At the time when tearful Osaka appeared for the trophy ceremony, she thought that the crowd was booing at her.
Osaka also told Ellen what Williams had whispered in her ear following the match saying, “She said that she was proud of me and that I should know that the crowd wasn’t booing at me… so I was really happy that she said that.”
“At the time I did kinda think they were booing at me… I couldn’t tell what was going on because it was just so loud in there, so it was a little bit stressful.”
Naomi told Ellen that she will buy some present for her parents with the amount she won at US Open. Ellen gifted Naomi a 64 inch 4k TV and concluded the show saying Naomi Osaka to embrace her win and she is adorable.
