Naomi Osaka won the US Open 2018, after a furious Serena Williams blamed the umpire for being a “cheat”, as the match was filled with emotional scenes from both players.
After a racquet crushing and another code violation, Williams was given a game penalty for her outburst, as Osaka won 6-2 6-4.

Amid all this controversy, the 20-year-old, Osaka maintained her concentration to end up the principal Japanese to win a Grand Slam.
On the other hand, Serena Williams declined to shake hands with umpire Carlos Ramos after the match.
“I just want to tell you guys: She played well and this is her first Grand Slam.”

However, Serena charitably complimented Osaka at the net after the 20th seed finished a phenomenal triumph. And, in spite of the fact that Williams’ conduct will grab attention, nothing ought to bring down a tasteful and formed show from Osaka.

When you think you’ve seen it all in tennis.. you have not. Truly unfortunate that the umpire got involved far too much. Restraint called for. So a wonderful performance by @Naomi_Osaka_ was partly spoiled. She was wrongly gifted a game, but earned the title. A huge new star.
