They weren't dating, just beginning to chat online, then he made those conversations available to the public. That's probably why she tanked this week!!

She is so guarded she is the type that would be upset in situations like these.

WORLD NO. 1 NAOMI OSAKA ADDS JERMAINE JENKINS TO HER TEAM

Writing on social media, Osaka thanked Jenkins for "coming on board" but did not specify his role. The former ATP player had recently been appointed a USTA coach and was previously a hitting partner for Venus Williams.

Osaka's previous coach, Sascha Bajin, had been a hitting partner for Serena Williams and other top WTA players. While working with Bajin, Osaka won her first title and two Grand Slam events, but she said there was conflict off the court.

The No. 1-ranked Osaka had said she wanted to find a coach by Indian Wells, which begins next week. Osaka is the tournament's defending champion.

Grosse, I thought it was announced that Jermaine would come on as her "head coach"?!

She's really trying to follow the WS playbook with all her coaching picks. Just saying!!

True ... She got Sasha, a former Serena coach/partner. And now someone who used to work with Venus.
Is Naomi the next Williams sister? At least 7 slams? She is certainly drinking from the same fountain.

Djmm, yep. The WS are paving the way for her, and why not? Look how long their respective careers have been to date? Even in her wanting to put the brakes on the tennis and balance out her life point to her taking cues from the WS.

Yep.. Naomi should hire Venus herself as coach.
Hope she defends her Indian Wells title. Gonna be hard without Sasha around. It's going to take a while to get used to the new coach.

Ace2Ace, Naomi thanked Sascha for 'hitting with me.' That doesn't seem like he was her coach.
