‘In a World of Hate’ – Naomi Osaka’s sister pens a powerful message for Serena Williams

It was an emotional rollercoaster ride for American tennis fans at this year’s US Open. It was at this tournament that one of the country’s greatest athletes, Serena Williams, said goodbye to tennis. Additionally, Frances Tiafoe ended a long men’s drought when he defeated Andrey Rublev and advanced to his first Grand Slam semifinal.

Williams gave everything she could in the last tournament of her career. She even knocked out second seed Anett Kontaveit en route to her third-round exit. However, she failed to overcome the challenge of Ajla Tomljanovic in the third round. Despite this defeat, Williams gave the home crowd many beautiful moments. Recently, Naomi Osaka’s sister, Mari Osaka, thanked Serena Williams for being an inspiration.
