The called it the sentimental final, a match that could only give an up-to-date story, it does not matter who won. Still Naomi Osaka has almost undergone a Jana Novotna-disaster catastrophe because she has allowed three top points to slide through her cords.
While the tennis looks for her next supersteller, it may be a pity that Osaka – who is only 21 – could recover. She came in this tournament by destroying her own habit to become sulky during difficult matches. How quickly and decisively she learned the lesson, managing her own disappointment as a Veteran Veteran.
After losing the last four games of the second set, and thus to be dragged into a decisive, Osaka left the yard with his cloth on his head. She later accepted that she used the cloth to hide her tears. But when she came back, she seemed to have wiped her hard drive and wiped out memory of her previous suffocation. And when the opportunity came back, she took it completely stupid.
So it was that Osaka completed his 7-6, 5-7, 6-4 win over Petra Kvitova, and set up many significant statistics. First and most important, she will be the new world Not 1 when the ranking is released on Monday, the first Asian player of sex at the top of the stairs. At this, she broke the sequence of eight different slam winners in so many tournaments. And it became the first winner of the Grand Slamin to double the next major of Jennifer Capriati in 2001.
First of all, she changed the story of women's tennis. So far, it was supposed that Serena Williams would win some tournament she was attending, provided she could reach her optimum level. Now you have to think that Williams is even fit and firing would have a hard time to win to Osaka, and perhaps Kvitova as well.
