Serena has mother of all meltdowns in US Open final loss

Serena Williams and Anastasija Sevastova shake hands at the end of their semi-final

On the women's singles front, Serena Williams has forged her own legacy and by the look of how she is still playing at the age of 36, she is bound to become the greatest of all time as well.

Osaka dominated Williams 6-2, 6-4 on Saturday afternoon Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City to win the U.S. Open - her first Grand Slam title. "No matter what happens in any match, semis, finals, I just feel like I've already won".

But Osaka was somehow able to keep her composure and she closed out the victory with Williams still unable to gather herself.

She is also the second Japanese player to reach a Grand Slam singles final after Kei Nishikori, who lost in the final of the U.S. Open in 2014.

Williams can never have imagined this time a year ago that she would be in a position to create history...

On Saturday, Williams will play Naomi Osaka, the 20-seed and a rising star from Japan.

It's often said you should never meet your heroes.

Less than two months after finishing as the runner-up at Wimbledon, Serena Williams is getting another chance at her 24th Grand Slam title. After being asked how she managed to fend off 13 break points against Madison Keys during the semi-finals, Naomi responded, "I just really want to play Serena". "This is just the beginning and I'm really excited about that". Osaka won the match 6-3, 6-2.

But with six titles in NY she needs just one more to surpass Chris Evert for most all-time - and she needs just one more Grand Slam title to equal Australian Margaret Court's all-time record of 24.

There is more Black Girl Magic that happened at the US Open: Sloane Stephens won the tournament previous year, but the defending champion's run ended Tuesday in the quarterfinals with a defeat. Williams takes the first game in set one after falling behind 30-0. I feel that there is no value either way at current market prices and in my opinion, the best strategy will be to wait for potential entry points in-play. "She's a really good player". The video then goes on to show Serena in the hospital with her newborn.
