"I guess I'd like to hang out with my sister - I haven't seen her since Wimbledon", said Osaka, who has become an unlikely hero in a country still reeling after a summer of deadly typhoons and earthquakes.

Serena Williams produced an epic meltdown in her argument with chair umpire Carlos Ramos.

But as per a data analysis compiled by the Times, the male players were slapped with 1,1517 fines as compared to 535 fines for female players in the Grand Slam tournaments for the period between 1998 to 2018.

"I've never been called for coaching, but the racket abuse, the verbal abuse, that's just part of the sport".

The outlier, intriguingly, is coaching, the issue which ignited this sorry saga.

The five-time snooker world champion has suggested that the whole US Open palaver could have been avoided if only female referees were used in women's sports, and male refs in male sports.
