Naomi Osaka vs. Sofia Kenin Prediction
Seeing this match, I am going to pick Naomi Osaka to win. Sofia Kenin has been in extraordinary touch yet I don’t see her being at the level where she can beat Osaka when the Japanese player is in acceptable structure. Naomi Osaka looked exceptionally strong during her past match and I see her being sufficient to win this challenge and verify a spot in the quarterfinals.
Pick: Naomi Osaka
