On Saturday, Naomi Osaka beat Jennifer Brady 6-4, 6-3 to set herself apart. It was her 21st consecutive match win, her 4th Grand Slam title, and her 2nd Australian Open crown. Her 12-0 record at the quarter-finals and beyond in majors is unmatched by anyone else in the Open Era.

We look back on where the final was won and lost, reflect on Osaka’s journey to this point and her place in the game, consider her potential on grass and clay, and discuss what the future might hold for Brady.

There’s also a preview of tomorrow's men’s final between Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev. How can you back against Djokovic in an Australian Open final? But why do we have a feeling for Medvedev?
