Naomi Osaka books quarter-final date with American Shelby Rogers


Naomi Osaka has booked her third Grand Slam quarter-final at the US Open Sunday night, dismissing No. 14 seed Anett Kontaveit, 6-3, 6-4.

It was her second US Open quarterfinals and now faces unseeded American Shelby Rogers, who beat Czech sixth seed Petra Kvitova.

Osaka, who was the 2018 US Open champion is now the only Top-10 player remaining in the top half of the women’s singles draw.

The No. 4 seed put on another clinical display at the Arthur Ashe Stadium to improve to 4-0 lifetime against Kontaveit, and proceeded to the finish line much quicker than she did one week prior, when the pair played three sets at the Western and Southern Open
