Naomi defeated Victoria Azarenka, 1-6, 6-3, 5-3. This Naomi‘s second win at the U.S. Open and her third Grand Slam win.

Throughout the tournament, Naomi arrived at all of her matches wearing a face mask with the name of a Black person who was killed at the hands of police. In past matches, she wore masks with George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Trayvon Martin‘s names on them.

For her final match, she wore a mask with Tamir Rice‘s name on it, who was a 12-year-old boy shot and killed in Cleveland by a white police officer in 2014.

After her match, ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi asked Naomi what message she was trying to send with the masks.

“Well, what was the message that you got? This is more of the question,” Naomi said. “I feel like the point is to make people start talking.”

Naomi‘s boyfriend rapper YBN Cordae was spotted in the stands cheering her on, while wearing a “Defund the Police” T-shirt.

Congrats on your win, Naomi!
