Tennis: Serena Williams fined $17,000 for U.S. open code violations

During Saturday’s match, which she lost 6-2 6-4 to Japan’s Naomi Osaka, Williams, was handed a coaching violation and a point penalty for breaking her racquet before a heated argument with umpire Carlos Ramos ended with her losing a game.

The tournament referee’s office fined the former world number one 10,000 dollars for the “verbal abuse” of umpire Ramos, 4,000 dollars for being warned for coaching and 3,000 dollars for smashing her racket.
