Naomi Osaka Tersingkir di Babak Pertama Australian Open

MELBOURNE, Jan 16 (News on Japan) - Mantan petenis nomor satu dunia Naomi Osaka kembali tampil di tenis Grand Slam di Australian Open setelah melahirkan anak pertamanya Juli lalu, namun harus tersingkir dengan kekalahan langsung dari petenis Prancis Caroline Garcia, yang berada di peringkat 19 dunia.

Ini adalah penampilan Grand Slam pertama Osaka sejak US Open 2022, dengan menunjukkan kekuatan khasnya melalui servis yang kuat sejak awal set pertama. Namun, ia mematahkan servis pada game kelima karena kesalahan sendiri, sehingga kehilangan set 4 dan 6.

Pada set kedua, Osaka terus membangun permainannya dengan mengandalkan servisnya dan mencetak angka dengan pukulan forehand pada poin-poin krusial, namun Garcia mampu mengimbangi intensitasnya yang berujung pada tiebreak. Osaka memimpin dengan sebuah service ace, namun ia tidak dapat mempertahankan momentum dan akhirnya dikalahkan oleh Garcia, kehilangan tiebreak 6-7 dan set tersebut.
