Serena Williams blows her top in US Open final

The Almighty GOAT Serena Williams Is Through To Her 9th US Open Final

Serena Williams discusses a coaching violation warning given by umpire Carlos Ramos.

Neither Williams nor her vocal fans initially realised she had been given either the point or game penalty, and the boos and jeers on the second occasion were deafening. To hear more about this, we're joined now by NPR sports correspondent Tom Goldman.

"Thank you to the crowd, you really are the best in the world. I stand for what's right", insisted Williams. "He was cool. He was like, 'I get it.' We were on the same page, we understood each other". "I'm really glad I was able to do that". "Second, we all know that all the coaches coach at every match, all year long, from the first of January all the way to the 31st of December". Williams was serving to force a tiebreaker at 5-6 in the second set when she was called for a foot fault on a second serve, giving Clijsters double match point.

He also said that Ramos frequently works men's matches, but does not penalize players like Rafael Nadal for breaking the on-court coaching as often.

Osaka, who grew up in NY, was up next in what was a hard spot for a less experienced player: "I know that everyone was cheering for her and I'm sorry it had to end like this", she said.

The 36-year-old was controversially hit with three code violations during the freakish final, as she was docked for coaching, conduct and verbal abuse violations.

While serving at 3-3 Williams argued with the umpire who had ruled multiple times she was receiving coaching from her box.

" You owe me an apology". He refused and she called him a thief for stealing a point from her in a championship match. He punished her a game.




"Everyone who was born in Osaka, their last name is Osaka".

Osaka is one of several young mixed-race athletes who are challenging Japan's traditional self-image as a racially homogenous country, including sprinter Asuka Cambridge and baseball player Yu Darvish and she's been widely celebrated by local media. It was weird and surreal. All in all, it's unfortunate Osaka's victory will be overshadowed by this controversy.

Ramos called both players over to explain his ruling, and Williams began laughing, saying: "Are you kidding me?" "Theres a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things and because they are men, that doesnt happen".

There have been a series of recent happenings that illustrate the ways in which tennis does do things differently for men and women.

Then her frustration boiled over.

"At the same time, I feel like even though I should enjoy this moment, I should still think of it as another match", Osaka said. But what she wasn't taking into account, in the umpire's mind, this was an accumulation of penalties.

He responded by issuing a third code violation, which results in a lost game.
