I didn't know what was happening, says Osaka

Williams and Sevastova shake hands at the net after their match

Williams could face further sanctions for her actions on Saturday against Osaka, the WTA issuing a statement that they will be looking into the incident.

What a baptism this was at the highest level for 20-year-old Osaka, who was up against Williams' 30 grand slam finals and years of experience but was the one who kept her cool.

Osaka - who moved from Japan to NY at the age of 3 - became Japan's first Grand Slam singles champion.

It also delayed Williams's bid for a record-equalling 24th major title.

"It still feels really weird because I've never beaten Madison before", Osaka said. I've never cheated, and you owe me an apology. Eventually, Willams called Ramos "a thief", drawing a third violation — and costing her a game.

And that was just the start.

Even with all the chaos around her, Osaka managed to stay poised and close out the win. But Williams played a poor game right after that to get broken immediately, and she smashed her racket on the court, destroying it.

Although Williams won the next game, Osaka stayed focused to hold serve for the historic victory.

"It was always my dream to play Serena in the US Open finals". On the other side, the 20-year-old Osaka could be the first Grand Slam singles champion from Japan and the youngest women's champion at the U.S. Open since Maria Sharapova was 19 in 2006. Then came Williams infamous tirade after a foot fault in the 2009 semifinals against Kim Clijsters, and a to-do over a hindrance call in the 2011 final against Sam Stosur. You are a liar. Say you are sorry. But Williams's complaints, however fair or unfair, shouldn't take away from one of the most impressive Grand Slam runs in recent memory.

"This is not fair". "There's still much more that I plan on doing..." It's really not. There are a lot of men out here who have said a lot worse than that. You stole a point from me.

"He's like, You know what?"

The charges were announced as President Trump and his administration negotiations with North Korea to end its nuclear program. It's been a year and half since he launched a ransomware attack that hit hundreds of thousands of computers across the globe.

"You're attacking my character", she said. "Maybe it was the mom in me that was like, ‘Listen, weve got to pull ourselves together here".

Serena Williams insisted she was not cheating in the US Open final on Saturday before accusing the sport which has made her a global icon of sexism. "What Serena has accomplished this year in playing her way back on to the tour is truly wonderful", Adams said in the statement.

"I was coaching but I don't think she looked at me", he said. "So we have to stop this hypocrite thing". She shouldn't have to think about that. She's human. It's nto a big deal breaking a racket.

He pointed out how suspicious it was that he received a coaching violation, which he says was the first in his life.

Coach Patrick Mouratoglou admitted in an interview with ESPN that he was trying to advise her with a hand gesture, although Williams was apparently oblivious.

"You definitely can't go back in time", Williams said when asked if she would change anything about the match. "I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief, because I thought he took a game from me". Williams told them the whole episode "is not fair", and said: "This has happened to me too many times".

Williams is set to play in her ninth U.S. Open final and 31st at all Grand Slam tournaments a year after she missed the tournament because she gave birth to her daughter, Olympia.

"Then I had a good conversation with him".

Williams streaked into the US Open having won the Australian Open and Wimbledon that year and chasing a second straight title in Flushing Meadows.

"She remained so calm throughout the match" despite the brouhaha, Sakai said.

Osaka broke down in tears at the presentation ceremony with an overwhelming chorus of boos, in response to Serena's treatment, the culprit.
