Naomi Osaka and Petra Kvitova are going to play in the final of the Australian Open. The outcome of this match will not only decide who is going to be the champion but also who is going to be the world no.1 after Melbourne (Naomi or Petra).
During this Australian Open, the Naomi has consolidated her status as a top player to “confirm” that her US Open title didn’t come by chance. The Japanese has impressed for showing the mental strength to recover from difficult situations like her match against Hsieh when was very close to defeat. Furthermore, Naomi looked completely comfortable to play important matches like the semifinal against Pliskova.
Currently ranked no.6, Petra has been playing fantastic tennis in Melbourne where she hasn’t dropped a single set for the entire fortnight. The only time that she had to fight was in the 1st set of the semifinal against Danielle Collins.
Head to head Naomi Osaka vs. Petra Kvitova
Naomi and Petra have never played each other. Impossible to pick a favorite.
