The headlines were supposed to be about Williams' bid for a record-equalling 24th grand slam title and Osaka trying to become Japan's first slam victor, but instead an argument with umpire Carlos Ramos that escalated dominated the match. "It was good that I played her because I kind of know how she plays now", Williams said.
"I really feel like I don't want to overthink this match, so I'm not going to think that she's so much better than she was in Miami".

As Serena trailed 4-3, she continued ranting and called Ramos a "thief" during a changeover. But because of her prior warning, Serena was assessed a point penalty, which gave Osaka a 15-0 lead in the 1-1 service game.
