Tennis Part 2 Naomi Osaka

In the 2018 US Open Tennis Tournament, Naomi Osaka of Japan defeated (beat) Serena Williams of the USA. The tournament was held at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, NYC. I did not know who Naomi Osaka was. She was the first Japanese to play in a tennis finals. So, there was much excitement here in Japan and in our house. But she is not really Japanese, I think. Her mother is Japanese. So, her nationality is Japanese. Her father is from Haiti. She was born in Osaka, Japan and her family moved to the US when she was 3 years old. She has duel Japanese and American citizenship. In my opinion, she is cute. And she played liked a champion in the finals against Serena. She showed a lot of poise, character and maturity. I saw some times when she looked like (as if) she would get angry. But, she controlled her temper, relaxed and continued to dominate (completely control) Serena and the match. Eventually (finally/in the end) she won the match quite easily. Then, on the podium, where they receive the trophies, she was so cool. She cried a lot, and she also apologized (said "I'm sorry) for winning. After all, Serena is her idol. Naomi is Japanese.
