Osaka, who looked sluggish throughout the match, gave up the first five games at the Edgbaston Priory Club and sat dejectedly on the court rather than take her regular seat after the first set.

Osaka admitted ahead of her first grass-court tournament of the season that she is still not at home on the surface and it showed as Putintseva romped to a 6-2, 6-3 win.

Osaka, meanwhile, has slumped to a second straight early exit from a tournament, after losing in the third round of the French Open to unseeded Katerina Siniakova from the Czech Republic.

World number one Naomi Osaka slipped to a 6-2, 6-3 defeat against Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva as French Open champion Ashleigh Barty cruised past Jennifer Brady 6-3, 6-1 in the second round of the Birmingham Classic.

Ash faces Venus Williams at 11pm tonight AEST for a spot in the final four of the Birmingham Classic. "I was more aggressive and changed the rhythm; that helped me win the match", said Putintseva.

The Kazakh beat Osaka in their only previous meeting past year at the Hobart International - before the Japanese star went on to win the US Open and Australian Open titles - and maintained her mastery over the World No.1, sealing the upset after 68 minutes on Ann Jones Centre Court.

"Even though we played previous year before she won so many titles, you could feel her level and how she played".

Barty's reward is a quarter-final showdown with five-times Wimbledon champion Venus Williams after she dispensed with Wang Qiang in straight sets.

Julia Goerges is next up for Putintseva after the 2018 Wimbledon semi-finalist defeated Russia's Evgeniya Rodina 6-4, 6-3. "I feel like I know exactly how I want to play in most matches, and it's just about going out there trying to execute as best I can". "That was great. My opponent she also played well and it was nice to have answers to her play", said Williams.

"But I thought I was playing good".

Serving for the career-best triumph, the Kazakh landed a slice victor in game nine to march over the top and enter the quarter-final.
