Venus sets up semi-final clash with Kasatkina
Naomi Osaka of Japan won the women's title 6-3, 6-2 over Russian Daria Kasatkina in a match-up of 20-year-old rising stars. She dropped one set in seven matches.
In the evening session, world No. 44 Osaka broke Pliskova's serve six times in her 78-minute upset on the main stadium court. She also had beaten four former Grand Slam champions on her way to the final: Sloane Stephens, Caroline Wozniacki, Angelique Kerber and Venus Williams.

Just as she is hilarious in her press conferences, so the public got to see first hand the unfiltered Osaka as she giggled her way through her acceptance speech.
Indian Wells champion Naomi Osaka will have little time to celebrate in her first career victory with the Japanese drawing eight-time champion Serena Williams in the first round of next week's Miami Open. "It's a new feeling for me to be this consistent, so I'm just trying to be happy about that".
