Naomi Osaka had classy gesture for Coco Gauff after match

"She did awesome, and I'm going to learn a lot from this match", a still-tearful Gauff said, before turning to look at Osaka.

"She seems very intelligent, so I think there's automatically things that she's going to change the next time that we play".

Others hailed Osaka as a "class act" for the way she had comforted Gauff after her defeat, while National Basketball Association legend Kobe Bryant said that the future of tennis was "in great hands." . "That's what she did", Gauff said.

Gauff broke Osaka's serve to take the seventh game. "Then it reminded me how young she was", Osaka said. The two tennis starts have known each other for years, and practiced together before the Miami Open in 2017. "I want her to, like, be aware that she's accomplished so much and she's still so young".

Both players ended up reduced to tears, but those shed will be remembered as part of one of the indelible moments of US Open history. "I hope they have a good team around them that knows how to guide them in the tough times". "Coco, you're wonderful", Osaka added.

The pair exchanged multiple hugs afterward, and 15-year-old Gauff was noticeably emotional. "I'm just out here trying my best", Osaka said. "I definitely am interested to watch". "I didn't think it would be that many people at the match, to be honest".

Rather than wilting at the venue where she had been left in tears 12 months ago, Osaka rose to the occasion in stunning style, delivering a show of class on and off the court that should secure her place as a favourite in the hearts and minds of fans, as well as a frontrunner for the title. "She convinced me, like, multiple times to stay". I kept saying no. She's been so sweet to me, so thank you for this. Osaka encouraged her in response.

World number one Osaka told reporters in a news conference that the decision was an instinctive one.

"For me, at least when I lose, I just come into the locker room and I cry, then I do press, like, here". Previous year he told me at this tournament 'Why are you still playing juniors, you need to move on.

Pliskova, the 2016 U.S. Open runner-up, went home with a 6-7 (1), 6-3, 7-5 loss over almost 2 1/2 hours against 16th-seeded Johanna Konta of Britain. "Just the way she handles pressure being out on the court, we forget it's not routine to be in front of 20,000 [fans] and facing the pressure".

Gauff added: "I'm glad the crowd was kind of helping me and her". Translation: They thought she was overweight.

Up next for Osaka will be Swiss 13th seed Belinda Bencic, who beat Estonian Anett Kontaveit earlier yesterday. It took all of 10 minutes for Osaka to lead 3-0.

Townsend's previous best result at a major tournament was when she reached the third round at the 2014 French Open at age 18. The Japanese-Haitian, who has dual Japanese and American citizenship, won her second grand slam crown at the Australian Open in January.

Serena Williams was in pain - "acceptable" pain, her coach called it - after rolling her right ankle during the second set of a U.S. Open victory. And though Gauff was a little off on the nickname, she nailed the instrument. They play No. 9 ranked duo Nicole Melichar and Kveta Peschke on Sunday.
