Serena Williams "went too far" with her controversial rant at an umpire during the U.S. Open final, according to Roger Federer. Williams received a code violation for coaching, a penalty point for racket abuse and a game penalty for calling the umpire a "liar" and a "thief" during her defeat by Naomi Osaka, with her outburst overshadowing the biggest win of her opponent's career.Ramos, however, was required under the rules to impose a code violation on the player, not the coach, if he believed coaching had taken place. Williams received another code violation for smashing her racket, leading to Ramos docking her a point.
