“Definitely, for me I feel like I should be an all-court player. Honestly, it’s been a bit of a ride trying to figure out how to play better on clay throughout these years. But I think this year I have been playing well,” Osaka told reporters ahead of the May 26 to June 9 tournament at Roland Garros.

“So, I’m really excited to see what happens here.”

She also said, “I was able to go there for a little bit in between Germany and Spain. It was really nice,” she said.

“Everyone is very nice and helpful. And then I met Rafa. So, that was really cool.”

Osaka will start her campaign against Slovakian Anna Schmiedlova.
