Serena Williams returns to motherhood amid US Open final controversy

Serena Williams returns to motherhood amid US Open final controversy

On Saturday, she raged and shouted during a US Open final match marred by controversy. "Several things went very wrong during the U.S. Open women's finals today", she tweeted. Williams emotionally had told him that she does not cheat and has a daughter for whom she tries to set an example.

Williams will take on Japanese teenager Naomi Osaka for a chance to etch her name in the record books alongside Margaret Court with 24 majors. "Every time I step out on this court I'm so grateful that I have an opportunity to play this sport".

Osaka, 20, said a desire to play her idol Williams in the final motivated her to fight harder in the semifinals.

The video contrasts shots of Williams taking the court at Flushing Meadows this week with those of her in a hospital bed, cuddling her baby daughter. "Help me make sure she sees it!"

"I know everyone was cheering for her and I'm sorry it had to end like this", she said.

Obama will share the billing with seven Democratic candidates in competitive U.S. He added that when there is a vacuum in democracy, "other voices fill the void".

The women's final is at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in NY at 4 p.m. local time. She resumed that argument after the second violation, still angry about the first violation. "I stand for what's right", insisted Williams as they headed into the sixth game - in which Osaka held at love.

Earlier this year Williams, 36, told People magazine that realising she was going to have to have a c-section had made her feel "devastated".

"How dare you insinuate that I was cheating?"

Tennis fans will recall Williams wore the tutu after the French Open banned her from wearing her black catsuit at future tournaments. "I've been training on it, practicing it, and it came together", Serena said. Her ugly rant at a line judge marred Kim Clijsters's semi-final win over her in 2009 and she infamously called chair umpire Eva Asderaki "unattractive inside" in a tantrum during her 2011 final loss to Samantha Stosur.
