I'm Legal Gringo! UPS Latina Heat! Haters ❤ me!
Japan's Naomi Osaka beat Williams on Saturday in a Grand Slam showdown that ended in tears for both players -- for different reasons. What was supposed to be a fairy-tale matchup for Osaka and the player she idolizes spun out of control after Williams was handed code violations that she described as unfair.
Ramos first issued a warning to Williams after ruling that her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, gave her hand signals that Ramos said constituted illegal coaching. Williams denied the accusation and could be heard repeatedly demanding an apology from Ramos.
Later in Saturday's match, Ramos docked Williams a point after she smashed her racket upon misplaying a shot.
Ramos then issued Williams a full game penalty after she called him a "thief," saying the comment amounted to verbal abuse.
