Comfortable Australian Open starts for Nadal, Williams

Tennis: Naomi Osaka tweets picture of Serena Williams, calls her `mom` Naomi Osaka Called Serena Williams Her "Mom" on Instagram, So Can I Also Be Adopted?

Focused exclusively on herself, reigning champion Naomi Osaka has laughed off suggestions she's been "monitoring" Ashleigh Barty's pre-Australian Open form. The 22-year-old tennis player recently posted on her Instagram page a photo of the two of them sitting side-by-side on the courtside.

It was what she did after the match, however, that earned her widespread acclaim.

Australia has provided a happy hunting ground for Williams, with seven of her 23 major titles coming at Melbourne Park, including her last in 2017 when she beat sister Venus in the final and later announced she was pregnant.

But then she left Roland Garros in the third round and Wimbledon in the first round, while her defense of her US Open crown fell the same way. But I think every year I get more comfortable on the tour, so hopefully that somewhat translates into my matches.

Defending Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka said 2019 was the "toughest year of my life" after the Japanese had plowed through several coaches and suffered a big dip in form.

"Right now I have this feeling of sadness, but I also feel like I have learned so much during this tournament", Osaka said after that loss. Now, she is working with Wim Fissette and the early signs suggest it will be a profitable partnership.

She started off 2020 with a semifinal at the Brisbane International where Karolina Pliskova edged her out but Osaka looks to have given enough warning signals here.

'She's in the finals of Adelaide right now, right?

Naomi and Maria have never played with each other so far.

'Just knowledge, ' the 22-year-old said when asked what she was looking for in the Belgian mentor. That's the ambition and I love that ambition.

"That was really important for me and I just want to build on it", Williams, now ranked ninth in the world, said after triumphing in Auckland on Sunday.

The Spaniard is attempting to match Roger Federer's record 20 Grand Slam singles titles on his least favourite surface, having won in Melbourne just once, back in 2009.

Naomi Osaka's most significant accomplishment of the current season was reaching the semi-finals in Brisbane.

She has, though, reached four major finals - two Wimbledon and two US Opens - since then which, according to Eurosport tennis expert Justine Henin, can not be easily dismissed.
