Surprise at the US Open: Naomi Osaka falls defeated by Leylah Fernandez (and loses her cool)


(CNN) – In a surprising result, defending US Open champion Naomi Osaka not only lost her third-round match to Canadian Leylah Fernandez in three sets. The world No. 3 and four-time major league champion visibly, and unusually, also lost her cool.

Osaka, who led by one set, broke Fernandez for a 6-5 lead in the second set. But when he served with the option to win the match, Osaka was unable to close it out. During the tiebreaker, Osaka threw his racket onto the court. Fernandez won the tiebreaker to force a final set, and then the world No. 73 edged out Osaka to open the third. Not long after that, Osaka threw a ball into the crowd and was punished for code violation.

Fernandez went on to win the game 5-7, 7-6 (2), 6-4.

Fernandez, who turns 19 on September 6, will face No. 16 seed and three-time major tournament champion Angelique Kerber of Germany.
