Serena Williams keen to 'move on' from US Open row

After a very tense end to the women's U.S. Open, where the tennis star received multiple penalties from umpire Carlos Ramos and lost to competitor Naomi Osaka, Williams met up with her family.

The first came when Ramos deemed that Williams' coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, was coaching her from the sidelines while she was on the court, a practice that's prohibited in tennis.

In a separate interview with Australia's Sunday Project, she said she did not understand why Patrick Mouratoglou said he was giving her signals from the stands.

"We don't have signals, we've never had signals", she said.

Williams said she had not seen the Frenchman make a gesture, labelling his subsequent admission as "a really confusing moment". He said he made a motion, and I said 'OK so you made a motion and now you're telling people you were coaching me?'. I think other referees have his back, as well. Serena's assertion of not seeing her coach's motions does not tally with her statement during the final, where she argued fiercely that he wasn't coaching her but gave her a thumbs up.

Williams returned to Grand Slam tennis in May at the due to an injury. but failed to claim her eighth title in the championship. She said it was emotional time.

Wilkinson asked another question in regards to whether Williams regretted smashing her racquet, prompting the publicist to step in off-camera and told her she'd asked four questions about the US Open and it was time to change topics.

"We always had to go by the rules", Court, who dominated tennis during the 1960s and early 1970s, said according to a report in The Australian.

"But I'm just trying to recover from that and move on".

WM-BLAC strongly denounces the actions of umpire Ramos at the U.S. Open match between Williams and Ōsaka as sexist and racist.

"I think that when you're going into a grand slam final, you're fighting for your 24th slam, you're fighting to be on paper, the best player to ever have played the game. there will be emotions involved".

Williams admitted she was surprised by how much of Sharapova's book focused on her and questioned why she had featured so much. Say it. Say you're sorry, ' she added. You owe me an apology.

"I think as a great umpire - you obviously have to be a good umpire to be in the finals - you should also be aware that this is the situation".

As a result, Ramos docked the entire next game from Williams, leaving Osaka 5-3 up in the second set and just a game from victory.

"We should not let her record, as glowing as it is, overshadow the fact that on this day, in this match Williams was wrong", Ings wrote in The Sydney Morning Herald.

"If you were to be strict. then you should have taken both players and the coaches before the match and said, Hey, I'm really strict today".
