Naomi Osaka wins US Open after Serena ´umpire thief´ meltdown

Naomi Osaka wins US Open after Serena ´umpire thief´ meltdown”

She briefly disputed that ruling, saying cheating "is the one thing I've never done, ever" - although afterward, her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, acknowledged he was trying to send Williams a signal.

The USTA didn't seem much offended, however, by Serena's act in which she carried on for a handful of games, haranguing the umpire, demanding apologies, calling him "a thief" and "liar" and threatening he would never officiate another match of hers again. As she sat in her chair during the changeover, Williams demanded an apology from Ramos for accusing of her cheating.

Billie Jean King, a tennis great and pioneer, congratulated Osaka in a tweet before thanking Williams in a separate one for calling out a double standard between men and women in the sport: "When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalized for it". I know you were rooting for me but let's make this the best moment we can and we'll get through it and give credit where it's due and have no more booing. This is not fair.

The headlines were supposed to be about Williams' bid for a record-equalling 24th grand slam title and Osaka trying to become Japan's first slam victor, but instead an argument with umpire Carlos Ramos that escalated dominated the match. "More voices are needed to do the same".

"I didn't get coaching".

"[It was] tnteresting in his interview post-match [that] Mouratoglou said, 'Yes I was coaching, I'll admit to it'". But I'm going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equal - like, Cornet should be able to take off her shirt without getting a fine. I had a good conversation with him: 'You know my character.

Briefly, Williams appeared to be working her way back into the match, breaking Osaka for the only time to go up 3-1 in the second set.

Williams received a second violation when she smashed her racket in frustration.

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. "[Osaka's coach] was coaching every point too". "What Serena has accomplished this year in playing her way back on to the tour is truly wonderful", Adams said in the statement. But then when I hugged her at the net.

Osaka was causing the 36-year-old veteran untold problems with her powerful groundstrokes on Arthur Ashe and Williams.

'I'm going to say this: Enjoy, there's not going to be any coaching in the men's final tonight, right? Her dream was to play her idol at the U.S. Open.

As a tense audience celebrated and jeered at Osaka's win, both women were wiping away their tears when Williams whispered something to Osaka and then embraced her. "The fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person".

Osaka was tearful despite having won the match and remarked she was "sorry it had to end like this". "They're going to be allowed to do that because of today", Williams said.
