Naomi Osaka lived up to her name capturing the title in her birth city of Osaka Sunday beating Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-2, 6-3.

The title was her first and first final since her Australian Open victory at the start of the season. Overall, the 21-year-old has six career WTA titles, Osaka being the smallest among her 2 Grand Slams and Indian Wells but her first in Japan.

“I just wanted to win this really bad,” the world No. 4 said. “I think what I learned from this tournament is just to focus every point, and just to have really positive energy.”

Osaka didn’t face a break point nor drop a point on her first serve.

She beat Yulia Putintseva in the quarters and Elise Mertens in the semis, and didn’t drop a set during the event.
