Perhaps the most Japanese statement ever to come from an athlete?

Naomi Osaka

Meet Naomi Osaka, an 18-year-old tennis player, representing Japan. She just won her first ever match at a Grand Slam tournament, beating Donna Vekic. While it was a great, personal success, it also meant that most dreaded-by-teenagers combination: attention and being asked questions by grown-ups.

Having spent most of her upbringing in Florida, the daughter of a Haitian father and Japanese mother is still learning Japanese, but spends a lot of time in the country, having the following perhaps all-time greatest summation of why she really, really likes Japan: “I just like the food and stuff,” she said of japan. “And I’m really introverted so I feel that I fit in more there.”
