Haitian-Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka, 23, has come out victorious once again, winning the 2021 Australian Open, according to Essence.com.
It was her second Australian Open win and her fourth Grand Slam title, making her the first woman in 31 years – the last was Monica Seles – to win four Grand Slams.
Essence said Osaka’s opponent was Jennifer Brady, 25, who was playing in the Australian Open finals for the first time in her career.
The final score was 6-4, 6-3, with the matches taking less than two hours, Essence said.
“Firstly, I want to congratulate Jennifer,” Osaka told reporters afterwards. “We played in the semis of the US Open, so a couple of months ago, and I told anyone that would listen that you were going to be a problem, and I was right.
