Who is Danielle Collins? Everything you need to know about Naomi Osaka's 2022 US Open opponent

Four-time Grand Slam champion and two-time US Open winner Naomi Osaka returns to New York this week for her first-round US Open clash with Danielle Collins.

Osaka's 2022 season has been filled with interruptions and frustrations, following up a first-round exit at Roland-Garros by missing the 2022 Wimbledon Championships in the UK.

The Japanese tennis sensation now returns to the court in time for the US Open and will face home hero Danielle Collins. Here is everything you need to know about her opponent.

Who is Danielle Collins?

Danielle Collins may have made her US Open debut back in 2014, but only since 2018 has she been a regular on the Grand Slam.

The 28-year-old American reached her first Grand Slam final earlier this year when she lost to the now-retired Ashleigh Barty in straight sets at the Australian Open.

The world No.19 has struggled to replicate the form displayed at the Australian Open and in previous title wins at Palermo and San Jose though, suffering a second-round exit at the French Open and a first-round exit at Wimbledon.

Where to watch Naomi Osaka vs Danielle Collins

British tennis fans will be able to watch the 2022 US Open Grand Slam via Amazon Prime Video, with the streaming platform serving as the UK's exclusive broadcaster this summer.

For US tennis fans, ESPN is the place to go in order to watch this summer's US Open matches.
