US Open champion Naomi Osaka reveals what Serena Williams told her

14 September 2018, 01:26 | Pamela Mathis

We just made life hard for umpires everywhere. We are now hyper-aware of the injustices and inequities of the world, of which sport isn't immune.

William's match with 20-year-old Naomi Osaka of Japan was clouded with controversy after Ramos issued a code violation to Williams during play, saying she had received coaching during the match - a point Williams strongly denied.

Williams has split opinion around the world with her behaviour during the straight-sets defeat to Naomi Osaka.

Fresh from pocketing a $3.8 million check from winning the US Open on Saturday, Osaka is now set to pen a clothing deal with the German sports manufacturing giant that could see her take on Williams, the woman she defeated to win the title, for her Forbes number one highest-paid female athlete ranking. "Coaching on every point should be allowed in tennis". In comparison, I never saw (Rafael) Nadal shouting like that with an umpire. You are the best player at the end of this event and because of the turn of events with the crowd and the booing and everything, it wasn't the way - that was the outcome I was referring to. He did what he had to do in that match, because she overcame the limit.

The 36-year-old had already had a point penalty for smashing her racquet and a code violation for coaching when she was penalised further for calling Ramos a "thief" and a "liar" in NY. Her third violation, for calling the umpire Carlos Ramos a "thief", cost her a game.

Ramos slapped Williams with several penalties with accompanying fines totaling $17,000 after she asserted herself and challenged the umpire for saying she was being coached during the game. "I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality". And for me to say "thief" and for him to take a game?

"Look, I don't want this to come out the wrong way", Johnson said.

"They are always with their dogs behind, their team", she said. For me, it blows my mind. "The way Serena handled the situation, I think she handled it with such grace and class". "She's passionate. She was speaking out".

Williams on the other hand said she will continue to fight against sexism and the double-standards that favors male, mostly white players. She was one of the main reasons that tennis made a decision to investigate video replay technology on the courts after several bad calls went against her in the 2004 US Open quarterfinals, she has been described as "scary" to look at by the president of the Russian Tennis Federation, she has been handed penalties that wouldn't otherwise have been given to men.
