Victory at the Australian Open: Naomi Osaka wins her 4th Grand Slam individual title

It was a rematch well worth seeing. In the women’s final of the Australian Open 2021 on Saturday, February 20, the Japanese Naomi Osaka defeated the American Jennifer Brady 6-4, 6-3. Back to last year’s US Open semifinals, where Osaka beat Brady, to reach the finals and later take home the title. During that tournament, Osaka called the 2020 US Open semi-finals “memorable”. This is Osaka’s second win at the Australian Open after winning in 2019, and it’s her fourth Grand Slam singles title in less than three years (the 2018 US Open against Serena Williams was her first). She got off to a strong start amid the cheers from the crowd at half capacity at Rod Laver Arena by sweeping Brady in the first game, and they traded shots for most of the opening set. The match went on in their favor. While Brady first competed in a Grand Slam final on Saturday – a career that is the best on its own – it was Osaka’s fourth, meaning that she has won every time she made it to a big one Finals made it. (No big deal!) Brady, who started her sophomore season for UCLA, was also the first woman to play in college, according to ESPN, and later to reach a grand final at the 1983 Australian Open since Kathy Jordan. The 23-year-old Osaka, the highest paid female athlete in the world since last year, thanked her team and fans during the on-court ceremony. After congratulating Brady, she added, “I think we’re going to play a lot more games so here it is.” Check out some pictures of the incredible championship beforehand. Congratulations Osaka! Although she didn’t need luck, this butterfly from round three might have brought luck after all. Related: Before Jennifer Brady turned pro, she played tennis at UCLA – Find out more about her
