This is the first meeting between Naomi Osaka and Petra Kvitova, with the match-winner not only claiming the Australian Open title, but the world number one spot. There are many logical factors to consider; Osaka has dropped three sets to Kvitova’s zero in this tournament, and spent almost two hours longer on court, including her much-harder semi-final with Kvitova’s compatriot Karolina Pliskova. In this final, however, these players' mentalities are all the more important. Kvitova is fighting for the first Grand Slam of her “second career” post-assault, and will surely have a healthy majority of the crowd on her side. Osaka, on the other hand, is all raw talent and heavy expectation. After her maiden title was spoiled somewhat by the controversy surrounding the umpire and Serena Williams, she will be desperate to win a Grand Slam her way, but she is not the underdog here and will have to cope with that.
With no form between them, any prediction of a winner will rest on the personality of these two players. The heart says Kvitova, reclaiming her place at the top of the game from adversary, but the head says Osaka has what it takes to win her second Grand Slam, on her terms. OSAKA IN THREE SETS.
