Naomi Osaka shocked by Serena Williams' spectacular meltdown at US Open final

  • Serena Williams and Anastasija Sevastova shake hands at the end of their semi-final

She then held serve to make it 5-4 and Osaka then served out the match to win her first Grand Slam title. Williams struck back-to-back double faults when immediately broken back for 3-2 in the second, paving the way for the racket smash. She received a penalty point for the second violation.

And with Osaka set to serve leading 4-3 in the second set, the umpire assessed her a game penalty after Williams continued calling him a "thief", automatically awarding the eighth game of the set to Osaka.

When she missed the shot, Williams vehemently slammed her racket to the ground in frustration, which elicited a second violation from Ramos. While Osaka's victory is remarkable on its own, this year's controversial US Open may be sparking a broader debate about sexism in sports. "That's, I think, one of the key issues we'll be talking about moving forward". "You are the liar!"

"I didn't know what was going on, I was just trying to focus". Say it. Say you're sorry.

"I don't cheat to win". Osaka apologized to the crowd for beating the local favorite and thanked Williams for being an inspiration.

"I don't want to be rude. I'm really grateful I was able to play with you". "So congratulations, Naomi. No more booing". "I know that she was frustrated about the way the match played out, but the way she stepped up after the final and gave full credit to Naomi for a match well-played speaks volumes about who she is". "I'm not a Serena fan-I'm just a tennis player playing another tennis player", Osaka said.

Serena Williams has begun play in her 31st career Grand Slam final, and Naomi Osaka her first. I'm not really sure because I've never been in the position.

Remarkably, Mouratoglou admitted he was coaching Williams from the sidelines, as he made these comments to ESPN. I don't know. We don't even have time to. Everyone is doing it 100% of the time. "It's not a big deal to break a racquet", Mouratoglou said. "She will struggle to get back from this".

United States charges North Korean programmer with WannaCry, other massive cyberattacks
The US Treasury Department has imposed sanctions against Park and the Chinese-based front company he worked for, Chosun Expo. The WannaCry ransomware attack targeted anyone using Windows computers in May of 2017 with demands to send cryptocurrency.

"There are matters that need to be looked into that took place during the match", the WTA said in a statement. Honestly, there's a lot I can learn from her from this match. The umpire instantly awarded a game to Osaka citing a "verbal abuse call" against Williams.

In the press conference later she was still fuming.

"Do you know how many other men do things that are much worse than that, this is not fair". "I'm here fighting for women's rights and women's equality and for all kinds of stuff".

"Then I had a good conversation with him".

"I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief, because I thought he took a game from me", she said. It blows my mind.

Naomi Osaka told US Open title opponent Serena Williams "I love you" just moments after she became the first Japanese womam to reach a Grand Slam final. "They're going to be allowed to do that because of today", Williams said. "I can only go up from that match".

Canadian fan Vince Degiorgio, who lives in Ontario with his Japanese wife, said that Osaka's win "will be an inspiration to not only Japanese female tennis players, but all kids of mixed race people in Japan who strive to show pride in their heritage". We'll remember Saturday as the moment she became a genuine star.
