In the new cartoon, which mocks the heated exchanges between runner-up Serena Williams and chair umpire Carlos Ramos, Knight depicts the 23-time Grand Slam champion as a child throwing a tantrum as the umpire says to eventual champion Naomi Osaka, "Can you just let her win?"

Williams was incensed in the first instance when Ramos assessed her a code violation for receiving coaching from her box, although coach Patrick Mouratoglou admitted in an interview with ESPN that he was trying to advise her with a hand gesture and said that all coaches do it. Serena denied seeing him.

The cartoon features a big-lipped scatter-haired Serena stomping on her racket with Osaka curiously blond.

"You will never, ever be on another court of mine, you are the liar", she fumed and he handed her a game penalty for a third violation for verbal abuse that cost her a game.

At a press conference following the match, Williams said that she didn't regret her comments to Ramos and hopes that her actions on Saturday will mean that in the future, other female tennis players won't have to deal with what she and many see as a double standard in the sport.

CEO Steve Simon said: 'Yesterday also brought to the forefront of the question of whether different standards are applied to men and women in the officiating of matches. "We do not believe that this was done". They're going to be allowed to do that because of today.

"Always something happens to me here", she huffed at tournament referee Brian Earley, summoned to the court after she failed to get satisfaction from Ramos.

Zimbabwean Cara Black, victor of winner of 10 Grand Slam titles in doubles and mixed doubles, said she felt sorry for Ramos.

BBC tennis presenter Sue Barker, who said: "I've sat courtside watching the men ranting at umpires and they haven't been given a violation". Harlow read from none that disputed Williams' point of view or even criticized her behavior.

Williams, of course, lost in controversial fashion at the U.S. Open final on Saturday night. Osaka's victory was marred by booing from the crowd over Williams' treatment, with Williams putting her arm around a tearful Osaka and addressing the crowd. Retired tennis player James Blake said that Williams should have at least been given a warning by Ramos. "I think there has to be some consistency across the board".

"The WTA supports coaching through its on-court coaching rule, but further review is needed".

After the controversy, she left the suit at home and wore a stylish black-and-brown one-shoulder silhouette dress with a tulle skirt at her first US Open match this year.
