She was mostly dominant, dropping only one set in her seven matches, and she saved 5 of 6 break points against Williams after erasing all 13 in the semifinals against Madison Keys.
What the 2018 final will forever be remembered for is the way Williams clashed with chair umpire Carlos Ramos, demanding an apology after he initially issued a warning for a code violation in the second set's second game for receiving coaching, which is not allowed during Grand Slam matches.
"I know everyone was cheering for her and I'm sorry it had to end like this", said Osaka.
"That's never been something I've ever done, you know".
Ramos gave Williams several code penalities: The first one was a warning for a coaching violation, the second warning was when she broke her racket, which gave a point to Osaka.
She continued her rant as she stated to the tournament referee: "This is not fair". What will stay with her is the hug at the net afterward, and Williams' kind words during the trophy presentation, when she asked a booing crowd to focus its intention on Osaka's moment.
After a protracted argument with officials, Williams accepted her penalty-begrudgingly, to be sure-while the crowd booed loudly.
"She played well", Williams said, pausing to compose herself.
She beat Williams in their first meeting, at the Miami Open earlier this year, and she proved it wasn't a fluke this time around.
"Lets give everyone the credit where credit is due". Let's not boo any more.
Williams, who also was in tears during and after the match, tried to ensure the moment was not ruined for Osaka, a player who idolized her when she was growing up.
Osaka was nervous Saturday, making a few phone calls to her sister in Paris to calm her down. "I have never cheated in my life, I have a daughter and I stand for what's right for her".
Naomi Osaka apologised for winning the US Open after defeating home favourite Serena Williams in a contentious final. During the match, tense coaches and player teams employ a range of approaches.
After a confident hold punctuated by a 106 miles per hour ace Osaka broke again to lead 4-1, silencing the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd. "Serena", replied the charismatic Osaka. "And her words after the match deserve a big warm applause under the unexpected circumstances".
The tranquillity didn't last long. And she covered the court better than Williams did.
Upon losing her serve, Serena smashed her racket in anger that led to the umpire docking a point off her. "I'm kind of stunned", agreed childhood tennis buddies watching the match in other United States cities.
And as for how those dreams ended: "I don't dream to lose, so..."
"There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things and because they're a man, that doesn't happen to them".
Williams was hit with a first violation for Mouratoglou coaching her with a hand signal in the second set.
The 32-year-old Murray, brother of former Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion Andy Murray, played with Mattek-Sands for the first time in the tournament.
Serena, instead, alleged the chair umpire for double standards and said that she was a victim of sexism.
However, Serena, later in her press conference, reiterated that she had received no coaching.
In the end it was Osaka making history but on a day of freaky events her victory will only be a footnote to what is sure to go down as one of the most infamous matches ever played at Flushing Meadows.
