During the dramatic match that she ultimately lost to upstart Naomi Osaka, Williams was penalized after chair umpire Carlos Ramos issued a warning for a code violation for receiving coaching, which is banned in Grand Slams.
In incredible scenes at Flushing Meadows on Saturday, Williams, aiming to equal Court's record of grand slam triumphs, received a series of code violations en route to a 6-2 6-4 defeat to her 20-year-old opponent.
U.S. great Billie Jean King was among those coming down hard on Serena's side in her claim that chair umpire Carlos Ramos penalized her for comments that a male player could have gotten away with.
Things seemed to settle down as Williams went on to break Osaka for a 3-1 lead, but she gave the break right back in the next game with a pair of double faults, prompting the former champion to smash her racquet on the court.
She accused Mr Ramos of being a liar when he penalised her for cheating, saying she would rather lose than cheat to win. The tennis superstar then approached Ramos to deny being coached or cheating.
The deduction enraged Williams and she screamed at Ramos at the next changeover, drawing the game penalty after she called him a thief.
"I have never cheated in my life!"
Afterwards, the American said it was "sexist" to have been penalised a game.
Tennis legend Billie Jean King, whose name is on the Open facility, came to Williams' defense, too, echoing sentiment that sexism was at work.
"I've seen other men call other umpires several things".

Her boss, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau , even though it was a good idea to antagonize Trump at his failed G7 summit in June. Delivering on that promise with plenty of time to convey facts to voters means his prospects for reelection look excellent.
He responded by issuing a third code violation, which results in a lost game. Honestly, there's a lot I can learn from her from this match.
"When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalized for it", wrote King. It's all the evidence you'll need to understand why Williams reacted the way she did. Even during the match, whenever she was faced with a tough spot, she kept telling herself to try to do what Williams would do. When a man does the same, he's "outspoken" & and there are no repercussions.
The U.S. Open champion stood in tears on the stage during the trophy presentation.
The crowd booed in support of Williams.
Williams was hit with a first violation for Mouratoglou coaching her with a hand signal in the second set. She demanded an apology from Ramos.
Williams said she was hopeful that her actions will help change women's tennis for the better. "I just want to say thank you for watching the match".
When it came time for Osaka to speak, she also acknowledged the hard moment.
Amid all the drama, Osaka remained composed as she became Japan's first victor of a Slam.
The women's US Open final on Saturday ended with both the victor and loser standing on the court in tears and the crowd booing loudly-and the blame for such an freakish conclusion rests squarely on the fragile ego of chair umpire Carlos Ramos.
