  1. I think the split has to do with the personal relationship, she hesitates in saying anything that night look as if shes throwing him off a cliff, but when she say ' you have to be around him ' that implies a behavioural issue to me

  2. I don't know what she's talking about because I haven't seen anyone speculate that it was about money. Plus that doesn't even make sense because I'm sure she's pulling in a lot of money from Japanese endorsements alone

  3. I believe he mistook her kindness for weakness.

  4. I believe her – we will see if she can do okay without him – I am sorry that they had to part ways – but I do believe there are no accidents! Let's support her tennis! xo

  5. Okay, now … PLEASE STOP comparing Osaka to Serena. Osaka is mentally fragile. It will be interesting to see who step in and accept that role as babysitter.

  6. I wonder if Osaka was joyfully happy prior to her family hiring Bajin. You know, that long stretch of time when she won … well, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. If THAT'S the 'happiness' she wants, then so be it. The girl is mentally fragile, I tell you.

  7. I hope whoever take the coaching job get the most $$$ up front and be ready to get fired within a short time – unless he was hitting on her or commit fraud, this is the most insane thing I ever seen especially for someone so young and inexperienced and so little success before he became her coach, if you are going to dump a coach who help you go from 100 to 1 in one year and win 2 straight slams because of "personal happiness" good luck to ANYONE who has to coach this loca from here on after, she is a fantastic talent, hope it doesn't all go in flames because of her ego

  8. People speculate a lot (both Naomi fans and haters) about the reasons of their split, but the only thing 100% sure is that all this gossip is already affecting her mentally. And having the dominant Japanese traits she has, so much self-awareness (typical in Japanese culture) will be detriment to her mental strength in the court, which we all know is unfortunately not as strong as other top-10 players, let's face it (I know she's only 21 but…).
    Just hope all the GOSSIP stops now and people leave her alone… which probably won't happen because she's reached a stardom status already 🙁 She has to learn to deal with these kind of things in and out-the-court if she wants to be a real "star", and not just a shooting start. Good Luck in 2019 season, Naomi!

  10. He probably has a derogatory way of coaching….hard to take….

  11. I appreciate the effort to report this but I don't think anything was divulged here…she goes from 68 to 1 in a year amazing!! and fires the person that helped her…hmmm …way more than money here

  12. It's clear he was in love with her but she didn't feels the same towards him.
    It's so sad they would of reach the sky and beyond together as player's coach relationship.

  13. This is a big mistake IMO splitting with Bajin. They seemed to have good chemistry and she had great success with him. Very weird.

  14. I told you guys but you didn't listen: He proposed to her!!!

    "Will you marry me?"
    "No, I need to win more grand slams."
    "I'll leave you then."
    "OK, bye."

  15. This is about sex. I think perhaps they were sleeping together and they broke up. This is a stupid decision by Osaka she thrived with Sasha.

  17. Her quote. "I don't want to say anything bad about him." So he definitely did something bad/inappropriate. And I knew it wasn't money related…

  19. She's better than Clijsters then….I was a fan of Kim, but after how she treated her coach and staff, she lost my respect.

  21. Sad to see the split…..a winning combination.

  22. Always 2 sides of the story. They already knew that AO would be their last stint. How embarrassing for Sasha giving his interview as coach of the year. Taking about the belief of longevity. Big shoes to fill, for whoever's next. Huge expectations, welcome to the frying pan!

  23. So gossip it is? For someone who doesn't want to talk bad about the person but here she is, painting that person with so much words to speculate. She's making him hard to find an employment.

  24. Naomie I have a lot of respect for you but what you said doesn't really make sense. For me your judgment is not mature but I understand your are still young. In 10 years you will understand what I am talking about. Happiness is within you, it is coming from your heart, nobody can make you really happy you must understand this. Why didn't seat down with your coach and talk to him face to face?. Apparently you just relied on your feelings and you didn't open up to him until you sacked him. For me you are wrong. You should have sitted down with him and explain to him your feelings, what you are expecting from him. Rather than that you wouldn't talk to him. You wouldn't open up to him. I am not condemning you but you are wrong. By ignorance you think that sacking him is the solution but no naomie. Believe me naomie another coach will come and if you don't change you will still be unhappy. These are my solutions for you: first of all When you have a problem with a coach, talk to him, be clear to him, open up yourself to them, don't be shy it is not good. Secondly try to understand others, you have to support others bad characters too, because no one is perfect. Last solution is what I said previously, happiness is coming from you heart, your inner being, no one or nothing can give you really happiness. People can give you pleasure, fun which are for a moment, it doesn't last long. But happiness remains always and it is coming from within you . If you want to have this happiness that last forever, inbox me and I will tell you how.

  26. Really ungrateful. Sabotage her former coach big time by saying that she does not want to talk bad things abt him. Hope her ranking will nosedive from now.

  30. But she did not explain anything lol. All she kept saying is she is not going to say anything bad about him. Why stay with him if you are not right. To use him to win more titles then drop him. It makes no sense

  31. Your hook line is a Lie, or Joke we don't know anymore than before we came here! stop click baiting people!

  32. Osaka is the real deal. She has the talent, the hunger and the desire. She just needs the right coach to keep the momentum going. I hope the best for Sasha and Osaka. I really felt their union would be life long and definitely sad that it is not. There have been rumors from money, sexual and performed enhancing drugs as the reasons for the departure. We may never know the truth. . What we do know is that Sasha and Osaka's relationship is over. Sasha led Osaka to two Grand Slams and a number one ranking. You can't ask for anything better than that. I would have loved for the relationship to last longer but certain things are for a season, and the season is now over, but not the careers for Osaka or Sasha.

  33. Her next coach is going to have big Problems with her. She's young has Money and now Famous!!! I don't think anyone will be able to tell her what she don't want to hear….

  34. This isn't the first time Sascha has been fired. He was fired by Serena, then fired by Vika and then fired by Caroline and now Naomi. Also, they had much success with him in their camp, Serena won multi slams, Caroline won AO and YEC, and then Naomi won USO and AO. I have heard rumors of course he made advancements but we'll have to wait and see what happens.

  35. Lol @ all these comments defending Sascha as if you know him personally. Sure, he coached & helped her with her rankings but that doesn't mean she's not a very talented player in the first place. Osaka's trained hard & puts in all the hours to get where she is today, so give her some credits! Did anyone not see or noticed Osaka practiced alone at the AO & they hardly talked as she mentioned at the press conference? & Sascha gets credits for helping Osaka win her back-to-back Major Titles when Osaka did it all on her own. Top players split with their coach after winning Major Title also, so why zoom in on Osaka so much & hating on her all of a sudden?!? Whatever the decision, that's her business. Which ever ways, no doubts people will still be judge mental!

  36. She spoke around the reason, but the question still remains. WHY?

    Reply
  37. Perhaps she wants to learn new things with a new coach. Good, she has a taste for more learning. Very important in her profession.

  38. She should say why….she is the employer.
