Tommy Haas: "Naomi Osaka will be a Superstar!"

Naomi Osaka serves to Jennifer Brady in the Australian Open final in Melbourne

But Osaka erased the chance with a cross-court forehand victor, and two errors by Brady made it 5-4. I was, like, Wow, she hits the ball huge.

"Regardless of all the success that she had, you know, I know that when you lose a big match you're frustrated".

As well as her previous Grand Slam pedigree, Osaka holds a 20-match winning streak which goes back to early February past year.

"For me, I have this mentality that people don't remember the runners up". "I think I fight the hardest in the finals". I think that's where you sort of set yourself apart. "It's something that I think, I don't know, it's like the biggest fight".

World No. 3 Naomi Osaka needed just two sets to defeat American Jennifer Brady in the Australian Open women's singles final on Saturday at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne Park to capture her fourth Grand Slam title.

"I'll definitely come out and I'll definitely be nervous 100% but there is no hiding it", Brady said.

Osaka is hot favourite against Brady, who is making her Grand Slam final debut after being forced into a hard 14-day quarantine ahead of the Australian Open, where she was confined to her hotel room and unable to train. Both women said they can draw on that as a reference but they've also evolved. "I think I didn't hit as many forehands as I would have liked to today from the middle of the court", Brady said then.

No. 3-seeded Naomi Osaka plays for her fourth Grand Slam title when she takes on first-time major finalist Jennifer Brady in Saturday's final.

Six more coronavirus-related deaths recorded in NI
Dr Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, said; "Although we have made great progress, the situation remains precarious". This leaves the pandemic totals at 7,169 confirmed cases, and 6,677 recoveries, while 431 cases remain active.

A swinging serve wide to the forehand goes out. Yeah, she's serving well. "Otherwise, you're the one running, and I don't want to be running".

Unquestionably, Brady is a unsafe player who has the weapons to hold serve and pressure Osaka.

Brady faces the ultimate test of her resilience against Osaka, who beat her in the U.S. Open semi-finals on the way to her third Grand Slam triumph.

"I used to weigh my entire existence on if I won or lost a tennis match", she said.

However she quickly recovered as nerves seemed to creep in on the other side, with the Japanese player starting to overplay and spray unforced errors around the court. The results have been outstanding.

"I'm proud and honored to be playing at the same time she does and to see her greatness, experience her greatness is a thrill".

Osaka tends to be harsh on herself, and against Williams she became so wrapped up in trying to serve perfectly that her serve and her focus faltered, leading to eight double faults.

The former UCLA All American carries clarity from her US Open semifinal loss into this final. "I think about that match a lot". For me, I had a lot of doubts in myself. Pressure is the unknown variable: How will Brady respond to the jitters of her first Grand Slam final? "That's just not how I feel anymore".
