Serena fined US$17000 after US Open final outburst

"The chair umpire's decision was final and not reviewable by the Tournament Referee or the Grand Slam Supervisor who were called to the court at that time".

"I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief because I feel like he took the game from me", she said. I know you were rooting for me but let's make this the best moment we can and we'll get through it and give credit where it's due and have no more booing.

"You're attacking my character", she said, as she demanded an apology.

"I thought he took the game from me, other men said other things", said Williams, "I am here fighting for women's right and women's equality".

Despite her claims, her coach Patrick Mouratoglou admitted he was coaching after the match, though he insisted that Osaka's coach was doing the same thing.

Williams raged at umpire Ramos: "It was not coaching".

Serena Williams cried sexism after an extraordinary meltdown during her US Open final defeat by Naomi Osaka. When a man does the same, he's "outspoken' and there are no repercussions", she told Twitter followers.

Like Williams, Osaka has enjoyed a sibling rivalry although nowhere near as intense as Serena and her sister Venus. "More voices are needed to do the same", King tweeted. "I was like, 'Wow, this is not how I felt when I won my first Grand Slam.' I definitely don't want her to feel like that".

Then came Williams' infamous tirade after a foot fault in the 2009 semifinals against Kim Clijsters, and a to-do over a hindrance call in the 2011 final against Sam Stosur.

Williams whispered something to Osaka and wrapped an arm around her shoulders.

The deduction enraged Williams and she screamed at Ramos at the next changeover, drawing the game penalty after she called him a thief. Williams went over and shouted and cursed at Tsurubuchi, pointing at her.

Ings once issued a warning, point penalty and a game penalty against McEnroe at the 1987 US Open for obscenities directed at the umpire. First, she was accused of getting coaching signals. "I think that's the lesson we can all learn from this". I'm just a tennis player playing another tennis player.

It's all peppered with liberal doses of "likes", "you know" and "stuff".

Williams tried to compose herself again but it wasn't enough to beat Osaka - who cruises to win her first Grand Slam championship - beating her idol.

"At the changeover, at 4-3, Williams was assessed a third code violation for verbal abuse in the judgment of the umpire, which then required a game penalty".

"The star of the show has been once again the chair umpire", he wrote. And in press, Osaka had was unfazed in breaking down how she pulled it off.

That's the challenge tennis player Serena Williams was recently faced.

"We already talked. We have a great relationship", Williams said of Giudicelli last month, laughing as she added, "Everything is fine, guys".

Sports Nippon said Osaka had achieved a "complete victory" against an "irritated Serena who broke her racket".
