US Open: Serena Williams Fined Over Violation of Code

23-times Grand Slam champion, Serena Williams has been fined a sum of $17,000 (£13,000) for infringement of code amid the US Open last on Saturday.

Serena was beaten by Naomi Osaka in straight sets but the challenge will be remembered for a long time  with her rift with seat umpire Carlos Ramos.

She was hammered with a code infringement for instructing, for racquet mishandle and for verbal manhandle towards Ramos after she considered him a 'hoodlum' and a 'liar'.

It has been a standard practice to be fined for infringement of code at Grand Slam occasions and the cash will leave her $1.85m (£1.4m) sprinters up prize cash.

Serena was fined $10,000 (£7,700) for verbal manhandle of Ramos, $4,000 (£3,000) for being cautioned for instructing, and $3,000 (£2,300) for breaking her racquet.
For every infringement fine passed out can add up to up to $20,000 (£14,400) and Serenas' fundamental obligation to pay was for her verbal mishandle of the umpire.
