This is said to be because the CEO of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), Steve Simon, and the U.S. Tennis Association President Katrina Adams, had released statements in support of Serena.
"I've seen other men call other umpires several things", Williams said at the press conference after the match. Viewers could not have guessed that she won by looking at her crestfallen, teary-eyed expression throughout the immediate aftermath of the match.
On Wednesday, Osaka appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her historic U.S. Open win and her new game.
"But if you were talking about my tennis, I think my tennis is not very Japanese".
Williams' antics during her heated exchange with Ramos have since become the biggest controversy in the sporting world for the past week, with tennis greats speaking out both to condemn and support Williams' explanations for her behavior.

President Trump plans to visit Florence-impacted areas next week
People online were aghast that the president would somehow blame Democrats for an accurate death toll being reported. There are also no state or federal guidelines in the U.S. for calculating storm or hurricane-related deaths.
"I saw how Serena was being treated, and then I thought about coming back to my locker one day as a player, and there was [a reporter] in my chair", said Aaron, who endured racist taunts and death threats as he marched toward Babe Ruth's record. Williams was left baffled, furious, and in tears, by a decision she says was grounded in sexism. "Will the rules change in Serena's matches?".
After Ramos docked Williams for receiving coaching instructions during the match, the tennis star broke her racket and berated the umpire, resulting in two more violations. She was called emotional, her rage labelled a meltdown, a tantrum.
Williams called chair umpire Carlos Ramos a "thief' and a "liar" for charging her with a point penalty, before ultimately enforcing a game penalty against the American".
Williams was fined $17,000 for her violations, which was taken out of her runner-up prize total of $1.85 million. This is not fair. I don't believe it's a good idea to apply a standard of, 'If men can get away with it, women should be able to, too.' Rather, I think the question we have to ask ourselves is this: "What is the right way to behave to honor our sport and to respect our opponents?"
Sadly, in what should have been a triumphant moment for Naomi Osaka-becoming the first U.S. Open victor from Japan-we got a playbook of leadership faults to learn from.
