  • Final Countdown- US Open 2018

When a second code violation for racquet abuse was handed out to her - along with a point penalty - Williams exploded. When he refused, she called him a thief for "stealing" a point from her.

Later on, the star said she would continue to work hard because that's what she has always done. She later insisted that Ramos would "never, ever be on another court of mine as long as you live..."

But Williams also showed clearly that the last thing she wanted to do was take away from Osaka's moment.

Osaka sealed her first major with a thumping serve out wide.

Williams was looking to win her 24th Grand Slam singles title, which would have tied her with Australia's Margaret Court for the all-time record.

But Osaka was somehow able to keep her composure and she closed out the victory with Williams still unable to gather herself.

Fish said: "What a wild US Open for the Ref's". Let's not boo any more. Osaka joked about her poor skills with the sport on Instagram. Additionally, she has been fined $4,000 for being warned for coaching and $3,000 for breaking her racket.

Serena Williams lost the U.S. Open final Saturday in a match that left victor Naomi Osaka in tears and is still inspiring reflection and criticism a day later. And you stole a point from me.

Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, was later fined a total of £13,156 for her offences.

A match with history at stake for both players got off to a tense start.

Williams began the final by taking a 1-0 advantage, before dropping five consecutive points to Osaka in the first set.

After a confident hold punctuated by a 106 miles per hour ace Osaka broke again to lead 4-1, silencing the crowd.

They came to life again as Williams gained her first break chance, which Osaka saved with a 117 miles per hour service victor.

After the final, Williams said more about the double standard. But then when I hugged her at the net.

Williams was furious when she was given a coaching violation early in the second set after a hand gesture from her coach Patrick Mouratoglou, telling Ramos she would rather lose than cheat.

But not for Osaka, who claimed to not even hear the interactions between Williams and Ramos.

Osaka, also in tears, said: "I know everyone was cheering for her and I'm sorry it had to end like this". Williams told Ramos that Mouratoglou was giving her a "come on" and a thumbs up, not coaching. I haven't cheated in my life.

"He alleged that I was cheating, and I wasn't cheating", Williams told reporters later.

"At the changeover, at 4-3, Williams was assessed a third code violation for verbal abuse in the judgment of the umpire, which then required a game penalty".

Serena Williams of the U.S. reacts during the final changeover. However, the result was overshadowed by a controversial dispute between Serena Williams and chair umpire Carlos Ramos during the second set at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

"There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things", Williams said, "and because they are men, that doesn't happen".
