Quick Rundown of What Happened Between Serena and the Umpire

During Saturday's final match, Williams was given three code violations by umpire Carlos Ramos, who first accused the tennis player of getting coached, then cited her for smashing her racket, and finally admonished her for verbal abuse after Williams called Ramos a thief for docking her points. Later in the same set, Ramos cited her for breaking her racket in frustration, and when she called him a thief for the resulting penalty that cost her a point, he issued a third violation that cost her a game. Serena denied seeing him.

But her triumph was reduced to nearly a side note as Williams railed about her treatment, accusing the US Open of being out to get her.

"I have my personal opinion that maybe the chair umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit, especially in a Grand Slam final", he said.

The other issue is whether or not the umpire was being sexist, as many male tennis players have been coached and said way worse things to umpires with only warnings being issued.

"The WTA believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men versus women", Simon said in a statement. "We do not believe that this was done".

Williams's second-set meltdown overshadowed Naomi Osaka's 6-2, 6-4 victory, which made the 20-year-old the first Japanese to win a Grand Slam title.

"We already talked. We have a great relationship", Williams said of Giudicelli last month, laughing as she added, "Everything is fine, guys". Harlow read from none that disputed Williams' point of view or even criticized her behavior.

BBC tennis presenter Sue Barker, who said: "I've sat courtside watching the men ranting at umpires and they haven't been given a violation". "I've seen it happen a few times where she starts to bully the situation and try to intimidate her opponents a little bit and she comes with these outbursts". "We have more work to do with women's equality", singer, actress and television personality Rowland told The Post at the Prabal Gurung fashion show on Sunday. I still think about that line once a week.

Williams, who has dealt with body shaming and even criticism over her dark features, took the high road and said she was not upset. When are you going to give me my apology?

Players cannot receive coaching during a Grand Slam match (including the warm-up).

Azarenka, former US Open champion, tweeted: "If it was a men's match, this wouldn't happen like this".
