Asked to address the disparity in Williams' fines and Roger Federer's $1,500 fine for an expletive-laden outburst during the 2009 U.S. Open men's final, Adams said the fines are up to the discretion of the grand slam administrator, not the USTA.

Williams ultimately lost the match to Naomi Osaka with a score of 6-2, 6-4.

Jamie Murray does not believe Carlos Ramos treated Serena Williams any differently because of her gender. Williams was later given a violation for smashing her racket, costing her a point.
