Serena Williams has been fined $17,000 for the code violations that included calling the umpire a "liar" and "thief" in her US Open final loss.
Williams was docked a game for verbal abuse and had a point penalty for smashing her racquet and a code violation for coaching.
She later said it was "sexist" to have been penalised a game.
Williams' fine for the code violations, imposed by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), will be deducted from the $1.85 million she won as the runner-up.
Serena Williams lost the match to Japan’s Naomi Osaka 6-2 6-4. Osaka became the first player from her country to win a Grand Slam Singles title.
