She dug her way out the first two deficits with aggressive, gutsy play, but in the final game, serving to stay in the match, she couldn't pull it off. Sabalenka double-faulted on Osaka's fourth match point, handing the Japanese player the win. So this time I went straight to the net. Now it's like business again.

On Monday, she faced off against red-hot No. 26 seed Aryna Sabalenka - who arrived at the US Open having just won her first career title at the US Open Series event in New Haven - in a match many tennis experts circled as one for the future of the women's game.

Osaka, who won the Indian Wells Masters tournament in March, fired nine aces and produced 32 unforced errors, 10 fewer than her Belarussian opponent, in a gusty defensive performance.

Osaka, the daughter of a Japanese mother and Haitian father, said she enjoyed playing in the blistering heat of NY which has been such a talking point of the tournament. "The heart, I think, needs dreams every day of the life".

"I hate matches like this", an embarrassed Tsurenko said.

It was supposed to be a light-hearted bit of fun, and Kim was happy to come on the show, for which she received a decent fee. I'm never happier than when I'm with the awesome people who have supported me through 50 years of being 'The Loose Nolan!'.

"Just, like, my entire body was shaking, so I'm really glad I was able to play well today", she said. I woke up with a viral illness, or whatever it is. I'm not breathing well.

Osaka will play American Madison Keys or Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro in the last four.

Schiavone used that championship at Roland Garros to launch herself to a career-high singles ranking of World No.4 in January of 2011, making her the first Italian to reach the Top 5 of the WTA singles rankings. The Japanese player said: 'Like, seeing Kei (Nishikori) do really well in Wimbledon, that really inspired me.

In many ways, Osaka came into this tournament under the radar after winning just one match in the U.S. hard court summer, but she's been locked in and determined to prove herself on the biggest stage this time around.
