'A great ambassador for the sport of tennis'


//

Naomi Osaka has been roundly praised by the tennis world after winning her second career Grand Slam tournament.

Osaka prevailed in a thrilling three-set encounter with eighth seed Petra Kvitova to win her first Australian Open, moving the 21-year-old to the top of the world rankings.

The Japanese star was subjected to controversy after her maiden Grand Slam triumph at last year's US Open, as fans mourned the fact that she could not celebrate the win, but Osaka admitted she was in shock after being showered in adulation by the capacity crowd.

However, the reaction to her stunning 7-6 5-7 6-4 win was not limited to those inside Rod Laver Arena, with Osaka's win sparking widespread reaction all over the world.
