Osaka won the title in her hometown at the Toray Pan Pacific Open after defeating Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-2 and 6-3 in the final.

The Japanese played at the tournament almost flawlessly. On the way to the final she knocked out Tomova, Putintseva and Mertens without losing the set. In the finals, Pavlyuchenková awaited her, with whom she had a H2H record of 1-1.
Despite the fact that Pavlyuchenkova defeated names like Yastremska, Bertens or Kerber, she was not good enough for the home player in the final. Osaka dictated the pace of the game since the start of the match, winning the first set 6-2 and the second 6-3. Osaka did not face any break ball during the whole match and won 100% points after the first service.
For Naomi, this is the second title this year, after winning the Australian Open. Thus, she adjusted her record to 33-11 and improved her position in WTA Race ranking to qualify for the WTA Finals.
