Williams argues with chair umpire; Osaka wins US Open final

Williams and Sevastova shake hands at the net after their match

Out on court, an unsettled Williams protested her innocence, telling Ramos: "I don't cheat to win". Williams quickly tried to squash that ridiculous notion, but the ump continued to make accusations, and now we have plenty of entertaining audio from it all. I shouldn't really think of her as my idol.

Osaka apologized to the crowd.

Responding, Williams said: "I literally just heard that too. I just wanted to say thank you for watching the match", she said.

Osaka's development, especially her defensive abilities and court sense, has come under the tutelage of Sascha Bajin, who formerly worked as a hitting partner for Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki. I've never cheated, and you owe me an apology. There was no thumbs-up sign. I just feel like not only is my future bright, even though I'm not a spring chicken, but I still have a very, very bright future. He also said everyone does it and usually is not called for it.

"To lose a game for saying that is not fair", Williams said.

Upon losing her serve, Serena smashed her racket in anger that led to the umpire docking a point off her.

BA apologised in July after technology issues caused dozens of its flights to and from London's Heathrow Airport to be cancelled. Reportedly, travel and passport details have not been breached. 'We have notified the police and relevant authorities'.

Williams stood her ground after the match and didn't hold back then, either.

While serving at 3-3 Williams argued with the umpire who had ruled multiple times she was receiving coaching from her box. I'm not a Serena fan: I'm just a tennis player playing another tennis player.

Serena Williams choked back tears as she contemplated the year-long journey that has taken her from fighting for her life in a hospital bed to the verge of history. I feel like it's more fun on the big stages.

The 36-year-old's controversy overshadowed what was an historic Grand Slam victory for Japanese star Naomi Osaka, and many were outraged at Williams' professional conduct. "I love you (Serena)". Like the kid grows up with you and you're looking at the kid and you're like, "Wow I'm proud of you".

Under fire from Williams, the umpire handed her the game penalty advancing the score to 5-3 in Osaka's favor and leaving the American serving to stay in the match. And that's when she called him a "thief", prompting a code violation for verbal abuse.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion said she would continue to fight for gender equality in the sport and addressed the first-round penalty given to Alize Cornet for changing her shirt on the court.

The headlines were supposed to be about Williams' bid for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title and Osaka trying to become Japan's first Slam victor, but instead Williams' argument with umpire Carlos Ramos that escalated dominated the match.

This match will surely go down as one of the most controversial Grand Slam finals of all time.

Naomi Osaka has won the first set over Serena Williams in the U.S. Open women's final, 6-2.

Williams streaked into the US Open having won the Australian Open and Wimbledon that year and chasing a second straight title in Flushing Meadows.

In a statement released shortly after, the WTA said, "There are matters that need to be looked into that took place during the match". Osaka had made clear beforehand how delighted she was to take on Williams in the final.

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