Naomi Osaka defeated Jennifer Brady 6-4, 6-3 while Novak Djokovic defeated Daniil Medvedev 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 to take home the 2021 Women’s and Men’s singles titles. Each was impressive in their championship match performances.
Osaka won her fourth major title and second in a row having captured the 2020 US Open championship in the Fall. On Saturday, she dominated the American in all aspects of the match despite a valiant effort in the first set by Brady. The match was on Osaka’s racquet throughout and tilted heavily in her favor after she broke Brady late in the first set.
With Brady serving at 4-5 in the opening set, Osaka would break to close out the set and then roll off the first four games of the second set.
Trailing 4-0, Brady would attempt to fight back but the deficit was too much, and she fell in straight sets.
With the title, Osaka strengthened her grand slam record where she is 4-0 in major finals. And although she won the title in Melbourne in 2019, this one felt a little different to her.
