Williams was given a first code violation after Ramos judged a gesture from coach Patrick Mouratoglou to be coaching.

Serena Williams was fined $17,000 (£13,100) for the code violations that included calling the umpire a "liar" and "thief" in her US Open final loss. Afterward, she spoke about why she called Ramos a thief for taking her point and game and how she had cited Olympia in telling him on the court, "I don't cheat to win".

Williams was looking to win her 24th Grand Slam singles title, which would have tied her with Australia's Margaret Court for the all-time record. Still steaming from the previous warning, Williams fumed at the chair umpire and, as tensions rose on the court and in the crowd, she received a game penalty that gave Osaka a 5-3 lead, one game from the title.

Osaka then also responded to booing from the audience. Williams told the umpire, "I don't cheat to win".

When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it. I was just so stressed and I kept calling my sister, my poor sister.

Former Australian netball captain Liz Ellis told Sports Sunday that Williams may have tarnished her legacy after her epic meltdown.

"She played an incredible match". When are you going to give me my apology?

Like hundreds of other reporters in Washington , the Times' news staff is trying to find out the writer's name. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo condemned the essay.

Williams objected right away, saying she would never cheat.

That she was able to not let the moment get the better of her is a testament to her mettle in high-pressure situations, which bodes well for her hopes of racking up more Grand Slam titles.

In the second set's second game, Ramos warned Williams for getting coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches. There's also the freaky "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.

Osaka's sister Mari is also a tennis player and they were coached by their father after he made a decision to try to copy Richard Williams' remarkable success with his daughters.

"In what was a blatantly racist and sexist move, tennis umpire Carlos Ramos unfairly penalized Serena Williams in an abhorrent display of male dominance and discrimination".

The money comes out of her prize money of $1.85 million as the runner-up.

"Because the young player outplayed her in the first set, I think pressure got her more than anything".

I going to keep fighting and working hard to keep enjoying this tour and keep having chances to compete at the highest level. Djokovic's most recent win over him was in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon this summer, on his way to winning the title.

During a changeover, Williams resumed her argument with the umpire, this time saying he was attacking her character and was a "thief". I feel so sorry for Naomi Osaka. "He's never took a game from a man because they said thief".

"Her first Grand Slam win has been marred in some way".

Under Article III, Section P of the Grand Slam Rule Book, "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 abusive".

One thing that is certain is that Osaka's stock around the world, but particularly in Japan, will skyrocket.

Mouratoglou took to Twitter afterwards, hitting out at Ramos.

"If they can't adhere to the rules then they will have to allow the coaching because we can't have things like this outburst anymore". To lose a game for saying that, it's not fair.

"It's weird in the women's game where they have coaching", said Barker.
