Serena Williams vs Naomi Osaka betting preview

Serena will be looking to avenge her Wimbledon final defeat from earlier in the summer

Serena Williams is playing for her 24th Grand Slam singles title, which would tie Margaret Court's all-time record.  In the entire tournament, Serena Williams has only lost one set. Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka have met just once before, with the latter winning earlier this year in Miami in straight sets (6-3, 6-2). It was Williams’ second tournament and only her fourth match into her comeback.

The American only returned to action in March after more than a year out on maternity leave. She reached the fourth round of the French Open and finished runner-up at Wimbledon, but outside of that she hasn’t really hit top stride. A big question mark for Serena in this tournament was regarding her fitness but she has managed to silence many doubters as she looked very fresh and fit in the semifinal. Aside from a chance to win her 24th Grand Slam tournament and tie Margaret Court for the all-time record, she will also be motivated not to lose back to back encounters against the Japanese, and not to lose a second-straight Grand Slam final, after her Wimbledon defeat at the hands of Angelique Kerber.

Naomi Osaka is a 20-year-old appearing in her maiden Grand Slam final

Naomi Osaka, is the first Japanese woman to play in a major final in the Open Era. The 20-year-old beat Madison Keys to reach the US Open showpiece, a surprising result given that she came into the US Open on the back of first-round losses at the Cincinnati Masters and a semifinal exit at the Rogers Cup. The Japanese ace reached the third round here last year. In this year's Grand Slam tournaments, Naomi Osaka reached the last 16 of the Australian Open and round three at Roland Garros and Wimbledon. The big standout moment of 2018 so far is her Indian Wells Masters title, her only WTA Tour triumph so far.

Osaka is a power-hitter and someone who isn’t afraid to go for her shots to finish a point early. Furthermore, the world No. 20 has found defensive brilliance and looks capable of causing an upset. She will to get the ball back into play as much as possible and she needs to move Williams around the court, just like Kerber did in the Wimbledon final. Her mental fortitude against Keys was also encouraging with Osaka saving every break point she faced.
