Carlos Ramos to umpire US-Croatia in Davis Cup

U.S. Open tennis champion Naomi Osaka reacts as she hits a ball to Nissan Motor's Senior Vice President Asako Hoshino after a contract signing ceremony at Nissan's global headquarters in Yokohama

The game's top umpires are considering forming a union because they believe Carlos Ramos was "hung out to dry" by the authorities during and after the US Open women's final despite upholding the rules in sanctioning Serena Williams.

But Williams isn't the first player to take issue with Ramos's strict interpretation of the rules.

Do any statistics back up these accusations of sexism in tennis?

Ramos has said that he is "fine, given the circumstances" days after the match, however. "But if you want to be the star of the show, that's fine".

Beyond formal rule changes, it appears nearly certain that, in future, umpires will take extra care to be consistent in their approach towards male and female players. "She is going for her first Grand Slam title, grew up in NY, that was her moment", she added.

In very bad scenes after Osaka's historic grand slam triumph, the 20-year-old burst into tears as fans voiced their displeasure at the way Serena had lost.

"We have to have consistency, because when you look at what the women, in this case Serena, is feeling, we watch the guys do this all the time", Adams said. He did change the course of the match. Novak Djokovic clinched his third US Open title with a 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 triumph over Juan Martin del Potro, taking him level with Pete Sampras's mark of 14 Grand Slams.

Bolton Says International Court 'Dead to Us'
During a speech in Washington, Bolton blamed the Palestinian Authority for failing to take "meaningful steps" to advance peace. The mission closure is only the latest in a series of moves chipping away at traditional American support to the Palestinians.

What was supposed to be a fairy-tale matchup for Japan's Naomi Osaka and the player she idolizes spun out of control Saturday after Williams was handed code violations that she described as unfair.

"Rather, I think the question we have to ask ourselves is this: What is the right way to behave to honor our sport and to respect our opponents?" There's certain ones that need to be checked.

I don't follow the sport closely enough to know for certain but all of this sounds suspiciously like the umpires are seizing on the opportunity presented by the Williams incident as leverage for ... something. "I think that's probably the context of the conversation".

"But in her protests... she also got part of it wrong".

The number-one-world ranked athlete threw a veritable temper tantrum on the court Saturday, which began when she incurred a penalty and escalated as she was penalized further by umpire Carlos Ramos for her behaviour.

Ramos, who told the newspaper that he had avoided walking the streets of NY on Sunday to avoid any "complicated situations", confirmed he would be back in the chair on Friday in Zadar, Croatia. She did not see an umpire on a chair, but a misogynist on a high horse; and she did not see another female professional, but another rival to be crushed by brutal gamesmanship and intimidation; and she saw victimization in every crevasse of her own putrid performance in front of the watching world.
