Serena Williams Fell To Naomi Osaka In A Tense US Open Final

During Saturday's match, Williams was handed a coaching violation and a point penalty for breaking her racquet.

Williams lost to Naomi Osaka in Saturday's US Open final.

Let's bring it back to Williams, who was fined a total of $17,000 by the tournament referee on Sunday, a day after her 6-2, 6-4 loss to Naomi Osaka at Flushing Meadows. Afterward, she spoke about why she called Ramos a thief for taking her point and game and how she had cited Olympia in telling him on the court, "I don't cheat to win".

Williams, who was aiming to equal Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles, refused to shake hands with umpire Ramos after the match.

When the violation was announced Williams approached Ramos to insist she never takes coaching and would rather lose than "cheat to win".

Osaka revealed she was not quite coolness personified, though, saying: "I woke up and I was sweating".

King tweeted, "when a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it". I'm just a tennis player playing another tennis player. In 2009 she was called for a foot fault on a second serve, giving Kim Clijsters a double match point in their semifinal match. "Maybe it didn't work out for me, but it's going to work out for the next person". Williams emotionally had told him that she does not cheat and has a daughter for whom she tries to set an example. "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".

In the second set's second game, Ramos warned Williams for getting coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches.

She later accused him of sexism, saying: "He's never taken a game from a man because they said "thief". Mouratoglou claimed that Osaka's coach Sascha Bajin was also doing the same. Williams argued the call and threatened the lineswoman that she would "shove this [expletive] ball down your [expletive] throat".

"Well, I mean, I am honest, I was coaching", Mouratoglou said in an interview with ESPN, adding, "I don't think she looked at me, that's why she didn't even think I was, but I was". "Unusual to do that in a Grand Slam final", Mouratoglou said. It was just so sad for me to see at the presentation that she was in tears.

Osaka's current clothing contract with adidas runs out at the end of the year and she is now perfectly positioned to secure a multi-million-dollar deal, along with many other endorsements.

Under Article III, Section P, "verbal abuse" is defined as "a statement about an official, opponent, sponsor, spectator or other person that implies dishonesty or is derogatory, insulting or otherwise abusive".

"I know she was frustrated by the way the game ended, but the way she took a step forward after the final and gave Naomi all the credit says a lot in her favour", she added.

It remains to be seen what will be the decision taken by the top leaders of the tournament and women's tennis when they study in detail what happened in the 50th edition of the last "big" of the year.

With jeers bouncing off the arena's closed roof, both players - the champion, Osaka, and the runner-up, Williams - wiped away tears during a trophy ceremony that was awkward for everyone involved. How many other men do things?
