The Japanese Naomi Osaka, who had already won the final controversy of the US Open in 2018, was left with the Australian Open.
In September 2018, in the United States Open, the "previous" was experienced, just when Serena Williams treated the judge of lying and thief. That day Naomi Osaka won, who ended up in sleeplessness, and today, four months later, his definitive consolidation came.
As such, as Japanese (fourth in the WTA) will be the new number one in the world starting tomorrow, thanks to the title in the Australian Open, after beating Czech Petra Kvitova (8th ) for 7-6, 5-7, and 6-4. It will be the youngest tennis player (20 years old) when arriving at the summit from Wozniacki, in 2010.
"I feel like I'm alive but that's not really real (…) I am now happy to have won the title, maybe in the next tournament I feel a little more seeing my name next to the number one," he said Osaka, who will move from the top one to Romanian Simona Halep.
Thus, the tennis player begins with his right foot in 2019, which wants to emulate Australia Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
