Naomi Osaka does not feel sad about Serena Williams’ outburst overshadowing US Open win


Naomi Osaka won her first Grand Slam at the US Open

New US Open champion Naomi Osaka says she does not feel sad about the way her win was overshadowed by Serena Williams’ outbursts at the umpire.

Osaka, 20, beat Williams 6-2 6-4 in Saturday’s final, but the crowd booed as she received the trophy.

Williams got a code violation for coaching, a penalty point for racquet abuse and a game penalty for calling the umpire a “thief” in New York.

“At the time I did think they were booing at me,” said Japan’s Osaka.
