  • Serena Williams fined $17,000 for US Open meltdown

Serena Williams argues with the chair umpire during a match against Naomi Osaka, of Japan, during the women's finals of the U.S. Open tennis tournament on September 8 in NY.

She was fined $17,000 (£13,100) for code violations and docked a game for the angry scenes that unfolded at Flushing Meadows on Saturday. Serena denied seeing him.

The ITF were initially reluctant to get involved in the feud, which was sparked during the US Open final, but they have now given their backing to Ramos.

The 36-year-old who holds 23 grand slam titles, a world record, received a code violation for coaching, a penalty point for racquet abuse and a game penalty for calling the umpire a "thief".

"Always something happens to me here", she huffed at tournament referee Brian Earley, summoned to the court after she failed to get satisfaction from Ramos. She disputed the ruling, saying that cheating is "the one thing I've never done, ever".

"You stole a point from me and you are a thief", Williams told Ramos prompting the game penalty ruling.

Djokovic also said he has empathy for Ramos as well as Williams and Osaka. Retired tennis player James Blake said that Williams should have at least been given a warning by Ramos. "Maybe it didn't work out for me, but it's going to work out for the next person". First of all, she's amusing. "I think there has to be some consistency across the board".
