When Brady arrived in Australia in January, he had to undergo a rigorous 15-day quarantine due to someone testing positive for COVID-19 in flight. Around 7,500 spectators were allowed to sit in the stadium while spectator entry was interrupted at the start of the tournament for 5 days due to the lockdown of Kovid-19.

“I think I belong to that level. I think winning a Grand Slam is very achievable.”

Currently there are only 2 active players who have more Grand Slam titles than Osaka and Serena Williams (23) and Venus Williams (7). Now Osaka’s next task will be to improve her performance on clay and grass as she failed to reach the third round at Roland Garros or Wimbledon.

The opening set for the final was 4 all on February 20, when Brady picked up a brilliant winner, which encouraged the audience sitting in the stadium to cheer him on. It gave him a breaking point, but Osaka overcame it with a winner from afar and Brady’s two mistakes made it 5-4.

“I told everyone you were going to be a problem and I was right.”

Naomi Osaka then established her name by taking a break from serve, in which Jennifer Brady’s double fault also helped. Osaka went 4-0 in the second set, which was part of 6 consecutive game points, and then easily won it for themselves.
