Serena Williams Fined $17000 For US Open Controversy

After the match, Williams was fined a total of US$17,000: US$10,000 for verbal abuse, the largest single fine of the U.S. Open so far; US$4,000 for the coaching violation; and US$3,000 for racket abuse.

Williams was warned for coaching, then docked a point for smashing a racket before Ramos penalised her a game after she called him a liar and a thief.

In the wake of Osaka's first Grand Slam triumph, there were messages of support for Williams as well as those condemning her behaviour and agreeing with the umpire's calls. Osaka's victory marked an impressive milestone.

Simon said: "Yesterday brought to the forefront the question of whether different standards are applied to men and women in the officiating of matches".

There are separate categories for coaching ("Communications of any kind, audible or visible, between a player and a coach may be construed as coaching") and for abuse of rackets or equipment.

"Yes, I was coaching just like everybody else".

Before Saturday's US Open women's final match, it looked like the tournament's biggest meltdown would belong to Ozzie Nick Kyrgios. Furthermore, Serena didn't even see my gestures. To say that she's fighting for women's rights when what she is, is a bad sport.

Trey Burton, now a Chicago Bear after making the famous Super Bowl throw to Foles, was a fan regardless of the inspiration. Jenkins is among the Eagles players who have met with state representatives to push for criminal justice reform.

"We also think the issue of coaching needs to be addressed and should be allowed across the sport", Simon said. Mari, who suffered an injury early in her career, is now ranked 367 by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA). "When a man does the same, he's "outspoken" & and there are no repercussions".

National Organization of Women president Toni Van Pelt weighed in with a statement calling for the USTA to sever any ties to Ramos for "a blatantly racist and sexist move".

And despite this, a rabid 14 000 crowd made up overwhelmingly of Williams' fans booed the unfortunate and impeccable Ramos for doing his job properly instead by making exceptions for Williams because of who she was. She briefly disputed that ruling, saying cheating "is the one thing I've never done, ever" - although afterward, her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, acknowledged he was trying to send Williams a signal.

"I've seen other men call other umpires several things", she said.

"She's doing a awful disservice to women's rights, to the #metoo movement, to gender equality", AFL and sports commentator Caroline Wilson said on ABC's Offsiders.

It tied for the second-highest in ESPN's entire US Open history (225 telecasts starting in 2009, exclusivity since 2015) with the 2015 Men's Championship (Novak Djokovic vs. Roger Federer). Everyone was in a very awkward situation. Chair umpires use similar terminology among themselves, and Ramos has completed a "Golden Slam" by being in the chair for men's singles finals at all four Grand Slam tournaments and at the 2012 men's Olympic singles final between Andy Murray and Roger Federer.
