Naomi Osaka has had her share of ups and downs so far in her short-lived tennis career. Saturday was another high for her as she took down Jennifer Brady and claimed the Australian Open title. The 6-4, 6-3 win means she extended the number of matches without a loss to 21 and it saw her capture a fourth Grand Slam title in the process.
In fact, she has never lost a final at a ‘major,’ showing just how good she is when the pressure it at its highest. It also means she’s won half- four out of eight- of the majors she has competed in, a rate of wins that most of us mere mortals could only dream of. The 23-year old has more titles than all active players currently except for two. The Williams sisters, Serena (23) and Venus (7) have her beat, but she could make up a lot of ground, especially on hard courts, in the years to come.
