A surprisingly sub par performance from the Aussie Open champ saw her eliminated from this year’s Miami Open winning just 4 games in this match. The second seeded Osaka struggled on her serve. She was handing out break point opportunities like confetti at a wedding.Where do I start? First game of the match Osaka blew a 40-0 lead on her serve to hand the break to her Greek opponent, her serving very lackadaisical. The confident Sakkari blew her opponent away with assure hitting and confident movement. Watch when she was 3-0 up very first point of the fourth game. A miserable set for Osaka going down for a bagle. A much better second set from the Japanese so lets give her some credit. She did break Sakkari in the second game of the second set to love, Sakkari for once wayward with her forehand on first break point. Status quo was restored in the seventh game with Osaka serving leading 4-2. Sakkari’s return straight to the Naomi’s body did the damage enabling the Greek to make the simple backhand winner cross court to break back. She would go on to win the next three games to win the set and match 6-4.
