Defending Champion Osaka needed only 68mins to get the defense of her Australian Open underway with a 6-3 6-3 win over Camila Osorio on Rod Laver Arena.

After the Match, Osaka said,
“It always feels special for me to come back here,” the two-time Australian Open winner said. “I played the warm-up tournament before the Grand Slam and I have a lot of really good memories here. It feels really nice to start the year in this tournament.

“I think I played really well in the circumstances. I didn’t really have any information on my opponent but I thought she played amazingly. She was fighting for every point and I think that was a really good quality. I’m sure we’re going to see her on this court pretty frequently. Overall I’m just really happy to be here.

“I really like hot conditions but I feel like every time I come here everyone is warm and welcoming. The crowd are all really nice so I’m sure that has an effect on me.”

The victory secure her passage into the second round of the tournament as she plans to retain her title.
