Watch 8 Important Moments from Serena’s US Open Final Fightback

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

Williams continued to defend herself after the match and called out the sport's double-standard, saying that no male tennis player has ever faced such harsh penalties for similar actions.

Williams went on to win the ninth game at love before Osaka won her first Grand Slam title on a second match point in the 10th game.

Williams said that her coach Patrick Mouratoglou had not been coaching her even though the Frenchman told ESPN that he had and that all coaches do it. Coaching on every point should be allowed in tennis.

Ramos gave her a third violation, which resulted in a game penalty, putting Osaka 5-3 ahead. Naomi Osaka would go on to with the match in straight sets 6-2, 6-4.

Serena Williams has been fined $17,000 (£13,156) for the code violations she received during the U.S. Open final, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) said on Sunday.

"Mouratoglou said that, if he was Ramos, he would have told Serena, "'I've seen your coach do a movement and tell him to stop, otherwise you'll have a warning.' And I don't understand why he didn't do that, where all the other chair umpires do this all year long, including him". Right here I'm preventing for ladies's rights and equality of men and women in all spheres. For me to say, "thief'and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark". I mean, like he's never taken a game from a man because he's said thief. "Because I'm a woman, you're going to take this away from me?" she yelled at officials.

Out on court, an unsettled Williams protested her innocence, telling Ramos: "I don't cheat to win".

"We already talked. We have a great relationship", Williams said of Giudicelli last month, laughing as she added, "Everything is fine, guys". "I have a daughter and I stand for what's right for her". I played against many players whose coaches have literally conversations with them. Williams lost to Naomi Osaka in Saturday's final. What was supposed to be a fairy-tale matchup for Osaka and the player she idolizes, spun out of control after Williams was handed code violations that she described as unfair.

It's all peppered with liberal doses of "likes", "you know" and "stuff". "You need to make an announcement that I didn't get coaching", she said. It doesn't change anything for me. I was really impressed.

Later, in a news conference, Williams said she had never before experienced problems with Ramos. Stop booing because she doesn't deserve it.

In other matches, Taiwanese players exited at the semi-finals stage. "I'm sorry it had to end like this".

2017 men's finalist Kevin Anderson urged Osaka to feel proud "for competing against someone you (and the rest of us) admire so much to win your first slam". Everyone knows this. It's on the commercials, it's everywhere. I'm not a Serena fan. "Anyway, when I hugged her at the net, I felt like a little kid again".

It is not the first time Williams has run into trouble with officials at Flushing Meadows.

Andrew Castle said the incident was reminiscent of Williams' meltdown at the same tournament in 2009 against Kim Clijsters.
