Naomi Osaka extended her win-streak to 10 consecutive matches since the US Open, defeating World No.1 Ashleigh Barty 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 to win the China Open. The title is Osaka's third of the season and fifth of her career, paving the way for a resurgent fall as the reigning Australian Open champion eyes her final event at the Shiseido WTA Finals Shenzhen in three weeks.

Osaka joins the podcast to reflect on the key to winning her second Premier Mandatory title, which included tough wins over Barty and US Open Champion Bianca Andreescu, and how some soul-searching after a disappointing summer has steeled her resolve.
