Serena Williams is sticking to her story and pointing to the double standard.

The problem, essentially, is that there are too many folks in charge and too many different sets of rules.

At the same event Williams received two violations, men received 86 code violations while women received only 22 in total, reported The Telegraph.

In her first interview addressing the controversial U.S. Open final, Serena Williams insisted she did not receive coaching during the match despite what her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, said following her loss.

Hazard 'maybe' the best in Europe, says Chelsea boss Sarri
Despite the fact the Belgian didn't start Chelsea's first two games of the season, he's already notched five goals for the season. And that resilience could yet yield an unlikely title challenge after finishing 30 points adrift of Manchester City last season.

Now on a "six-figure" salary with Adidas that will expire this year, the 20-year-old Japanese-Haitian athlete is reportedly signing a contract with the apparel label worth an estimated $8.5 million a year.

That will come out of Williams' runner-up check of $1.85 million. In addition, Nissan will support her activities as a tennis player, including the provision of Nissan vehicles at her tour destinations.

Let's start with the racket. However, as soon as a player questions an umpire's integrity they are gone. "I truly believe he was trying to do what he felt like was right at the time and always in heated situations it's going to be a very sticky, sticky spot whenever it's in a Grand Slam final like that".

Then there's the coaching. "There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things, and because they are men, that doesn't happen to them", Williams said to the umpire, Fox News reported. As tennis great Martina Navratilova points out, no one should act this way on court, particularly a champion. And it is extremely rare to see it called, particularly in a major final.

She was involved in a row with Ramos mid-match that saw her label him a "thief" and a "liar" for receiving coaching during the fame.

However, her success was overshadowed by controversy surrounding Williams, who was handed three code violations by Carlos Ramos before accusing the umpire of sexism.

There was also the inevitable comparison made between how Ramos handled his duties in the final and how chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani intervened during Nick Kyrgios' second-round match. However, Williams preferred to talk about her fashion business, telling business owners to "Really figure out "what I can do to revamp [my business] and bring it back to the top".

"Ramos is tough, one of the best umpires in the world", Strycova added.

Djokovic captures U.S. Open title for 14th major championship
Never was that more apparent than the game that stood out on this evening, with Djokovic serving while down 4-3 in the second set. Del Potro was back in a grand slam final for the first time since defeating Federer to win at Flushing Meadows nine years ago.

Naomi Osaka's trophy presentation at the 2018 U.S. Open was unusual, to say the least.
