Naomi Osaka reveals conversation with Serena Williams after US Open final

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

He has vast experience and has umpired a final at all four grand slams, as well as the 2012 Olympic men's final, in which Andy Murray beat Roger Federer.

But as per a data analysis compiled by the Times, the male players were slapped with 1,1517 fines as compared to 535 fines for female players in the Grand Slam tournaments for the period between 1998 to 2018.

She also called Ramos a "thief" for taking a point from her.

Much has been written about her loss to Japan's Naomi Osaka.

Women's governing body the WTA supported Williams and chief executive Steve Simon said the umpire showed her a different level of tolerance over her outbursts than if she had been a man.

Anyone with information that could assist the police investigation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 . The couple called police after seeing a breaking news alert yesterday warning of incidents across the country.


"I don't cheat", Williams told the umpire chair, Carlos Ramos, as he gave her the first violation when she received coaching during the match. The breakdown of her penalties was $10,000 for "verbal abuse" (calling Ramos a "thief"), $4,000 for coaching and $3,000 for breaking her racket.

Ramos is back in the umpire's chair this weekend when Croatia host the United States in a Davis Cup tie in Zadar and U.S. captain Jim Courier said of the Williams incident: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicized". There are more eyeballs and ears around what we want to say.

"I just thought I shouldn't have any regrets". They're sitting up there in the stands saying, 'Go this way.

When it comes to the media itself, we've seen plenty of coverage of the fact that women presenters are paid less than men, and that applies in many walks of life.

'Coaching is common, a lot of people are doing it, some people aren't getting called for it.

"Maybe men should just referee men's matches because they know how men think". That would tend to create a double standard disfavoring women when penalties are called, or at least the impression of such a double standard.

A warning is no big deal, but things got worse when Williams later smashed her tennis racket on the court in frustration after losing a game-an automatic code violation.

"But the way she handled it post-match with how eloquently she put her sentiments around gender equality in her sport and created the conversation we can all assess for ourselves". Williams yelled at Ramos.

However, the data alone doesn't negate Williams' broader challenge either, even if it does make it more hard to establish. But we can not measure ourselves by what we think we should also be able to get away with.

Does the umpires threat to boycott Williams' future games tantamount to saying that although most, if not all professional tennis players have had similar outbursts on the court, it's this particular outbursts of the greatest tennis player of all time-a black woman-that are so damaging to their profession? Play by the rules and stop whining, and this issue won't matter much at all.
