Serena Williams: Umpire Breaks Silence Over US Open Final Controversy!

Williams, who was fined £13,000 over her actions, has defended herself claiming she was fighting for 'women's rights and for women's equality'.

The umpire at the centre of the Serena Williams controversy has broken his silence on the incident and defended his actions during a heated US Open final.

Carlos Ramos handed Williams a coaching violation during Saturday's match against Naomi Osaka after spotting a hand gesture from her coach Patrick Mouratoglou. Williams responded by telling Ramos she would rather lose than cheat.

She was then docked a point for a second violation when she smashed her racket. Continuing her argument with Ramos at the next change of ends, Williams accused him of being a thief for taking a point away from her.
Ramos gave her a third violation, which resulted in a game penalty, putting Osaka 5-3 ahead. A tearful Williams argued her case with tournament officials but, although she held serve in the next game, Osaka served out the victory 6-2 6-4 and take the title. Serena Williams: Umpire Breaks Silence Over US Open Final Controversy!
