Osaka overcomes nervousness to win for the first time in a long time at Melbourne

Naomi Osaka overcame a second-set stutter to win her first match since taking an extended hiatus following her heartbreaking US Open defeat in September. Osaka overcomes nervousness to win for the first time in a long time at Melbourne Summer Set Tournament.

The four-time Grand Slam champion, who has dropped to 13 in the rankings, revealed after her third-round loss at Flushing Meadow that she was emotionally “coping with some problems.”

At the Melbourne Summer Set tournament, the Japanese superstar made the first step toward that aim by defeating France’s 61st-ranked veteran Alize Cornet 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 on Rod Laver Arena.

“It always feel really good to come back here,” Osaka told the crowd in her on-court interview. “It feels really nice to play in front of people.

“I feel like I made a lot of unforced errors, but I kind of expected that because it is my first match and I was really nervous,” she said.

“I’m just so glad I was able to hold my serve in that last game”, she added.
