Umpires Reportedly Considering Boycott Of Future Serena Williams Matches

Are there different standards for men and women in tennis? The USTA head says

One suggestion being floated is to refuse any match assignments involving Williams until she apologizes for vilifying Ramos.

Naomi Osaka, the young tennis star whose mortification across the net from her idol, Serena Williams, added to a memorable TV spectacle at the U.S. Open Saturday night, has rebounded to score a major endorsement deal.

Ramos slapped Williams with several penalties with accompanying fines totaling $17,000 after she asserted herself and challenged the umpire for saying she was being coached during the game.

According to McEnroe, Ramos should not have given Williams a violation for breaking her racquet and should have warned her early on about what would happen if she did not move on.

Osaka said during the interview that she initially didn't know what was going on because she turned away from the scene as Williams approached Ramos and started yelling. To get called in a Grand Slam final was perhaps a bit tight, but I think the reaction was pretty overboard.

The International Tennis Federation, meanwhile, defended 47-year-old Ramos and said he acted "at all times with professionalism and integrity".

While her U.S. Open victory was marred by the controversy that led to a tearful and boo-filled trophy ceremony, the incident might end up being a plus for Osaka.

Freeland said she would meet with Lighthizer when negotiators found issues that needed to be elevated to the ministerial level. President Donald Trump's National Economic Council, suggested Friday that Canada isn't offering enough.

Public attitudes are slowly changing as Japanese society becomes more integrated with the global economy, and the emergence of more ethnically mixed celebrities, especially in sport, is helping.

Osaka also said that she felt confident going into the match that she would win.

Mouratoglou admitted afterwards that he had tried to coach Williams, who said she never saw the Frenchman's gestures.

"She said that she was proud of me and that I should know that the crowd wasn't booing at me". "At the time, I did ... think that they were booing at me".

Osaka, now ranked seventh in the world, is aiming to qualify for the WTA Finals in Singapore at the end of the season. It is understandable that this high-profile and regrettable incident should provoke debate.

Afterwards, Williams suggested that Ramos and other umpires are tolerant of worse criticism from male players. "The fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions and wants to express themselves and wants to be strong woman".

"So hopefully I can be that role model".
