Naomi Osaka, who represents Japan, beat Williams in the final of the grand slam with a score of 6-2, 6-4. In the latest installment of "Serena Williams Must Love Tennis to Put Up With This", the athlete received three fines during her championship match against Naomi Osaka at the US Open on Saturday, eventually losing to Osaka.
The tournament referee's office later fined Williams $17,000 for the incident.
Rowland is also speaking out in support of Osaka, who wept during the trophy ceremony as a belligerent crowd booed her victory.
On Monday's "Off the Bench" podcast with Danny Kanell and Raja Bell, Bell had plenty to say on the topic.
Her stance was swiftly backed by the WTA Tour's chief executive Steve Simon and United States great Billie Jean King, both of whom also questioned the initial code violation handed to Williams for on-court coaching. Kanell added that for Ramos to take over the match in such a way on such a big stage was "wrong".
In fact, Harlow and Brennan strongly implied the only real issue was the fact that Williams argued with a judge. Retired tennis player James Blake said that Williams should have at least been given a warning by Ramos. 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.

Messi then dribbled past a defender, before blasting a right footed shot off of the far post and into the net. Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho fired a pass ahead for Messi in the 61st minute for that breakaway goal.
Greg Rusedski says Serena Williams' suggestions she was a victim of sexism in her US Open final defeat are "unjustified". "Maybe they'll do us right in Australia since the U.S. couldn't do me right". "I think that was poor form", said Vandeweghe. "This is her first grand slam".
Annabel Croft said that, while she had sympathy for Williams, her claim that she had been treated differently because she is a woman was wide of the mark.
Williams was one of only two women punished for on-court coaching, alongside Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova, while no men were penalised for this offence. Communications of any kind, audible or visible, between a player and a coach may be construed as coaching.
King took the opportunity to espouse her long-held view that coaching should be allowed "on every point". "She felt humiliated by the warning", said the Frenchman.
"The umpire can choose to exercise it or not", she said in a live video on her Instagram page. There has to be a clear rule to it.
After the controversy, she left the suit at home and wore a stylish black-and-brown one-shoulder silhouette dress with a tulle skirt at her first US Open match this year. "It is the inconsistency".
