US Open Champion Naomi Osaka Is Nissan's Newest Ambassador

Serena Williams confronts chair umpire Carlos Ramos during the U.S. Open final that she ultimately lost to Naomi Osaka

Strycova also hinted that she found it odd for the WTA Tour and US Tennis Association to release statements in support of Williams.

In becoming her country's first ever Grand Slam singles champ, Osaka, the daughter of a Haitian father and Japanese mother, is also helping break new ground in Japan as her bi-racial identity challenges the country's self-image as a racially homogenous society. In 2006, the family moved from Long Island to Pembroke Pines, Florida, where the homeschooled girls spent their days practicing on the public courts.

Here's a woman who is trying to return to the top ranks of tennis after having a child. Afraid that the budding athlete would not receive enough support from the United States Tennis Association, her father made a decision to sign her up with the Japanese Tennis Association. For former US Open champion Billie Jean-King there is little doubt where the blame lay. She drew applause praising Williams for calming a riled-up audience that booed the U.S. Open outcome to refocus the moment on Osaka's victory.

US Border Patrol agent arrested on suspicion of killing four women
Authorities found him hiding in a truck near a hotel in Laredo, Texas, which is on the western face of Texas' southern tip. The victim was "battling for survival" and had a gun pulled on her during the attempted kidnapping, according to Chapa.

Osaka had thrust herself into the limelight earlier in the year with a stunning victory over Daria Kasatkina in the final at Indian Wells claiming her first WTA title. After dropping the next game, Ms Williams completely lost her composure and threw a temper tantrum like a four-year-old. We will see how many other wins she can get during the season.

Williams says her coach Patrick Mouratoglou did not send any signals from the stands even though he has confirmed he made attempts to. However, only Djokovic was issued a warning and directed a comment at the umpire during the game: "Double standards, my friend, double standards", he told Ramos.

During and after the match, Williams said sexism was part of reason she received three code violations that led to significant penalties. "And just like Osaka, Nissan is just getting started", Hoshino added. Remember her "I swear to God I'll f.ing take the ball and shove it down your f.ing throat" at the linesman for calling her for a foot-fault against Kim Clijsters during the 2009 semi-final? "You're a thief, too!"

Mother, infant are first two confirmed deaths from Hurricane Florence
Hurricane Florence has caused some damage to Wilmington International Airport, said Gary Broughton, the airport's deputy director. Water kills more people in hurricanes than wind, and he said it will still be an extremely risky storm for rain and storm surge.

According to The Guardian, Tennis Australia has avoided making a call yet on whether or not Ramos will be in the chair for any of Serena's matches. "She deserved credit, she deserved to win".

"You owe me and apology", she said.
