Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka told Jennifer Brady she was “so sorry” on Sunday after she made an embarrassing blunder with the American player’s name. After beating Brady 6-4, 6-3 on Saturday to win her second title at Melbourne Park, the always polite Osaka began her victory speech by asking if she would rather be called Jennifer or Jenny. “Jenny,” Brady replied. Osaka then told the crowd, “First of all, I want to congratulate Jennifer,” which made the over 7,000 spectators at Rod Laver Arena laugh.

Osaka later apologized on Twitter and said she was mortified by her blunder.

“Omg no (crying emoji),” the Japanese player wrote. “I promise you my mind thought I called her Jenny at the time and I was so confused why the crowd was laughing. I’m so sorry.

“We played in the US Open semifinals a few months ago and I told everyone you’re going to be a problem,” Osaka told Brady when handing over the trophy.
