    Press: "Sasha was interviewed a little while ago...What made you choose him to work with you?"

    Serena can go to hell. Naomi deserves her victory. But she can't even enjoy it since Serena is such a sore damn loser. Acting like she's some sort of prodigy and like defeat isn't supposed to happen to her. Naomi is so humble. I'm glad Serena lost

      "...an American enemy..."
      Are you living in a time warp? Japan and the U.S. have a mutual defense pact, and have had it since the '50s.
      The question is, how many times has the U.S. invaded Haiti since 1941? ...At least once.

    Quoting Naomi: "When I step onto the court its just about Tennis" "I want to have fun with every match that I play, Tennis is a game, but professional tennis players, we sometimes lose sight of that".
    Every tennis player should take an example of that, well said Naomi.

    Naomi is so humble. She had every right to be angry and bitter since her glory moment that she had worked her whole life for was stolen from her. But she chose to apologize and acknowledge Serena as an amazing player. NAOMI ERA IS STARTING AND SHE HAS MANY FANS!!!

    • MrJm323
      MrJm323 Month ago

      +Maggot Brain "Nothing was stolen from her; where do people get that idea from?"
      From Katrina Adams, the president of the U.S. Tennis Association, who before handing out the trophies said, "This was not the outcome WE were hoping for." ...And the booing crowds, who continued to boo long after the umpire had left and the two players were on the podium, waiting to receive their trophies. Naomi Osaka was in tears because it appeared the crowd was booing the outcome (her victory).
      The fact is, many of the crowd were people who don't regularly follow tennis but were fans of Serena anyway. They believed the hype that Serena was destined to get her 24th Grand Slam title, and anything that stood in the way of this was just denying what Serena was entitled to have.
      Serena and her minions soiled Naomi's moment of glory.

    Naomi you handled this most unfortunate situation with a grace and humbleness.THIS WAS HER DREAM TO PLAY HER IDOL SERENA AT THE US OPEN FINAL. Sadly, Serena, the crowd and the disgraceful comment by Katrina Adams "Perhaps this was not the finish we were looking for today". utterly spoiled Naomi's moment. Can you imagine? Naomi just achieved her dream and she should have been celebrated, not booed. Even with all those insulting comments and bad behavior by Serena, the crowd and Katrina Adams, Naomi apologized for winning because she knew if she were in the stand she would've been rooting for Serena. I am glad to see so many Americans and non-Americans applauding for Naomi's grace. So THANK YOU! Can someone please tell me name(s) of Grand Slam champions from the past who won unexpectedly against the crowd's favorite player and ended up being treated this poorly and yet somehow managed to be so humble and still respectful towards the crowd and the sore loser? Serena is one of the players known to have bad temper on court. She used the F word towards one of the line's people at the US open 2009, and got fined for that. This umpire called her for verbal abuse because Serena kept berating him and wouldn't let go. No, Serena didn't use curse words but it was how Serena kept verbally abusing the umpire "You owe me an apology" " Say you are sorry" " You will never work on one of matches". I don't think I was only one who was cringing as Serena acted like a bully. When it was all said and done at the press conference, Serena had turned this into gender inequality issue. Serena, if you act even remotely like how classy Chris Evert was, situations like this would never happen in the first place. You are a legend and little kids look up to you so please practice self restrain a little.I'm Japanese and we were taught to be humble and gracious from childhood. Her mother clearly kept the tradition. Naomi even thanked the crowd for watching and thanked Serena for playing and took a bow. HOW SO JAPANESE OF HER!
    BTW: Naomi completely outplayed Serena, just saying.

      Tak O She just played Serena in the us open final, that was her dream. She just did, it doesnt matter what happened during the match. People are forcing things on her, and are not even capable or willing to see or feel it Naomi's way. People are messing the experience. Morons.

    Great job Naomi! I cannot count how many times these fake news madia outlets have tried to deprive you of your Haitian background. You are such a very smart young lady the way you always seem to throw it right back in their faces with a smile. These people have a western colonial mindset with deep hatred towards Haiti for being the first black country in the Western Hemisphere to be independent. I have never met a Haitian person that was not proud to be Haitian. Go ask France about Haiti, go ask the so called great General Napoleon Bonapart about Haiti. Most Haitians speak 3 different languages and also hard working people. I speak Creol, French, Spanish & English. How many languages do YOU speak?
