Former World No.1 Naomi Osaka isn't letting her pregnancy get in the way of her tennis training, and the Japanese athlete is doing so in the iconic company of Andre Agassi. This has tennis fans wondering about an exciting prospect.
Osaka recently treated her fans to a glimpse of her exercise routine in the US during her time off from touring. In a since-deleted post, the 25-year-old could be seen hard at work, hitting some tennis balls and working the treadmill. The former World No. 1 also gave a peek into her drill on the beach.

However, what caught tennis fans' attention was one of the videos where the player was seen on the court with American tennis legend Andre Agassi keeping an eye on her.
It is worth noting that a few days back, a picture of Osaka, Agassi, Steffi Graf and Agassi’s former tennis coach Brad Gilbert during the same practice session surfaced on social media.
These new glimpses have fans wondering about the interesting prospect of Agassi teaming up with the four-time Grand Slam champion as her new coach.
"Is Agassi her coach now?" one fan wondered.

"Love it! Also, An Agassi/Osaka coach/athlete pairing would be incredibly interesting. He had such a great return, & was so creative on court. He dealt with a lot of personal struggles that were even different to the struggles Naomi faces. But he still might be able to help," another fan said.
"My guess is that she doesn’t want to get rusty and Agassi is helping her stay in shape and sharp. The fact that she’s training while pregnant and consulting with them tells me she wants to come back & really be on top," one individual observed.
