I wanted to end the match without controversy: Osaka
Osaka said that I have always seen everyone quarreling with officials after match points. In such a situation, I think you can hurt yourself. So I wanted me to finish the match safely.
Not disappointed but sad to lose: Azarenka
Azarenka said I am not disappointed. However, sad to lose. I could not win despite being close. I am not thinking much about it? I won or lost, but I am not going to change much. It was only an experience. I had a fantastic two weeks. I enjoyed it very much.
