revealing the secrets behind her incredible powers of recovery.

Osaka beat Victoria Azarenka in three sets on Thursday, the second time at Roland Garros this year she has dropped the opening set yet prevailed in the end.

However, she says it is no coincidence.

“The first set, I got rolled,” Osaka admitted.

“I made a little bit of a comeback in the end of the first set, but technically, she kind of killed me in the first set, and I just kept trying to find a way to stay positive and jump around.

“After a certain point, I don’t even look at the score. I just try to take it point by point.

“I have this mindset that I feel like I can win if it gets down to the wire, if I have to break a person, I feel like I have the ability to do that.”

“I feel like there is a time for everything, and for me, whenever I play a match, even if I’m playing bad or good, I always recognize that there is a chance, and I can always tell when the chances are.”
