Video: Andrea Petkovic vs Naomi Osaka Highlights - 2014 Bank of the West Classic

Andrea Petkovic takes on Naomi Osaka (Haiti) in the second round of the Bank of the West Classic.

She was born in Osaka, Japan. Her father was born in Haiti and went to college at NYU before moving to Japan, where he met and married her mother. When one reporter asked her if it was a coincidence that her last name also happened to be her hometown, Osaka deadpanned: "No, because everyone that was born in Osaka, their last name is Osaka." Her older sister Mari is two years older. She also plays tennis and was playing doubles in Stanford this week. - SI
