Tennis superstar Serena Williams didn't let umpire Carlos Ramos get away with calling her a cheater in the finals of US Open, and said the latter owed her an apology.
Williams lost the match to Japan's Naomi Osaka, 6-2, 6-4, and her anger in the court has already become a global topic.
Later in a press meet, Williams called out sexism in tennis.
Ramos penalized Williams, which gave Osaka an edge
On the court, Williams was handed over several code penalties by Ramos. The first one was a warning for coaching, second for breaking her racket, which gave a point to Osaka, and the third one was for calling the umpire 'thief'.
At the end of these penalties, Osaka was up to 5-3, meaning one point and she could win the match.
Williams says she has never cheated, stands for what's right
Williams told Ramos she hadn't been coached, and wouldn't ever cheat. "I have never cheated in my life. I have a daughter and I stand for what is right and I have never cheated," she said asserting she would rather lose.
