Serena Williams has disputed Patrick Mouratoglou's admission that he illegally tried to coach her during the US Open final

In the final, Williams was given a code violation for coaching, incurred a point penalty for racquet smashing and was docked a game for verbal abuse.

Meanwhile, Serena has told Channel 10 she is trying to "move on" but remains perplexed at her coach's admission he illegally signalled to her.

The coaching violation which was the first of three violations the American received in the final steered controversial reactions across the tennis world; Patrick Mouratoglou, Serena's coach graciously admitted to coaching her.

"Even a man, if you want to express yourself in a way where you're not using profanities, or you're just being yourself, and you're at this moment that you've worked for since you were three-years-old, and you're in the cusp of this fantastic moment", she said. "It was just a really confusing moment for him and I was like, 'It's OK, but don't..." We've never had signals.

Williams has been vocal about how life-changing and important motherhood has been for her.

Williams did not answer a question about whether she regretted the decision to break her racket on the court, with footage showing her publicist stepping in during the interview.

"Because I asked him, I was like, 'what are you talking about?" That doesn't make sense.

"I just don't understand what he was talking about", Williams said. "Why would you say that?" But we have no doubt that Carlos was just enforcing the rules as he sees them.' Courier added: 'Look, I don't want this to come out the wrong way, but he enforced rules that have been enforced on me over the years.

Williams said she felt "on the cusp of this incredible moment" before the 6-2, 6-4 loss to Osaka.

"Even a man, if you want to express yourself in a way where you're not using profanity or you're just being yourself and you're at this moment where you've worked for since you're three years old and you're on the cusp of this incredible moment".

"If you're a female, you should be able to do, even half of what a guy can do, and I feel that right now, as it's proven, we are not in that same position", she said.

"But you know, that's neither here or there".

"What I'm trying to do most of all is to just recover from that".
