 Naoto Osakas first career in the top eight Australian Open: more confident than ever this year

Melbourne, Australia - On January 21, local time, the Australian Open continued its fourth round of womens singles in the 2019 season. Naomi Osaka, the No. 4 seed, overcomes the disadvantage of losing one set first, reverses No. 13 seed Sevastova with 4-66-36-4, and breaks into the top eight of the Australian Open for the first time in her career.

Naomi Osaka won the first career Grand Slam title at the US Open last year. After beating the Latvian in an hour and 47 minutes today, she has won 11 consecutive Grand Slam victories.

Sevastova also made a breakthrough at the US Open last year, making her the first Grand Slam top four in her career. The last confrontation between the two sides was at Brisbane Station this year. Naoto Osaka won three thrilling rounds in a fierce battle with the United States. With a chilling determination to enter the Rodraver Stadium, Sevastova did not face a break point in the first set, with the only break to win the first place.

Naomi Osaka is not afraid of backwardness. She was only two games short of being eliminated when facing Xie Shuwei in the last round, but she still achieved the reversal by relying on her tenacious fighting spirit. The Japanese girl saved a breaking point in the second set, then captured Sevastovas serve for the first time, taking a 4-2 lead. She maintained her advantage until the end of the set, and it didnt take her opponents long to drag them into the final set.

Naomi Osaka scored 51 winners in the game, but her high-risk approach also led to 43 unforced errors. She cashed three of the four break points, scoring 70% in one shot, and also scored seven wins.
