In the second set's second game, Ramos warned Williams for getting coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches. I just want to tell you guys, she played well. I mean, like he's never taken a game from a man because he's said thief.

"I've seen other men call other umpires several things and I'm here fighting for women's rights and women's equality and all kinds of stuff, but for me to say "thief" and for him to take a game?"

The drama started when Ramos handed Williams a coaching violation early in the second set because of hand gestures made from the stands by her coach Patrick Mouratoglou. I don't even call for on-court coaching [which is allowed on certain occasions in WTA events].

Afterwards Williams said it was "sexist" to have been penalised a game.

After accepting her loss, Williams walked off the court, shook Osaka's hand and said to the umpire: "I want an apology". "When a man does the same, he's "outspoken" & and there are no repercussions".

The women's US Open final on Saturday ended with both the victor and loser standing on the court in tears and the crowd booing loudly-and the blame for such an freakish conclusion rests squarely on the fragile ego of chair umpire Carlos Ramos. "More voices are needed to do the same", King tweeted.

Amid all the drama, Osaka remained composed as she became Japan's first victor of a Slam.

It was filled with outbursts from Williams - who became incenthat found both she and Osaka in tears.

Reacting angrily, she then picked up a further code violation for verbal abuse after branding the umpire as a "liar" and a "thief". Her Nike outfit, which she said was inspired by the movie "Black Panther", was praised by her fans but had tennis officials shaking their heads. Then she asked to speak to tournament referee Brian Earley, who walked onto the court along with a Grand Slam supervisor. I don't think he knew if Serena saw the coaching or not. I was just trying to focus on myself at that time.' You acknowledged the crowd one time when you walked out, were pretty focused after that. You stole a point from me.

American tennis participant Serena Williams has defined his conduct within the remaining match of the US Open towards the Japanese Naomi Osaka (2:6, four:6) within the remaining of the US Open, stories "Soviet sport". A fierce competitor, she likely felt that she was robbed of a championship moment.

Williams received an initial code violation for coaching, a penalty point for racket abuse and a game penalty for calling umpire Ramos a "thief". And in press, Osaka had was unfazed in breaking down how she pulled it off.

The rating of 2.5 for the match was second only to a primetime telecast in 2015 in which Williams faced her sister Venus, and Novak Djokovic faced Feliciano Lopez.

"Serena is saying the male players can say what they like to an umpire".

"I've never seen anything like it. Tennis was the loser and we lost what was potentially a fantastic match", Barker said.
