The tennis players who won the highest rankings reached the final of the WTA-1000 tournament in Miami. And if the place of the 2nd racket of the tournament Iggy ёнwiętek in the decisive match looks quite natural, the success of the Japanese Naomi Osaka can be considered unexpected. The four-time Grand Slam champion and former world number one has not been very successful lately. As a result, in the WTA rankings, Naomi rolled back to the end of the first hundred and at the tournament in Miami not only did not get in the seed, but was among the participants at the last moment after a series of shootings of other tennis players.

This season, before the competition in Miami, Naomi Osaka showed the best result at the WTA-250 tournament in Melbourne – she defeated three rivals, and did not reach the semifinal match with Veronica Kudermetova. And here, in Florida, Osaka finally reached the final, defeating such seeded tennis players as former world number one Angelika Kerber from Germany (13), Australian Open 2022 finalist Daniel Collins (9) and Tokyo Olympic champion Belinda 22 (Benchic) .

Osaka herself says of her return: “Many tell me that I have returned and everything in this spirit. But, to be honest, I don’t have the feeling that I’m going somewhere. I’ve always been such a tennis player. I just played a little. Yes, there were situations when I flew out early, but I always played quality matches. Probably, tennis viewers who don’t watch so often may think so, because I’m not where I think I should be in the rankings. But I don’t think anyone wants to play with me in the first round of any tournament. “

Unlike Naomi, ёнwiętek is having an amazing season. In Adelaide and the Australian Open, the polka reached the semifinals, and since Doha, she has won a series of victories. Taking into account the titles in Qatar, Indian Wells and reaching the finals in Miami, Iga has won 16 games in a row. It should be noted that in the course of the competition in Florida, ёнwiętek booked herself first place in the WTA rankings. Recall, the previous leader of world tennis Ashley Barty announced the end of her career and asked to remove it from all rankings. In general, it is worth noting that previously only 4 tennis players under the age of 21 managed to reach the finals in Indian Wells and Miami in one season. These are Monica Seles, Serena Williams, Martina Hingis and Maria Sharapova. Ёнwiętek was 5th on this list.

Previously, ёнwiętek and Osaka played only once. In the third round of Toronto 2019, Naomi Osaka, being the 2nd seed, defeated the qualifier ёнwiętek – 7: 6, 6: 4.

“I am just happy that Osaka is doing better. I knew she would return to her level, it was only a matter of time. Naomi is a great tennis player. I remember our match with her, after which I felt inspired. I lost, but realized that I needed to work harder and better. Naomi was then the world’s first racket. Now I feel that I am on a different level, that I can compete. Let’s see how it goes. I am looking forward to this match, ”admitted future world number one Iga ёнwiętek.

The tenacious struggle began with the first game on Osaka’s serve. 7 times the score was “straight”, and ёнwiętek earned 2 break points. But the Polish tennis player could not realize these opportunities. In the fifth game, Iggy had new chances on someone else’s serve, and this time she brought the case to a break – 3: 2. As it turned out, this was the decisive moment of the game, then the tennis players kept their serves confidently, including when ёнwiętek submitted to the set – 6: 4 in 53 minutes. The second set had just begun when ёнwiętek immediately made a break and soon took a 5-0 lead. She did not stop there and hung an insulting “lamb” to the opponent – 6: 4, 6: 0 in 1 hour 19 minutes.

So the future first racket of the world Iga ёнwiętek beat the former – Naomi Osaka. Iggy’s series of victories reached 17 matches and 3 WTA-1000 titles in a row! It is difficult to even imagine how even better the Polish tennis player could mark her ascent to the top of the world rankings. Note that for the victory in Miami, Iga will receive $ 1,231,245.
