Naomi Osaka has shot to super stardom by winning the 2018 US Open. But 10 years ago, she was just a kid playing competitive games against her family and friends. 

In a throwback home video, a 10-year-old Osaka took on a chopstick competition with beans, and thoroughly beat her opposition. 

Who knew that a decade later she would beat all of the opposition in New York to life her first Grand Slam title? Understandably, the 20-year-old was embarrassed by the release of the footage.

Osaka has become a household name thanks to her stellar 2018 season, and has shot up to No. 7 in the world.
