Osaka not upset over Serena Williams’ outburst

Naomi played brilliantly to beat one of the greatest tennis players of all time, somebody whom she has idolized since childhood.

While Osaka competes for Japan - the country of her birth and her mother's homeland - Pierre-Louis noted that the blossoming women's singles star is always quick to recognize her Haitian heritage, especially since she grew up with her Haitian grandmother in the United States.

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova also criticized Williams this week, writing in The New York Times, "We can not measure ourselves by what we think we should also be able to get away with". It is inconceivable that while her coach admits to default, she is nonchalant. In 2006, the family moved from Long Island to Pembroke Pines, Florida, where the homeschooled girls spent their days practicing on the public courts. She is reportedly set to sign a huge deal with Adidas.

Australian Katrina Allen is a former tennis champion and a world no 1 at Royal Tennis, the original form of the game.

iNews reported on Thursday that, since Osaka's triumph at the US Open, shares in Yonex, a Japanese manufacturing company that also sponsors her, also rose over 10%. Although Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, noted: "I'm not a guy that gets too many code violations".

Williams became upset when accused of receiving coaching and smashed her racket before berating Ramos.

Serena Williams insists she never received any coaching signals from Patrick Mouratoglou during her US Open defeat to Naomi Osaka. Since coaching players at major tournaments is not allowed, Ramos slapped Serena with a code violation. She commented, "Me, as a woman, take a lot of warnings. And just like Naomi, Nissan is just getting started". "If it's like this, let me know", Strycova said. "You owe me an apology". "If it was wrong or right, I'm not the judge", said Bryan, a doubles specialist.


There were messages of support for Serena, as well as those condemning her behavior and agreeing with the umpire's calls.

Given that the Portuguese official is employed by the International Tennis Federation and doesn't umpire the WTA circuit, the next time he will cross paths with Williams will be January's grand slam in Melbourne.

Serena also refused to backtrack on her sexism claims.

The match ended in chaos, though, with the NY crowd booing. "She deserved credit, she deserved to win".
