TOKYO -- When Naomi Osaka won her second Grand Slam at the Australian Open in January 2019, the first Asian-born player to win one, China's Li Na presented her with the trophy.
"Yeah, I mean, for me, I didn't expect to see her there. At first I was very shocked. I wanted to cry a little bit, but I didn't want to cry on this, like, podium. So, yeah, I was really touched. I just felt really honored ... that she was giving me this trophy," Osaka, the second Asian-born player to win a Grand Slam, said.
