The tennis superstar captioned the pic:

“Staying at the @newyorkpalace has been so relaxing. When @olympiaohanian and I were watching jw videos after a long day #thismama passed out. Olympia was clearly not happy but I could not have been more comfortable anywhere else. Thanks so much @newyorkpalace for having me. It’s always a pleasure.”

Fans took to her comment section to share their thoughts on the adorable snap. One user wrote “Awww watching JW videos. Awesome,” another added, “That's the let me nod out while they watch TV on my lap...but if they move I'll know...move!” and a third one said “Oh she is so beautiful. You deserve to rest and relax.”

Williams just had one of the hardest weeks of her career. Not only she lost her 24th Grand Slam title against Naomi Osaka, but she was also accused of cheating and penalized $17,000 for three violations at the controversial final game of the U.S Open.

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE GAME?

The 36-year-old got involved in an argument with the umpire Carlos Ramos after he penalized her a point for allegedly getting coaching from the sidelines, but she denied it. Later, after she lost a point, Serena smashed her racket on the floor in frustration, which earned her another violation point.

That’s when she charged once again against Ramos, demanding an apology and calling him a “thief” for stealing one point from her. The result of her outburst was the penalization of an entire game.

She ended up losing 6-2, 6-4 against 20-year-old Naomi Osaka, who couldn’t contain her tears when the crowd showed their disappointment about Serena’s loss.

On her appearance post-match at the Today show, Osaka said of Serena’s outburst:

“I didn't really know what was going on because I went to the back and had my back turned. Then before I knew it, he was saying there was a game penalty. I was a little confused by the whole thing.”

And added:

“I'm not really that 100 percent sure because I kind of haven't really had time to look too much at the news. I've been going all over the place. I can't really form an opinion. I want to watch everything and I want to know what happened. This is sort of the biggest thing that's ever happened to me.”

Osaka confessed that she felt emotional because she believed the crowd was booing her and not the umpire, however, it was Serena who calmed her down as she whispered to her that she was not the target of the angry audience.

“I could sympathize. I have been a fan of Serena my whole life. I knew how badly the crowd wanted her to win,” she concluded.

WHAT DID THE UMPIRE IN QUESTION SAID?

After receiving loads of hate from Serena’s fans and women from all over the world for his alleged “sexist” decisions, Carlos Ramos has kept a low profile, but he recently broke the silence while speaking to a local newspaper from his country, Portugal.

The man told the Tribuna Expresso that he’s doing okay, giving the circumstances. Chair umpires are not allowed to talk about a match outside of the court, which explains his lack of declarations.

Ramos said he has been getting support messages from family, friends and tennis players telling him he did the right thing. The newspaper also stated Ramos stands by his performance at the match. He said:

“It's a delicate situation. But umpiring a la carte is something that does not exist. Don't worry about me; I'll be fine.”
