After losing to Russian Veronika Kudermetova in the Indian Wells second round, Naomi Osaka couldn’t hold back her tears when she addressed the crowd after the match, where she was insulted by a fan in the grandstands.
“I just wanted to say ‘Thank you’.”
“I’ve been heckled before but heckled here, I watched a video of Venus and Serena getting heckled here. If you haven’t watched it, you should watch it.
