Naomi Osaka is in her back to back slam final at the Australian Open after her triumph in New York.

The Japanese will face Petra Kvitova in the Melbourne final for a match that will define the 2019 Australian Open champion and the world no.1 that will be either Naomi or Petra.

It would be amazing to be world no.1. NAOMI OSAKA

About getting to the top of the rankings, Naomi commented

“Of course I think it’s amazing if I could be No. 1. For me, I just think about this tournament and each match and each step that gets me closer to the ranking. I don’t think anyone plays a tournament and thinks immediately they want to be No. 1. I think they just think about the goal, which is winning the tournament.

For me, last year I was ranked 70 something, I think. I’m just really happy that I’m in the position that I am now, and I’m not going to take it for granted.”

I fell in love with tennis after the epic 2008 Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. From that moment I started to check all the possible stats and the stories behind the tennis players. I have a huge passion for Roger Federer, a great respect for Rafael Nadal and I am interested in the newcomers. Aryna Sabalenka and Naomi Osaka are my favorite players on the WTA tour.
