Naomi Osaka has had the courage to beat Serena Williams in a controversial US Open final to become the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam title.

Lost in the second set, Williams received a penalty after being involved in a verbal altercation with referee Carlos Ramos in a score change, after previous code infractions to train and then break his racket.

"Never, never, you will be in another court of mine while you live, you are the liar, when will you give me my apologies?" Williams said in a furious diatribe directed at the chair umpire.

"You owe me an apology … Say it … Say you're sorry … And you stole a point from me … You're a thief too!

Victory 6-2 6-4 for Osaka of 20 years in his first grand final took one hour and 19 minutes.
