Even legends endure double bagels

NaomiOsaka大坂なおみ
By Scoop Malinowski

US Open champion Naomi Osaka is still bothered by the fact that the highlight moment of her career – winning the US Open – was destroyed by the inner ugly and horrid sportsmanship of Serena Williams.

“I mean, of course I’m happy that I won a Grand Slam,” Osaka told reporters in a press conference on Monday. “I don’t think there’s anything that can take away from that. But I don’t know.

Camila Giorgi played probably the best set of her life today to snatch the first from Queen Serena in today’s Wimbledon quarterfinal 63. But as expected, Serena Williams answered the warning call with her typical response.

WTA player Arina Rodionova asked a very good question on Twitter.

Nothing against Serena’s outfit, looks pretty cool actually. But just wondering how is that allowed by the rules if we are only allowed to wear legging until the middle of the calf the longest, and ALWAYS have to wear skirt/shorts on top of the leggings. Were there any rules changes?
