Serena Williams talks fashion, not fouls, at Las Vegas event

Serena Williams at Las Vegas

"We've never had signals".

"Serena Williams has part of it right".

Williams shared this with a reporter out of Australia in response to accusations from an umpire that her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, was signaling her from the sidelines as she played against Naomi Osaka, a 20-year-old phenom who beat her. Umpire Carlos Ramos' accusation was the basis of one of three code violations he leveled against Williams, costing her the game.

Williams later smashed her racquet, resulting in a code violation and a point deduction, which she argued over with Ramos. The first came when Ramos ruled that she was receiving illegal coaching.

"He said he made a motion - I don't understand what he was talking about", Williams told interviewer Lisa Wilkinson.

In her interview with "The Project", she also doubled down on what she calls the double standard in tennis between male and female players.

In Williams' semi-final match in 2009 against Belgian Kim Clijsters, her deplorable behaviour was whistled by most spectators, but her outburst while losing against Osaka has drawn public support for this foul-mouthed great of women's tennis.

The incident drew a volley of commentary in recent days.

Cruz: 'if Beto wins, BBQ will be illegal'
The two will face-off on Friday night in Dallas in the first of three debates between now and Election Day. Also different in this poll - Cruz is above water when it comes to his favorability rating, 52 to 43.

Speaking out for the first time since her controversial defeat at the U.S. Open last weekend in NY, tennis great Serena Williams says she and her coach have never used hand signals.

A cartoon caricature of Williams that appeared in the Herald Sun inflamed the controversy further, drawing comparisons to USA racial stereotypes of the past.

Sarah Robb O'Hagan, chief executive of Flywheel Sports, lauded Williams for calming the audience at the US Open final after it started booing.

"It's been quite the week", O'Hagan said before steering the conversation away from controversy.

The moment that sparked it all.

Whether an instance of coaching is penalised ir not also depends heavily on the nature of the umpire and their personal disposition. When are you going to give me my apology? "That's what it's all about".

The 23-time Grand Slam champion said not a word Friday about gender equality in sports or an argument she had last weekend with the chair umpire at the US Open final in NY. "I work really, really hard at my game. And I'm working incredibly hard at being a mom".
