Osaka adjusting to clay in time for French Open

SHOWS: PARIS, FRANCE (MAY 24, 2019) (FFT - NO RESALES) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NAOMI OSAKA SAYING: "Yes, I mean, definitely for me I feel like I should be an all-court player.

Honestly, it's been a bit of a ride trying to figure out how to play better on clay throughout these years, but I think this year I have been playing well.

So I'm really excited to see what happens here." 2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NAOMI OSAKA, ASKED WHAT HER NEXT MAJOR GOAL IS, SAYING: "I mean, Roland Garros.

That's, for me, what I'm dreaming about right now.

If you're talking about longer goals, of course I haven't won Wimbledon yet either, and it would be really cool to win everything in one year." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NAOMI OSAKA, ASKED IF SHE'S GOING INTO THE TOURNAMENT THINKING SHE WILL WIN, SAYING: "The U.S. Open, no.

The U.S. Open mainly because I lost three matches in a row before that.

Honestly I just wanted to play well, maybe get to the quarters, you know, just have a good time.

But then I ended up winning.

But actually, in Australia, I was, like, I was the the goal was to win.

That was what I was waking up every day thinking." STORY: Naomi Osaka believes she is finally getting to grips with claycourt tennis as she is about to start her first grand slam as the top seed at this year's French Open.

The world number one from Japan has won the last two majors -- the U.S. and Australian Opens -- but she has yet to claim a title on the slowest surface.

"Honestly, it's been a bit of a ride trying to figure out how to play better on clay throughout these years, but I think this year I have been playing well.

So I'm really excited to see what happens here," Osaka said.

If Osaka wins in Paris and takes the Wimbledon crown in July she will become the first woman since Germany's Steffi Graf in 1988 to hold all four titles.

However when asked what her next goal was, Osaka refused to look beyond the next tournament.

"Roland Garros.

That's, for me, what I'm dreaming about right now.

If you're talking about longer goals, of course I haven't won Wimbledon yet either, and it would be really cool to win everything in one year." (Production: Andy Ragg)
