I didn't know what was happening, says Osaka

Osaka tames Keys to set up US Open final with childhood idol Serena

Following the match, Williams complained to reporters that the umpire's ruling was outright sexist.

When Williams approached Ramos the second time, for instance, she did not seem to be aware of her second violation, which means she was also not aware that she was one violation away from forfeiting a game.

That's the challenge tennis player Serena Williams was recently faced.

Carlos Ramos' decision-making, which saw Williams docked a point and then a game over a row sparked by a warning for coaching, has been met with support and criticism. "I'd rather lose", she told the umpire. Even though her coach has admitted to coaching, Williams has made it clear that she did not receive any coaching. Second time in this US Open and third time for Serena in a US Open Final. Williams told Ramos. "You owe me an apology". "You are the liar", said Williams. "Maybe it didn't work out for me, but it's going to work out for the next person". "I'm really grateful I was able to play with you".

Osaka credits 36-year-old Williams as her idol and inspiration. You stole a point from me. "You're a thief, too". This prompted a heated dialogue with the umpire Carlos Ramos. I have never cheated in my life. "This is not fair", she said.

"There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things, but because they're men that (punishment) doesn't happen to them. But I'm going to continue to fight for women", she said. "That is not right". I have a daughter and I stand for what's right for her.

"For me it blows my mind.This is outrageous".

"I was coaching but I don't think she looked at me", Mouratoglou said.

"Always something happens to me here", she huffed at tournament referee Brian Earley, summoned to the court after she failed to get satisfaction from Ramos. "#Champion #usopen" - Billie Jean King.

USTA chairwoman Katrina Adams released a statement Saturday night saying Williams actually showed "a great deal of class and sportsmanship" during the ceremony.

"When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalized for it", King wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile there has been further debate over Williams' charge that she had been a victim of sexism from the chair.

Others widely shared Sally Jenkin's op-ed in the Washington Post, in which she said that the umpire "abused his authority".

She described the awarding of penalties for relatively minor infractions as "pure pettiness" and an "abuse of power". Williams attempted to comfort Osaka before addressing the booing crowd.

On-court outbursts are another fairly frequent violation in tennis and it's unfortunate that this one was compounded by the first, which was out of Williams' hands to begin with.

She believed that her male counterparts frequently harassed the chair umpires without ramifications and because she is a woman, she received a harsher penalty. Williams had consecutive double faults later in the set and smashed her racquet on the court. He wasn't going to let a woman talk to him that way.
