Williams only message Saturday night was a brief Instagram video of her 1-year-old daughter Olympia, wearing a miniature version of her moms tutu and little sneakers, toddling with her beloved doll, Qai Qai. Williams then accused Ramos of being a "thief" for taking a point away from her and he gave her a third violation, docking a game. Her dream was to play her idol at the U.S. Open.
Williams, whose first crack at joining Australian Court atop the list of most Grand Slam titles ended in defeat at this year's Wimbledon final, knows she has come a long way since the Miami defeat to Osaka.
"I'll tell her first of all that I stood up for what I believed in I stood up for what was right", Williams said.
Everything said and done, this was hard on Osaka. It's on the commercials, it's everywhere.
But here's betting it makes you feel something. I don't know, I hope Serena isn't mad at me.

"I was on the far other end, so I'm not sure".
"I felt like I had to focus". When Osaka broke back with the aid of two double faults and a backhand into the net from Williams, the American smashed her racquet to the court.
The New York Times notes that it took 12 years for Naomi to become better than her sister, whose career has been slowed by injury. Not since Maria Sharapova was 19 in 2006 has the U.S. Open had a younger women's champion.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe congratulated Ms Osaka on Twitter, thanking her for "giving Japan a boost of inspiration at this time of hardship" - an apparent reference to last week's Hokkaido quake in northern Japan that killed more than 20 people.
The American appealed for calm in her runners-up speech, asking her supporters to "give credit" to Osaka's achievement, and the victor was then applauded.
"Honestly, it is remarkable", Serena said after her 6-3, 6-0 win over Anastasija Sevastova in the semifinals. "It doesn't change anything for me".
"I really didn't hear anything that was going on".
"I've never seen anything like it since I have been watching tennis".
Osaka was nervous Saturday, making a few phone calls to her sister in Paris to calm her down. "People have not stood up to Serena Williams", Wilson said on a show "Offsiders".
Williams continued to release her anger on Ramos, demanding an apology and angrily declaring, "I have never cheated in my life". Honestly, there's a lot I can learn from her from this match. "That's the lesson I think we can all learn from this".
Williams, targetting her seventh USA title, accused Carlos Ramos of treating her differently because she is a woman, in a post match press conference. When a man does the same, he's "outspoken' and there are no repercussions", tweeted the victor of 12 Grand Slam singles titles.
Naomi Osaka: I've learned that I love NY. From the start, Osaka, like a good student, did all of the things that Serena traditionally does to her opponents.
