The matchup worthy of a final 

Next year maybe, after Serena gets her level back up higher.

Must be nice to be Naomi Osaka at the moment though.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Well done to Osaka for beating her idol!

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Wow, Osaka has steamrolled at least three former world number ones so far this month (Serena, the Russian doper, and the runner up in Indian Wells). In the groove!

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Shes such a good player with an awesome attitude go Naomi!

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Quote: "The 20-year-old Osaka, who earned her first career title Sunday at Indian Wells, said she was nervous at the start playing her idol for the first time. "

Pretty sure they played each other at Wimbledon nine months ago.

Oh, must have been Venus!

Good job, but remember her opponent is playing on 36-year-old legs. 16-year difference in age is huge in tennis -- experience and skill will only get you so far if your legs won't do what your brains says...

1 ( +2 / -1 )

I think having had and raised a baby for the last 16 months might have more to do with it than age.

1 ( +1 / -0 )
