Japan's Naomi Osaka cemented her place as the outstanding star of the women's game by beating American Jennifer Brady in the Australian Open tennis final to win her fourth Grand Slam title in Melbourne yesterday.

She won 6-4, 6-3.

Osaka has now won two Australian Open titles with her other Grand Slam successes coming at the US Open in 2018 and 2020.

Osaka's face lit up with a wide grin, raising her racquet above her head, when she clinched the title on her first match point after Brady pumped a return long. (BBC)
