Is Serena Williams, 36, reign as the top women’s tennis player over? That’s what people are saying after her crushing loss to Naomi Osaka.
Osaka, 20, is now the only thing the sports world is talking about, mostly because she’s a mystery. No one really knows all that much about the newcomer, and that’s what’s so shocking about Serena’s loss.
By all accounts, Serena should’ve trounced Osaka, but she was defeated in straight sets, 6-3 6-2, in the first round of this week’s 2017 Miami Open held at the Tennis Center at Crandon Park.
