Serena Williams lost to Naomi Osaka at the 2018 US Open Championship match. What made headline news was the meltdown of Serena over a point and game violation for her behavior. Despite receiving multiple penalties, she kept yelling at the umpire, Carlos Ramos, demanding that he owed her an apology.
Player coaching has been an ongoing problem in tennis and during the match, there were instances where authorities caught her coach giving signals during points, which is a violation. There was nothing ‘unfair’ about giving her a warning for it. Serena just took too far by fighting back, bringing up irrelevant things like having a daughter, which had absolutely nothing to do with the situation. She kept saying ‘I didn’t get coaching,” and “I have never cheated in my life!” She later made exaggerated accusations that escalated the situation.
