Tennis Champion Serena Williams has been fined $17,000 by the US Tennis Association for three code violations at the US Open.

Williams who lost the final game to first timer, 20-year old Naomi Osaka, had gotten into a heated argument with the umpire Carlos Ramos, calling him a liar and a cheat for penalising her over alleged coaching.

Serena was also penalised for breaking her racket in anger.

Serena also accused Ramos of sexism.

The fine is made up of $10,000 for the verbal abuse offence, $4,000 for coaching, and $3,000 for racket abuse.

Naomi became the first Japanese and first Haitian to win a grand slam title.
