Danielle Collins stunned the tennis world after reaching a sensation semifinal at the Australian Open last January coming literally from nowhere.
The American impressed in Melbourne also for a couple of astonishing wins against Caroline Garcia (6-3 6-2) and especially the one over Angelique Kerber (6-0 6-2).
Her run in Australian was even more remarkable if you take into consideration that the 25-year-old didn’t manage to win a single match in a WTA main draw until 2018.
Why Danielle Collins is happy to play Naomi Osaka in Indian Wells
The American collected just 1 game when she played Naomi Osaka in Beijing last year (6-1 6-0), Nevertheless, during a recent interview with the Tennis Channel, she admitted that she was excited to face the world no.1 again. When she was asked about her feelings about that, she replied
“I have nothing to lose. It would be another great opportunity for me to go and play some good tennis hopefully and do better than I did last time.”
This will be a very interesting match and Naomi Osaka should be careful about the American.
