Naomi Osaka upsets Serena Williams in controversial US Open final

Naomi Osaka upsets Serena Williams in controversial US Open final

Serena Williams was docked a game by an umpire after a series of controversial calls.

You had a feeling that Serena Williams' outburst was coming.

Williams initially felt hard done by when handed a first-set warning for what chair official Carlos Ramos believed to be on-court coaching. It isn't, and as a result, a player was penalized for the actions of her coach. I don't cheat to win.

US Open tournament referee Brian Earley administered fines of $4,000 for the coaching violation, $3,000 for racket abuse and $10,000 for the verbal abuse, the USTA said.

"It was always my dream to play Serena in the US Open finals". She tearfully accused the umpire of being a "thief" and angrily demanded an apology from the official. You will never be on a court of mine as long as you live.

"You are a liar", she called out the umpire.

"How dare you insinuate that I was cheating?" Give me my apology. Say it you're sorry. You're a thief too'.

Osaka ahead 15-love, Williams told Ramos he should have retracted the initial warning for coaching. I have never cheated in my life. "Maybe it's coincidence", Williams said.

"There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things", Williams said, "and because they are men, that doesn't happen". 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. "That is not right". "For me to say 'thief" and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark.

She said: "I've seen other men call other umpires several things".

The view from the crowd during the trophy ceremony. "Sash [Osaka's coach Sascha Bajin] was coaching as well". "I said, 'I want to be like her'". I'm just a tennis player playing another tennis player.

Billie Jean King said there is a clear double standard in the way the rules are applied to women and men. -Osaka's coach Sascha Bajin, a former hitting partner of Williams, on Twitter. She became the youngest woman to reach the US Open final since Caroline Wozniacki in 2009. Even during the match, whenever she was faced with a tough spot, she kept telling herself to try to do what Williams would do.

She described the awarding of penalties for relatively minor infractions as "pure pettiness" and an "abuse of power". "I stand for what's right", insisted Williams as they headed into the sixth game - in which Osaka held at love. It just wouldn't. - Two-time major victor and former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka on Twitter.

"Thank you, @serenawilliams, for calling out this double standard".

But she didn't walk back her claim that sexism played a role.

Other social media reactions were divided about what happened.

After a confident hold punctuated by a 106 miles per hour ace Osaka broke again to lead 4-1, silencing the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd.
