'Amazing' Osaka thrashes tearful Gauff at US Open as Nadal coasts

"When I hear people talking about someone, I want the opportunity to play them just to assess it for myself". Some suggested that they had even booed, as if Osaka's name were still tarnished - in the eyes of NY - by association with last year's chaotic final. "So, sorry for playing you with this type of mentality".

"That would be the biggest - like, I would cry".

Nadal was forced to retire from his match against Juan Martin del Potro in last year's U.S. Open semifinals because of knee pain that has been an issue for the 33-year-old Spaniard on hard courts. Definitely I think that would be so historic in a way. How her parents had pushed her to finally give up her struggles as a journeyman touring pro and put her college degree to use in a real job in the corporate world - and how she refused to do any of it. "But I need to practice my doubles".

Soon enough, Osaka was edging ahead - and then pulling away, showing the same poise and power that carried her to the championship a year ago. I was crying. Everybody was crying.

Gauff's dad said afterward that his daughter might not appear on tour again until next year, because of age restrictions on the women's tour that limit how many tournaments someone who is 15 may enter. "The energy was insane - even if it wasn't for me". The past year has been, like, insane.

"I made third round before but it was in another country". You're able to follow these players through so many years, and you never know when things are going to happen. They're kind of still playing right now. Osaka, who looked incredibly strong during their match, quickly jumping out to a 3-0 lead in the first set, thanked the crowd for their "amazing energy" while acknowledging that she knew their loud cheers were for Coco, whom she described as "incredible".

"It's just amusing to me".

Ellen DeGeneres, Samuel L Jackson and Kobe Bryant were just some of the celebrities who took to Twitter to celebrate her long-awaited comeback.

"I give all the credit to the players, because it's a healthy competition", said U.S. Fed Cup captain and head of women's tennis Kathy Rinaldi. That was the thing that was on my mind. "I was like, I don't really want to play a third set".

Bryant, a two-time Olympic champion, is a friend and adviser for Osaka.

"I mean, it was fantastic, she was incredible, and I'm going to learn a lot from this match". "I had to dig really deep". He's someone I look up to as an athlete and also as a person.

"It's going to sound corny as heck, but I just believe in being nice to people".

"She's been so sweet to me, so thank you for this".

"I just tried to do what I did in the last round and tried to get better, " Townsend said.

"I wouldn't change anything because I appreciate so much where I am, because I know where I came from". At Roland Garros, Amanda Anisimova, 17, became the first player born in the 2000s to reach a Grand Slam semifinal. Moments later, Townsend's voice cracked and tears began to flow as she told fans in Arthur Ashe Stadium, "It's been a long journey".
