Serena Williams Fined $17K For Rules Violations At US Open

September 9, 2018

 

Serena Williams was fined a total of $17,000 for three code  violations during her loss to Naomi Osaka in the U.S. Open final. 


On Sunday, a day after the match, the tournament referee's office  docked Williams $10,000 for ''verbal abuse'' of chair umpire Carlos Ramos, $4,000 for being warned for coaching, and $3,000 for  breaking her racket. 


The money comes out of her prize money of $1.85 million as the  runner-up to Osaka, whose 6-2, 6-4 victory on Saturday made her the first tennis player from Japan to win a Grand Slam singles title.
