Naomi Osaka won her second US Open title on Saturday, September 12, 2020, after beating Victoria Azarenka in the final.

The three-time Grand Slam champion celebrated her win by wearing an outfit that sought to honour her ancestors.

In a photo she posted on Twitter, the 22-year-old is seen wearing an orange print dress and a headwrap which looks like kente.

“You already know I had to bring out the headwrap for this one,” tweeted.

Prior to posting the photo, Osaka tweeted: “I would like to thank my ancestors because every time I remember their blood runs through my veins I am reminded that I cannot lose.”

Osaka is of a mixed origin, as her mother is Japanese and her father is Haitian.

Her look was praised by a lot of people who appreciated her decision to honour her ancestors after winning the US Open title.

In her run to winning the US Open title, Osaka wore face masks to honour victims of police brutality and racial injustice, in each of her seven games.
