Patrick Mouratoglou admitted to training Serena Williams during the final of the US Open, but believes that she did not see him, which is why he became so angry with the referee.

Williams has made headlines for having come to blows with referee Carlos Ramos after he gave him a coaching violation in the second set.

The tennis legend, who then landed a point after he broke his racket, told Ramos that he preferred to lose before cheating.

"I'm honest, I was training," said Mouratoglou after the game. "I do not think she looked at me, so that's why she did not even think she was."

But Mouratoglou claims that Sascha Bajin, the trainer of champion Naomi Osaka, was also 'coach of all points'.

"I was, like 100 percent of the coaches in 100 percent of the games, so we have to stop this hypocritical thing," he told ESPN.

& Sascha was also training all the points. It is strange that this chair judge was the chairman of most of Rafa's finals [Nadal] Y [his uncle] Toni is a trainer at all points and never gave a warning, so I really do not understand. "

Williams said later that he was surprised to hear Mouratoglou admit that he was a coach.

"We have never discussed the signs," he said. I do not even call for training on the court. I'm trying to find out why he would say that. I do not understand. I mean, maybe he said "You can do it".

"I was at the other end, so I'm not sure." I want to clarify what he is talking about.

Mouratoglou said later that he was doing what any other coach does and that the referee's reaction was "extreme".

"Everyone does it, everyone knows it," he told reporters. "There is a rule and there is a psychology that the chair judge must have."

– He would say he saw you train, make a move and give a warning. What he did was so extreme. It's a shame. & # 39;

There's a rule, yes. But do not put on a Grand Slam final and turn it into drama the way it was. It could have been easily avoided if there was psychology.

Mouratoglou said that Williams felt that she was "insulted" & # 39; by Ramos.

& # 39;[He] I treated her like a cheater, "she said." She felt completely humiliated, that's why she reacted like that, integrity is the most important thing for her. "

Williams has claimed that he was a victim of sexism after Ramos drew his point for Mouratoglou's gesture, accusing him of being a "thief."

"I never received training." I explained to you that for you and to attack my character, then something is wrong. You are attacking my character. Yes you are. You owe me an apology, "he said.

"Never, never, will you be in another court of mine while you live." You are the liar. When will you give me my apology? You owe me an apology. & # 39;

Say it, say you're sorry. Then do not talk to me, do not talk to me. How dare you imply that I was cheating? You stole a point. You are a thief too.

Ramos then gave him a third violation, which resulted in a penalty and Osaka 5-3 ahead.

A tearful Williams discussed his case with the tournament officials, but, although he maintained his service in the next game, Osaka took the victory 6-2, 6-4.

Asked in his press conference what he would have done differently in retrospect, Williams became increasingly emotional.

"I can not sit here and say I would not say he is a thief, because I thought he had taken a game from me," he told reporters.

"But I've seen other men call other arbitrators several things, I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality."

"For me to say" thief "and for him to take a game, he made me feel that it was a sexist comment, he never took a man's game because they said" thief. "He blows my head."

"I feel that the fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person who has emotions, and wants to express himself, and wants to be a strong woman."

& # 39; They will be allowed to do that for today. Maybe it did not work for me, but it's going to work for the next person. "

Tennis legend Billie Jean King, who won 12 Grand Slam titles, including four US Opens, was among those who jumped to support Williams as the dispute escalated.

"Several things went very wrong during the Women's Finals today," King said on Twitter.

& # 39; You must allow training at every point in tennis. It is not, and as a result, a player was penalized for the actions of his coach. This should not happen.

"When a woman is emotional, she is" hysterical "and is penalized for it.When a man does the same thing, he is" frank "and there are no repercussions.

& # 39; Thank you, @serenawilliams, for invoking this double standard. More voices are needed to do the same.

Victoria Azarenka, two times open winner of Australia and former world number 1, also supported Williams.

She tweeted: If it were a men's match, this would not happen like that. I just would not do it. "

The creator of Gray & # 39; s Anatomy, Shonda Rhimes, and the skater Adam Rippon, who attended the game, also rose to defend Williams.

& # 39; Serena is right. I was there. And, what's worse, I was provoking her, "Rhimes tweeted.

"I was there and completely in agreement," Rippon added. "Much worse has happened in a men's game without punishment." Despite what happened, she was kind enough to help create a special moment for Naomi in the end.

Both Osaka and Williams were crying during the emotional trophy ceremony as the crowd filled the stadium with a chorus of boos.

Williams said he felt bad seeing the crowd's reaction to Osaka's shining moment, and he even stood up at the microphone and asked the crowd to stop booing him.

Williams said he felt bad to see the reaction of the crowd to the bright moment of Osaka.

"I'm crying and crying and I'm not sure if they're happy tears," Williams said after the game. "I was thinking that this was definitely not what I felt when I won my first Grand Slam."

At one point, Williams even picked up the microphone and asked the crowd to stop.

"I know you were here supporting and I was also rooting, but let's make this the best possible moment," he said.

"Let's give everyone the credit for the credit, let's not boo anymore." Congratulations Naomi, no more boos!

Even Osaka apologized to the crowd, telling them "I was sorry I had to end like this."

"I know everyone was encouraging her," he said. "It was always my dream to play Serena in the finals of the US Open, so I am very happy that I was able to do it."

"And I'm really grateful to have been able to play with you, so thank you," he added, turning to address Williams.

The WTA says it will analyze the dispute between Williams and Ramos, but the USTA said its decision to hit Williams with code violations is final and that the actions were not reviewed.

COMPLETE TRANSCRIPTION OF THE SERENA AND UMPIRE SURVEY

After being penalized for throwing his racket early in the second set:

& # 39; It's amazing. All the teams that I play here have problems.

"I did not receive training, I did not receive training, I did not receive training, you must make an announcement that I did not receive training, I do not cheat, I did not receive training, how can you say that?

You owe me an apology. You owe me an apology. I have never cheated in my life. I have a daughter and I defend what is right for her and I have never cheated. You owe me an apology.

After breaking to continue 4-3 in the second set:

"I never received training." I explained to you that for you and to attack my character, then something is wrong. You are attacking my character. Yes you are. You owe me an apology.

"Never, never, will you be in another court of mine while you live." You are the liar. When will you give me my apology? You owe me an apology.

Say it, say you're sorry. Then do not talk to me, do not talk to me. How dare you imply that I was cheating? You stole a point. You are a thief too.

After having landed a game:

& # 39; Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Because I said you were a thief? You stole a point. I'm not a cheater. I told you to apologize. Excuse me, I need the referee, I do not agree with that.

With the referees of the tournament:

& # 39; This is not right. INAUDIBLE. He said he was being trained but he was not being trained. That is not right. You already know how I am. You know my character. This is not fair. This has happened to me many times. This is not fair. Losing a game for saying that is not fair. Do you know how many men do things that are much worse than that? This is not fair.

"There are many men here who have said many things and, because they are men, they do not matter." Is incredible. No, I do not know the risk because if I say something simple, a thief, because he stole a point.

& # 39; There are men here who do much worse and because I am a woman you are going to take this away from me. That is not right. And you know it and I know you can not admit it, but I know you know that that's not right. I know you can not change it, but I'm just saying it's not right.

I receive the rules, but I'm just saying that it's not right. It happens to me in this tournament every year and it's not fair. That is all I have to say.

Post-match press conference:

"I can not sit here and say I would not say he is a thief, because I thought he had taken a game from me.

"But I've seen other men call other arbitrators various things, I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of things, for me to say 'thief' and for he took a game, he made me feel like it was a sexist comment, he never took a game from a man because they said "thief." It leaves me speechless

"I feel that the fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person who has emotions, and wants to express himself, and wants to be a strong woman.

& # 39; They will be allowed to do that for today. Maybe it did not work for me, but it's going to work for the next person. "
