The Japanese saw the match turn into a tempestuous affair with Serena clashing with the referee.The tennis legend had hit out at chair umpire, Carlos Ramos and called him “a thief”.Later on, she also accused him of sexism.
From there on, Serena’s reaction took over all media outlets and Osaka’s first Grand Slam win went overshadowed.The world number six, Naomi Osaka has now opened up on how she really felt post her victory in the last Slam of the year.“There’s a lot of stuff I want to say about how I felt and whatever,” said Osaka.
“For me, I don’t know, I don’t know, the memory of the US Open is a little bit bittersweet.”Osaka, who was left to tears post her victory, said that she wanted to move on once she had collected the trophy.“I just sort of wanted to move on at that point,” claimed Osaka.
She then went on to add that, “When you bite into it, it’s sweet, but also very strong – that’s how that memory feels to me.”
