The dust has settled in Tokyo and Beijing and the champions have been crowned. Let’s have a look at some of the important numbers from the week that was in tennis.

10: Number of consecutive wins now notched by Naomi Osaka. The 21-year-old took out Ashleigh Barty in three sets to claim the China Open title on Sunday—it was the fifth of her career.

4: Number of titles won in 2019 by Dominic Thiem. The Austrian, who defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in three sets on Sunday in Beijing, is now tied with Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal for the ATP title lead in 2019.

76: Novak Djokovic claims his 76th career title by winning the Tokyo title on his debut. Djokovic is now one title shy of John McEnroe for fifth on the ATP’s all-time title list.
