Iga Suatek beats Naomi Osaka 6-4 6-0 to win Miami Open final

Iga Suatek seals Miami Open title success by defeating Naomi Osaka 6-4, 6-0

Poland’s Iga Suatek kept her remarkable run intact in Saturday’s 6-4 6-0 win over Naomi Osaka of Japan in the final of the Miami Open.

The Polish second seed, who will occupy the world number one position next week, has not dropped a single set in Miami and has now won 17 matches in a row in his championship race at the Qatar Open in February.

With the win, the 20-year-old Sweattech became only the fourth woman to win the Indian Wells and Miami tournaments in a row, known as the “Sunshine Double” due to their respective tournament positions in California and Florida.

The two players did not waste time in the heat of battle as the match began with a wild Seven-Davis opening game, in which four-time Grand Slam champion Osaka saved two break points and dropped four aces to hold the serve.

The match was in the survey until Sweettech broke Osaka when he led a great crosscourt backhand winner 3-2 and then closed the first set without facing a break point despite serving under 40 percent.

The former French Open champion raised his level in the second, breaking Osaka three times to run a 5-0 lead and not have to look back as he sealed the 79-minute match at his first championship point when Osaka sent a forehand wide.

Sweettech became the first woman to complete the “Sunshine Double” since Victoria Azarenka in 2016. Kim Clusters (2005) and Steffi Graf (1994, 1996) are other women who have accomplished this feat.

Medvedev could miss the French Open after surgery

World No. 2 Daniel Medvedev will undergo surgery on his hernia after expressing a suspicion for the French Open.

The 26-year-old Russian, who missed a chance to return to the top of the world rankings after losing to Hubert Hurcaz in the quarter-finals of the Miami Open last week, could be ruled out for two months. The French Open starts on 22 May.

“I’ve been playing with a small hernia for the last few months,” Medvedev said on social media on Saturday.

“Together with my team I have decided to complete a small approach to problem solving.

“I will probably be out for the next one to two months and work hard to get back to court soon. Thanks for all the support. “

Medvedev, who won the US Open last September and reached the final of this year’s Australian Open, was number one in the world for three weeks in February before Novak Djokovic regained the top spot.
