Osaka resists sledgehammer blows Brady and reaches final US Open

Naomi Osaka reached the finals of the US Open again. The Japanese champion of 2018 and number eight of the world survived a barrage of sledgehammer blows by Jennifer Brady in the semi-finals: 7-6 (1), 3-6, 6-3.

It was only at 2-1 in the third set that Osaka got his first break point on the mandatory serve of American number 41 of the world. She took advantage of that and in the end she set Brady a checkmate.

Incredible winners

Osaka generally served even better and Brady, who alternated incredible winners with quick faults, was also defensively the boss. Only in the second set was the American – she hadnt lost a set in this tournamentprecise enough.

Osaka plays in the final against the winner of the duel between Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka.
