iciHaiti - Tennis : Australian Open, Naomi Osaka qualifies for the 8th finals
Saturday, as part of the Australian Open in Melbourne, it took 3 sets and 1h57 to the Haitian-Japanese Naomi Osaka (21, seeded 4th in the world) to win [5-7, 6-4, 6-1] against Taiwan's Hsieh Su-wei (33, 27th in the world) and qualify for the 8th finals.

Hsieh Su-wei and her atypical style gave sweat to Naomi in the first set, which lost 7 sets to 5 "She hits very differently from other players. We do not really know where she's going to put the ball [...] I was a little overwhelmed," said Naomi before the 2nd Set "I tried to do things that I do not usually do like high balls. If the second set seemed to have started in the same way, Hsieh Su-wei led [2-0] then [4-1] with two shutouts in the following serie, Naomi Osaka, taking the measure of her opponent relying on her striking quality in forehand to make the debreak to 4-2 against her in the second inning and win [6-4].

In the 3rd set Naomi left no chance to the Taiwanese, winning [6-1].

Qualifying for the 8th finals Naomi Osaka will face the Russian Letonne Anastasija Sevastova (28, 12th in the world), a meeting that looks difficult for Naomi, who lost twice in two sets against Latvia the last year.
