Osaka QF: (1) Naomi Osaka solves Yulia Putintseva, 6-4 6-4

Naomi

Great win for her, I liked how she dealt with Putintseva's dropshots and slices today - much better than she did in Birmingham and Wimbledon, though different surfaces.

Osaka was hitting her angled BHs very well today, and her FH too - as usual - but then she got a little tight towards the end of both sets, and Yulia as usual fought back in both sets as she always will.

Putin once again played well, got into Osaka's head A LOT - and really nearly pulled off a comeback from 1-5 in the 1st and 2-5 in the 2nd. Too bad about her injury at the 2nd to last point, I hope it isn't a season-ending injury and it's just a mild knock because she really couldn't serve in that last point.

Naomi's back later for her SF against Mertens.

The better player won ... finally. With no pressure of playing in Wuhan next week, Noami should take it all here.

PAST: Kim Clijsters - Maria Kirilenko - Ana Ivanovic - Yanina Wickmayer - Tatiana Golovin - Nicole Vaidisova

PRESENT: Garbińe Muguruza - Amanda Anisimova - Fanny Stollar - Sofya Zhuk - Petra Kvitova - Sloane Stephens - Donna Vekic - Lucie Safarova - Noami Osaka - Katie Boulter

Yeesus is Lawd, she won against her short-woman syndrome, vertically challenged nemesis. Her 2nd serves and BH saved the match. I want to cry on how she responded to those slices against her BH AND Poots ankle injury at MP. Horrible, get better Poots, we need your feistiness. Dad, what can I say? Now back to rugby and cleaning while waiting for Mertens, too bad the WTA TV didn’t show her match.

That interview So awkward. I wonder if Naomi is still actively practicing her Japanese. Serena does better interviews in French than Naomi does in Japanese.

Osaka in Osaka. Good win for her, but they need to meet up again outside of Osaka. If Naomi can beat her again, then Putin is solved.

Crazy MP. That ankle roll looked bad.

I guess hitting partner really regressed her game. I loved how she dealt with variety. Keep going naomi. I m happy!

In her last match, the on-court interview was all Japanese. WTF and all.
