HIGHLIGHTS

World No.3 Naomi Osaka has sailed smoothly into the semi-finals of the Australian Open 2021 after a 6-2, 6-2 commanding win against Hsieh Su-we at the Rod Laver Arena, on Tuesday.

Third seed Osaka attacked Hsieh's weak serve and the Taiwanese giant-killer quickly wilted under the pressure of her Grand Slam quarter-final debut on a warm and muggy day at Rod Laver Arena.

Osaka scrambled superbly to chase down the improbable angles conjured by her opponent's double-handed, double-sided game, and she raced through the final set, sealing the win on the third match point when an overwhelmed Hsieh pushed a defensive shot long.

Osaka, the 2019 champion, will meet the winner of Serena Williams and Simona Halep for a place in the final.
