Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka emerged the 2021 Australia Open champion, after beating American Jennifer Brady in the final to win her fourth Grand Slam title.
The 23-year-old is unbeaten in major finals after seeing off Brady 6-4 6-3 win in Melbourne.
Osaka edged the first set when Brady, in her first Grand Slam final, paid for some glaring errors in the final game.
The third seed seized control from that point, racing 4-0 ahead in the second set before sealing a deserved victory.
Osaka has now won two Australian Open titles after also triumphing at Melbourne Park in 2019, with her other Grand Slam successes coming at the US Open in 2018 and 2020.
She has not suffered a defeat since February 2020 after victory over Brady was her 21st successive match win.
Speaking on her latest triumph, Osaka said:”It feels incredible to have fans, I played the last Grand Slam without fans, to have this energy means a lot.
“I feel like playing a Grand Slam is a privilege.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
