Let's go to NY now for the U.S. Open women's finals.
The WTA said Williams and U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka both have "great integrity". "What the chair umpire did - even if there are people who might be listening and saying "oh Serena went too far"- what he did was he took control away from the players".
Williams' normally lethal serve misfired, hitting a double fault in each service game of the first set.
"Thank you to the crowd, you really are the best in the world". As the cameras zoomed in on Williams, we knew this wasn't about to end soon. What just happened here?
"Everyone thinks women should be thrilled when we get crumbs". You know what I mean? First, there was a warning for coaching.
Murray won previous year with Martin Hingis and she was in the box Saturday to cheer the doubles team at Arthur Ashe Stadium. And he admitted afterwards that he was coaching her.
"I don't cheat to win", she said. Her spiraling anger at the call, most of it seemingly at the notion that she would cheat, caused her to lose focus.
Osaka and Keys, last year's beaten finalist, are both players built in the same power mould as Williams but the most impressive thing about Osaka's performance was the rest of her game and especially the poise she showed to save all 13 break points she faced.
It was no real surprise to see Williams blitz Anastasija Sevastova 6-3 6-0 to reach her 31st slam final but Osaka's clash with Keys was a much more hard match to predict. Williams told Ramos. "You owe me an apology".

She was given a second violation for smashing her racquet, and again yelled at the chair umpire who had given her the first warning. And he nailed her with a game penalty. That made it 5-3 for Osaka. It was freakish and surreal.
Williams was gracious as Osaka wrapped up her first Grad Slam title, as she urged the crowd at Arthur Ashe stadium to applaud the newly crowned champion.
Osaka, almost three years younger than her opponent, had never been beyond the fourth round at a slam prior to this week but, bar a very close match against fellow 20-year-old Aryna Sabalenka, has steamrollered through the draw. There's been a lot of conversation about the differential treatment or the alleged differences in treatment of men and women.
What was most problematic for Williams on the scoreboard was that she was unable to keep up with a version of herself. "I'm really glad I was able to do that". In addition to taking both her break point chances, she was almost untouchable on her own serve, winning 18 of 26 points, including two by ace. Eventually, Willams called Ramos "a thief", drawing a third violation and costing her a game. He said he was just trying to adhere to the rules.
He will face Juan Martin del Potro in Sunday's final. Tell me about her very, very briefly. "This is her first grand slam".
"She just let her playing do the talking, " said Tokyo resident Noritomo Kusumoto.
20 seed, seemed torn-regretful, even-about her victory. Williams coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, acknowledged afterward that he did try to signal Williams, but didnt think she had seen him and added that he thinks every player gets coaching during matches.
GOLDMAN: Oh, no. She was crying.
