Gauff intimidates Osaka in another “unreal” victory!


Coco Gauff avenged her US Open loss to Naomi Osaka by dominating the defending champion 6-3 6-4 in the third round of the Australian Open.

Coco Gauff

After their 2019 encounter in Flushing Meadows, Osaka made headlines by showing compassion and consoling her young opponent, but today it was the Japanese former world No.1 who needed a hug, as Gauff wasted just 67 minutes to beat her 6-3 6-4, finishing both sets with love holds!

Fifteen-year-old Gauff continues to impress with her no-panic attitude and her maturity on and off the court. Serving at 75%, Gauff never seemed endangered by Osaka, comfortably earning crucial breaks midway through the first and second sets.

Osaka showed some resilience only when she broke right back to level to 1-1 at the start of the second set and then kept the lead by holding serve until 3-3. Otherwise, the match was absolutely in Gauff’s hands, as the world No.67 earned her first Top 5 win and second appearance in the fourth round of a Grand Slam.
