Naomi Osaka (23) returns to the semifinals of the Open D two years after being crowned in Melbourne – her first Grand Slam winner at next year’s US Open.Australia. Very close to the 16th round exit against Muguruza (he had to clear two match points) after a perfect but dangerous start to Pavluchenkova, Garcia and Zabur, the young Japanese did not tremble again, Hsieh against Su-Wei on Monday. At the age of 36, his opponent not only dropped four games, quickly finishing 3rd in the world (6-2, 6-2), facing the Taiwanese who played in the first quarter of his career as a major. Osaka entered the court with his best game in mind Tennis This allows him to find the impossible angles and take the scale of the transaction, regardless of the difference between his opponent known for his strikes with both left and right hands. The 2019 winner stuck to his original plan throughout the game and it paid off, perhaps better than he expected. It has to be said that Hsih, who was impressive on Monday in Japanese service games especially in this area, was far from offering the game of his life. Fever, perhaps nervous by the stocks, and the rage of the crowd, the 71st World gave many points directly to the 3rd seed of the competition, which he did not hear so much. Never broken, Osaka walked across the Taiwanese, he will not keep the memories of his first quarter in a major.

Alexis Ohanian also acted like a host (he is thus equal Roger Federer). Despite Romanian’s efforts (very frightening), especially at the start of the second set the World No. 2 lead was 2-0. However, it took longer for a Serena Williams to disrupt Tuesday, which is now (11th) lower than Halep, but more effective and more applicable.
