Naomi Osaka had a fantastic start of 2019 after winning the Australian Open and becoming the new world no.1.

The Japanese was great in her run in Melbourne after she won 2 matches from being 1-set down against Su-Wei Hsieh and Anastasija Sevastova. In addition, Naomi impressed in the final against Petra Kvitova as she managed to regroup in the decider after she imploded in the second set when she was unable to convert 3 consecutive championship points.

The Japanese made history as she managed to become the first Asian player in history to conquer the very top of the rankings.

I am one of the main columnists for Tennistonic.com. I have been writing about tennis for the last 4 years. My passion for tennis dates back since the days of the Marat Safin challenging Roger Federer. I am a decent club player, but I have never reached those heights 🙂 Interested in the nextgen. Favorite players: Tsitsipas, Shapovalov, Tiafoe, De Minaur, and Coric. Curious to see what it is going to be with Kyrgios even if I am starting to think that he is a lost cause.
