“It was tough for me trying to control my nerves”: Naomi Osaka after beating Bouzkova

On Monday, the 20th of January, on the year’s first Grand Slam morning, it remained dry over the Melbourne Park while storms were expected, as the defending Champion Naomi Osaka took on Marie Bouzkova to cement her way in to the second round.

Although Naomi Osaka, the Japanese aggressive baseliner, has beaten the Czeck 21-year-old Marie Bouzkova 6-2, 6-4 with 8 Aces and 4 Break Points to get her Australian Open 2020 campaign up and running, it had been miles away from a top of the form performance for the Japanese relentless, but could be contemplated as a solid beginning to hold forth.

Nonetheless, round one had been more or less a convincing win for the 22-year-old, third seed Naomi Osaka, the first Asian to hold the top ranking in singles’, however, shortly after the match, in customary goodwill gesture, Osaka said on the court, “It was tough for me trying to control my nerves.

” Aside from that, in the brief post-match interview on Monday (January 20th) morning in Melbourne, the storm-borne from the far-eastern Asia, Naomi Osaka, long-adored for her raw power in particular on her forehand returns and blazing serves, had thanked the crowd for showing up.
