Naomi Osaka wins Australian Open for her second straight grand slam

Naomi Osaka captured her second straight grand slam by winning the 2019 Australian Open.

Tennis: Australian Open Presse Sports-USA TODAY Sports

Naomi Osaka has won her second Grand Slam title, and it came right after her first one. She bested Petra Kvitova in the women’s singles finals of the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of 2019, just a few months after beating Serena Williams in the final of the 2018 US Open.


The women’s bracket at the 2019 Australian Open, the first Grand Slam event of the year, is down to two players: fourth seed Naomi Osaka and eighth seed Petra Kvitova, after all the other big names, including Serena Williams, Simona Halep, Caroline Wozniacki and the rest of the field were eliminated.

Osaka’s run has included wins over Magda Linette, Tamara Zidansek, Su-Wei Hsieh, Anastasija Sevastova, Elina Svitolina and most recently, Karolina Pliskova.

Kvitova has looked in top form and looks nearly unstoppable right now. Her run has included wins over Magdalena Rybarikova, Irina-Camelia Begu, Belinda Bencic, Amanda Anisimova, Ashleigh Barty and Danielle Collins.

Kvitova has won all of her matches in straight sets, while Osaka has been pushed to three sets three times, including against Pliskova in the semifinals.

Below is a full bracket, schedule, and results, which will be updated throughout the tournament.

Viewing information

The schedule for the Australian Open is very similar to how it’s been in recent years. For those in the United States, it can be a tricky major to follow, with matches beginning in the late evening and running until the morning of the following day. Unless stated otherwise, times ascribed to dates in the evening which end in the morning are ending the following day.

Through the first three rounds, play will begin around 7 p.m. ET on one day and will end around 7 a.m. the following day. “Monday” at the Australian Open is Monday proper for those in Melbourne, but begins on Sunday evening for those in the United States, with play wrapping up on Monday morning.

ESPN will handle the bulk of television and live streaming coverage of the event. Unfortunately, all courts are no longer free on WatchESPN, with some courts and matches (including doubles finals) locked behind a subscription to ESPN+, a seven-day free trial of which can be found here.
