Serena Williams Fined $17K at US Open, Coach Admits He Was 'Coaching'

Osaka tames Keys to set up US Open final with childhood idol Serena

Although Williams' feud with Ramos appeared to overshadow Osaka's historic 6-2 6-4 victory, the two women shared an emotional moment together when Williams hugged Osaka, who considers Williams - the victor of 23 Grand Slam singles titles - her childhood idol.

Williams took it up with tournament referee Brian Earley and called the penalties unfair: "This has happened to me too many times".

The 20-year-old professional tennis player has called the match with Williams a "dream match". Her victory marks the first time a Japanese woman has won a Grand Slam event.

Which team are you supporting in the 2018 World Cup?

"I didn't receive coaching", she screamed at Ramos.

"There are men out here that do a lot worse, but because I'm a woman, because I'm a woman, you're going to take this away from me?" This is outrageous, you know? On the second serve, Tsurubuchi called a foot fault, making it a double-fault - a call rarely, if ever, seen at that stage of any match, let alone a major semifinal.

Serena Williams was given a second violation, this one for smashing her racket, and again yelled at the chair umpire who had given her a first warning for coaching.

"He never took a game from a man because he said 'thief, '" Williams said. "He said, 'I understood what you are saying, '" Williams explained after the match.

Former US Open quarter finalist Mardy Fish came out in defence of Williams, tweeting: "She wasn't even looking".

"You will never be on another court of mine as long as you live". You owe me an apology. She owns virtually every page of the record book, but she's never been one to rest on her laurels. Give me my apology.

A South Korean delegation met Kim Jong-un to set up an inter-Korean summit later this month. Soldiers march across Kim Il Sung Square during a military parade in Pyongyang.

What happened: With Williams serving at 5-6, 15-30 in the second set, she faulted on her first serve.

When it was Osaka's turn she seemed at a loss. But as she and Williams stood for the trophy presentation, the crowd loudly booed and jeered, protesting what they felt was unfair treatment leveled against Williams.

"I don't want to be rude, I don't want to do questions".

The money comes out of the $1.85 million prize money as the runner-up.

Added Williams, with a laugh: "I really hope to continue to go and play here again. It's been tough here for me". Say it. Say you're sorry.

She said on Instagram: 'First of all - and it's very important - I want to congratulate Naomi.

Serena Williams of the USA reacts during the final changeover.

The 36-year-old was insistent she had not received coaching, saying on court she "would rather lose than cheat", before accusing Ramos of sexism in her post-match press conference.

Despite her claims, her coach Patrick Mouratoglou admitted he was coaching after the match, though he insisted that Osaka's coach was doing the same thing.

Liam Broady, the current British No.4, praised the umpire for his handling of the situation. "That's the lesson I think we can all learn from this". "You shouldn't talk to anybody in this way whether they're an umpire or person on the street".
