I'm not a cheat & # 039;: Serena Williams argues with a referee in the final of the Open Women of the United States

Serena Williams came to blows with the referee in the women's final of the United States when she accused him of

Serena Williams got into a screaming with the referee in the women's final of the US Open when she accused him of "stealing a point".

The referee Carlos Ramos imposed a penalty on the game of the US star during his match against Naomi Osaka as he accused her of receiving training from the sidelines.

The 23-time Grand Slam winner shouted at Ramos: "Every time I play here, I have problems, I did not have training, I do not cheat, you need to make an announcement, I have a daughter and I defend what is right, you owe me an apology.

& # 39; For me to attack my character is wrong. You owe me an apology. You will never live with me on the court while you live. You are the liar You owe me an apology. Say it. Say you're sorry.

& # 39; How dare you imply that I was cheating? You stole a point. You are a thief too. & # 39;

Moments later Williams fell out of the final with Osaka winning 6-2, 6-4.

& # 39; This is not right, this is not fair. This has happened to me too many times, "shouted Williams (left) before the referee on the court.

The drama developed when Williams realized he had received a point penalty after he broke his racket during the final at Flushing Meadows in New York City.

& # 39; This is not right, this is not fair. This has happened to me many times, "Williams shouted at Ramos.

& # 39; Because I'm a woman, you're going to take this away from me. This is not OK. Every year that I play this is not fair. "

Williams then began to cry while saying: "I've worked so hard to be in this position."

His coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, had been accused of giving hand signals illegally in the first set.

Mouratoglou said after the game: "Not once in my life have they called me a coach's violation".

When interviewed by ESPN, he said he admitted that while he was directing, he was no different from what any other coach does.

"I'm honest, I was training, I do not think (Serena) looked at me, so that's why she did not think I was (coach), but she was, like 100 percent of the coaches in 100 percent of the So we have to stop this hypocritical thing.

& # 39; (Osaka coach) was the coach of every point too.

& # 39; Two rules are killing tennis. Not allowing a player to express their feelings is stupid. It is not a big problem to break a racket & # 39;

He later tweeted: "The star of the show has once again been the chair umpire.

"Second time in this US Open and third time for Serena in a US Open Final Should they be allowed to influence the outcome of a match? When do we decide that this will never happen again?

Mouratoglou followed that tweet with: "Congratulations to Naomi Osaka for a fantastic tournament."

After she repeatedly insulted the referee, calling him a liar and a thief and demanding an apology, he robbed her in a game, leaving her in 3-5, from which she could not recover.

How the furious confrontation between Serena and the US Open referee developed

  • Serena Williams received a code violation when her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, appeared to gesture at him, in what the referee said was off-court training.
  • Serena told the referee & # 39; I do not cheat & # 39; before the game continued.
  • A few games later, Williams broke a racket after losing a game and was 4-3 behind. This led to a second violation of the code and his opponent received a point. Then, Williams made an extravagant diatribe in which he called the judge Carlos Ramos & # 39; thief & # 39 ;. You are a liar. You will never be in a court of mine while you live. When will you give me my apology? Say you're sorry, "he shouted.
  • This resulted in another violation of the code and his opponent, Naomi Osaka, received a game.
  • Williams called the tournament referee as he cried on the court. No further action was taken and the referee left the court.
  • Williams went on to lose the game 2-6, 4-6, and continued to stew on the court during the awards ceremony to the heckles of the crowd.
  • An interviewer on the court had to order the crowd to stop booing until Williams regained his composure. Then he also requested that the taunts stop and he congratulated his opponent.

He decried a magnificent performance by the Japanese player raised in the United States, and resulted in an embarrassing trophy transfer, in which Williams was described as Osaka's "role model".

Ramos, a very experienced officer, had little alternative, given the abuse that was being hurled at him by Williams, who also pointed at him with an angry finger.

While the trophies were presented, boos were heard around the stadium, most sympathizing with her, incorporating the genre into the discussion, now in protest with tournament referee Brian Earley, whom he summoned on the court.

& # 39; You will never sit on the court with me while you're alive! & # 39; It was another threat to the referee.

In the middle of an increasingly feverish atmosphere, he appeared, for the first time, to reach Osaka and was momentarily shaken by the adrenaline that his opponent gave him in the row that broke by 3-1 in the second.

It was after two double faults that the parity was restored that Williams lost completely, throwing his racket to the ground to be given, inevitably, a penalty point.

& # 39; I know that you were here rooting and we are going to make this the best moment we can. Let's not boo anymore, let's be positive. Congratulations Naomi, no more boos.

"Thanks to my team, you are incredible, thanks to the crowd, you really are the best in the world."

Osaka was also crying and said: "I know everyone was cheering her up and I feel like it's over like that. I just want to say thank you for watching the game.

"The worst arbitration I've seen … the worst!" former tennis star Andy Roddick tweeted.

This @usopen … just … wow … all the way. Congratulations to Naomi but this chair judge was in one. The players should be able to show emotion. Breaking a racket is not a big deal. The rules must evolve with the game of tennis, "tweeted ESPN host Jay Williams.

Tennis star Victoria Azarenka also wrote on Twitter: & # 39; This is bs & # 39;

Others called Williams because of his "ridiculous" behavior.

"A ridiculous behavior here by Serena Williams, angrily pointing her finger and demanding an apology from referee Carlos Ramos, who is simply doing his job," Fraser tweeted.

It was the second consecutive Grand Slam final loss for Williams, after Wimbledon in July, as he is looking for a major starting title since returning to the tour after having a baby in 2017.

This year's US Open was the third high profile conflict with a Williams official at Flushing Meadows, after his infamous tirade after a foot failed in the 2009 semifinals against Kim Clijsters, and a dispute over a obstacle in the final of 2011 against Sam Stosur.
