On Tuesday, Osaka reviewed the most iconic tennis scenes from the big (and Netflix) screen and was surprised to see the different techniques, styles and grunts.
At only 22-years-old Naomi Osaka is already a two-time major champion but she has yet to see it all.
In the Bridesmaids tennis scene, Kristin Wiig tries to take down Rose Byrne at all costs in a ritzy country club court. Osaka might be a two-time Grand Slam champion, but she isn't fully clued into every nuance of recreational tennis.
"Growing up I've played at a lot of country clubs," Osaka said. "Now, I'm wondering if this is what's been going on when I see them playing so competitively."
The 22-year-old added that she has never played against someone she's been that upset with except for her older sister Mari. Notably, her anger never helped her win.
Next up was the 2017 Battle of the Sexes film that starred Emma Stone as the legendary Billie Jean King and Steve Carell as Bobby Riggs.
"Every tennis player knows this match and what she's done especially the WTA girls," Osaka said. "Everyone knows how much she's changed women's tennis."
The plot is based on the 1973 match between King and Bobby Riggs. King's three-set triumph against Riggs was viewed by an estimated 50 million people in the United States and 90 million worldwide. The win was a milestone for women's tennis.
"It definitely must have been hard for her," Osaka said. "I don't know is it actors or stunt doubles that are actually hitting the balls."
Although Stone did learn tennis for the role, those crisp backhand slices and deep lobs didn't come from the Oscar-winning actress but from her "stunt double", Kaitlyn Christian. Riggs' strokes were orchestrated by Vince Spadea.
Osaka then reviewed one of the most famous outbursts in the sports' history from the 2017 Borg vs. McEnroe film. The 1980 Wimbledon final was a five-set thriller that kept audiences on their toes as they watched a hot-headed McEnroe take on the ice-cold Borg.
McEnroe's outbursts were shocking back then, but the sport has evolved and emotion is more common place. These days, McEnroe has embraced his former bad boy image, turning it into a big part of his brand.
"I think tennis is getting a bit more lax and I think that outbursts aren't that uncommon anymore," Osaka said.
Before closing out the review video, the world No. 11 reviewed a few more scenes including from the Netflix show Friends From College and the 2014 movie Break Point.
"I saw a lot of different techniques than I'm used to, I heard a lot of different grunting, one of them sounded like a bird," Osaka said. "I can't wait to try what I just witnessed in these scenes on the court."
