Serena Williams throws Coach under the Bus

Lynn Welch right of South Portland umpired at all four Grand Slams during her long career as a tennis official and found it hard to take a side during the U.S. Open controversy between Serena Williams and umpire Carlos Ramos

Williams said she had not seen the Frenchman make a gesture and labelled his subsequent admission "a really confusing moment".

Williams, who would have equalled Margaret Court's record with a 24th grand slam title had she won at Flushing Meadows, added that she was keen to move on from the incidents.

And ahead of the broadcast, Lisa revealed things took an awkward turn and "got sticky" when she asked the sportswoman, 36, about her argument at the US Open.

While Williams has firmly and consistently denied any allegations that coaching took place during the final, her own coach has remarkably opposed this view, claiming that he was giving her instructions throughout the match.

Williams touched on her decision to play in a tutu after being barred from wearing her polarising "black panther" outfit.

"I got in the auto, and Olympia was in the vehicle", she told Mia Freedman in an episode of "No Filter" recorded just three days after the finals.

"So you said you made a motion, now you told people that you're coaching me".

Following the final she was fined $17,000 (£13,100) for the code violations.

Williams received her first code violation for coaching before things quickly deteriorated after that, with Ramos issuing her a second for smashing her racquet and then a third for abusing him in which she called him a "thief" and accused him of treating her differently to male players.

The Channel 10 star snagged a one-on-one chat with the 23-time grand slam champ days after her defeat to Naomi Osaka.

Serena Williams has opened up on her infamous US Open meltdown, saying she's doing "okay, not great" and that her young daughter Olympia brought immediate perspective to the situation.

"I just don't understand what he was talking about because I asked him, you weren't coaching, we don't have signals, we've never had signals - and he said he made a motion", she told The Sunday Project. That doesn't make sense.

"But I'm just trying to recover from that and move on". "Why would you say that?" I think we're all cognizant of the fact that three strikes and you're going to get a game penalty.

"I was on the other side".
