Patrick Mouratoglou admitted he was coaching Serena Williams from the stands — as does every other tennis coach on tour.

“Everybody does it — you all know it,’’ Mouratoglou said following Williams’ controversial loss in Saturday’s U.S. Open final against 20-year-old Naomi Osaka. “There is the rule and there’s a psychology the chair umpire is supposed to have. He would say he saw you coach, do a movement and give a warning. What he did was so extreme. It’s a shame.

The article goes on to state the following:

“There’s a rule, yes, but you don’t screw a Grand Slam final and make it the drama the way it was. It could have easily been avoided if there was psychology.’’

In fairness, the chair umpire, Carlos Ramos gave a code violation — which is a warning, however official. Williams was upset, but then flipped out when her second code violation for breaking her racket after losing the seventh game of the second set cost her a point.

Williams kept harping on needing an “apology’’ from Ramos for essentially accusing her of cheating.

  1. Serena and her sister have been picked on by fans and the tennis officials. I was so bad in Palm Beach that neither sisters would play there again…….Serena may be the best Tennis player in history. Rather than goad her, sit back and enjoy the tennis. Another example of white hate. And I am a white man, ashamed of many of my countrymen and women.
