Umpires reportedly considering boycott of Serena Williams matches

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

"There's no equality when it comes to what the men are doing to the chair umpires and what the women are doing, and I think there has to be some consistency across the board", Adams continued.

Naomi Osaka is set to ink two huge deals less than a week after her controversial U.S. Open victory. Williams was outraged, and demanded an apology, telling Ramos that "I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose". Williams in the moment blamed sexism, sparking a debate about the way female tennis players are judged.

Adams had publicly lauded Serena Williams' behaviour after the US Open final but was strangely silent on Ramos' conduct, while she criticised his approach to ESPN.

Umpires are allegedly unhappy at how 2018 US Open women's final umpire Carlos Ramos was treated during and after the match.

Williams doubled down after the match, believing that Ramos' docking her a game for verbal abuse was tantamount to sexism.

"Growing up, my dad drove a Nissan, so being able to be a brand ambassador now, it feels like I've come full circle", she said.

"WTA defence surpised me". Her father, Leonard Francois, was inspired to get Naomi and her older sister Mari into tennis after watching the Williams sisters rise in the late 1990s. Will rules change in Serena's matches? She was called on three violations over the course of the match.

"Me, as a woman, take a lot of warnings", Strycova said.

Williams smashed her racquet, breaking it, bringing about her second violation for racquet abuse, resulting in a point penalty.

However, others supported the official, who is among the most experienced in the sport, with the International Tennis Federation ITF saying he had acted with "professionalism and integrity" in the final.

While Williams was fined $17,000, she had some very vocal support from the governing body.

However, a perusal of Knight's body of editorial cartoons shows that no one is safe from his criticism and he regularly depicts all sorts of public figures in an unflattering light, grossly exaggerating their physical features.
