Serena Williams isn't the first tennis player umpire Carlos Ramos has upset

Naomi Osaka soars into first Grand Slam final

Serena Williams absorbed a $17,000 fine in the wake of her tumultuous US Open final loss to Naomi Osaka on Sunday as debate raged over whether the code violations that sparked her meltdown were sexist.

"I was coaching but I don't think she looked at me", he said.

Williams argued with the U.S. Open officials and later told reporters that the penalty was unfair and given to her because she is a woman.

Serena Williams thought she was treated more harshly by the chair umpire in the U.S. Open final than a man would have been.

Already down a set to No. 20 Naomi Osaka, Williams was issued a violation for on-court coaching.

Briefly, Williams appeared to be working her way back into the match, breaking Osaka for the only time to go up 3-1 in the second set. "I have a daughter and I stand for what's right for her".

On-court outbursts are another fairly frequent violation in tennis and it's unfortunate that this one was compounded by the first, which was out of Williams' hands to begin with.

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.

"I will admit I have said worse and not gotten penalized", James Blake, the former top-ranked United States male tennis player, said on Twitter.

Rapper Mac Miller dead at 26
Fellow Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa and others sent their thoughts to Miller and his family shortly after the news broke Friday. In May, he was arrested for a DUI and hit and run after crashing into a power pole and fleeing the scene.

The former world number one had her second chance of the year to equal Margaret Court's long-standing grand slam record of 24 grand slams, but let her emotions get the better of her against a brilliant and calm Naomi Osaka in NY. She demanded an apology from Ramos.

'I will say it again, if it happened in the men's match, it would not happen again.

The tournament referee's office fined the former world number one $10,000 for the "verbal abuse" of Ramos, $4,000 for being warned for coaching and $3,000 for smashing her racket.

Davenport believes in-match guidance from coaches, which is allowed on the WTA Tour but not in grand slams, is widespread in majors and Ramos could have explained he was targeting Mouratoglou with his first code violation and not Williams. She received a penalty point for the second violation. This made the 36-year-old Williams even more upset, leading to her further chastising Ramos - including calling him a "thief".

"The chair umpires nearly never call it so to call it in a grand slam final against a player that's never really had it before, it just seemed odd". "I know you guys were here rooting, but let's make this the best moment we can".

Osaka had six aces compared to Williams' three aces in the final. I'd rather lose... I've never cheated in my life. "But I'm going to continue to fight for women".

"For me it blows my mind.This is outrageous". She is the first Japanese player to win the U.S. Open.

Williams was gracious as Osaka wrapped up her first Grad Slam title, as she urged the crowd at Arthur Ashe stadium to applaud the newly crowned champion.
