Osaka not saddened by Serena row in US Open final

Here’s What Serena Williams Told Naomi Osaka After Bizarre U.S. Open Final

Serena Williams has been lashed for her US Open final meltdown by world number 25 Barbora Strycova who rubbished the American's "sexist" claims against chair umpire Carlos Ramos.

A defiant Serena Williams has broken her silence on her outburst at the US Open women's final, maintaining she had not received any coaching and was simply fighting for women's rights.

But Osaka has refused to blame her childhood idol, who called chair umpire Carlos Ramos a "thief" in an astonishing rant triggered by a code violation for coaching that culminated in a docked game.

"She said that she was proud of me and that I should know that the crowd wasn't booing at me", Osaka told DeGeneres. "We've never had signals". If you're a female you should be able to do, even half, of what a guy can do, ' Ms Williams said.

In the post-match news conference, Williams doubled down on her claim there is a double standard when it comes to punishment.

In becoming her country's first ever Grand Slam singles champion, Osaka, the daughter of a Haitian father and Japanese mother, is also helping break new ground in Japan as her biracial identity challenges the country's self-image as a racially homogenous society.

Mouratoglou admitted he was coaching Williams, but said she didn't look at him.

The International Tennis Federation supported Ramos in a statement released Monday, saying that his decisions were "in accordance with the relevant rules and were re-affirmed by the US Open's decision to fine Serena Williams for the three offenses". This included $10,000 for "verbal abuse" toward Ramos, $4,000 for the coaching warning and $3,000 for breaking her racket.

"But I've seen other men call other umpires several things".

"I don't understand what he was talking about", she added.

Ramos will umpire Croatia v United States of America in the Davis Cup this weekend and ahead of that tie, U.S. men's captain Jim Courier told the Associated Press news agency: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicised". No Serena, you are obfuscating the whole issue and, sadly, a lot of people are falling for it. "Professional tennis players, sometimes, I think we lose sight of that". "I'm not going to really think too far ahead", Osaka said.

Williams was handed a code violation for coaching early in the second set when Patrick Mouratoglou appeared to make hand signals to the 23-time Grand Slam champion from the player's box.
