French Open 2019: Naomi Osaka's roller-coaster win in Round 1 is testament to her growing maturity and mental fortitude

In the first set, Osaka was broken thrice in quick succession, served up a bagel by a player who had not won a match at Roland Garros since 2014. She was not great on movement early on, and missed some easy returns planted firmly at the baseline in the first set. However, she turned it around in the next two sets to mark a memorable win.
