Osaka says poor attitude cost her Brisbane semifinal

Last year's finalist Nishikori, who prevailed 6-4 3-6 6-2, won 70 percent of points on his first serve and converted five out of 15 break point opportunities to snap a nine-match losing streak in finals.
The unseeded Tsurenko looked headed for the biggest win of her career when serving for the match at 5-4 in the second set, only for Pliskova to come storming back to win 4-6,7-5, 6-2 and claim her second Brisbane title.
Tsurenko will at least have the opportunity to seal swift revenge, with the duo paired in the Sydney International first round next week as they gear up for the Australian Open. "For me, the key was to stay aggressive and to serve well, to give good direction on each serve", Tsurenko said on-court after the match.
Osaka admitted post-match in Brisbane that she needed to work on keeping her emotions in check when things aren't going well on the court.

But in the end, the experience and athleticism of Kerber proved just enough to seal the match, 7-6 (6), with a final victor . Zverev said as those inside the stadium roared with laughter. "Especially you [Roger].
"Great final today, I lost to him previous year in the final in Japan, so I'm happy to get revenge today", Nishikori added.
But Osaka said Saturday's loss was probably a better learning experience than if she had made the final.
"I don't know what really changed at 5-4", Tsurenko said.
But the 2017 Brisbane champion said she preferred that to being the underdog. "So I think like that was sort of my main problem today".
"So, I don't know, I was sulking a little bit, and there are moments that I tried not to do that".
With play having been delayed two days earlier, both Sabalenka and Riske had to win semifinal matches earlier in the day to set up the final, Riske's third in the event.
