Six days after her historic US Open victory, champion Naomi Osaka has spoken about what really went down on the podium between the 20-year-old and her childhood idol, Serena Williams.
Osaka became the first-ever Japanese-born Grand Slam champion on Saturday after her stunning defeat over the former World No.1.
The rising tennis star’s victory was sadly overshadowed by a firestorm of controversy after Williams confronted chair umpire Carlos Ramos and was slapped with three code violations.
After taking out the match in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4, Osaka and Williams appeared together for the trophy ceremony, during which audible boos erupted from the crowd.
In a raw moment, the 23-time Grand Slam singles winner reached over to comfort her young opponent and whisper something in her ear.
Osaka, who was noticeably teary during the ceremony and at one point pulled her visor down over her eyes, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday and cleared up exactly what her idol said to her.
