Williams fined $17,000 for U.S. Open code violations

Williams fined $17,000 for U.S. Open code violations

"Since it was my first Grand Slam final, I did not want to get overwhelmed", said Osaka.

The Japanese, only 20 years old and 20th seed, defeated Williams 6-2 and 6-4 as the American lost control during the match. Williams received a code violation for receiving coaching during the match and demanded an apology from the chair umpire, Carlos Ramos.

Which team are you supporting in the 2018 World Cup? Williams got three code violations, two of which Williams disagreed with.

"How dare you insinuate that I was cheating?" All good umpires in every sport understand that the heart of their job is to help temper the moment, to turn the dial down, not up, and to be quiet stewards of the event rather than to let their own temper play a role in determining the outcome. I was just trying to focus on myself at that time.' You acknowledged the crowd one time when you walked out, were pretty focused after that. "I have a daughter and I stand for what's right".

"Thank you, @serenawilliams, for calling out this double standard". "I mean, he's never taken a game from a man because he said thief".

Asked if she was prepared for the reception she would receive as the nation's first Grand Slam victor, Osaka said: "Apparently not, because people keep asking me that". "Ramos had rescued his ego and, in the act, taken something from Williams and Osaka that they can never get back".

"You will never be on another court of mine as long as you live". You are a liar. "Sadly that wasn't to be, and the "thief" accusation is not one any chair umpire on any court should ignore". Give me my apology. "This has happened to me too many times". (Williams' coach later admitted to coaching Williams, although he doesn't believe she saw him.) Williams reacted strongly to the accusation. "So congratulations, Naomi! No more booing". I don't want to do questions.

The money will go to the International Tennis Federation's Grand Slam Development Fund. 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. "It's been tough here for me".

"I just feel like I had a lot of emotions", Osaka said, "so I had to kind of categorize what was which emotion".

Serena Williams vs Anastasija Sevastova: US Open semifinal preview and prediction
Cilic recovered to force a decider but Nishikori edged through 2-6 6-4 7-6 (7-5) 4-6 6-4 in four hours eight minutes. The 20-year-old said she was nervous and claimed to be "freaking out inside", though it certainly never showed.

"I just texted Patrick, like, 'What is he talking about?'" Williams told reporters.

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

"I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief, because I thought he took a game from me", Williams said.

Liam Broady, the current British No.4, praised the umpire for his handling of the situation.

"I cannot name him a thief as a result of he took my level".

"You shouldn't talk to anybody in this way whether they're an umpire or person on the street".

It is not the first time that Serena has run into trouble with officials at Flushing Meadows.

She earned £1.43m ($1.85m) for reaching the tournament final.
