The US Open has fined Serena Williams $17,000 for three code violations during her loss in Saturday's women's singles final, the United States Tennis Association said. Williams squandered one more chance before Osaka sealed the hold with another big serve, offering a Serena-style "C'mon!"
When the violation was announced Williams approached Ramos to insist she never takes coaching and would rather lose than "cheat to win". The tennis superstar then approached Ramos to deny being coached or cheating.
During the trophy ceremony in Arthur Ashe Stadium, thousands of fans jeered repeatedly, and both Osaka - the champion - and Williams - the runner-up in her bid for a record-equaling 24thth Grand Slam trophy - cried.
At 1-0 in the second, the chair umpire, Carlos Ramos, issued a warning to Williams and her coach Patrick Mouratoglou who was believed to be signaling to Williams.
"I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief, because I thought he took a game from me", she said.
Smashing her racket in the second set, frustration was all over Williams' face after she lost the first set to Naomi Osaka of Japan. For me to say "thief" and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark. "This has happened to me too many times".
But Williams also showed clearly that the last thing she wanted to do was take away from Osaka's moment. Honestly, there's a lot I can learn from her from this match.
"When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it". She then yelled at the umpire and demanded an apology for the previous violation.

These petitioners had sought decriminalisation of consensual gay sex between adults by declaring Section 377 as unconstitutional. CJI Misra observed, "No one can escape from their individuality and the sustenance of identity is the pyramid of life".
"She's always working to improve; always eager to embrace new challenges; and to set new standards". When a man does the same, he's "outspoken" & and there are no repercussions.
Those in attendance began to boo, at which point Williams lifted a hand towards the crowd to quieten them before unleashing another furious volley in Ramos 'direction.
Serena Williams lost the U.S. Open final Saturday in a match that left victor Naomi Osaka in tears and is still inspiring reflection and criticism a day later.
Others widely shared Sally Jenkin's op-ed in the Washington Post, in which she said that the umpire "abused his authority".
Meanwhile there has been further debate over Williams' charge that she had been a victim of sexism from the chair.
When it came time for Osaka to speak, she also acknowledged the hard moment. The star, following the tennis match which she lost, accused him of being a "thief" as well as a "liar", and asked him when he would apologize for his actions. Williams told Ramos that Mouratoglou was giving her a "come on" and a thumbs up, not coaching.
Williams's tantrum overshadowed an outstanding performance from Osaka, who made her second career title a Grand Slam after winning her first at Indian Wells in March.
Saturday's US Open women's final went to Naomi Osaka, who became the first Japanese woman to win a Grand Slam event.
