It marked the third time in Williams's US Open career that her anger led to an eventual defeat.

On the other side, the 20-year-old Osaka could be the first Grand Slam singles champion from Japan and the youngest women's champion at the U.S. Open since Maria Sharapova was 19 in 2006. Williams told Ramos that her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, gave her a thumbs-up, which is just a C'mon.

Under fire from Williams, the umpire handed her the game penalty advancing the score to 5-3 in Osaka's favor and leaving the American serving to stay in the match.

Williams missed the U.S. Open previous year, because she gave birth to her daughter, during the tournament. "I don't cheat! I didn't get coaching".

Williams put an arm around Osaka's shoulder and told the crowd: "I know you guys were here rooting, and I was rooting, too, but let's make this the best moment we can".

Even with her outburst, Serena embraced Osaka after her first grand slam win. He's never (taken) a game from a man because they said, 'thief.' For me, it blows my mind. "You stole a point from me and you are a thief", Williams said during a changeover, to prompt his ruling.

Unranked and unseeded Clijsters won the first set with Williams receiving a warning for racquet abuse as she vented her frustration.

Osaka was also in tears, and said: "I know everyone was cheering for her and I'm sorry it had to end like this". "Every time I step out on this court I'm so grateful that I have an opportunity to play this sport".

It was more of the same in the second set as Keys' woes continued, the Australian and French Open semi-finalist broken in the first game.

Murray won past year with Martin Hingis and she was in the box Saturday to cheer the doubles team at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

While this sparked a debate about sexism at the U.S. Open, the discussion was further fueled after Novak Djovokic sat in his chair shirtless for several minutes during a break in his quarterfinals match. Osaka won 6-3, 6-2, but both players know there's not much to take from the match given the timing. Murray had three other Grand Slam mixed doubles titles.

Serena Williams will be vying for her seventh US Open championship and 24th Grand Slam singles title when she faces 20th-seeded Naomi Osaka of Japan in the women's final on Saturday.

She beat Williams in their first meeting, at the Miami Open earlier this year, and she proved it wasn't a fluke this time around.

Williams suffered life-threatening complications after the birth on September 1 of a year ago, requiring four surgeries to deal with blood clots.

Williams urged the crowd to calm down as Osaka wept, seemingly overwhelmed by the crowd's reaction and all the controversy.

Six-time US Open victor Williams, who remains one short of Margaret Court's record haul of 24 major singles titles, was initially disgusted after receiving a coaching violation from the umpire during the first set.
