Williams vs. Osaka: What the heck happened at the U.S. Open?

Osaka tames Keys to set up US Open final with childhood idol Serena

Greats of the game, current and former players and officials have been reacting to an extraordinary US Open final that saw Serena Williams lose to Naomi Osaka after an angry confrontation with the umpire.

While the big anticipation and the intriguing matchup of Williams and hot upstart Naomi Osaka were expected to drive ratings, few expected the big controversy and epic meltdown by Williams that engulfed the second set and may have have cost her the match. "I don't cheat to win". Afterward, she spoke about why she called Ramos a thief and how she had cited Olympia in telling him on the court, "I don't cheat to win". I know you guys were here rooting, and I was rooting, too, but let's make this the best moment we can.

She was frustrated! Had Osaka not put so much pressure on Serena, all of this may never have happened. "She showed a bullish attitude even toward a legend like Serena Williams", he said. Early on in the second set, chair umpire Carlos Ramos gave Serena a warning as he spotted her coach Patrick Mouratoglou making some hand signals from the player's box. He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief.' For me it blows my mind, but I'm going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equal coordination - to be able to take our shirt off on the court without getting a fine. She received a penalty point for the second violation. Williams lost to Naomi Osaka in Saturday's final.

"I don't want to be rude", Williams said in an ESPN post-interview.

The attack bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State group, which carried out many bombings against Shiites in recent years. He did not see the suicide bomber enter the room, but he felt the "flying shrapnel" as it pierced his abdomen.

Q: I don't think she's mad at you. In the ensuing conversation, the previous cheating accusation came up and Williams demanded an apology for accusing her of cheating. In the last month we have seen Williams's catsuit banned from the French Open - despite having been created to support the champion's postnatal medical needs - and Alizé Cornet punished for an on-court shirt change. More nonsense. Is she claiming sexism?

"Well, it was good that I played her because I kind of know how she plays now", said six-times U.S. Open champion Williams, who will be bidding to join Court, Evonne Goolagong and Kim Clijsters as the only mothers to have won Grand Slam titles in the professional era. When she looked up, she was suddenly one game away from the title.

"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". Wilson then tore into Williams's declaration that she was speaking out to help other women, labelling her a sham.

Just before the U.S. Open, the French tennis federation president said that the black catsuit worn this year by Williams at the French Open would not be allowed at that tournament in the future.
