The Japanese star advanced to the second round without much difficulties beating Bouzkova in straight sets 6-4 6-1. Yet, Osaka didn’t play her best tennis at the start of the game, she had trouble with her first service, landing just 47%. However, she managed to overcome the situation and improve everything else throughout the course of the match. After Osaka’s first break point of the match, Bouzkova took seven games in a row until managing to win her only game of the second set.
