Naomi Osaka, one of the most anticipated stars of the Olimpic Games, says goodbye to the Tokyo 2021 women’s singles tournament after the loss in straight sets for 6-1, 6-4 against Czech Marketa Vondrousova, number 42 in the WTA ranking. In the quarterfinals, Vondrousova will meet the winner of the challenge between Badosa and Podoroska.
We have to recall that Osaka, who had withdrawn from the last Roland Garros and had taken a long break for personal reasons, was the last torchbearer to light the Olympic torch in the Opening Ceremony. In the other matches, Garbine Muguruza defeated Alyson Van Uytvanck in straight sets for 6-4 6-1. Belinda Bencic defeated the Roland Garros champions Barbora Krejcikova for 1-6 6-2 6-3.
In the men’s singles, Stefanos Tsitsipas defeated Frances Tafoe 6-3 6-4.
Below the highlights of the match between Naomi Osaka and Marketa Vondrousova.
