Naomi Osaka's boyfriend didn't know she was a tennis star before they met and revealed he felt 'really out of place' at the 2019 US Open

 Naomi Osaka's tennis prowess is undeniable, but her boyfriend didn't know about her success when they met.As part of GQ's modern lover's issue, Osaka and rapper Cordae got candid about navigating their relationship while making waves in their respective fields.


On Saturday, Osaka secured her fourth Grand Slam title when she defeated Jen Brady at the Australian Open. Cordae's debut album, "The Lost Boy," received two Grammy nominations for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song for his single, "Bad Idea."

According to GQ, the couple met two years ago and their first date was attending a Los Angeles Clippers game at Staples Center.

"We were on FaceTime trying to find each other because the arena was so big. And I just remember seeing that there were so many people who wanted to take a picture with him. And I just thought it was really cool how friendly and welcoming he was with everyone," Osaka, 23, told the outlet.

But at that time, Cordae was completely unaware of Osaka's tennis stardom.
