Jennifer Brady vs Naomi Osaka: Storylines and Head-To-Head
Although Brady will make her debut in Grand Slam finals, she will try not to think about that at all. In fact, she could use the fact that people named ‘Brady’ are winning championships lately and use that in her favor. She won’t have the easiest rival of all but after beating really good players, nothing seems impossible for her.
She started the tournament beating Spanish Aliona Bolsoba Zandinov, before facing her fellow American Madison Brengle. In the 3rd round, she faced Kaja Kuvan and Donna Vekic in the 4th one. In the quarter-finals, the inspired Jessica Pegula wasn’t competition for Brady, who signed her name on this game with a win over Karolina Muchova in the semis.
If you’re a tennis fan, you know Naomi Osaka is one of the hottest names in the game right now. This game has been improving her level since making her debut as a pro and this tournament has been a walk for her.
She started her participation against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, before facing Caroline García. Ons Jabeur waited for her in the 3rd round but she wasn’t a problem for Naomi. Garbiñe Muguruza received the Japanese in the fourth round, making things a little hard for the young player. Hsieh Su-wei was her rival in the quarter-finals before she clashed with the GOAT, Serena Williams, who didn’t mean a big obstacle for the inspired player.
This will be the third match between these two girls, after facing each other in 2014 and last year, in the semi-finals of the US Open in one of the best matches of the year.
