Defending champion Naomi Osaka advances to the second round of the 2021 US Open

Japan’s Naomi Osaka, defending champion, extended her streak of consecutive victories to 16 on Monday, beating Czech Marie Bouzkova 6-4, 6-1 in the first round of the US Open.

Osakaa, 23, will face Serbian Olga Danilovic in the second round, who earlier beat local Alycia Parks 6-3, 7-5.

The Japanese star is looking to become the first player to win the US Open twice in a row since Serena Williams was crowned for the third year in a row in 2014.

Osaka’s winning streak includes his most recent victories at the US and Australian Open and one in the first round at this year’s French Open before withdrawing from this tournament due to mental health issues. (AP)
