Serena Williams faces substantial fine after US Open final outburst

10 September 2018

Ramos handed Williams a point penalty later in the night after she slammed her racket down, breaking it.

Naomi Osaka still struggles to believe that she won her maiden Grand Slam title at the US Open on Saturday beating the American Serena Williams.

Ramos's decision to hand a code violation in the second game of the second set sent Williams into a rage as she stormed to his chair and said: "I don't cheat to win!"

The other two infractions were $4,000 for the initial code violation for being warned about coaching and $3,000 for smashing her racket after having her serve broken in the second set.

Williams, who was seeking a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles tile on Saturday, vigorously disputed each of the violations during the match.

Williams was penalized a point and then a game by chair umpire Carl Ramos in the final.

Osaka revealed she was not quite coolness personified, though, saying: "I woke up and I was sweating". I just feel like I had a lot of emotions, so I had to kind of categorize what was which emotion', Osaka said.

US Open 2018: Sloane Stephens proud despite failure to repeat triumph
Stephens said that despite the manner of her defeat on Tuesday she was content with what she had achieved at this tournament. Soon after that, Williams went from trailing, 4-2, to not only taking the first set but also leading, 4-0, in the second.

When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it.

"What the umpire did is totally not acceptable and I hope that we are going to have a sanction because we just can't let that happen", she said.

"She played an awesome match".

It was left for others to go beyond Williams' remarks to reporters and King, a pioneer in women's rights and sports, quickly stepped up. "I have a daughter and I stand for what is right and I have never cheated".

A few games later, Williams slammed her racquet and broke it.

"To lose a game for saying that is not fair", Williams said, and raised the idea that Ramos was being sexist: "There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things and because they are men, that doesn't happen". 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 addressed Osaka's bittersweet win in her post-match presser.

Eagles hold off Falcons to begin title defense
It was actually the same play the Patriots ran against the Eagles , but in Super Bowl LII a pass to Tom Brady fell incomplete. The last time the Eagles took the field for a game that mattered, the temperature hovered around zero in Minneapolis.

"When I was growing up, I did a whole report on her in third grade", Osaka said.

Williams added that the incident strengthened her belief that women players are treated differently from their male counterparts. I feel so sorry for Naomi Osaka. This is a grand slam final'.

"Being called a cheater, she felt even more humiliated", Mouratoglou said. I'm not sure if they were happy tears or they were just sad tears, because of the moment.

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.

Mouratoglou took to Twitter afterwards, hitting out at Ramos. "It's one of the best officiating jobs I've seen in years".

She will head to Tokyo from NY ahead of the Pan Pacific Open, beginning on September 17, and it is likely to be some homecoming for the player born in Japan but raised in the United States. "It's the most cliched things you could think of, always things that make you go "Ugh". "Second, we all know that all the coaches coach at every match, all year long, from the first of January all the way to the 31st of December. Maybe there has to be a supervisor that comes on and has the final say before you give a game away".
