Amanda Anisimova defeat Naomi Osaka 7-5, 6-4 in 1 hour and 30 minutes, taking the former World No.1 out of a second major tournament this year.

Though not as close as the Melbourne fare, it was tightly contested all the way. Anisimova managed to keep herself in the lead for the most part.

Osaka ends her clay swing with a 1-2 record, having played only two tournaments after an ankle injury forced her to withdraw from Rome.
