Naomi Osaka vs Victoria Azarenka, the 2020 US Open women's final starts at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT today (Saturday, Sept. 12). It's on ESPN.

It's time for the Naomi Osaka vs Victoria Azarenka live stream, delivering the 2020 U.S. Open women's final. It's sure to be a heavy-hitting, hard-fought battle between the players, who are both two-time Grand Slam champions.

For the No. 4 seed Osaka, this year's trophy would be her third major championship in just two years. For Azarenka, it would be her first since 2013 and the culmination of a long journey from her status as a former world No. 1 through a period of injuries to a stunning win over Serena Williams in the semifinals.

Osaka and Azarenka were actually due to meet in the final of the Western & Southern Open just a few weeks ago, but Osaka was forced to withdraw due to a hamstring injury and Azarenka won the title. 

The players are coming from very different backgrounds and on very different paths. Osaka is a young gun who has made a statement during the U.S. Open by wearing Black Lives Matter face masks for every match. Azarenka is a veteran who has been through a bitter custody battle over her child to a return to excellence. Her mental fortitude survived a tough test in her win over Serena, who was attempting once again to tie Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam titles.

If Azarenka prevails over Osaka, she'll become only the fourth woman to win a Grand Slam after having a child.
