DINISPATSA ni Japanese tennis superstar Naomi Osaka si Victoria Azarenka ng Belarus, 1-6, 6-3, 6-3, upang magkampeon sa 140th US Open women’s singles nitong Linggo (Manila time) sa Arthur Ashe Stadium, New York City.
Ito ang ikalawang US Open title ng 22-year-old,. 5-foot-11 netter at ikatlo naman sa Grand Slam. Siya rin ang namayagpag sa 2019 French Open.
Dinomina ng 31-anyos na Belarusian ang opening set, pero umahon sa sumunod ang Haponesa na sinustena para magtagumpay at kopoin ang $3M (P145M).
“It was a really tough match, but inspiring, as I used to watch Vika when I was young. I thought it would be very embarrassing to lose in under an hour, so I had to stop having a bad attitude. And the point of [her seven face masks] was to make people start talking,” lahad ni Osaka. (Janiel Abby Toralba)
