ProWorld’s Naomi Osaka is the first champion at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global, ousting Caroline Garcia in the WTA Rising Stars Invitational final.
Many of you knew her as the talented up-and-comer who stunned Sam Stosur in the first round of the Bank Of The West Classic in Stanford last summer, but there’s another reason to keep an eye on Japan’s Naomi Osaka now – she’s this year’s WTA Rising Stars Invitational champion.
Osaka, who just turned 18 years old a week ago, held her nerve through a very tense finish to the second set to stun heavy favorite Caroline Garcia in the final on Sunday afternoon, 3-5, 5-4(6), 4-1.
The No.35-ranked Garcia is the second-highest-ranked player Osaka has beaten in her blossoming career after the aforementioned win over Stosur – the Australian was ranked No.19 at the time.
