Naomi Osaka is back! With back to back titles at the Japan Open and China Open, Osaka has put the nightmare send half of the season behind her, and she looks like the player she was at the beginning of the year.
In Beijing, Osaka scored an impressive win over Bianca Andreescu in 3 hard-fought sets. Andreescu had hardly lost a match when fully fit since March. Osaka then beat Caroline Wozniacki in the semifinals and Ashleigh Barty in the finals.
Since her Australian Open win, she switched coaches and has a string of poor results. But now all that seems in the past and Osaka appears confident and is playing the brand of tennis that won the US Open last and the Australian Open this year.
