Australian Open: Naomi Osaka lifts Women's title defeating Jennifer Brady

@AustralianOpen
Japan's Naomi Osaka cemented her place as the outstanding star of the women's singles game by beating American Jennifer Brady in the Australian Open final to win her fourth Grand Slam title. Osaka, has remained unbeaten in major finals after today's 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 winning her past 20 matches.
 
In the Mixed Doubles, Barbora Krejcikova of Czech Republic and Rajeev Ram of US clinched the title. They defeated the Australian pair of Samantha Stosur and Matthew Ebden 6-1, 6-4 in the final match later in the day.
 
The Mens' Singles final will be played tomorrow. The title will set up a blockbuster against World No.1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic as Medvedev searching for his grand slam title.
