Serena reveals aftermath of US Open loss


//

Serena Williams has revealed how she felt like crying in the immediate aftermath to her outburst at the US Open before a kiss from her young daughter put everything into perspective.

Williams is currently powering through the talk circuit to help promote Berlei’s ‘I Touch Myself’ campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

It has been over two weeks now since her epic rant at the US Open when she turned on umpire Carlos Ramos over three code violations during her loss to Naomi Osaka at Flushing Meadow.

Williams denied she was being coached and claimed she was being treated differently to male players but that didn’t save her from a total of $24,000 in fines from the US Tennis Association.

Speaking to Mia Freedman on her podcast for Mamamia, Williams spoke about the first thing she wanted to do after getting off the court and heading home for the night.

“Besides cry?” Williams said. “I don’t know it was interesting, I got in the car and Olympia was in the car.

“It’s so weird, she started giving me kisses, she never gives me kisses, she doesn’t even know how to give kisses and she just grabbed me and started giving me kisses.

“I was like this little baby is so smart. It’s just hard to be too down when you have someone to take care of. Like, I have to take care of this person, I have to do this type of stuff so it puts everything in perspective.”

The interview was recorded four days after Williams lost the final in straight sets to Osaka in New York and she admitted she was still battling.

“I’m ok, I’m not great but doing the best that I can and trying to move forward,’ Williams said.

“Most of all I’m spending time with Olympia as you can hear in the background … and you realise the things that really matter.”

Williams also spoke to Lisa Wilkinson from The Project in an interview that aired this week with her publicist stepping in after she had asked her quota of four questions about the US Open.

Wilkinson was also warned that Williams would walk out if she asked any questions about a cartoon from the Herald Sun’s Mark Knight that was later slammed for being racist and sexist.
