When Serena Williams was working with her hitting partner Sascha Bajin, she had some of the most successful years in career. Now Bajin has been on Naomi Osaka's corner since the end of 2017 and this year the Japanese star won her maiden WTA career-title at Indian Wells and her first Grand Slam at the US Open beating the American Serena Williams in the final.
Through his official Twitter account, Bajin praised both Serena and Naomi: 'Thank you @serenawilliams total class at the speech and you truly are the goat. Super proud of @Naomi_Osaka_ and our whole team!! She got her wish with @serenawilliams on the other side of the net for Saturday.
Finals Baby!!!!', Bajin wrote. There is no time to rest for Osaka who will play three Asian consecutive tournaments: Tokyo, Wuhan and Beijing. Speaking on BBC Radio, Sue Barker said: 'As far as the rant goes, I think the umpire was following the rules by the book, and so that is harsh.
But Serena in some ways has a point in the fact that I've sat courtside watching the men ranting at umpires and (they) haven't been given a violation. Both have a point. Serena is saying the male players can say what they like to an umpire.
Also, earlier in the tournament we saw Alize Cornet being given a code violation for changing her shirt on-court. Then, in the same tournament, Mohamed Lahyani gets off the umpires' chair to talk to Nick Kyrgios and persuade him not to give up on a match.'
