Osaka outguns Brady to win Australian Open as Japanese ace picks up 4th Grand Slam title

Naomi Osaka claimed a fourth Grand Slam title as she defeated American underdog Jennifer Brady in straight sets in a battle of two big hitters in the Australian Open final in Melbourne.

Third seed Osaka had too much power for Brady as the Japanese star won 6-4 6-3 on Rod Laver Arena, adding to her Australian Open title of 2019 and pair of US Open titles from 2018 and 2020.

Brady, seeded 22nd and making a maiden appearance in a Grand Slam final, battled well in the first set and also threatened a resurgence in the second, but was ultimately undone by the brutal big-hitting of her 23-year-old rival.
