Umpires reportedly considering boycott of Serena Williams matches

Serena Williams argues with chair umpire Carlos Ramos during her US Open final defeat to Naomi Osaka

Serena Williams argues with chair umpire Carlos Ramos during her US Open final defeat to Naomi Osaka

The Japanese player's breakthrough triumph in NY was overshadowed by an explosive row between her opponent Serena Williams and umpire Carlos Ramos. "I spent 23 years in baseball". "That's just part of the sport". "She is doing a awful disservice to women's rights, to the #metoo movement, to gender equality", Caroline Wilson of the Australian Broadcasting Corp. said, adding, "to say she's fighting for women's rights, when what she is, is a bad sport".

"I don't think I even thought about feeling sad because there's no experience for me to draw on (from) any other Grand Slam final".

While Ramos is known as a stickler for the rules, the USA team won't have to worry about coaching violations since captains sit courtside during Davis Cup matches and are permitted to give advice throughout the match.

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

Now, Adams and Ramos have come face to face in Zadar ahead of the U.S. team's Davis Cup tie against Croatia where the veteran official will oversee some of the matches. "She was insisting that she doesn't cheat - completely believable, but besides the point - while he was making a call over which he, at that point, had little discretion".

After breaking her racket in frustration, Williams was docked a point.

Williams's sexism charge was backed initially by Katrina Adams, the chief executive for the United States Tennis Association. "But if you want to be the star of the show, that's fine", said Murray as the two spoke during a break between games.

Naomi Osaka reportedly is set to sign a big new contract with Adidas after her first major tournament win against Serena Williams. "If it's like this, let me know".

Naomi Osaka, recent victor of the 2018 US Open title, says a home video has come back to "haunt" her.

The 36-year-old, who was chasing a record-equalling 24th grand slam title, received further punishment after verbally abusing the umpire, calling him a "thief" and a "liar" in a heated exchange that went on for some time.

In Saturday's doubles, Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavic will face Bryan and Harrison.

How do we know?

"There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials", the person told the Guardian.
