Calling him a "thief" reportedly earned her a full game penalty.

The cartoon created a stir on social media many users have demanded Amul to take it down because they were disappointed that Serena Williams altercation with the on-court umpire has gained more limelight, than Naomi Osaka's win.

Naomi Osaka, Serena Williams and Billie Jean King pose before women's single final of US Open 2018 at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. "You're told to just turn around and try to focus, so I tried to do that, but in my mind I was sort of - like I really wanted to know what was going on".

"I would say a championship match in terms of high-level talent on the court between those two ladies. obviously Naomi deserved to win and she played incredible", Curry told Omnisport.

The Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) have backed those claims following Williams' straight sets defeat to Osaka.

His appearance could prove awkward after several figures from the US Tennis Association, including president Katrina Adams, publicly supported Williams in her sexism allegations.

Williams struggled against her young counterpart, but was repeatedly penalized during the match, causing the tennis icon to lose her cool multiple times.

No charges have yet been laid. "Just a normal family, you would never imagine anything like that happening", he said. Locals said children were often seen playing in the front yard of the home.

Williams received her second penalty for smashing her racket in anger after she committed an error during play.

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.

The first violation was for coaching, which Williams argued against.

Carlos Ramos, the umpire at the center of the storm surrounding Serena Williams at the U.S. Open, was "thrown under a bus" by tennis' governing bodies, says a former top-level umpire. Williams was fined a total of $17,000 for the violations.

"I have had lots of messages saying this is a joke", said one source.

One suggestion being floated is to refuse any match assignments involving Williams until she apologizes for vilifying Ramos. "I think it's a matter of having a conversation with the two guys and saying let's cut it out, let's slow it down, and then perhaps not understanding how they can have the same conversation with the females".

Tennis great John McEnroe, one of the game's most tempestuous characters in his playing days, said the sport must find a way to allow players to express feelings and inject their personality into the game while adhering to certain rules.
