Patrick Mouratoglou admits to coaching Serena during finals

Serena Williams in action. More

Ramos saw it and issued Williams the first of three code violations she received in her 6-2, 6-4 loss to Naomi Osaka.

She was given a second violation for smashing her racquet, and again yelled at the chair umpire who had given her the first warning.

She was then docked a point for a second violation when she smashed her racket.

Osaka's development, especially her defensive abilities and court sense, has come under the tutelage of Sascha Bajin, who formerly worked as a hitting partner for Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki.

Williams held, but Osaka was able to do the same in her next service game to win the set and the match.

Williams also pleaded her case to tournament referee Brian Earley and supervisor Donna Kelso, having demanded the presence of the officials on court.

"I can understand how you made that thought but I don't cheat". "You are the liar!"

She resumed arguing with Ramos later, saying, "You stole a point from me". Say it. Say you're sorry. "She continues to inspire, because she continues to strive to be the best".

She cried even more on the podium - as the crowd booed throughout the trophy ceremony, she pulled her hat down over her eyes, and her opponent put her arms round her in an effort to comfort her.

"I don't want to be rude".

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. I shouldn't really think of her as my idol. "Naomi is a deserving champion and Serena at all times plays with class and makes us proud". "No more booing. Let's be positive".

"You're attacking my character", she said. I just want to say thank you for watching the match.

John Mulaney , Patton Oswalt and Bo Burnham were also among those who had threatened a boycott. "Sorry, @ NewYorker . Update: The New Yorker Festival has dropped Steve Bannon from its lineup amid backlash.

"It was always my dream to play Serena in the U.S. Open finals..."

"I just texted Patrick, like, 'What is he talking about?'" Williams told reporters.

After the match Mouratoglou admitted to Pam Shriver on ESPN TV that he was coaching. He assessed what's called a coaching warning, which carries a point penalty. Everyone is doing it 100% of the time. Not a big deal. "She will struggle to get back from this". "I couldn't have predicted this at all", said Serena.

"I'm honest, I was coaching". Ramos interpreted the remark as verbal abuse, and awarded a game to Osaka, putting the eventual victor one game away from victory.

The 36-year-old Williams took umbrage with the statement, insisting that her coach simply gave her a thumbs up as a sign of support and encouragement.

"Do you know how many other men do things that are much worse than that, this is not fair".

Serena Williams's husband Alexis Ohanian celebrated her return to the US Open final with a touching Twitter tribute interspersing video of her on-court exploits and the first days of their daughter Olympia a year ago.

"Then I had a good conversation with him".

"There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things and because they're a man, that doesn't happen to them". It blows my mind.

"I didn't know what was going on, I was just trying to focus".

"Should they be allowed have an influence on the result of a match?"
