Williams then called Ramos a thief. The game was unfortunately overshadowed when chair umpire Carlos Ramos delivered the star a game penalty, leading to an understandably furious Serena calling him a "thief" and demanding he apologize for his decision, which worked against her.
Boos rained down from the US Open crowd during the ceremony crowning Naomi Osaka the new champion after her controversial win over Serena Williams that was highlighted by Williams' feud with chair umpire Carlos Ramos.
Following the match, the United States Tennis Association, which runs the tournament, put out a statement from its president, Katrina Adams, hailing Williams for her "class" and "sportsmanship". "When a man does the same, he's "outspoken" & and there are no repercussions", King tweeted late Saturday. After a couple minutes of seemingly random thank you's and giggling throughout, she closed by saying, "This is probably gonna be the worst acceptance speech of all time".
"I can't really form an opinion yet".
"The WTA supports coaching through its on-court coaching rule, but further review is needed", he said.
You might remember that during his second round match, Kyrgios stopped trying to return his opponent's serve, received coaching from the umpire and heckled the crowd - a triple whammy that was going to take some beating.

While the 20-year-old's historic win came after an emotionally tumultuous game - Williams threw a racket-smashing tantrum after she was given code violations - the achievement provided a rare piece of good news for Japan, which is experiencing one of its most calamitous summers.
He also called for coaching to be allowed "across the sport".
Williams was incensed at the coaching violation, although coach Patrick Mouratoglou, sitting in her box, admitted that he was coaching when he moved his hands.
Serena Williams accused the umpire during the recent US Open Final of being sexist, a liar and a thief, after he accused her of a 'coaching violation'. That triggered a third violation, which resulted in a game penalty that gave Osaka a 5-3 lead.
Osaka's father Leonard, who went to NY for her match, said he was beyond excited, and relieved to see her win.
However, Djokovic said he doesn't agree with WTA CEO Steve Simon's backing of Williams' claims of sexism. I had a awful year, I was terribly badly behaved. "She's right about the guys being held to a different standard, there's no question". He took points from her for that terse remark along with points because she deliberately broke her tennis racket on the court. Like most of us, she has her awkward moments, and they're all so endearing. Tough thing for a chair umpire to deal with, as well. At the 1990 Australian Open he got his first warning for intimidating a lineswoman who called his ball out.
