Since then, the couple have grown from strength to strength and despite having busy careers always support one another.
"Honestly, he’s quite a romantic dude," Naomi said of her partner, adding that one of his most romantic moments came when he flew out to support her at the US Open even though he was really busy and she was allowed a limited number of people with her due to coronavirus restrictions.
"I really appreciated that. I’m not sure if I’ve told him that. I feel like he actually really helped me win just, like, keeping up the motivation."
Cordae added that Naomi always makes time to come on tour with him.
"She’ll just take time out of, you know, whatever she got going on training and things of that nature to just come with us on tour for, like, two weeks at a time."
He added that he knew Naomi was his match when she opened him up to new experiences, thanks to her "very worldly perspective."
"I can’t really be with someone who doesn’t have any substance or doesn’t act or think on the same frequency and wavelength as I do. Like, you know, Naomi was born in Japan. So she has a very worldly perspective. My perspective has always been being a young Black man in America. But she thinks more worldly. I’ve only been traveling the world the last two years. We’d be recommending each other books and movies all the time. So, you know, just always feeding the brain."
In May 2021 Naomi made the decision to not take part in press conferences at the French Open to protect her mental health.
After copping a hefty fine, the 23-year-old then decided to withdraw from the Grand Slam competition, explaining to her fans on Instagram that she's suffered "long bouts of depression since the US Open in 2018" and as an introvert with social anxiety, has a hard time coping with it.
"I'm gonna take some time away from the court now, but when the time is right I really want to work with the Tour to discuss ways we can make things better for the players, press and fans," she wrote.
The tennis World No. 2 received support from figures including the Williams sisters, Usain Bolt, Lewis Hamilton and more, but the sweetest comment came from Cordae.
"No need to apologize to ANYBODY !" he wrote in response to her post.
It's safe to say Cordae and Naomi are relationship goals.
After the rapper and singer shared a loved-up post captioned "To be Young, Gifted, and Black," fans couldn't help but squeal with excitement in the comments.
"Love these two together!! Beautiful people!!" one exclaimed.
"Rooting for y'all!" penned another.
