8 things to know about the US Open victor Naomi Osaka

The chair umpire that Serena Williams called a thief in Saturday's U.S. Open women's final has always been one of the on-court officials willing to enforce the rules without fear or favour on the game's biggest stars, male and female.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion was warned for receiving coaching from the players' box during Saturday's final, triggering a row with the chair umpire in her 6-2, 6-4 loss to Naomi Osaka.
A few games later, Williams received another warning, this time for smashing her racket, and that second violation automatically cost her a point, leading to more arguing.
Osaka won the final but her victory was overshadowed by the on-court drama and booing of officials during the trophy ceremony.
Under Article III, Section P of the Grand Slam Rule Book, "verbal abuse" is defined as "a statement about an official, opponent, sponsor, spectator or other person that implies dishonesty or is derogatory, insulting or otherwise abusive". She told him: "I did it".
The match was tarnished by Serena's second set outburst. But I'm going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equal [rights].
On the other hand, Naomi Osaka went on to become the first ever tennis player from Japan to lift a grand slam title as she defeated Williams 6-2, 6-4 in the summit showdown at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in NY.
Date gave a withering assessment of the crowd's reaction after Osaka was clearly unable to savour her achievement. "I really don't", Djokovic said.
Chair umpire Carlos Ramos managed to rob not one but two players in the women's U.S. Open final.
Djokovic had sympathy for Williams in terms of the sanctions she was given but does not agree that women are treated differently from men.
Nine NRL commentator Erin Molan similarly said Ramos' controversial call was not a case of sexism.
WTA Tour chief executive Steve Simon has also said the sport should examine the rules on coaching, noting that his organisation allows on-court coaching during regular tour events if a player requests it. The world's former No. 1 tennis player thanked Williams for "calling out this double standard" and said that "more voices are needed to do the same". I really don't. I think men and women are treated in this way or the other way depending on the situation.
Just before the U.S. Open, the French Tennis Federation president said the black cat suit worn this year by Williams at the French Open would not be allowed at that tournament in the future. It's hard to generalize things, really. "Time and again, Osaka held firm, trumped Williams at her own power game, and did not panic", he added.
The Emergency Measures Organisation has announced that it is prepared to meet on Monday as Tropical Storm Florence gets nearer. Forecasters expect the storm to bring tropical storm conditions to parts of the Cabo Verde Islands on Saturday night.
The breach has been resolved and the BA website is up and running. "We take the protection of our customers' data very seriously". "We recommend that you contact your bank or credit card provider and follow their recommended advice".
He also gave Papadopoulos a year of supervision, 200 hours of community service, and fined him $9,500 (Rs 6,85,000). In that testimony, Sessions said he resisted the idea of any Russian Federation meeting proposed by Papadopoulos.
The top 30 make it to East Lake for the Tour Championship, where everyone has a mathematical chance at the $10 million prize. Though Woods has not won since 2013, he finished runner up at the Valspar Championship and PGA Championship this season.
With strong winds pushing against the coast, there is the concern of a 3-5 foot storm surge in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. The last hurricane to strike the US was Nate last October, coming ashore in Biloxi with 75 miles per hour (120 kph) winds.
Special counsel has reportedly agreed to take written answers from President on key questions about Russian Federation collusion. The president has said many times he would be willing to speak with Mueller but would await his legal teams guidance.
But journalists at other papers suggested that the piece by the anonymous official was simply too remarkable to ignore. He added that he thought it was wrong of the Times not to identify the piece's author.
He continued, "But I think as far as sending a message, I think it's a awful message and a message that shouldn't be sent". The ad, to mark the 30th anniversary of "Just Do it", features Kaepernick's face and the words "Believe in Something".
