Considered a milestone on her to do list, a journalist asked Naomi Osaka what will it mean to her to go into the French Open top seed after saying in Madrid that's what she wanted. Osaka said:

"After Madrid I kinda stopped thinking about it... I came to number one by by winning the Grand Slam so obviously I need to win stuff to stay there... I have to think about winning tournaments... That's sort of what I've been thinking about this entire tournament."

"That definitely was a very big goal of mine," she continued, "but for now I am just trying to take it one match at a time."
