As Serena Williams angrily pointed her finger towards Carlos Ramos and demanded an apology from the umpire during Saturday's US Open women's singles final, there was a feeling of déjà vu inside the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Naomi Osaka won the final 6-2 6-4 to become Japan's first ever Grand Slam singles champion and delay Williams's bid for a record-equalling 24th major title.

The six-times U.S. Open champion, who has since been fined $17,000 by the United States Tennis Association for the violations, vigorously disputed each during the match. But it was clear the moment took some of the shine off the win as Osaka looked more devastated than delighted when she was presented with the $3.8 million winner's cheque and trophy.

"You definitely can't go back in time but I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief because I thought he took a game from me", Williams said.

King tweeted, "when a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it".

"That I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions, and that wants to express themselves, and wants to be a strong woman", she said.

Williams, who was under the impression the first violation had been rescinded, returned to Ramos to seek an apology for saying she had received coaching earlier.

"I couldn't eat anything, I felt like I was going to throw up".

"I've never seen anything like it since I have been watching tennis".

But it was too late to avoid the offense and the victor, who won her first Grand Slam, cried and was unable to enjoy a historic moment.

Chair umpire Carlos Ramos warned Williams for getting coaching during a match, which isn't allowed.

"To lose a game for saying that is not fair", Williams said.

Osaka ahead 15-love, Williams told Ramos he should have retracted the initial warning for coaching.

During a press conference, Williams criticized the calls from Ramos as sexist.

"When I was growing up, I did a whole report on her in third grade", Osaka said.

During a changeover, Williams resumed her argument with the umpire, this time saying he was attacking her character and was a "thief". This is a grand slam final'. "There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things and because they are men [the same punishment] does not happen to them".

In the wake of Osaka's first Grand Slam triumph, there were messages of support for Williams as well as those condemning her behavior and agreeing with the umpire's calls.

"Being called a cheater, she felt even more humiliated", Mouratoglou said.

Verbal abuse is defined as a statement about an official, opponent, sponsor, spectator or other person that implies dishonesty or is derogatory, insulting or otherwise.

Meanwhile, Mouratoglou took to Twitter to also take aim at Ramos.

It remains to be seen what will be the decision taken by the top leaders of the tournament and women's tennis when they study in detail what happened in the 50th edition of the last "big" of the year.

Williams came to Osaka's defence after a controversial end to play in NY.

"It's weird in the women's game where they have coaching", said Barker. "Second, we all know that all the coaches coach at every match, all year long, from the first of January all the way to the 31st of December".
