Taking the hype in her stride, Naomi Osaka is refusing to place a number on how many grand slam crowns she may win after emphatically confirming her status as the new dominant force in women's tennis.
Osaka is being hailed as a double-digit major winner in waiting after soaring into rarefied air with her latest Australian Open triumph at Melbourne Park.
The Japanese superstar is the first woman since Monica Seles 30 years ago to win her first four grand slam finals and, along with the great Roger Federer, only the third player in the Open era to achieve the feat.
"That's very amazing company," Osaka said.
"I hope that I can have, like, one grain of how their career has unfolded."
Serena and Venus Williams are the only active women's players with more slams than Osaka and three-time Open champion Mats Wilander is convinced the 23-year-old phenom will rack up "10, 11, 12 - minimum" before she calls it quits.
"She's the best hardcourt player we've had in the women's game since Serena was at her best," Wilander said after Osaka clubbed American Jennifer Brady 6-4 6-3 in Saturday night's one-sided final.
After adding a second Open title to her 2018 and 2020 US Open crowns, Osaka holds two of the sport's four biggest trophies and could conceivably secure a non-calendar-year grand slam if she wins the French Open in June and Wimbledon in July.
But she's only thinking of grand slam No.5 first.
"I honestly think I'd have better luck on clay because I think last year I didn't play bad at all," Osaka said.
"It's just something that I have to get more used to.
"Definitely there's no reason why I shouldn't do well in those tournaments."
Unbeaten in more than a year, Osaka revealed how the pain of her stinging last-up 6-0 6-3 loss to Spain's Sara Sorribes Torbo in the Fed Cup last February and 2020 Open third-round defeat to Coco Gauff had driven her inspired 21-match winning run since the tour's return from the pandemic-enforced suspension in August.
"I do remember what it feels like to lose a match, very vividly," she said.
"I remember it here, and I remember how I was feeling and what my mindset was.
"Honestly, it still makes me sad to this day so, yeah, it's quite a lingering memory."
Osaka, though, doesn't expect her undefeated run to last forever and is targeting "consistency" in 2021 rather than trying to hunt down Ash Barty's top ranking.
"I don't expect to win all my matches this year," the world No.2 said.
"Honestly, somebody can give me a medal if I win all my matches this year, but I don't think it's possible.
"Tennis players, we go through ups and downs. I only hope that my ups and downs are less drastic this year.
"I don't really think about the ranking at all. It will come if I play well and that's what I tell myself.
"I just want to do well in all of the tournaments that I play.
"That's my goal to be consistent this year, not to have a huge drop-off randomly in the middle section like June, July how I usually do."
Ominously for Osaka's rivals, Federer won his fourth slam from as many finals aged 23 years, one month and four days old.
Osaka won hers at 23 years, four months and four days.
