Naomi Osaka overcomes her idol to win U.S. Open

Tom, thank you for joining us.

"It was kind of hard because I was really concerned about her, like, the inner fan in me jumped out, so I really had to push to keep a straight face".

Before Williams's meltdown, Osaka had already put the 36-year-old under rarely seen pressure.

Osaka apologized to the crowd.

Here's what Mouratoglou said after the match about the double standard he and Williams believe she is held to.

"I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose", Williams was heard telling Ramos. There was no thumbs-up sign. On the first point of the set's fifth game, Osaka smacked a forehand victor down the line off Williams's first serve.

Osaka gave up her first service game of the second set, and then went down 3-1 by dropping her second, but then turned the match on its head by breaking immediately back and then holding to draw even in the set at 3-3. Because of her prior warning, she was then assessed a point penalty to Osaka.

It was more of the same in the second set as Keys' woes continued, the Australian and French Open semi-finalist broken in the first game. He assessed what's called a coaching warning, which carries a point penalty.

The 20-year-old indeed made history for Japan but the final will be remembered as much - if not more - for Williams clashing with chair umpire Carlos Ramos in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

"I feel like she was playing really well, but I feel like I really needed to do a lot to change in that match to try to come out front, to try to come out on top", she said.

He also developed such a knack for using his huge hands to swat down passes at the line that he earned the nickname "J.J". I still feel that there's things to accomplish. "I actually didn't wear a knee brace back then", said Brady.

Osaka, who grew up in NY, was up next in what was a hard spot for a less experienced player: "I know that everyone was cheering for her and I'm sorry it had to end like this", she said. She interrupted the speaker, saying, "I don't wanna be rude, but I don't want to interrupt, do questions". "You own me an apology".

"You stole a point from me, you're a thief too".

"The star of the show has been once again the chair umpire", he tweeted. And that's when she called him a "thief", prompting a code violation for verbal abuse.

At that point, Williams called for referee Brian Earley, who came to the court with Grand Slam supervisor Donna Kelso.

Former world number one Williams, who insists she can still improve significantly as she gets more matches under her belt, recorded her latest win on the day Woods shot a sparkling 62 in round one of the BMW Championship.

The first-ever Japanese Grand Slam victor had spoken about her dream final - and here she got to face, and beat, her childhood idol.

Serena Williams has declared she did not know her coach was giving her instructions and did not cheat after her hopes of winning a 24th grand slam title ended in extraordinary scenes at the US Open. They both played superb tennis throughout the US Open.

In a statement, the WTA said: "There are matters that need to be looked into that took place during the match". It was a muted celebration befitting a player who stood out these last two weeks for her levelheadedness.

This was two of the candidates to take over the mantle from Williams when she does finally hang up her racket slugging it out on the biggest stage in the sport.
