Osaka was only a year old when Williams won her first slam title here in 1999. "You are the liar", she fumed and Ramos handed her a game penalty for a third violation - verbal abuse - that put Osaka one game from victory at 5-3 in the second set.

An angry Williams - who confused Asderaki with the umpire who was in the chair for the 2009 Clijsters match - verbally attacked her during the changeover. But. that's when chair umpire Carlos Ramos noticed Williams's coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, making gestures toward his player.

Osaka - born in Osaka to a Japanese mother and a Haitian father and has lived in Florida since aged three - has been winning hearts in Japan with her antics both on and off the court, with her post-match interviews always fun to watch, as she does her best to answer questions in both English and her less-than-perfect, but loved by the masses, Japanese.

After being broken to go down 4-3, Williams smashed her racket which led to a point penalty. It all dates back to 2004, when an incorrect call during a quarterfinal loss to Jennifer Capriati was cited as the main reason for the introduction of replay technology in tennis. "I have a daughter and I stand for what's right".

Down 3-4 in the set, Williams told Ramos, "You stole a point from me and you are a thief". I just feel like not only is my future bright, even though I'm not a spring chicken, but I still have a very, very bright future.

Williams suffered life-threatening complications after the birth on September 1 of past year, requiring four surgeries to deal with blood clots. He was like, Oh, I get it.

Serena's epic US Open meltdown has been slammed by tennis fans as a "disgraceful" act of sportsmanship.

When a second code violation for racquet abuse was handed out to her - along with a point penalty for a second violation - Williams exploded.

"There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things", Williams said, "and because they are men, that doesn't happen". "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".

"I've seen other men call umpires several things", she said.

The 20-year-old should have cried tears of joy, but she was instead overwhelmed by a chorus of boos.

"Cornet should be able to take off her shirt without getting a fine". It's "the largest payout in U.S. Open history", according to a news release.
