Her 36-year-old opponent cleared that up for her with a whisper in her ear during the trophy presentation. I asked my daughter learn from it, ' another added.

"The trouble", one opinion writer wrote in that newspaper, "is that Knight has gone out of his way to depict her not as a champion athlete but as wild and barbaric; full-lipped, ugly and ape-like".

A number of people criticized Knight's cartoon as being racist, including Essence magazine editor Vanessa K. De Luca. "It had nothing to do with gender or race".

Roger Federer was fined just $1,500 for a berating an umpire with an expletive during the 2009 U.S. Open, and Adams pointed out that the amount of fines is at the discretion of the administrator of the four Grand Slam events, not the USTA.

During an appearance on Ellen, Osaka also explained how she remained composed while Williams flipped out on umpire Carlos Ramos, and how she feels as the reigning champ.

A group of umpires are reportedly considering boycott action against Serena Williams, according to an anonymous source in The Times. "Overall, I felt really happy and know I accomplished a lot".

Even the International Tennis Federation (ITF), which stood by the judges, waited 48 hours before announcing a position.

"Mr. Ramos' decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules and were reaffirmed by the US Open's decision to fine Serena Williams for the three offences".

The second and third violations earned Williams a point penalty and then a game penalty, giving Osaka a 5-3 second-set lead that effectively gifted her the title.
