Williams received wide support in her claims after a series of code violations issued by umpire Carlos Ramos saw her attack the man in the chair as she lost the US Open final to Japan's Naomi Osaka in NY last weekend.
The six-time US Open champion was handed a warning for a coaching violation before being deducted a point for smashing her racquet. Then, she demanded an apology from the umpire, who penalized her a game.

After the controversial match, Williams immediately embraced the young athlete once she noticed that Osaka pulled down her visor and started to cry while the loud boos echo in the stadium. He later admitted the offence, which is not allowed in the sport but is rarely punished.
She was slapped with a $17,000 fine after labelling Ramos a liar and a thief.
Ramos calmed the raucous crowd on several occasions and came down from his chair to check a few ball marks in the clay but otherwise had no impact on the match, which Cilic won in straight sets to give Croatia a 2-0 lead.
The first violation was for coaching, which Williams argued against.
Much of the criticism of Williams has centred on how her actions had spoiled a precious moment for Osaka, who was even moved to apologise for beating the home favourite to a NY crowd angrily booing Ramos.
"I drew her as an African-American woman, she's powerfully built, she wears these outrageous costumes when she plays tennis - she's interesting to draw".
'But you are not perplexed with her behavior last Saturday?' another user wrote. Ings insisted that the "Umpires are just upset".
"He did what he had to do in that match, because she overstepped the limit". She and Mr. Ramos were, in effect, talking past each other.
