US Open says umpire’s calls final on Williams

NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. Open says the decision by the chair umpire to hit Serena Williams with code violations is final and the actions were not reviewable.

Williams received a warning from umpire Carlos Ramos for receiving coaching; was assessed a second code violation for racket abuse, which required a point penalty; and got hit with a third code violation for verbal abuse in the judgment of the umpire, which then required a game penalty.
