When we look about the Osaka draw, it is harder than ever. Maybe harder than AO 2021 (honestly, Oldrena and Brady with all my respect aren't the strongest opponents in the SF/F stages of a GS) 3R : Fernandez (tricky lefty defender. Osaka lost to Teichmann and Vondrousova recently) 4R : Stephens (former GS champion. Hellish defender.

The nuance about Osaka's game is, whereas she's the clear #1 on hardcourts, she's not even top 10 on clay, and maybe top 10 (but if so just on the fringes) on grass. There are worse players on both surfaces than Osaka who have managed bigger successes, but they have committed to the respective surface in a way Osaka clearly has not.
