(AAP)Serena Williams congratulates Naomi Osaka after her US Open women's final win.

Former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka has questioned the coaching violation handed to Serena Williams by chair umpire Carlos Ramos during the US Open final on Saturday and believes that Ramos should have issued her with a soft warning before dishing out the code violation.

The first violation came when Ramos ruled that Williams was receiving illegal coaching from her coach Patrick Mouratoglou.

Williams was issued a second code violation six games later after smashing her racket as frustration continued to boil over. I do not cheat to win. "He said, 'I understood what you are saying, '" Williams explained after the match. You will never be on a court with me as long as you live. "I'm really grateful I was able to play with you, thank you".

"An umpire so wrecked a big occasion that both players, Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams alike, wound up distraught with tears streaming down their faces during the trophy presentation and an incensed crowd screamed boos at the court", Ms Jenkins wrote. Williams was upset by the accusation, denying that she received any coaching and claiming that her coach was simply giving her a thumbs up.

"I've never seen anything like it. Tennis was the loser and we lost what was potentially a fantastic match", Barker said. "I just want you to know that". Let's make this the best moment we can. We're going to get through this, and let's be positive.

Two-time Australian Open champion and two-time U.S. Open runner-up Victoria Azarenka backed up Williams' stance, writing on Twitter: "If it was men's match, this wouldn't happen like this". And Williams - along with several players, including now-ESPN commentator Chris Evert - pointed out that men who call the umpires names are not usually penalized a game, if penalized at all.

"I've seen other men call other umpirs several things", she said.

Williams took the charge as an attack on her character.

"For me it blows my mind.This is outrageous".

"When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it", When a man does the same, he's "outspoken" and there are no repercussions", King tweeted. "But then when I hugged her at the net, I felt like a little kid again".

According to Williams, life is just about working hard even when you're done; the spice of life is dealing with the ebb and flow of life's challenges, whether they're positive or negative. "They're going to be allowed to do that because of today", Williams said.

The fall-out from this final is likely to rumble on for some time, with the long-time coaching partnership between Williams and Mouratoglou now under real strain.

'But you can not deny there have been a lot worse situations and I'm not going to name names.
