Serena Williams insisted she did not cheat during the US Open final before accusing chair umpire Carlos Ramos of sexism after her defeat against Naomi Osaka.

Williams received an initial code violation for coaching, a penalty point for racket abuse and a game penalty for calling the umpire a “thief”.

“I’ve seen other men call other umpires several things,” Williams said in her press conference.

“I’m here fighting for women’s rights and for women’s equality and for all kinds of stuff. For me to say ‘thief’ and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark. He’s never taken a game from a man because they said ‘thief’.”

“For me it blows my mind. But I’m going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equality. I just feel like the fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions, and that want to express themselves, and want to be a strong woman.”

“They’re going to be allowed to do that because of today. Maybe it didn’t work out for me, but it’s going to work out for the next person.”
