Serena Williams Pens Powerful Essay About "Excruciating" US Open Match

Fabio Fognini 'I wish a bomb would explode in Wimbledon'

Serena Williams revealed Tuesday that she consulted a therapist after her infamous 2018 US Open final meltdown in which her bitter war of words with the umpire overshadowed Naomi Osaka's maiden Grand Slam victory.

Williams, 37, considered the greatest female tennis player of all time, smashed her racket and verbally attacked umpire Carlos Ramos, calling him "a liar", after he gave her several penalties during the U.S. Open Final.

The then-20-year-old Osaka prevailed against her idol 6-2, 6-4 in NY. "But now, seeing her text putting everything in perspective, I realized she was right", Williams wrote in an essay.

"I felt defeated and disrespected by a sport that I love-one that I had dedicated my life to and that my family truly changed, not because we were welcomed, but because we wouldn't stop winning".

"If I offended anyone, I apologize", Fognini said in Italian. "She was not giving it to me".

When asked if she believed she actually caused $10,000 worth of damage, Williams jokingly said she might have underestimated her true strength. I feel like I've been there in every moment, looking to impose myself.

She writes to Osaka: "I had no idea the media would pit us against each other".

Williams wrote a letter to Osaka, and in it said she wish she could "live that moment over again". "I would never, ever want the light to shine away".

"I mean, I guess if you could tell me, I would appreciate it".

"It was really satisfying", said Williams, whose clay court season was affected by a knee injury.

The Serena-Murray partnership - dubbed "SerAndy" by fans and "MurRena" by the players themselves - took down No.14 seeds Raquel Atawo and Fabrice Martin in two sets, 7-5, 6-3 to advance to the third round. 'No one has stood up for themselves the way you have and you need to continue trailblazing'.

Through the exchange, Williams writes, she realized why she had struggled to "get over" the U.S. Open.

Williams not only went on to win the US Open five more times, but she also won the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon multiple times to bring her current grand slam singles medal count to 23.

Once Williams received Osaka's response, "tears rolled down" her face.

"It was really, actually, very interesting for me to be on the opposite end, because I felt her up her game and her intensity", Riske said with a smile. Williams is seeking her eighth women's singles title at the event.

In the final, Williams lost a game after arguing with the referee, prompting an worldwide discussion about the unequal treatment of women in the sport of tennis. In the way you're asking your question, you're being quite disrespectful and you're patronising me.

Riske, who plays Serena in the last eight on Tuesday, has only played doubles alongside the 23-time major victor, but never really stood across the net from her.
