Meanwhile, The Guardian reports that the game's top umpires are discussing forming a union because they believe Carlos Ramos, the umpire who penalized Williams for three code violations Saturday, was "hung out to dry" by some of tennis' governing organizations.
Williams, unhappy with several penalties Ramos issued her during the match (which cost her a point and a game on her second and third violations), berated Ramos for an extended period of time during the match, demanding he apologize, calling him a thief, and inciting the crowd against him.
She was thwarted in her bid for a record-tying 24th Slam singles crown in losing to Japan's Naomi Osaka.
DeGeneres assured the softly-spoken Osaka, who is only 20 and admitted in the past that Williams was her childhood hero, that she was a deserved victor of the tournament. I really don't. I think men and women are treated in this way or the other way depending on the situation.
The Herald Sun has defended a blatantly racist Mark Knight cartoon depicting Serena Williams' US Open final loss, saying that criticism of the image - and there has been a lot of criticism - is overblown. "As an umpire you're supposed to keep the flow of the match going and he did just the opposite".
Curry was speaking as part of the 2018 Stephen Curry Asian Tour powered by Under Armour, unveiling SC's new shoes "UA Curry 5".
US Open champion Naomi Osaka was a guest on The Ellen Show and got to banter with host Ellen Degeneres.
"He needed to tell Serena he can't apologise, he did the right thing there, he's got to be the boss - but all he had to say to Serena is: 'I am not attacking your character'".
Another major debate arising post-U.S.
The incident has gobbled headlines all week, with some, such as Billie Jean King and USTA head Katrina Adams, saying tennis has a double standard in which men are not similarly punished for outbursts and others, such as Martina Navratilova and Mary Carillo, defending tennis's rules.
Williams' outrage at receiving a code violation for her coach's hand gestures could be avoided in future by allowing coaching during matches at all levels of professional tennis, rather than having different rules for different tournaments.
"I'm fine, given the circumstances", Carlos Ramos told Portuguese newspaper Tribuna Expresso.
But former British number one Annabel Croft didn't think Carlos Ramos was sexist, rather that he's a strict official "who takes nothing from any opponent whether they're male or female". "They feel that no one has their back when they have to make unpopular calls".
