On Saturday night the young Japanese star pulled out her best to beat Petra Kvitova, going all three sets 7-6, 5-7, 6-4.
Osaka is the first Japanese player to reach number 1. With a quick rise from outside the top 50 a year ago, we can’t wait to see what she brings in the future.
Last night was a clash between 1st and 2nd in the Mens Final. Djokovic taking on Nadal for the 53rd time.
Both came into the final looking good. Nadal hadn’t lost a set but the Serbian was just too good on the night, beating Nadal 6-3, 6-2, 6-3.
Congratulations to both on the Australian Open and looking forward to the rest of the tennis circuit in 2019.
