The 23-time grand slam champion was handed three code violations - for coaching, racquet abuse and verbal abuse - culminating in a game penalty late in her defeat.

Williams missed out on the US Open prize on Saturday with Naomi Osaka beating her to land her first Grand Slam title.

WTA Tour chief executive Steve Simon has also said the sport should examine the rules on coaching, noting that his organisation allows on-court coaching during regular tour events if a player requests it.

When Naomi Osaka pulled off a stunning triumph against childhood idol and legendary tennis player Serena Williams at the US Open held on Sunday (Sept 9), she became the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam. We do not believe that this was done on Saturday night'.

As anyone playing tennis today will tell you, facing Serena Williams on court is more than just a match - it is a career milestone. The Frenchman later admitted he was trying to coach his player.

"We also think the issue of coaching needs to be addressed and should be allowed across the sport", said Simon. The WTA supports coaching through its on-court coaching rule, but further review is needed'.

Navratilova spoke to The New York Times, praising Williams for her message of inequality but criticizing the context in which she made her argument.

The head of the United States Tennis Association, which organises the US Open, said men "are badgering the umpire on the changeovers and nothing happens". These are conversations that will be imposed in the next weeks.

She called Ramos "a thief and a liar". They've been called a lot more. The women's pro tour agreed.

"For me I felt like I was a kid, I know for sure if I was in the crowd I would have been cheering for Serena too. I really don't", Djokovic said. Tough thing for a chair umpire to deal with, as well. "Everyone was in a very awkward situation yesterday", Djokovic said. Chair umpires use similar terminology among themselves, and Ramos has completed a "Golden Slam" by being in the chair for men's singles finals at all four Grand Slam tournaments and at the 2012 men's Olympic singles final between Andy Murray and Roger Federer.

"Just maybe changed - not maybe, but he did change the course of the match", Djokovic said.

AS with any final weekend of a grand slam there was plenty of cash being dished out at the US Open the past couple of days.

Simon backed the claims and added: "There's no equality when it comes to what the men are doing to the chair umpires and what the women are doing".
