Later, in the post-match conference, Williams said that there was a double standard in handing punishment to players.

Williams was issued a warning for coaching, something her coach sitting in the stands, Patrick Mouratoglou, admitted to doing.

Appearing on the "Ellen Show" Wednesday, Osaka revealed what Williams told her after the defeat as the crowd booed over the controversial decisions made by Ramos. However, Williams preferred to talk about her fashion business, telling business owners to "Really figure out "what I can do to revamp [my business] and bring it back to the top". "We've never had signals".

Williams later broke her racket and shouted at Ramos, which led to a penalty point and a game penalty.

It was at the point she called him a "thief" that Ramos penalised Williams for verbal abuse, and docked her a game.

Over the course of the fortnight, Osaka defeated Laura Siegemund, Julia Glushko, Aliaksandra Sasnovich, Aryna Sabalenka, Lesia Tsurenko and 2017 US Open runner-up Madison Keys to claim her place in the final.

But her claims were soon undermined by statistics showing that there were 86 code violations handed out to male players at the US Open, and only 22 to women. She was called on three violations over the course of the match.

Adams came under fire in some circles for inflaming the sensitive situation when she released a statement hours after the final supporting Serena's protest, labelling Serena a "true champion" who "showed a great deal of class and sportsmanship".

Meanwhile, women's champion and long-time advocate of gender equality in sport Billie King said that while Williams' outburst was "out of line" she felt the umpire would have behaved differently had she been a man.

We need to forget about it because Williams has achieved so much.
