Osaka wins first set against Kvitova in Australian Open final
27 January 2019, 12:40 | Tracey Rhodes
Naomi Osaka has won her first Australian Open crown earning two Grand Slam titles in a row More
"Public speaking isn't really my strong side".
"It took me a while to kind of get used to it".
But what else was she going to say?
Japanese superstar Naomi Osaka on Saturday clinched the Australian Open final after overpowering Czech Republic's Petra Kvitova in a scintillating 7-6 (2) 5-7 6-4 win in Melbourne. "I think if I didn't regroup after the second set, then I would have looked back on this match and probably cried or something".
And when quizzed on how she manages to stay so cool in the face of adversity, she revealed she has the ability to "turn her feelings off" and become a "robot". Her defensive efforts and movement stymied all of Kvitova's attempts to find rhythm in the decider. Not only is she playing great tennis, but she's doing it against top players and she's dealing with the pressure of being a defending champion very well.
"Thanks to my team". Like right after, the day after, I really didn't want to think about it because it wasn't necessarily the happiest memory for me.
Saturday's final saw the best and worst of Osaka's game.
This win propels Naomi Osaka to the No.1 rank for the first time in her career, making her the first Asian player - male or female - to have done so.
It was Osaka who was the first to get ahead, tearing through the tiebreaker by grabbing five points in a row - four via winners - to go up 5-1.
But the 21-year-old showed she can fight too, and steeled herself for a 7-6 (7-2), 5-7, 6-4 victory at Rod Laver Arena, and there were tears of joy instead of frustration as she sunk to her knees.
The Czech had won her last eight finals and more than played her part in a generally high-quality encounter but in the end had no answer. Osaka is a young, up-and-coming star who proved she's here to say, whereas Kvitova overcame the odds to make it back. The 21-year-old will also be the youngest No. 1 in almost a decade; Caroline Wozniacki was 20 when she first ascended to that spot in 2010.
