The US Open final 2018 held on Saturday between Sarena Wiliams and Naomi Osaka will remain forever in the history of US open, not because Sarena lost the game because it turned out to be one of the most controversial game.

Soon after the incedent, Oskasa takes the advantage and she defeated Wiliams by 6-2, 6-4. Later Wiliams loses her control and breaks down her racket.
Naomi Osaka won her first Grand Slam title Saturday, beating Serena Williams in a controversial US Open final.
