She had a lousy match, yes! but still you can't take anything away from Osaka, she absolutely dominated and I'm shocked by her composure. She's only 20 years old...To be honest, Serena did half of the work. I can't recall the last time I saw her DF so much in a match of such importance...
She should have let it go but that is easier said than done when your emotions are high and adrenaline is rushing. The majority of the time Serena is able to channel that in to her game she could not. But she played much better the second set and it showed.She very obviously wasn’t looking to be coached and didn’t realize what he was doing. That’s why she lost her ****.
She should have accepted that he did do it tho and just carried on.
He was simply doing his job, and made spot on decisions. Serena’s behaviour made it all about the umpire, not the actions of the umpire directly.I'm not a Serena fan but this match shouldn't have been about the umpire. It wasn't fair to Osaka who was playing a great match.
