Naomi Osaka shocks Serena Williams to win US Open title 


Naomi Osaka has won this year’s US Open.
Osaka, who becomes the first Japanese tennis player to achieve the feat, thwarted Serena Williams’ attempt to seal a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title, with a 6-2 6-4 victory in Saturday’s final.

Williams imploded in a furious tirade against umpire Carlos Ramos, calling him a “thief”, after he docked her a point for three code violations.

In the battle of youth against experience, it was the 20-year-old Osaka who came out with a fearless attacking style of play.

Osaka is also the youngest woman to reach the final at Flushing Meadows, since Caroline Wozniacki did it as a 19-year-old in 2009.
