US Open 2021: Naomi Osaka vs Marie Bouzkova Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 US Open as Naomi Osaka takes on Marie Bouzkova in the Round of 128 on Monday, August 30th, 2021.

Will Naomi Osaka go through? Will Marie Bouzkova pull off the upset? This match will be an interesting one, where we will see where Osaka’s level is at and whether or not she can defend her US Open title. Who will move on to the Round of 64 at the 2021 US Open?

Naomi Osaka has had a pretty good year, considering she won the Australian Open and reached a career high of world number two. While she has not been playing her best tennis since then, she also hasn’t been playing too much tennis anyway. Now she is back at her most successful grand slam to try and defend her title, she will begin her campaign against Marie Bouzkova, she is the very heavy favorite to go through rather easily and kick off the run here in 2021 off to a great start. She’s been facing some mental blocks as of late, with most of those problems being off-court related, however, she seems to be regaining her focus and she is ready to take her powerful groundstrokes to court and play that aggressive tennis we know she can and loves to play here at the 2021 US Open.

Marie Bouzkova has not been playing too well in the last few months, hardly winning matches in singles. If she hopes to take on one of the best tennis players in the world in Naomi Osaka and possibly the favorite to win this tournament, she will have to play some really inspirational tennis higher than the highest level she could imagine playing. She could also potentially hope for a mental slip from Osaka, however, that’s too much to hope for and will most likely not happen, and even if it does, Osaka will remain the favorite to take the match rather easily. Bouzkova doesn’t really have much of a shot in my eyes, so I think she will just have to go out there and go for everything, play some super aggressive tennis to try and stand a chance at the 2021 US Open.

Naomi Osaka and Marie Bouzkova have met once before, with Naomis Osaka leading the head to head 1-0. Their one meeting was also at a hard court grand slam, down under last year where Osaka won in an easy straight sets. I suspect a similar fate for Bouzkova here, with Osaka still playing some mainline tennis despite a few struggles in the past few months, but I do think she’ll be able to regroup nicely and play some good tennis to at the very least make a deep run in her attempt to defend her title and claim a 4th grand slam overall in her bid here at the 2021 US Open.
