Naomi Osaka - Take a Bow

 If what Naomi Osaka did at the US Open represents the new generation, I am so happy for them. For her to wear headbands on seven different matches with the names of people who have been killed in racial violence, was a huge statement to make at this stage in her career. She did and carried it off with grace and elegance.

Well done Naomi, sometimes you need to show you are more than a sportsperson. You need to show you are human. After hearing the same cliches spouted by sportsmen over the years it was refreshing to see this.

In the course of an hour, I was converted from an apathetic watched to a huge fan. Go girl!
