US Open 2022: Two-time champion Naomi Osaka eliminated by Danielle Collins in the first round

0

Osaka
was
the
unseeded
party
as
she
went
up
against
the
world
number
19,
but
she
appeared
to
have
things
clicking
early
as
she
collected
an
early
break
of
serve
to
rattle
off
the
first
three
games
of
the
match.

But
as
would
be
a
theme
in
the
back-and-forth
contest,
Collins
fought
right
back,
taking
the
next
three
games
to
even
things
up.

Collins’ serve
was
not
sharp
throughout
the
clash

committing
all
nine
of
the
match’s
double
faults

but
she
found
a
couple
of
crucial
first
serves
in
the
tiebreaker
to
come
away
with
the
first
set.

Just
like
the
first
set,
it
was
Osaka
nabbing
the
early
break
in
the
second,
but
that
advantage
was
again
wiped
out
instantly
as
Collins
fought
back
to
level,
before
breaking
again
to
go
up
5-3
with
a
chance
to
serve
it
out.

Osaka
had
two
break
points
in
the
final
game,
but
could
not
extend
the
contest
as
Collins
saved
five
out
of
six
break
opportunities
in
the
second
set,
while
taking
two
of
her
three
chances.


Data
Slam:
Osaka’s
yearly
grand
slam
streak
comes
to
an
end

This
will
be
the
first
year
since
2017
that
Osaka
has
not
won
a
grand
slam,
after
her
two
Australian
Open
victories
in
2019
and
2021
and
two
US
Open
crowns
in
2018
and
2020.

She
has
now
lost
four
matches
in
a
row
for
the
first
time
since
2018,
and
six
of
her
past
seven.
