Naomi Osaka wins first Grand Slam title

Naomi Osaka

Congratulations to Naomi Osaka, who has won her first Grand Slam championship at the US Open.

The 20-year-old player, who is quickly becoming a huge star in Japan, beat Serena Williams in straight sets to take a thoroughly deserved win (and rather large cheque).

Sadly, fans have been leaving insulting comments her Instagram page following the win, which is unacceptable. Whatever your opinion regarding what happened to Serena Williams - and how she reacted - Osaka was not to blame for any of it.

In fact, she had already taken the first set 6-2 and remained respectful and composed to close out the win. Well done.
