It was a very controversial match, as there were several heated exchanges between Serena Williams and the umpire. The umpire, deducted points from Serena during the match. There were several moments when Serena could be seen arguing with the match official, particularly when he took a point away from her for “coaching” during the match.
Osaka played an awesome match and pulled off an incredible victory. Naomi Oska is the first Japanese player to ever win a US Open finals, and it was her first Grand Slam. It was not Serena’s best game as she was outplayed in the first set by Osaka. Just as Serena was getting her game together in the second set, that is when the controversy as a result of match point deduction began. Serena could be heard saying to the umpire, “I don’t cheat to win, I’d rather lose” and, “You owe me an apology.” The umpire even accused Serena of verbal abuse🙄.
