Japanese Star Naomi Osaka on Saturday defeated Serena Williams to lift her first Grand Slam in New York, winning 6-2 6-4.
Her victory has denied Serena her dream record equalling 24th Grand Slam.
According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) the match was marred by rantings by Serena after the umpire warned her about a non verbal message passed to her by her French Coach Moratoglou. But Serena was unhinged thereafter, shouting expletives on the umpire, who imposed the sanction of awarding two game penalty to her opponent.
The sanction brought out tearful emotions from Serena and could be seen crying during the short break before Naomi served for the match to win her first record Grand Slam as a Japanese player.
