Congrats to Osaka and it's great for tennis. Very well played. That umpire was out of line in my eyes. The point penalty was enough but a game penalty? Serena has never got a coaching violation in her career. Just keep it fair play because she doesn't cheat to win. I wish Serena just not let it get to her and move on though. Should not have lost her cool.
She should have let it go but that is easier said than done when your emotions are high and adrenaline is rushing. The majority of the time Serena is able to channel that in to her game she could not. But she played much better the second set and it showed.
Osaka did a great job though and I am happy for her. I hope to see a reach match at AO.
The warning for coaching was a bit unusal - but also pretty irrelevant, it was just a warning. Williams reaction to it was totally out of proportion. Thereafter Serena left the umpire really no other choice.
I was only talking about that specific game, not all of the match. Because Osaka was outstanding. Her game, her composure. And she certainly doesn't deserve this travesty of a ceremony. Serena lost her mind and her reason. She shouldn't have reacted this way.
