For nearly two weeks, Serena Williams dominated her opposition at the U.S. Open. She seemed poised to win her 24th Grand Slam title, just 53 weeks after giving birth to her daughter. But in the finals, Williams was derailed by the play of Naomi Osaka and unnerved by some of the decisions of the chair umpire. (Credit: Newsday staff)
