Naomi Osaka eased to a straight-sets victory over Daria Kasatkina to claim her maiden title at the Indian Wells Masters on Sunday. Kasatkina, who won her only career title in Charleston previous year and reached the final in Dubai last month, had the edge in big-match experience.
Osaka needed just 70 minutes to dispatch No. 19 Kasatkina, who had an equally impressive showing in the desert. And for Kasatkina, she was riding high off of wins over Caroline Wozniacki, Angelique Kerber, and Venus Williams.
The rising star from Japan won nine of her last 11 games against a fellow 20-year-old in Kasatkina, overpowering her in the return game and holding a 5-2 edge in aces to win in almost 71 minutes.
She earned $1,340,860 for the victory, almost double her career winnings of $1,483,053.
Kasatkina broke in the opening game of the match after successive forehand errors from Osaka, but a fine forehand victor in the next game put the match back on serve. She's hitting her forehand, backhand.

"But during the match, she was able to manage her nerves and stuff, and I was still a little bit tight during the match". Bajin specialises in staying positive and fighting for every point, which is Osaka's primary motive to making her game effective.
