US Open 2018 has come to an end; it brought a lot of surprises already during the decisive matches. Like the whole women tennis season, it gave us a new winner, which almost no one believed in before the start of the competition.
The main favorites of the competition left the US Open at an early stage. However, this can not be said about Serene Williams, who, although not among the first seeding numbers, was still considered one of the main contenders for the victory. Recently, the American tennis player played in the final of the Wimbledon tournament, where she failed. Now, at the home courts, she had to prove her advantage, but again failed in the decisive match.
Her rival, the Japanese athlete Osaka, was sown under the 20th number. However, this did not stop her from not just winning, but doing it very confidently, in two sets.
