US Open champion Naomi Osaka reveals what Serena Williams told her

However, the world's third-ranked men's player does not necessarily agree with the assessments of Williams and WTA chief executive Steve Simon that umpires treat women players differently from men.

A report by The Times of London published on Tuesday cited an anonymous official saying that tennis umpires are considering refusing to officiate matches involving Williams.

"For me, I don't feel sad because I wouldn't even know what I'm expected to feel", she said. 'She's right about the guys being held to a different standard, there's no question.' The Australian 24-time Grand Slam victor Margaret Court said: 'We always had to go by the rules.

The incident began when Williams was penalized for allegedly receiving direction from her coach on the sidelines via hand signals, which is a violation of US Open rules. During the ESPN broadcast of the trophy ceremony, Williams tried to quiet the racuous, booing crowd of 20,000-plus and put her arm around Osaka.

Williams was given three code violations by Portuguese official Carlos Ramos in her straight-set loss to Naomi Osaka of Japan on Saturday, with the American and critics arguing she wasn't treated the same as some male players.

In winning her maiden Grand Slam, Osaka more than doubled her career prize money, adding $3.8 million to her total.

Williams later broke her racket and shouted at Ramos, which led to a penalty point and a game penalty.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Osaka revealed what Williams told her on stage that night.

"For now, I'm just sort of riding the wave". "He never took a game from a man because he said "thief". Amid the swirl of high-pressure matches, interviews and endorsement negotiations, it's a question she hasn't dwelt on.

Representing Japan, the biracial athlete (her dad is Haitian, mom is Japanese and she grew up in Florida), has won over hearts by keeping her cool in her win over Williams, marred by officiating many have denounced as sexist.

Serena Williams of the United States yells at chair umpire Carlos Ramos at the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, Sept. 8, 2018.

"I feel like maybe they won't be around for much longer so having the chance to see them live and being born in the same time zone as them is really great". "You owe me an apology!" she shouted repeatedly. "It's an unhappy situation but "à la carte" refereeing doesn't exist".
