During one of several intense exchanges with U.S. Open officials in her finals loss to first-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka, Serena Williams argued she was being treated differently because she's a woman after calling the chair umpire a "thief".
Naomi Osaka claimed her first Grand Slam title on Saturday after defeating Serena Williams 6-2, 6-4, in the final of the U.S. Open. This includes $4,000 for a coaching violation, $3,000 for slamming her racket and $10,000 for the supposed "verbal abuse". Even though her coach has admitted to coaching, Williams has made it clear that she did not receive any coaching.
" I don't cheat to win!"
Williams, who was under the impression the first violation had been rescinded, returned to Ramos to seek an apology for saying she had received coaching earlier. She later insisted that Ramos would "never, ever be on another court of mine as long as you live..."
"'This is your coach, who I say visibly give you signals".

It comes just weeks after Hurricane Lane brought "almost biblical rains" to the Big Island and also left parts of Oahu flooded. At its present course and speed, the center of Florence will likely approach the SC or Georgia coastline on Thursday or Friday.
'This is unbelievable. Every team I play here I have problems.
Having been docked a game, she lost the second set, and was booed by the crowds during the trophy ceremony.
Reaction on social media largely focused on the chair umpire, Carlos Ramos, for penalizing Williams for behaviour that critics said would ordinarily result in just a warning for other players.
"I've said far worse", McEnroe, a seven-times Grand Slam singles victor, said on ESPN.
"I just want to tell you guys she played well. He was cool. He was like, 'I get it.' We were on the same page, we understood each other". And let's not boo anymore.
The call also resonated after another double standard revealed in the U.S. Open two weeks ago when French player Alize Cornet reversed her backwards shirt on the court, temporarily revealing her black sports bra, resulting in a code violation.
After the match, Williams was asked if there was anything she would have changed about the game. Watch select excerpts above. Osaka said. "Everyone knows this". Williams had consecutive double faults later in the set and smashed her racquet on the court.

However, researchers point out that, while the relative risk increased significantly, the overall risk was still pretty small. The researchers' paper is titled, " Diclofenac use and cardiovascular risks: series of nationwide cohort studies".
Williams had a meltdown late in the second set after being assessed for multiple violations.
In a second tweet, King said: "When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalized for it".
Williams coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, would later state: "If I'm honest I was coaching, [but] I don't think she looked at me".
"They're going to be allowed to do that because of today".
'But you can not deny there have been a lot worse situations and I'm not going to name names.
