Ramos, who stood by his officiating on Tuesday, initially cited Williams for getting coaching signals, then docked her a point for smashing her racket and then docked her a game for haranguing him, including calling him a "thief".

The ITF's support for Ramos comes after the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) expressed disappointment over the handling of the match and the USTA's plans to review its communication policies after a string of umpiring controversies.

"Because the young player outplayed her in the first set, I think pressure got her more than anything".

The game's top umpires are considering forming a union because they believe Carlos Ramos was "hung out to dry" by the authorities during and after the US Open women's final despite upholding the rules in sanctioning Serena Williams.

Adams also clarified her comments during the trophy ceremony in which she appeared to imply Williams' loss wasn't the outcome they wanted.

"She said that she was proud of me and that I should know that the crowd wasn't booing at me", Osaka told DeGeneres.

In response to criticism from U.S. media and on social media channels, Herald Sun editor Damon Johnston said, "A champion tennis player had a mega tantrum on the world stage, and Mark's cartoon depicted that. I think that's probably the context of the conversation".

In the fallout of the incident, the U.S. Tennis Association and Women's Tennis Association both came out in support of Williams.

"Three days before I had drawn a cartoon about Nick Kyrgios being led off by the ears, like you used to do with your children", he said.

In the second set of Williams' match against Naomi Osaka, Ramos warned Williams for receiving coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches. "She is going for her first Grand Slam title, grew up in NY, that was her moment", she added. "She has been dedicated to tennis - she deserved her moment and unfortunately she didn't get it and everything has been overshadowed by Serena's behaviour". "That for me has been really noticeable".
