Twitter users believe that the Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka won runner-up Jennifer Brady in the acceptance speech.
Although she prefers “Jennie”, many people still emphasized that Osaka calls Brady “Jennifer” on social media platforms.
The 23-year-old defeated Brady 6-4 6-3 to win her second Australian Open title and fourth Grand Slam.
At the beginning of her acceptance speech, the Japanese native turned to Brady (Brady) and asked: “Do you prefer to be called Jenny or Jennifer?
The runner-up said clearly: “Jenny.”
Osaka continued: “First of all, I want to congratulate Jennifer.”
When she continues to praise the 25-year-old, this comment is probably just a mistake in Osaka.
But this is not the way to receive it on social media.
One Twitter user described Osaka as “rude,” while another Twitter user thought she was polite.
However, many people find the champion’s remarks interesting and harmless examples of trolling.
Osaka, who defeated Serena Williams 6-3 6-4 in the semifinals, continued to describe his joy in winning another Grand Slam event.
She said: “It’s unbelievable. I didn’t play the final Grand Slam with fans, so having this kind of energy means a lot.
“Thank you for opening up our hearts. Participating in a Grand Slam is a super privilege, and I don’t take it for granted.”
Brady participated in her first Grand Slam final and won her first WTA championship in August last year. She was full of praise for the winner.
She said: “I want to congratulate Naomi on winning the Grand Slam again.” She was our inspiration. What she did for the game was really amazing and brought the sport to reality.
“I hope young girls look at this and get inspired by what she has done.”
Osaka will now focus on its debut in May.
She will also strive to win Wimbledon for the first time in June.
