- Title : How strong is Osaka now , we must hope for a tinie game here.
Is Naomi Osaka following in the footsteps of Angie Kerber? The German number 1 fended off match points during her triumph in Melbourne 2016 before she was allowed to stretch the trophy into the Australian night sky.
The Japanese could repeat this feat after surviving a real thriller in the round of 16.
In the round of the last eight, she is clearly favored by the best bookmakers and meets the surprise lady down under. It is so difficult to forecast between Su-Wei Hsieh and Naomi Osaka because two completely different types of players clash. The duels between the two so far have been very close and on Tuesday an extremely exciting match at the Happy Slam can be assumed.
BIG BONUS TIP IS OSAKA TO WIN 2 - 1 sets.
Hsieh is always a danger for top 10 players
In round 2 the success against former US Open winner Bianca Andreescu was the final breakthrough. This was followed by a thriller against Sara Errani and the renewed surprise coup against Marketa Vondrousova. After only three measly victories on the tour in 2020, such a run of number 71 in the world was not to be expected.
The Taiwanese player's style of play is unique. She has no powerful basic power strokes with which she shoots her opponents off the field. Hsieh is a gifted counter player who has an incredible tactical understanding and feel for the ball. She plays unorthodox strokes, masters the angle game to perfection and takes the pace of her opponents with her.
Power tennis from Osaka suits the Taiwanese girl
The years of double experience can be clearly seen in her game. These remedies are very effective against power women like Andreescu or Vondrousova, which is why a tip on the outsider between Su-Wei Hsieh and Naomi Osaka cannot be ruled out. The 35-year-old has absolutely nothing to lose and already making it to the quarter-finals is the greatest success of her career.
