Serena Williams Fell To Naomi Osaka In A Tense US Open Final

Serena's battle with umpire ignites debate on Twitter

Commenting on the conversation between Serena and the umpire Carlos Ramos, Osaka said: 'The crowd was really noisy, so I really didn't hear. He said so after the match (although Williams was adamant they don't have any established signals). The U.S. Tennis Assn. later apologized to Williams for umpire Mariana Alves' overruling the linesperson on a call in which the linesperson had been correct.

Williams burst into tears, trying to correct her unfortunate performance during the match, in which she failed to achieve her twenty-fourth Grand Slam title.

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

Former Australian netball captain Liz Ellis told Sports Sunday that Williams may have tarnished her legacy after her epic meltdown. Lahyani climbed out of his chair during a changeover, stood with hands on knees, and spoke to Kyrgios, saying, among other things, "I want to help you". As Osaka stood on the winner's podium after the match, crowd members booed.

Her third code violation of the match also cost her a game, putting Osaka on the brink of what would be a 6-2, 6-4 victory that made her the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam title.

Williams said the incident strengthened her belief that women players are treated differently to their male counterparts in the sport.

"I know she was frustrated by the way the game ended, but the way she took a step forward after the final and gave Naomi all the credit says a lot in her favour", she added.

She later accused him of sexism, saying: "He's never taken a game from a man because they said "thief".

"In what was a blatantly racist and sexist move, tennis umpire Carlos Ramos unfairly penalized Serena Williams in an abhorrent display of male dominance and discrimination".

"I just feel like the fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions, and that want to express themselves, and want to be a strong woman". We don't have any code and I know you don't know that, and I understand why you may have thought that was coaching, but I'm telling you it's not.

Williams asked what she'll tell her daughter, Olympia, about what happened Saturday. To lose a game for saying that, it's not fair. "It's because I am a woman, and that's not right". "It's the most cliched things you could think of, always things that make you go "Ugh".
