Naomi Osaka Tells Ellen DeGeneres What Serena Williams Whispered To Her

Naomi Osaka

With the very best athletes they do know and she just let herself down in that particular match.

The Women's Tennis Association made a similar argument, claiming that men and women professional tennis players are treated differently by umpires.

"At the time, I did ... think that they were booing at me".

Ramos handed Williams with three code violations - the first for on-court coaching, the second for racket abuse and finally the game penalty for verbal abuse, after Williams call him "a liar" and "a thief".

While Amul is slammed in India, an Australian newspaper has come under fire for publishing a controversial cartoon of Serena Williams.

"I have my personal opinion that maybe the chair umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit, especially in a Grand Slam final", Djokovic said in the aftermath of his US Open victory against Juan Martin del Potro.

Osaka, who was noticeably teary during the ceremony and at one point pulled her visor down over her eyes, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday and cleared up exactly what her idol said to her.

Williams, who has since been fined $17,000 by the United States Tennis Association for the violations, vigorously disputed each of them during the match.

There could be more fallout on the way following Serena Williams' clash with a chair umpire in Saturday's U.S. Open women's final.

To account for the longer game time, you could work out how many fines were issued per set.

But the International Tennis Federation defended Ramos and said in a statement that his "decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules" and that he "acted at all times with professionalism and integrity".

"He needed to tell Serena he can't apologise, he did the right thing there, he's got to be the boss - but all he had to say to Serena is: 'I am not attacking your character'. The incidents on the court are not the issue", he added.

However, one senior figure told The Guardian that privately, there was widespread concern about how the USTA and WTA had rushed to support Williams - which had led to vitriol and abuse on social media for Ramos.

Keothavong said: "Yes, that is a valid point and I think sexism in tennis and across sport is also a valid point". He is a strong umpire, respected by a lot of players, coaches and other umpires.

"No one was saying she was a good sport, if they are they're insane", added King. "She has been dedicated to tennis - she deserved her moment and unfortunately she didn't get it and everything has been overshadowed by Serena's behaviour". "I don't see it's necessary really to debate that".
