Serena Williams Goes Off on Chair Umpire in US Open Final Loss

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

Then she asked to speak to tournament referee Brian Earley, who walked onto the court along with a Grand Slam supervisor.

In a second tweet, King said: "When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalized for it".

Famous athletes, like tennis legend Billie Jean King, expressed dismay at umpire Carlos Ramos' treatment of Williams on Twitter, writing that female players are often treated differently than male players in all kinds of sports.

Williams raged at umpire Ramos: "It was not coaching".

"I have never cheated in my life!" "I know you guys were here rooting, but let's make this the best moment we can".

In a news conference after the match, Williams, 36, said she was "fighting for women's rights" and for equality on the tennis court.

"Thank you, @serenawilliams, for calling out this double standard".

After being broken by Osaka in the second set, Williams smashed her racquet and earned herself a second code violation and a point penalty. I mean, like he's never taken a game from a man because he's said thief. Williams received a code violation for receiving coaching during the match and demanded an apology from the chair umpire, Carlos Ramos. She famously berated a line judge in her semifinal loss against Kim Clijsters in 2009 and again in her final loss against Sam Stosur in 2011.

"You will never be on another court of mine as long as you live". "And I've also been given a "soft warning" by the ump where they tell you knock it off or I will have to give you a violation". You just can't act like that I'm afraid. "Sascha was coaching every point too". She would have snared $3.8 million had she rallied to beat Naomi Osaka in Saturday's final, but she lost her cool and any chance in the second set.

Osaka notably pulled her cap over her eyes, to hide her reaction. From there Williams could not recover and Osaka claimed her victory.

It was the second Grand Slam final defeat in a row for Williams, after Wimbledon in July, as she seeks an initial major title since returning to the tour after having a baby in 2017.

"I've seen other men call other umpires several things. But I'm going to continue to fight for women". "It's been tough here for me". I know my shots. During the question period at the trophy ceremony, Selena said she didn't want to be rude, but wouldn't answer any questions. She was really nice to me, like, at the net and on the podium. I'd rather lose than have to cheat to win.' I don't need to cheat to win.

"I didn't get coaching".

The penalty lost Williams the title.

"You shouldn't talk to anybody in this way whether they're an umpire or person on the street". But she shouted as Stosur was still reaching for a backhand.

U.S. tennis great Billie Jean King has joined fans in rallying around Serena Williams after she called out a double standard in the application of rules by umpires relating to female and male players.
