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

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

Earlier in the match, Ramos handed down a warning for coaching following hand gestures from Williams' coach Patrick Mouratoglou.

In incredible scenes at Flushing Meadows on Saturday, Williams, aiming to equal Court's record of grand slam triumphs, received a series of code violations en route to a 6-2 6-4 defeat to her 20-year-old opponent.

Williams lost after receiving multiple penalties from Chair Umpire Carlos Ramos - including a point penalty for breaking her racket, and then a game penalty for arguing with Ramos and calling him a "thief". "He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief".

After hearing Serena's press conference, Wilson slammed the 23-time Grand Slam champion once again saying "she is doing a awful disservice to women's rights".

Meanwhile, Mouratoglou took to Twitter to also take aim at Ramos. "I'd rather lose. I'm just letting you know", she said in protest to Ramos' decision. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep. You owe me an apology. I have a daughter and I stand for what's right for her. "Maybe in a few days I'll realize what I've done", said Osaka, adding that the noise was so great in Arthur Ashe Stadium and her focus so single-minded that she wasn't fully aware of the escalating controversy.

"So for me, I'm always going to remember the Serena that I love", Osaka said. First grand slam, totally intimidated and they're booing her.

"I don't cheat to win".

Six-time US Open victor Williams, who remains one short of Margaret Court's record haul of 24 major singles titles, was initially disgusted after receiving a coaching violation from the umpire during the first set.

After Osaka broke for a 4-3 lead Williams continued her verbal charge on Ramos, who docked her a game for a third violation that put Osaka up 5-3.

"For me it blows my mind.This is outrageous". "I know you guys were here rooting, but let´s make this the best moment we can".

He said Osaka's coach, Sascha Bajin, was also giving advice to his player.

This is what officials are saying following a dramatic outburst by Serena Williams at the US Open women's final.

Former professional tennis player James Blake admits that he has said worst things than Williams during a match and escaped penalty.

Both Williams and Osaka likely wish the officiating had gone a bit differently on Saturday, but thankfully, there's little doubt that these two will meet again on the court in a critical match in the near future.

"The penalty for the coaching incident wasn't that harsh".

"Serena is a champion & doesn't deserve it - the same way that Naomi is a champion & doesn't deserve this atmosphere for her first GS title!" "She felt she was wronged".

Others, however, felt that the umpire had been right to issue the violations and questioned Williams' outburst.

Fans were determined to see the positive, praising Williams and Osaka for their conduct in standing up for each other.
