"The WTA believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men vs. women and is committed to working with the sport to ensure that all players are treated the same". I really am, ' Djokovic said.
"That inspired me to start playing tennis".
Williams, of course, was docked about $24,000, after verbally abusing chair umpire Carlos Ramos, being warned for coaching and breaking a racket.
The Serb made light work of third seed Juan Martin del Potro - 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-3 on Sunday at the Flushing Meadows to win his 14th Grand Slam crown, thereby moving alongside Sampras into joint-third on the all-time list of men with most major titles.
Sampras beat Australian Roy Emerson's 33-year record of 13 Grand Slam titles by winning Wimbledon in 2000, extending it by winning the 2002 US Open - the final tournament of his career.
The powerful player couldn't hit the ball hard enough with his backhand to threaten top players, let alone the rulers of the sport like Federer, Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic continued a remarkable summer after missing the end of last season with a right elbow injury. Perhaps only Stefanos Tsitsipas can be disappointed, losing to fellow rising star Daniil Medvedev, having arrived on the back of a Masters final in Cincinnati.

However, speaking after winning his 14 Grand Slam title, Djokovic admitted that the chair umpire changed the course of the game.
It was also the third time the 31-year-old Serb - who missed last year's tournament with an elbow injury which sent his career into a mini-crisis - completed the Wimbledon-US Open double.

And it would be the first major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) to hit the East Coast since Jeanne, which struck Florida in 2004. Most forecast models indicate the storm will make landfall along the Carolina coast with many of them taking the storm inland.
Sloane Stephens, who won last year's U.S. Open and lost in the quarterfinals last week, dropped from No. 3 to No. 9. The final score was 7-6, 6-2.
No controversy here: Novak Djokovic is the U.S. Open men's singles champion.

He had grown frustrated by the pro-del Potro crowd that sang and chanted his name throughout the three-hour, 16-minute match as if it were a soccer game. Williams has won further 73 career titles so far in her career that has spanned over two decades.
"I think most of all, the respect they had for other player, they never went over the line and that's something truly wonderful tonight", Djokovic said at the presentation ceremony.
