Can’t take anything away from The GOAT . Naomi knows SERENA is not young and fast anymore and she exploited that. On the other hand Naomi is very humble even in her victory. The next Face Is here

I’ve never watched tennis so my question is: is Serena just getting too old for this? I believe she had time to run and hit the ball, but looked like she just gave up....
Osaka's the future face of Women's tennis.
She dominated that match 🎾 👌

This actually revealed a lot about Naomi’s game that Serena used to have to her game back in her prime when she was undefeated...Serena can win 24 she has to clean up the unforced errors and keep rally’s short and returns sharp. Her first service game was awful today her returns were played to Naomi’s strengths and power but mostly it’s her belief that her game can still win her 24 which I believe it absolutely can she has to perfect her strengths and minimize her weaknesses and play the right game with Naomi. Naomi was outstanding and present and clearly is on a career and legacy path at the moment her purpose is clear as day but two things can exist in one timeline and Serena has to understand that true reality if she is ever going to get that record!!!

A dominating performance, despite making 8 double faults and 3 double faults in one game to lose her serve! If her serve was more consistent, one would only imagine what kind of scores it would then be. Congratulation.

Hopefully at some point Ms. Evert will catch up to reality. She was absolutely giddy, and smug, when Serena scored the break in the second set. Then absolute silence as Serena failed to score another point in the match. I love Serena too, but her time has come and gone. To Ms. Evert: call the match that is happening, not the match you wish to see.

The grunting would annoy me.
If you play as long as Serena has, it's only a matter of time someone comes in that can beat you. Osaka has a long ways to go though, to catch up with Serena. She definitely has potential.
Congrats Osaka. 🇭🇹🇭🇹🇭🇹

Truth Reigns Forever:
If Serena practiced her grip strength with the rest of her cross fit regimen, she’ll win again ☝️😎 She needs to get those metal grip crushers that powerlifters use and she’ll beat Naomi. I believe Serena will be the oldest grand slam title winner ever at 40 years of age.

This is like Gemini Man. Serena is competing against a younger, faster more athletic version of herself.

Osaka is lethal , she reminds me of the younger serena
Williams broke serve to make it 4-4 in the second set and just when we thought it might have been a good match in the making, Osaka broke back AT LOVE, to secure the match. Wow.

Critizinging Osaka for being having a tummy, just means she's probably natural and not taking enhancers, oh how the haters will hate.

Serena is the GOAT, but Osaka is the best in the world right now - especially on hardcourts.

"Time and tide wait for no one."

Ken Norton had Muhammed Ali's number.

Father Time:
Ali was made to surrender to a young Larry Holmes; Holmes gave up to a youthful Mike Tyson - age yields to youth.

And so, youthful Naomi has the number of her senior star, Serenade Williams - 25 to 39

Do congratulate both ladies and wish them well.

It's the Naomi Osaka's era in women's Opens - without a doubt.

Bouquets of looohv to Heroine Naomi Osaka!

The commentators favored Serena till the end. I am not sure how I am supposed to support Serena when she screams for no reason but to intimidate her opponent when she goes down in the match

R Littlejohn
R Littlejohn:
They should not see each other until the finals but how it goes down under and up under in the US .
Serena just couldn't hit many winners, something that happens to most veteran players eventually. As the reactions slow the ability to make the crisp shots declines.
Well done Naomi!
It's sad to see Serena struggling just to try and tie Margaret Court's 24 majors. If she had trained as hard in the middle of her career as she has near the end of her career, she would have surpassed 24 titles 5 years ago. She squandered some of the best years of her tennis career because she didn't train as hard as her predecessors Steffi Graf and Martina Navratilova.

Osaka and andreescu power are to much for serena at this point in her career
Joseph George
Joseph George:
I said this over 2 years ago Serena would not win another major. Her body doesn’t align with other women around the world. She maybe in great shape for her age, but she needs to lose about 30 lbs. to get some of her stamina and quickness back. She can still beat the average player, but once you get to the quarterfinals and beyond the competition gets a lot better. It’s time to hang the racket up and go into commercials and announcing.
Lol y serena yellin so loud compared to osaka 😂😂

Osaka owns the rallies. She hits the ball much harder and deeper than what Serena is used to from the other players.
