Serena Williams gets fined after US Open final outburst!

The 23-time Grand Slam champion has faced racist attacks for most of her career, and after the match Saturday, she said she believes sexism is rampant in the sport.

"I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff".

Naomi Osaka, who represents Japan, beat Williams in the final of the grand slam with a score of 6-2, 6-4.

After Williams" "catsuit' was banned at the French Open in August, the athlete is now dealing with the policing of her words in addition to her clothing.

"I think that if it was a man in [Serena's] position, it would have been absolutely different", she adds. Not only did Williams have to bear the brunt of the umpire's decision, but she also had to accept that it was a violation not of her doing.

Williams was incensed in the first instance when Ramos assessed her a code violation for receiving coaching from her box, although coach Patrick Mouratoglou admitted in an interview with ESPN that he was trying to advise her with a hand gesture and said that all coaches do it. For me to say "thief" and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark.

Many pundits called out what they labelled as "sexism" towards Williams from the umpire.

King, who is 74 years old, wrote: "Several things went very wrong during the US Open Women's Finals today".

Retired US tennis star Andy Roddick tweeted, "I've regrettably said worse and I've never gotten a game penalty".

The Women's Tennis Association and the U.S. Tennis Association both sent out statements supporting Williams during the loss. "Maybe they'll do us right in Australia since the USA couldn't do me right". These men all berated chair umpires, famously so.

Female tennis players have also been voicing their support for Williams, including Victoria Azarenka. "I think there has to be some consistency across the board".

Players cannot receive coaching during a Grand Slam match (including the warm-up). Losing the second set meant losing the match, and she did. But as you'll see, she was super chill about it, even fetching her own balls, and jogging to do it because she knew we were rolling.

"Umpire Mohamed Lahyani came down from his chair and gave Kyrgios a pep talk, telling him "I want you to do well", "don't tank" and all the players were upset with that, so there was a strict law put in force for the rest of the tournament where chair umpires were not allowed to talk to players as well as following the code and that's what Ramos did throughout the match".

Williams was one of only two women punished for on-court coaching, alongside Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova, while no men were penalised for this offence.
