What Did Serena Williams Whisper To Naomi Osaka?
HuffPost reported that Naomi Osaka dropped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday, September 11. The 20-year-old became the first-ever Japanese Grand Slam champion at the U.S. open this past Saturday. Osaka’s victory came amid controversy after her rival Serena Williams angrily confronted chair umpire Carlos Ramos, receiving three code violations. When Osaka appeared for the trophy ceremony she was loudly booed by the crowd. This prompted Williams to whisper something into Osaka’s ear. Osaka told Ellen that Williams “said that she was proud of me and that I should know that the crowd wasn’t booing at me.”
