Naomi Osaka and This Young Guy Will Make A Better Couple

Published

on

It was during a particularly intense moment in the second set of last year’s U.S.

Open finals when Naomi Osaka, the 23-year-old tennis phenom, unexpectedly crushed a forehand at 86 mph past Victoria Azarenka and into the far corner for a point.

The shot was mesmerizing—the kind of momentum shifter that eventually helped Osaka cruise to victory—but it was her non-reaction afterward that was most revealing.

While someone like a Rafael Nadal might have celebrated by leaping into the air and screaming until their neck veins exploded, Osaka was…relaxed. Unbothered.

She just sort of casually glanced down at her racket as if to check on its well-being, like, Hey, little guy, that wasn’t too hard on you, was it?

No matter what kind of pressure she’s under or the caliber of opponent she’s facing, Osaka’s default state is one of unflappable chill.

It’s almost eerie. Like she has the resting heart rate of a Galápagos tortoise.

She was even unflappable as she fielded tone-deaf questions from Open reporters about the face masks she had been wearing all tournament long, which were printed with names including Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Elijah McClain (“What was the message you wanted to send, Naomi?”—as if the answer wasn’t obvious).

Meanwhile, when Osaka’s boyfriend of two years—the Grammy-nominated rapper Cordae—attends her matches, he is decidedly unchill.

He’s a complete 180, hollering in the stands every time she wins a point. And thank God for that.

Because Cordae on the sidelines showcased a level of unbridled joy that was one of the few glimmers of goodness many of us had all year.

And what better pair to fawn over? Despite being such a new face and name, Osaka is already the highest-paid female athlete in the world—with sponsorship deals from Nike, Beats by Dre, and Louis Vuitton.

(“I did buy my mom her first Louis Vuitton a couple of years back, which was a nice memory for me,” Osaka said in an email.

“Now being the new face of the brand is just so surreal.”) She’s an instant cultural juggernaut.

Cordae, on the other hand, is a radical thinker and an exciting new voice in music with cosigns from legends including Eminem and Dave Chappelle. The L.A. Times called him “hip-hop’s next great MC.”
