Serena Williams fined $17,000 for three code violations during US Open final

10 September 2018

Entering the final, she had dropped just 28 games through six matches. You will never be on a court of mine as long as you live.

As a tense audience celebrated and jeered at Osaka's win, both women were wiping away their tears when Williams whispered something to Osaka and then embraced her.

Serena Williams' hopes of winning a 24th grand slam title were dashed after extraordinary scenes at the US Open.

"She played well", Williams said, pausing to compose herself. "I know you guys were here rooting, but let's make this the best moment we can". Let's not boo any more.

Serena stormed up to his chair and informed him that she would never deliberately receive guidance from Mouratoglou, who was sat in the players' box.

Osaka notably pulled her cap over her eyes, to hide her reaction. "I have a daughter and I stand for what's right for her".

Tennis umpire Carlos Ramos is now in the public eye after getting into an argument with Serena Williams at the 2018 U.S. Open finals.

"And you stole a point from me".

That led to the 23-time Grand Slam champion launching a barrage of abuse at the umpire, slamming his decision.

"That's where the rule gets really tricky for the player on the court". At 20, Naomi Osaka has already risen.

Fans were determined to see the positive, praising Williams and Osaka for their conduct in standing up for each other.

They came to life again as Williams gained her first break chance, which Osaka saved with a 117 miles per hour service victor.

Williams took exception to a coaching violation handed to her by Ramos - adamant that she "would rather lose" than cheat.

Those in attendance began to boo, at which point Williams lifted a hand towards the crowd to quieten them before unleashing another furious volley in Ramos 'direction.

In frustration during the changeover, Williams smashed her racquet, earning another code violation and a one-point deduction.

She then launched a series of verbal attacks on Ramos, demanding an apology for his call on the coaching violation to accusing him of being "a liar" and "a thief for stealing a point from me". I don't cheat, I didn't get coaching.

He responded by issuing a third code violation, which results in a lost game.

Williams, targetting her seventh USA title, accused Carlos Ramos of treating her differently because she is a woman, in a post match press conference. She continued to yell at the chair umpire several times about the initial penalty. There's also the freakish "abuse" citation, which Ramos doled out because Williams called him a "thief" - certainly far from the worst thing an athlete has called an official during an event.
