Jamie Murray: Serena US Open sexism claims far-fetched

Tennis umpires considering boycotting Serena Williams matches: report | TheHill

Tennis umpires considering boycotting Serena Williams matches: report | TheHill

The chair umpire, Mr Carlos Ramos, accused Serena of receiving coaching from her coach which is considered illegal in tennis tournaments. The data would tend to suggest not, but that's only if you believe that men and women behave the same on court.

A report by The Times of London published on Tuesday cited an anonymous official saying that tennis umpires are considering refusing to officiate matches involving Williams.

She also said the controversy hasn't altered her feelings about winning a slam because she had no idea how she was supposed to react, going on to describe Serena as her idol and inspiration. "I have seen other men call other umpires several things".

It defended Ramos in a statement on Monday: "Carlos Ramos is one of the most experienced and respected umpires in tennis". She has slowed down, she is probably not so "hungry" anymore, and she has been losing more matches, including a recent 6-0, 6-1 defeat to Johanna Konta in California.

Osaka revealed her music ritual is to only listen to one artist until she loses, then she switches up the music. Nissan will also support Osaka by providing Nissan vehicles at her tour destinations.

"I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff". The WTA defense surprised me.

"Because it was my first final and my first Grand Slam victory, overall I felt really happy and I know that I accomplished a lot".

Naomi Osaka has been thrust into the media spotlight having beaten Serena Williams at the 2018 US Open, becoming the first Japanese tennis player to ever win a Grand Slam title in tennis.

Williams later broke her racket and shouted at Ramos, which led to a penalty point and a game penalty.

Ramos gave Williams three code violations in her straight-set loss to Naomi Osaka last weekend, and the American great argued she wasn't being treated the same as some male players. This is not fair.

However, Murray said he disagreed that umpires were more lenient towards men than women.

Although the International Tennis Federation (ITF) had come to Ramos' defense, saying that his decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules.

"We can not measure ourselves by what we think we should also be able to get away with", Navratilova wrote.

When one remembers, among other things, Serena's outbursts in 2009 against Kim Clijsters, and in 2011 in the final against Samantha Stosur when she was losing, however, it appeared that her behaviour stems from a belief that she has a right to win, and that she can not - or should not - lose.

"I think the umpire did what was within his rights", he told BBC Sport ahead of Britain's Davis Cup tie with Uzbekistan in Glasgow.
