The Women's Tennis Association also backed Williams, with their CEO Steve Simon saying, "The WTA believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men versus women".

She first erupted at umpire Carlos Ramos after being given a code violation for coaching, after her coach Patrick Mouratoglou was spotted giving hand signals in the first set - which is against the rules.

"I felt a little bit sad, because I wasn't really sure if they were booing at me or if it wasn't the outcome that they wanted,"she said on the "Today" show this week". 'She's right about the guys being held to a different standard, there's no question.' The Australian 24-time Grand Slam victor Margaret Court said: 'We always had to go by the rules.

Williams went on to allege that male players were treated more favourably than female players.

"Ellen hit me up and told me she was having you on the show, so I wanted to send my love and support and just say congratulations", the actor said on the video.

Williams lost her cool with the official in the final after being penalised for receiving coaching and smashing her racquet, calling Carlos Ramos a "thief", an outburst that cost her a game penalty.

In winning her maiden Grand Slam, Osaka more than doubled her career prize money, adding $3.8 million to her total.

There are men out here that do a lot worse but because I'm a woman, because I'm a woman you're going to take this away from me?

Naomi Osaka fans weren't anxious about Serena Williams' complaint in the US Open final. Amid the swirl of high-pressure matches, interviews and endorsement negotiations, it's a question she hasn't dwelt on. Later, she smashed her racket and was penalized a point. Appreciation for what the 20-year-old achieved in defeating Williams has since been gathering momentum, with Nissan now appointing her its brand ambassador. "I just never knew when".

Ramos told the Portuguese newspaper, Tribuna Expresso, "I'm fine, given the circumstances".

"It's a delicate situation, but umpiring "a la carte" doesn't exist".

Ramos will umpire Croatia v United States of America in the Davis Cup this weekend and ahead of that tie, U.S. men's captain Jim Courier told the Associated Press news agency: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicised".
