Rome R(16): Osaka def Buzarnescu 6-3 6-3

Naomi played great but first set she was just unplayable
100 % first serve win first set
80% second serve won in first set
14 winners and 8 errors
overall good performance
Dominant display. This match was even better than first one. 2 lopsided wins in a day! i Hope she keeps her improvement.
match stats
88% first serve won
61% second serve points won. 27 winners 15 erros
4 out of 9 bps won and lost one serve game
Athough bertens is favourite but if naomi plays like this, she can cause upset..

She is getting better and better...at the right time.

I still think she needs to be more clutch with BPs.

Just what the doctor ordered: two matches in one day, two routine 3 & 3 wins

A very good opportunity to get a big clay scalp next round.

KiKi bertens. Kiki has more chances to win as she is better clay court player but if naomi serves like this, she can won it too

Wow. I will be looking forward to this one. I'm glad she is playing Kiki already since her no 1 ranking is secured already.

I kinda get the impression that Naomi was finding it hard to focus. She was smiling and giggling to herself constantly. I could see her telling herself to concentrate, haha.

Easy win though.

Easy win for Naomi

I think she stays number 1 until Wimbledon.

Naomi's game is coming up nicely before french open with playing lots of matches. So i hope it shows results at french open where she makes a good run

Definition of a routine win. Even when Buzarnescu broke back in the second set, you never had the feeling anything could happen to Osaka.

You should tone it down a bit, unless you want to end like TennisFed and have a giant meltdown when/if she loses next Winning 6-3 against Buzarnescu is not being unplayable. But she looked good, I agree, at least to the extent that the super slump our favorite TF experts were predicting is not happening. I wonder what would have happened if she could have closed it out against Bencic last week. I didn't think so after she lost, but seeing the way Halep is playing and how frustrated she is at every little adversity, she would have had a chance.

I said before clay swing that any improvement over last year i will take. I am not saying she will win french bcoz she is far from great on clay lol. But in first set she really played awesome and served amazing. I mean today anyone would ve been in trouble with her serve.
But i am happy that she is growing as a player. Tomorrow against bertens we will see her actual clay level bcoz bertens is amazing on clay. So i just hope she performs well even if she doesnt win. I am happy with clay swing overall compared to hard court swing but i think adjusting with new coach is also d reason. Last loss was terrible and one of the worst chokes i have ever seen
