US Open: Osaka regains the last four

Naomi Osaka qualified for the semi-finals of the US Open by beating Australia’s Shelby Rogers (6-3, 6-4) on Tuesday. She is invited to the last four of the Grand Slam for the first time in over a year and a half.

Japanese Naomi Osaka, 9th in the world, qualified for the semi-finals of the US Open on Tuesday by eliminating 6-3, 6-4 American Shelby Rogers (93rd) whom she had never beaten before in three confrontations so far. “She had the advantage because she had always beaten me. So I had a feeling of revenge and I think my attitude was the right one”, welcomed Osaka who clearly dominated his opponent this time. .

The Japanese, winner at Flushing Meadows in 2018 and then at the Australian Open 2019 but who had not passed 8th in the Grand Slam since, will face the American Jennifer Brady (41st) for a place in the final. At 22, the former world No. 1 is the youngest player still in the running. She had withdrawn on August 29 just before her final in Cincinnati due to a thigh injury.

She has been playing since the start of the US Open with a huge bandage on the top of her left leg “hoping that nothing happens”. Before this US Open 2020, Osaka had twice reached the quarter-finals in Grand Slams, both times she had finally won the title. In total, she won three tournaments in addition to the two Majors, all on hard (Indian Wells 2018, Osaka and Beijing 2019).
