Serena Williams Fined $17,000 For Running Her “Dirty Mouth” At The Us Open… The Fine Will Affect Her Prize Money As The Runner-up

Serena Williams has been fined $17,000 for three code violations during the U.S. Open final.

Williams was fined $10,000 for “verbal abuse” of chair umpire Carlos Ramos, $4,000 for being warned for coaching, and $3,000 for breaking her racket by the tournament referee’s office.

The money will come out of Serena William’s prize money of $1.85 million as the runner-up.

You recall, Williams lost to Naomi Osaka in Saturday’s final.

Serena clashed with chair umpire Ramos, demanding an apology after he initially issued a warning for a code violation in the second set’s second game for receiving coaching, which is not allowed during Grand Slam matches.
