Despite her young age (she is only 22), Osaka is already a two-time winner of the US Open. Last week, she defeated Belarusian tennis player Victoria Azarenka.
Prior to that, Osaka had to withdraw from the Western and Southern Open final with a pulled hamstring, letting Azarenka to win. She hoped that the hamstring would recover overnight, but it did not.
Back in 2019, she also won the Australian Open.
