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 stated she is “more of a complete player” now.
“I feel like two years ago, I maybe would have folded being down a set and a break. But I think, all the matches that I played in between that time shaped me and made me or forced me to mature more. Especially all the matches that I’ve played here were very tough,” US Open’s official web site quoted Osaka as saying.
“I think definitely I’m more of a complete player now. I feel like I’m more aware of what I’m 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.
