If US Open victor Naomi Osaka is feeling the pressure of being the tennis world's newest Grand Slam champion, she's hiding it well in the lead-up to the Australian Open. After returning from the maternity leave, Williams made it to the final of the two Grand Slams but could not surpass the final hurdle.

The Romanian bounced back from losing to Wozniacki in an epic Melbourne final 12 months ago to claim her own maiden Slam at Roland Garros and climb back to number one despite a nagging back injury that forced the 27-year-old to miss the WTA Finals in Singapore.

The women's draw looks more open even with Serena Williams, the most dominant force in the sport, back and chasing a 24th grand slam singles title to tie Margaret Court's all-time record. In that match, Williams infamously got into a verbal argument with umpire Carlos Ramos over his calls and his biases, while Osaka, a worthy champion, was booed and reduced to tears at the podium when she accepted the title.

"There's no doubt that was a negative but there's no doubt that also previous year when you look at the bigger picture, the fact that she came back from having a child she was really nowhere near 100 percent and she still made the finals of Wimbledon and the US Open was incredible".

"Osaka shines" The 21-year-old Osaka backed up her US Open win by riding a wave of fanatical home support to reach the final of the Pan-Pacific Open in Tokyo without dropping a set. "The women have to think she was 60-70 per cent previous year reaching when two finals".

"But also there's no doubt previous year, when you look at bigger picture, she came back from having a child, really nowhere near one hundred per cent fit, and she still managed to make the finals of Wimbledon and the US Open, which was incredible". "I never feel pressure to perform".

Caroline Wozniacki is also looking to defend her title after winning her first career major at this event previous year. "I'm trying to change it more, and I think I have". It was her 23rd Grand Slam championship.

Second-ranked Angelique Kerber has already indicated her priority for 2019 will be the French Open, the only Slam to elude the 30-year-old German in her career.
