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

The 23-time Grand Slam champion repeatedly confronted the umpire during the second set before calling for the tournament referee during an astonishing outburst. "I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose", she tells umpire Carlos Ramos.

At a news conference following her loss, Williams said she's seen male players call other umpires "several things". He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief.' For me, it blows my mind, but I'm going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equal coordination - to be able to take our shirt off on the court without getting a fine.

Tennis legend Chris Evert tweeted that Ramos should have warned Williams about the verbal abuse violation before penalizing her.

"Congratulations to both Naomi and Serena for reaching the final at the 50th anniversary of the US Open and to Naomi for winning her first Grand Slam title". She pleaded her case through tears to the two of them, insisting she is always treated unfairly at this event - and that men have called umpires much worse and not been penalized - but there was no budge in the score. "More voices are needed to do the same", she said.

The 23-time Grand Slam victor was stunned by the No.20 seed in the first set, falling to a 6-2 defeat in just 34 minutes.

There were some who criticized Williams for the way she reacted, going as far as calling it a "meltdown".

Williams was initially rattled in the first set by the quality of play from Osaka, who seemed to have no problem dealing with her opponent's power and had the sharper movement and serve. "This is outrageous", said Williams warming to her theme.

Ings once issued a warning, point penalty and a game penalty against McEnroe at the 1987 US Open for obscenities directed at the umpire.

Former American world number one and 18 time Grand Slam victor Chris Evert also weighed in on the ruling to dock Ms Wiliams a game.

"I didn't know what was going on, I was just trying to focus".

American tennis participant Serena Williams has defined his conduct within the remaining match of the US Open towards the Japanese Naomi Osaka (2:6, four:6) within the remaining of the US Open, stories "Soviet sport".

"Let's give everyone the credit where credit's due and let's not boo anymore", she told the crowd.

It looked like all the putts were going to go in, but they didn't go in today. "To shoot 29 on the front nine helps". He then parred his next five holes ahead of a 16th hole birdie before his only bogey at his 17th.

Williams sensed that the moment might have been spoiled for the Osaka, and tried to calm the situation, saying "I don't want to be rude".

After being broken by Osaka in the second set, Williams smashed her racquet and earned herself a second code violation and a point penalty.

But for me, I felt like I really had to focus during this match because she's such a great champion, and I know that she can come back from any point.

After the match, Williams was asked if there was anything she would have changed about the game.

"When I step on the court, I'm not a Serena fan - I'm just a tennis player playing another tennis player".

"The star of the show has been once again the chair umpire".
