It was time for the Naomi Osaka vs Olga Danilovic live stream. But things changed, and this US Open live steam was called off.
The match was canceled because Danilovic had to withdraw for medical reasons. The original article, as first written, follows.
In round one, Osaka found her form in the second set after not being totally on top in the first. That first set was won off of Osaka's first break point of the match, and it was seemingly a wrap after that. Osaka would take seven games in a row, only for Bouzkova to take a game in the second set. The score card, 6-4, 6-1, reflects how Osaka improved round over round.
Danilovic, the world's 145th ranked, has never faced Osaka before. She just beat Alycia Parks (#246) in round 1, 6-3, 7-5. It's hard to bet against Osaka in this matchup.
If anything showed signs of trouble for Osaka, it was her first serve, which only landed 47% of the time. That may have just been a bit of rust to break off, as everything improved over the course of the match.
If Osaka makes more unforced errors, she had 13 in that first set, we may be talking a different tune come Thursday.
