Serena Williams has reportedly been fined $17,000 (£13,000) for her three code violations during her defeat to Naomi Osaka in Saturday's U.S. Open final at Flushing Meadows.
The six-time U.S. Open champion was initially handed a warning for coaching, was then docked a point for smashing her racket and was finally given a game penalty for verbal abuse by umpire Carlos Ramos.
Williams now also faces a financial penalty for her behaviour in New York, per Sports Illustrated:
AP Sports offered a breakdown of the fine:
Osaka's first Grand Slam triumph has been overshadowed by Williams' angry outbursts.
Williams' first violation came when the umpire judged a gesture from Patrick Mouratoglou to be coaching.
He offered his reaction after the match, as shown by the Guardian's Bryan Armen Graham:
Her second code violation came in the second set at 3-2 when she smashed her racket in frustration at a close line call.
The decision further infuriated Williams, who walked up to Ramos and shouted at him. She followed that up with further discussion at the changeover with Osaka leading 4-3.
Tennis commentator David Law showed what she said:

‘You are attacking my character and you owe me an apology. You are a liar. You will never umpire on a court of mine as long as you live. Give me my apology. You stole a point from me and you’re thief too.’ - Serena Williams Code violation. Verbal abuse. Docked a game. #bbctennis
Ramos responded by docking Williams a game, leaving Osaka at 5-3 and on the brink of victory. Williams called for the tournament referee amid a toxic atmosphere in New York as the crowd booed and jeered.
The 36-year-old did return to the court but could not stop Osaka taking the win. Osaka's victory was met with further boos as the home crowd showed their support for the American.
Williams offered her thoughts after the game, as shown by SI Tennis:
Her fine will come out of her $1.85 million (£1.5 million) prize money for finishing as runner-up in New York, per Howard Fendrich at AP News.
