Osaka has won two of three head-to-head games. Naomi defeated in the last match between tennis players at Roland Garros-2019 (4-6, 7-5, 6-3). In the last four matches in the tournament, Osaka scores more than 80% of points in the first serve. In six matches played at the US Open, the Japanese tennis player gave her serve only five times.
In our predictions for the matches with Naomi's participation, we noted her progress, improvement of the game directly during the tournament. In the last three matches in New York against Anette Kontaveit (6-3, 6-4), Shelby Rogers (6-3, 6-4) and Jennifer Brady (7-6, 3-6, 6-3) Osaka gave her serve only two times. At the same time, rivals had only three break points for three. Such indicators are impressive. In women's tennis it is not often that you see such reliable play on your serve over several matches in a row.
Osaka has consistently shown over 80% of her first serve points in each of her last matches. Even taking into account the excellent reception performed by Victoria Azarenka, it will clearly not be easy to contain such as Naomi.
The last time Azarenka played in the final of the Grand Slam tournament was back in 2013. Then Serena Williams did not allow the Belarusian tennis player to take the title (7-5, 6-7, 6-1). This year the impregnable American Victoria beat in the semifinals (1-6, 6-3, 6-3).
The semi-final turned out to be difficult for Azarenka. And it could hardly have been otherwise, taking into account the uncomfortable rival. Only in the second set Victoria did play out, she began to act more aggressively and boldly. Serena had no counter-arguments.
In general, during the tournament, Azarenka does not show any decline in the game. Only in certain segments of matches it is not possible to adapt immediately to the style of the opponents' play, but experience and tactical decisions, changes during the matches helped Victoria. We constantly wrote about this in our forecasts for her games. For example, this happened not only in the semifinals, but also in the 1/8 finals against Karolina Mukhova (5-7, 6-1, 6-4).
We believe that Naomi Osaka has more chances for her second US Open trophy. The Japanese tennis player demonstrates balanced tennis in all game components, has more reliable performance in her serve. Bookmaker analysts are also loitering in their quotes for the victory of the representative of Japan, with which we also agree.
Our prediction is Osaka's victory for the odds of 1.60 in BC 1xBet.
