Williams was initially penalised by Ramos for receiving instructions from her coach Patrick Mouratoglou, who was sat in the stands.

While winding up a tour of Asia with Under Armour, he was asked about Serena Williams's meltdown when an incident with the chair umpire escalated during the U.S. Open women's championship Saturday.

US Open women's champion Naomi Osaka has revealed that Serena Williams told her she was proud of her before reassuring her that fans weren't booing her after their controversial final at Flushing Meadows.

Clay Travis heavily refutes Serena's claims and called out the media for openly accepting and promoting extremely delicate and inflammable accusations that immorally stir up the worst parts of our society, especially when baseless in nature.

"You're told just to turn around and try to focus so I tried to do that but in my mind I really wanted to know what was going on".

Del Potro is up against Novak Djokovic in the final , which will decide the victor of the last Grand Slam of the year. It all bothered Djokovic, who started yelling and gesturing toward the seats.

No matter what your opinions are on the drama surrounding Osaka's win, everyone can agree that life is pretty sweet for her right now.

Williams, who has since been fined $17,000 by the United States Tennis Association for the violations, vigorously disputed each of them during the match.

The WTA also issued a statement from CEO Steve Simon calling for "no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men versus women" and noting, "We do not believe this was done [in the final]".

There are now discussions about boycotting Williams' matches between a group of umpires that lack a body to represent their interests.

A few games later, Williams received another warning, this time for smashing her racket, and that second violation automatically cost her a point, leading to more arguing.

But ahead of the Raiders' first game of the season, head coach Jon Gruden had some choice words about Mack's holdout in Oakland. ESPN's Josina Anderson, however, was able to get a little bit of information out of someone in Green Bay or close to Rodgers.

The anonymous source believes they have not been supported by the USTA on multiple occasions, adding that Ramos was "thrown to the wolves for simply doing his job and was not willing to be abused for it". Williams then destroyed her tennis racquet which led to a point deduction. "I guess when we look up to our heroes, we expect the very best from them at all times but she is human", Keothavong told Sky Sports' Sportswomen.

Widmaier said the feeling at USTA is that there needs to be a push to ensure consistency in the application of the rules, including coaching violations and shirt changes by women players.

Since the match, many have spoken about the ways that the racism has affected how Williams has been treated, post-match.
