Osaka Claims US Open Title After Serena Meltdown

Naomi Osaka- US Open 2018

What the 2018 final will forever be remembered for is the way Williams clashed with chair umpire Carlos Ramos, demanding an apology after he initially issued a warning for a code violation in the second set's second game for receiving coaching, which is not allowed during Grand Slam matches.

During a press conference after the match, Williams said that Ramos' ruling was "sexist" because she has witnessed male players calling umpires "several things", but they were not penalized.

Having been given a racket abuse warning after losing the first set of her semi-final against Clijsters, Williams was called for a foot fault on a second serve trailing 5-6 and 15-30 in the second set, thus giving her opponent a match point.

"I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff", she said. Venus Williams was also targeted by Ramos for that, and like her sister, she too denied it, saying, "I'm 36 years old". This is not fair. The violations were for coaching (supposedly Ramos saw Williams' coach signaling to her during a game), breaking her racket and behavior Romas deemed "verbal abuse". "More voices are needed to do the same", she said.

"I think incredibly strong from the umpire to not be intimidated by a GOAT (greatest of all time) of the game and hand out the game penalty even so? I know that she was frustrated about the way the match played out, but the way she stepped up after the final and gave full credit to Naomi for a match well-played speaks volumes about who she is".

In frustration during the changeover, Williams smashed her racquet, earning another code violation and a one-point deduction.

Williams was looking to win her 24th Grand Slam singles title, which would have tied her with Australia's Margaret Court for the all-time record.

Though she seemed dead in the water and probably was not coming back, Williams got penalized a point and then a game by Ramos. "Ramos had rescued his ego and, in the act, taken something from Williams and Osaka that they can never get back".

Korean leaders schedule third summit, envoy says
They then met with the North Korean leader to discuss the agenda of the upcoming inter-Korean summit and other matters. US President Donald Trump praised North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Thursday for reportedly expressing faith in him.

'The third one I was sitting and praying serena would stop and I'm not justifying what she said.

The 36-year-old, who was bidding for a seventh US Open title in NY, was clearly agitated.

Mouratoglou, however, admitted to ESPN's Pam Shriver after the match that he was indeed coaching Williams from the box - a surprise to the 23-time major champion.

"If I had to go through this just an example for next person who wants to express herself, maybe it did not work out for me but may work out for next person", she said.

'But you can not deny there have been a lot worse situations and I'm not going to name names. "I have a daughter and I stand for what's right for her", she said.

And for him to take a game?

"It was always my dream to play Serena in the U.S. Open finals..." Williams attempted to comfort Osaka before addressing the booing crowd.
