Japan’s Naomi Osaka beat tennis star Serena Williams on Saturday to snag her first U.S. Open victory, after a Williams meltdown on the court.
Drama on the tennis court after Naomi Osaka’s first ever Grand Slam victory against Serena Williams at the U.S. Open on Saturday.
Chair umpire Carlos Ramos sent Williams into a rage after on-court coaching and verbal abuse violations that led to snapped tennis racket and more theatrics.
With the first violation, Williams had a point deducted. But after the third incident she was punished with an entire game.
After a 6-2 6-4 win against her tennis idol, Osaka said “I’m sorry it had to end this way”.
The victory makes Osaka Japan’s first ever Grand Slam champion.
