Naomi Osaka vs Madison Brengle: Prediction
Naomi will come into the tie with a career hardcourt record of 160-72 and was 16-4 on the surface last season while finishing the 2021 season with a record of 18-6 across all surfaces. Madison will take the court with a career hardcourt record of 311-216 and was 18-13 on the surface last season and had a 36-25 record for the season across all surfaces.
Looking at these numbers and considering their form in the 2021 and the little of the 2022 season, Naomi does look the favourite for the clash but given Madison’s 1st round match, she can certainly fight back and take her opponents to the rope and will certainly look to do it to Osaka as well. The Japanese should however prevail.
Prediction: Naomi Osaka to win in 3-sets.
