While Williams passed on his question, Rinaldi said her response to an aggressive and appalling crowd wound up saving the interview and presentation, as Williams pleaded with a rowdy Arthur Ashe audience to stop booing as Osaka stood crying on the podium.

Djokovic was asked about the controversial decisions to dock Williams a point and then a full game due to conduct violations after he had just won the U.S. Open men's final to capture his 14th Grand Slam title. Williams denied the accusation and could be heard repeatedly demanding an apology from Ramos.

"I have never cheated in my life!"

"And it's always been absurd to me that the coach cannot give a shout to his player when he can do the rest of thousands of people in the stadium". This is an impressive feat, considering she faced a red hot Madison Keys in the semi-finals and managed to dispatch her in straight sets, saving an incredible 13 break points. "She was very gracious and direct in doing that", he said.

Williams went on to congratulate Osaka at the end of the match.

Any further delays would cut into their valuable recovery time, especially with the Tour Championship and Ryder Cup on deck. The same is true for Bradley and for Noren, the Swede who makes his Ryder Cup debut at the end of the month.

Ramos called this "verbal abuse" and issued her a third penalty, allowing Osaka to win, 6-2, 6-4.

Williams became emotional during the exchange, breaking into tears while arguing her case.

Routine code violations result in fines that might be the tennis equivalent of parking tickets outside the Flushing Meadows complex but sometimes in can also explode into a major incident as it did in 2009 with Serena Williams.

"I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff".

"I think he would have (said that to a male player), I think it's a bond that they have and the way they communicate, and maybe not understanding they can have that same conversation with the women".

Erdogan added it is "vital" to protect civilians in the region, separate terrorist elements and ensure current status of Idlib. Putin's remarks on the situation in Syria tilted towards humanitarian aspects and the necessity to reconstruct the country.

"Carlos Ramos took away the game because of the player's rebuke in an attack of irascibility".

He said it was "a very awkward situation" for everyone involved, including the 2018 U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka. "We're gonna get through this and let's be positive, so congratulations, Naomi".

Chair umpires typically receive gifts during trophy presentations, but Ramos was notably absent for the ceremony.

"The tournament referee levied fines against Williams of $4,000 for the coaching violation, $3,000 for racket abuse and $10,000 for the verbal abuse", CNN reported via the United States Tennis Association.

The new US Open champion, Naomi Osaka, has spoken about the mixed emotions she felt after winning her first grand slam in a match overshadowed by an umpiring controversy.
