Umpire Breaks His Silence Amid Serena Williams' Sexism Accusations Over Controversial Calls

Tennis Umpires Are Reportedly Considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches After US Open Incident

It was business as usual until the second set when, per CBS Sports, "Williams was given a warning from Ramos after the umpire determined her coach was attempting to instruct her using hand signals, which results in code violation".

There could be more fallout on the way following Serena Williams' clash with a chair umpire in Saturday's U.S. Open women's final.

At this point, the score was 3-5 and Williams could not recover, and Osaka won the game. "So, I was really happy that she said that".

It defended Ramos in a statement on Monday: "Carlos Ramos is one of the most experienced and respected umpires in tennis". The 23-time Grand Slam victor was later fined $17,000 for her behavior. Their match on Saturday was characterised by chaos, though, and some in the crowd in NY booed during the trophy ceremony. Williams was not playing a Russian blonde a la Maria Sharapova but a person of colour in the Haitian-Japanese Osaka.

Later this week, it was no longer only Williams and Ramos being criticized for their conduct, but also an Australian cartoonist for his depiction of the incident.

"I know the way that I was brought up, people tell me I act kind of Japanese so I guess there is that". Williams, on her part, comforted and consoled Osaka, and asked the crowd to give due credit to the youngster.

Although the International Tennis Federation (ITF) had come to Ramos' defense, saying that his "decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules", the umpires are according to The Times considering to boycott future Serena Williams matches.

The rulings by Ramos and outcome of the match stirred controversy, with some backing Williams, believing she'd been unfairly ruled against, and others believing her behavior justified the violations.

Ramos, who is from Portugal, spoke briefly to Portuguese newspaper Tribuna Expresso this week.

When Williams got in Ramos' face and told him, "You will never, ever, ever be on another court of mine as long as you live", it is the greatest tennis player ever borderline-bullying an expendable official.

Ramos has said that he is "fine, given the circumstances" days after the match, however. "It's a delicate situation, but a la carte arbitration does not exist". "Don't you worry about me!"

Ramos' umpiring career will continue as he is expected to officiate the Davis Cup semifinal matches starting September 14.
