Serena Williams Fined $17,000 For Violations At US Open

Williams Keys hoping to make it an American US Open final

Amid all the drama, Osaka remained composed as she became Japan's first victor of a Slam.

In the wake of Osaka's first Grand Slam triumph, there were messages of support for Williams as well as those condemning her behaviour and agreeing with the umpire's calls.

The deduction enraged Williams and she screamed at Ramos at the next changeover, drawing the game penalty after she called him a thief.

Williams first disputed a warning for coaching, was given a point penalty for smashing a racket and then was handed a game violation after unleashing a torrid volley of abuse at Ramos, calling him a "liar and a thief".

Osaka's power, speed and ability to shut out the distractions allowed her to prevail over Williams, but the match will long be remembered for the freakish turn it took during the second set when the 23-time Grand Slam champion unleashed a furious rant at chair umpire Carlos Ramos.

During the second game of that set, Willams received a violation from Ramos for receiving coaching from Patrick Mouratoglou, who had made a motion from the stands that appeared to instruct Williams to go to the net more frequently. Williams told Ramos. "You owe me an apology". She briefly disputed that ruling, saying cheating "is the one thing I've never done, ever".

"To lose a game for saying that is not fair", Williams said, and raised the idea that Ramos was being sexist: "There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things and because they are men, that doesn't happen". 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.

On Twitter, some users wrote that the treatment of Williams as a woman, particularly a woman of colour, was especially egregious.

GoFundMe says they will give Johnny Bobbitt $400,000
The story initially led to appearances for Bobbitt and McClure on national TV programs as well as an interview by the BBC. But Bobbitt's attorney, Christopher Fallon, informed Dow that his client might not be able to accommodate the request.

Former tennis star Billie Jean King, whose life story and gender equality activism was recently chronicled in the film Battle of the Sexes, said the situation exemplifies a "double standard". "When a man does the same, he's 'outspoken" and there are no repercussions". "More voices are needed to do the same".

For Christine Brennan, a CNN sports analyst, the clashes between Williams and the umpire show that women are not being treated equally in the tennis world. "We all know it".

Chair umpires typically receive gifts during trophy presentations, but Ramos was notably absent for the ceremony. Commercials have been made.

The penalty lost Williams the title. History has said, no. It all dates back to 2004, when an incorrect call during a quarterfinal loss to Jennifer Capriati was cited as the main reason for the introduction of replay technology in tennis. Both she and Williams were in tears.

"It's sad for the sport when a player tries to become bigger than the rules".

"When I step on the court, I'm not a Serena fan - I'm just a tennis player playing another tennis player". Male players are shirtless during matches all the time, including Novak Djokovic in a match that same day, as CNN reports.

The former French Open victor added that "tennis is the loser". "Not at all. He's always been a great umpire", she said.

In her post-match interview, Williams was asked how she would explain "what happened out there tonight" and how she could have "handled it differently" to her daughter-a question players like McEnroe were never asked about their children.
