Osaka gave the impression that a return to competition was near … as it showed a zoomed-in photo of a tennis ball bearing the Australian Open logo (which would mean it would be back in January).
Even if that means Serena will have to beat Naomi for a title (Osaka beat Serena 3 out of 5 times they’ve played) … it’s not hard to see that she’s happy the competition is back – and in good shape. health.
We also asked Serena about the upcoming movie, “King Richard,” a biopic about the Williams sisters’ father, Richard williams – and she promised it would be a good movie.
“It’s an inspirational story,” she said. “It’s totally inspiring. I love it.”
One of Hollywood’s most dynamic actors – Will smith – plays the father of Williams’ sister in the film – due out later this month.
