    Williams outburst wouldn’t have happened if she had been winning. So credit, Osaka (in only a good way) for putting the pressure on Williams. But, we all individually choose how we react to adversity. Williams raacted quite poorly. This may signal a quick fall from Williams perch atop the tennis world.

    Lost a lot of respect for Serena for pulling the victim card. Pretty classless.
    She kept hounding the umpire to apologize to her for accusing her of cheating.
    Of course she knew that he never accused her of cheating, only of taking coaching, which is against the rules. Her coach openly admitted he gave her signals, but justified it by stating everyone else does it.
    It wouldn’t have made any difference except she got a 2nd warning for breaking her bracket on the ground, then a 3rd for continuing to harass the ref. She got what she deserved. Congrats to Osaka. She outplayed Serena and deserved the win.

    Congratulations Naomi Osaka! Japan/Haiti in the house! Boo to Serena Williams for classless behavior and marring an earned victory by Osaka.
