Naomi Osaka and Anastasija Sevastova are going to play each other in the quarter-final at the Brisbane Internationa on Thursday at 3 pm local time.
Seeded no.2, Naomi is arguably the strongest player left in the draw after Elina Svitolina, seeded no.1, crashed out in the opener. Osaka had a good start of her Brisbane campaign after conceding just 5 games in her first match to Destanee Aiava (6-3 6-2).
Currently ranked no.11, the Latvian has dropped just 8 games in the first 2 matches in Brisbane after she defeated Daria Gavrilova 6-3 6-3 and Harriet Dart 6-2 6-0.
