Naomi Osaka, While Rallying for Social Justice, Wins U.S. Open Title

“The point is to make people start talking,” Osaka said at the award ceremony.

Her time at the top has been short but impactful, and Saturday’s victory came in radically different conditions than her first title run in New York in 2018.

In that final, she defeated Serena Williams in a tumultuous straight-set match that turned ugly when Williams clashed in Arthur Ashe Stadium with chair umpire Carlos Ramos, who called three code-of-conduct violations against Williams.

The crowd, unclear on the rules and upset at the treatment of Williams, booed during the awards ceremony, leaving Osaka in tears shortly after her first Grand Slam singles title.
