Serena Williams fined $17,000 for US Open meltdown

Serena fined $17000 after US Open final outburst

"When a man does the same, he's "outspoken" & and there are no repercussions", King tweeted late Saturday. Thank you, @serenawilliams, for calling out this double standard.

"She is the voice for so many of us", Rowland said.

But Date said Osaka's triumph in her first Grand Slam final was "amazing".

To receive coaching while on court is categorically forbidden in the rules of grand slam tennis. Players chase the career Grand Slam by trying to win all four of the major titles. "As she becomes a better player, I would like her to become a better person", he said.

Williams received three code violations from Ramos during the match: one for verbally abusing him, another for abusing her racket, and - crucially - one for receiving coaching from her coach Patrick Mouratoglou who was sitting in the stands.

"The sport has to really get itself sorted out on what it does with coaching".

Williams, who is no stranger to sexism in the tennis world, eventually lost the winning title to newcomer Naomi Osaka on Saturday.

Serena Williams of the United States of America argues tournament official Brian Earley while playing Naomi Osaka of Japan in the women's final on day thirteen of the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The first concerned the match between Andy Murray and Fernando Verdasco, where Murray complained to officials that Verdasco had illegitimately conversed with his coach during an "extreme heat" break.

The fallout comes as the firm is under renewed scrutiny due to the erratic behaviour of Mr Musk . They have fallen about 18% since Musk's tweet on taking the company private on 7 August.

Then, he docked her an entire game after she called him a "thief" for taking that point from her. That triggered a third violation, which resulted in a game penalty that gave Osaka a 5-3 lead. "I've been going all over the place", said Osaka, describing the aftermath of her dominant 6-2, 6-4 victory over Williams.

The WTA is calling for equal treatment of all tennis players and coaching to be allowed across the sport after critics inside and outside of tennis argued that she was not treated the same as some male players.

Williams was fined a total of $17,000, which is deducted from her prize money of $1.85 million as the tournament's runner-up, according to Associated Press.

That is exactly how a champion should behave because she wanted it so badly.

However, Richard Ings, a former professional chair umpire who also used to be the ATP Tour Executive Vice-President, Rules and Competition, felt it was Williams who needed to apologise.

Others tried to pick holes in the authenticity of the cartoon, such as Williams never having actually jumped into the air and onto her racket during her tirade.

However, he said he wasn't sure sexism was at the root of Ramos's decisions. He saw violations and he had the courage of his convictions to call them when he saw them.

Djokovic noted that it was an "awkward situation" for both competitors and "tough" for the umpire. At the 1990 Australian Open he got his first warning for intimidating a lineswoman who called his ball out.
