this sounds a bit high brow for a tennis players taste! :D
Opera being "too highbrow" for a tennis player... This opinion testifies to a kind of cultural degradation of the tennis world. A 100 yrs ago, even 50 yrs ago, it would be considered absurd. Both opera and tennis were then considered a higher taste entertainment. Who and when destroyed it and made tennis players look almost as primitive as ball kickers? McEnroe with his boorish rants? Sharapova and followers with their on court roaring?

nope - just the fact that 99.9% of female players seem to only listen to boring, radio friendly American R&B.

Not trying to be mean or anything and it's great that Osaka gets media attention but she doesn't exactly have the body to pull such a photoshoot off.

Also that same boring expression on all pictures...
