Naomi Osaka became the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam singles title when she beat Serena Williams 6-2 6-4 in the U.S. Open final on Saturday.
Osaka, 20, prevailed in the first major final of her career, thus preventing Williams from winning a record-equaling 24th Grand Slam title.
Williams was given a game penalty during the second set after a row erupted with umpire Carlos Ramos, who handed the American a code violation for illegal on-court coaching.
She however encouraged her fans to stop booing Naomi Osaka during the trophy presentation.
