Williams, seeded 17th as she seeks to add to her 23 Grand Slam titles for the first time since the birth of her daughter Olympia on September 1 of previous year, needed just 66 minutes to dispatch the 19th-seeded Latvian, who was playing in her first Grand Slam semi-final.
"I love you, Serena", she added before adding "I love you, mom; I love everybody". Two and a half years later, Williams herself will be testing that herself while Osaka lives out a dream.
"It still feels a little bit, like, surreal".
In an on-court interview with ESPN, Osaka was questioned on how she continued to deny her opponent a break and provoked laughter with her response.
"Yeah, I shouldn't really think of her as, like, my idol".
The contrast on Saturday can not be greater.

Six-time champion Serena Williams roared into her ninth US Open final on Thursday with an emphatic 6-3, 6-0 victory over Anastasija Sevastova.
Whatever happens in the final, Osaka said she will remain a fan of the American who is chasing a record-equalling 24th major, just a year after giving birth and undergoing four post-natal surgeries. The Miami Open was Williams' second tournament back, and since then she's made the fourth round of the French Open, the finals in Wimbledon and now the US Open final.
"I'm sure that everyone knows that Serena's really good, of course".
"I'm just going to go out there and play. She was very impressive".
