From there, it was one-way traffic for Osaka as Svitolina’s normally-solid game started to break down. Osaka reeled off five games in a row before the Ukrainian got on the scoreboard at 5-1, and then served out the match with ease to seal her spot into the Melbourne semifinals.
“I played against her maybe four or five times already, so I knew what to expect,” Svitolina said of Osaka’s game. “When I cannot do 100%… she’s a top player, and when you give her this chance, obviously she gonna take it. All the top players are gonna take it.
“It’s very disappointing that I couldn’t do it today, and I couldn’t give extra today to match her level. So that’s why, you know, she did well today.”
