#AusOpen: US Open champion, Osaka reaches back-to-back Grand Slam final

The Japanese fourth seed secured a hard-fought win over Czech seventh seed Karolina Pliskova in their semifinal clash in Melbourne.

Osaka won 6-2 4-6 6-4 and will face Petra Kvitova, another Czech, in Saturday’s final.

“I kind of expected it a little because I’ve played her so many times and she has beaten me more than I’ve beaten her. I told myself to regroup and I managed to win.

“It’s just experience playing matches like this. I was so scared serving second serves, I was like ‘oh, my god, please’ and somehow I made it so I guess that’s experience,” the 22-year old said.
