Tennis fans will recall Williams wore the tutu after the French Open banned her from wearing her black catsuit at future tournaments.

On Saturday, Serena Williams will be on the court for the U.S. Open finals, playing for her record-tying 24th Grand Slam title.

Williams was at her imperious best in defeating her Latvian opponent, taking only 66 minutes to dispatch her 6-3 6-0.

Here's what you need to know.

That, though, didn't faze 20-year-old Japanese phenom Naomi Osaka. The Florida-based athlete moved with her parents to NY at the age of 3.

IPhone 9 may be Apple’s most expensive iPhone yet
Forbes reported that Apple might retain its U.S. pricing ($699, $799, $999 respectively) based on EU's (€799, €909, €1149). It will come with a 6.1 inch LCD panel, which is markedly larger than the one seen on the last generation iPhone.

The campaign, which made its television debut during the National Football League season opener Thursday, has been greeted with videos of show burnings and complaints from US President Donald Trump.

Instead, the Japanese No. 1 will need to pick her spots wisely. But she has chosen to compete for the Japanese Tennis Association. In comparison, Naomi is ranked #19 in the singles rankings and has earned $3.2 million.

Tennis is not as big in Japan as baseball, soccer or sumo, but Osaka's 6-2 6-4 semi-final win over Keys made the front pages of major local newspapers on Thursday - although it was dwarfed by news of the quake that struck the northern island of Hokkaido earlier that day.

Mari has had a career-high ranking of #280, which she earned in 2017. To celebrate the tennis star's return to the US Open final, a year after giving birth to daughter, Olympia, Serena's husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian has shared a heartwarming video that's left many moved. "Serena", replied the charismatic Osaka. "The blueprint was already there", Francois told The New York Times. I mean, hopefully I won't play like that again. Every day I step on this court I'm so grateful that I have an opportunity to play this sport. But she did like beating her sister. "I wanted to try something different today and it worked".

"Of course, I feel like since the circumstances were so different, I'll be able to see, like, how she changed and stuff". Williams then had to take time off from tennis because of her hard birth experience. It debuted as a nine-point super tiebreak with a winner-takes-all point played at 4-4, before being replaced by the current 12-point, win-by-two tiebreak in 1975.
