(CNN)Naomi Osaka came from behind to win the US Open, and a day later, she looked back in gratitude far further into the past.
“I would like to thank my ancestors because everytime I remember their blood runs through my veins I am reminded that I cannot lose,” tweeted the tennis star Sunday. Her mother is Japanese and father is Haitian.
Osaka claimed her second US Open and third Grand Slam title.
