Serena engages in 2nd-set dispute with umpire

Osaka storms past Keys to reach first Grand Slam final

Williams vs. Osaka: A Dream Match at the US Open

Serena Williams' behavior in Saturday's U.S. Open final divided the tennis world after she called the chair umpire a "liar" and a "thief" and said he treated her differently than male players during her loss to Naomi Osaka.

Serena Williams' heated dispute with the umpire during the US Open final is the latest controversy involving the tennis superstar in recent months.

The American appealed for calm in her runners-up speech, asking her supporters to "give credit" to Osaka's achievement, and the victor was then applauded.

"If I look at my box and they say, "C'mon" or "Good job", I don't know what else to do". I haven't cheated in my life.

She said: 'Ever since I was little he's always been telling me these wise words but I've never really wanted to listen.

Flood Watch for Parts of WNY, Leftover rain from Gordon
Rainfall rates should stay manageable in most spots, but travelers should plan ahead for some delays at the start of the week. Environment Canada said it may issue further warnings as there is "significant uncertainty" for the rain's path and timing.

Naomi Osaka: I never thought that way, but since you said it, I'm concerned.

While Williams refused to read too much into that result considering she was competing in only her second tournament following the birth of Alexis Olympia, the win should offer some added measure of belief for Osaka, who has not been shy about describing her admiration for the American.

"I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff". Williams was penalized a point and then a game by chair umpire Carl Ramos in the final.

"That's why I said I don't want to answer the questions [about the end]".

Later in the match, Ramos docked Williams a point after she smashed her racket upon misplaying a shot.

Florence becomes hurricane, threatens direct hit on U.S. Southeast
Because of the uncertainty of the storm's track, Northam encouraged all state residents to prepare for impact from this storm. This, unfortunately will mean that Florence has a much higher chance of affecting the USA east coast by later in the week.

Serena Williams argued with officials over receiving coaching during her US Open final defeat. "This is unbelievable", she told Ramos.

Osaka's triumph prevented Williams, 36, from capturing a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title.

After Osaka's victory, the crowd erupted, with many booing in defense of Williams.

However, people felt Serena was just covering up her meltdown and temper flare by pushing out the sensitive topic of sexism.

Williams tried to compose herself again but it wasn't enough to beat Osaka - who cruises to win her first Grand Slam championship - beating her idol. She waved her racket in the lineswoman's direction and then shook a ball in her clenched fist as she threatened to "shove it down" her throat. "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". We'll get through it. Let's not boo anymore... Wilson then tore into Williams's declaration that she was speaking out to help other women, labelling her a sham. You have only to watch the US Open press conference footage - highlighted by the director Ava DuVernay - when yet another journalist asked Osaka to explain her Haitian-Japanese heritage, to be reminded of how women of colour have to justify their existence in the sport.
