A much more sinister plotline came from Serena's controversial penalization at Saturday's women's final against Naomi Osaka, with the 23-time Grand Slam victor accusing chair umpireCarlos Ramos of sexism. "They feel that no one has their back when they have to make unpopular calls".
In the women's final, Ramos issued Williamsthree code violations: a coaching warning, a point penalty for racquet abuse, and then verbal abuse when Williams finished extended complaints by calling him a "thief", docking her a game.
Williams was unhappy at the violation call and complained to Ramos she hadn't taken any signals.
The International Tennis Federation offered support for Ramos on Monday evening, saying in a statement: "Mr Ramos's decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules and were reaffirmed by the US Open's decision to fine Ms Williams for the three offences".
And the judge at the heart of the controversy, chair umpireCarlos Ramos, has said only that he is "fine" and is in a "delicate position".
After the match, Twitter users and tennis commentators alike said the penalties assessed to Williams were excessively harsh, and some said they may have reflected sexism and racism in tennis officiating.
Of his social-media commentators, he added: "I tried to reply to these people but they just don't listen".

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) also supported Williams' claims, while Billie Jean King, founder of the WTA and victor of 12 grand slam singles titles, toldCNN Tuesday that though Williams was "out of line", Ramos had aggravated the situation.
There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials.
Her comments mark a change of heart after King initially backed the 23-time grand clam champion, tweeting after the final: "When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it".
He is still set to officiate a Davis Cup match this Friday between the United States and Croatia.
