The No. four seed and 2018 champion overcame an impressed assault from Azarenka within the opening set to win her third profession Grand Slam crown after one hour and 53 minutes on Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Recalling the variations between Sunday’s win and her first in 2018, after the match, Osaka mentioned she is “extra of an entire participant” now.
“I really feel like two years in the past, I possibly would have folded being down a set and a break. However I feel, all of the matches that I performed in between that point formed me and made me or pressured me to mature extra. Particularly all of the matches that I’ve performed right here had been very robust,” US Open’s official web site quoted Osaka as saying.
“I feel positively I am extra of an entire participant now. I really feel like I am extra conscious of what I am doing,” she had added.
Osaka is now the primary Asian participant to win three Grand Slam singles titles, breaking the tie she held with China’s Li Na.
