In the second set's second game, Ramos warned Williams for getting coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches.

"He alleged that I was cheating, and I wasn't cheating", Serena Williams told reporters.

Williams' incendiary post-match press conference, where she accused Ramos of sexism, sent the outrage machine into overdrive.

While the debate over Serena Williams's behaviour during the women's final of the US Open continues, touching images of the tennis star and Naomi Osaka have flooded the net.

'Saturday also brought to the forefront the question of whether different standards are applied to men and women in the officiating of matches.

"King tweeted, When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalized for it". A tough thing for a chair umpire to deal with, as well.

"For me to say "thief" and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark", Williams, who was subsequently fined $17,000, said after the match.

Many, Ings included, believe Ramos followed the rule book to the letter - and should be lauded for having the courage to call the violations as he saw them.

"I have a daughter and I stand for what's right for her". (Take note that she was also penalized for wearing a catsuit.) Although Serena has had a long history of fighting umpires during her matches, as reported by BBC, she also emphasized that male players have said worst things but they are nearly never thrown out of a game. "I really don't. I think men and women are treated this way or the other way depending on the situation", Djokovic said. Everyone was in a very awkward situation.

"I have never cheated in my life!" On one hand, some got mad at Serena and her camp for ruining Naomi's winning moment.

'I have my personal opinion that maybe the chair umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit, especially in a grand slam final.

"I've seen other men call other umpires several things", she said. We all go through our emotions, especially when you're fighting for a Grand Slam trophy.

It is reported that after she had been called out for taking "coaching", she smashed her racket, which also added to the list of violations.
