With this result, Osaka returns to world no.2 for the first time since September 2019, while Brady will be # 13. The Japanese is the seventh to win the Slam downunder after saving match points. This is the seventh tournament she won in her career out of 10 finals played.
Osaka is the first since Monica Seles to win the first four Grand Slams played, the fifteenth in the Open Era to win at least four Grand Slams. "I already said in New York that Jennifer would be a problem for everyone, I know you are working very hard, I think we will face each other many more times.
This trophy is for my team, we have spent a lot of time together during these weeks. Thanks also to the public, because having you here gave me great energy after playing the previous Grand Final behind closed doors," said Naomi at the end of the match.
