Naomi Osaka Floats On To Another Slam Final

Naomi Osaka played Karolina Pliskova in the Australian Open semifinals on Wednesday night.

It was gripping tennis, too, at least for anyone who likes seeing the fuzz get thumped off the ball.

Both players were pummeling their first serves—Osaka had 15 aces—and sinking their teeth into each other’s second serves on the returns.

Osaka and Pliskova both play to kill, and if that sweeping observation doesn’t satisfy you, the numbers offer testimony to just how brutal they were in their approach.

There were 181 total points in this match, and 76, or 42 percent, ended on winners.

Osaka would hold, then break, and then hold serve through the rest of the match to win.

That earned her a spot in the final, where she’ll play No.

5 seed Petra Kvitova.
