Naomi Osaka advances to the semi-final.

It was a tough match for Naomi indeed and she fought for every point. On the third set many though it was over for the Haitian-Japanese player when Shuai was leading 4-1, then 5-3, but Naomi made a great comeback and beat her 7-5.

First time I saw Naomi Osaka smash her racket LOL...

That's probably what her Haitian father said to her after the match.
