And then there were two. Naomi Osaka and Victoria Azarenka booked their places in the US Open final with a pair of thrilling Thursday evening victories over Jennifer Brady and Serena Williams respectively. Today’s match would be a repeat of the Western and Southern Open final that was due to be played at Flushing Meadows two weeks ago, though Osaka had to pull out of that one through injury, conceding the title to Azarenka. This could be a classic, and you can follow our guide to watch an Osaka vs Azarenka live stream and catch the 2020 US Open women’s final online from anywhere.
Osaka vs Azarenka: US Open final live stream
Naomi Osaka vs Victoria Azarenka is of course being played at Arthur Ashe Stadium, the US Open’s biggest stage. The match is scheduled to begin at 4pm ET/1pm PT/9pm BST. Full live streaming and TV channel details for the match are below – and you can watch your preferred coverage from anywhere with this 100% risk-free ExpressVPN trial.
It’s poised beautifully, with Osaka and Azarenka sharing an identical head-to-head record. They’ve beaten each other twice each, with Osaka coming out on top in their two most recent meetings.
The Japanese world No. 9 has never lost a Grand Slam final, and she’s the favourite today. Osaka has been playing with a heavily strapped left leg throughout the tournament, and it’s held up so far.
The 2018 US Open champ overcame fellow big-hitter Jennifer Brady in the semi-finals, becoming the first person to take a set from the American at Flushing Meadows. It was Osaka’s 10 victory on the spin, and probably the one she had to fight hardest for.
Azarenka shocked Serena Williams in the other semi, coming back from a 6-1 first set battering to reach her first Grand Slam final in seven years. She’s never tasted victory at the US Open, having lost both the 2012 and 2013 finals, but she’s currently playing some of the best tennis of her career, and there’s nothing that can boost your confidence more than a win over Serena.
It’s an intriguing match-up, with both players currently looking unstoppable, and you can read on as we explain how to watch Naomi Osaka vs Victoria Azarenka online today and get a US Open live stream wherever you are in the world.

ESPN has the rights to live stream tennis in Australia, but you can also tune in to the US Open final for free on SBS Viceland. This means that Aussie viewers can make use of the free SBS On Demand streaming service to tune in.
Osaka vs Azarenka will get underway at 6am AEST on Sunday.
ESPN, meanwhile, is available on pay TV courtesy of Foxtel, which is great news for cord cutters, as Aussie streaming service Kayo Sports includes ESPN coverage in its packages.
