US Davis Cup players try to stay out of Williams controversy

039;Disturbed' umpires consider boycotting games forming union over Serena ‘sexism’ spat – report

Strycova said she didn't understand why the WTA Tour and US Tennis Association released statements supporting Williams.

The USTA praised Williams for her conduct after the match, whereas WTA CEO Steve Simon said that "there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men vs. women". He did what he had to do in that match because she overstepped the limit. "It's because I am a woman, and that's not right".

But because a woman had the nerve, key word here being the nerve, to stand up to him, Ramos had to make her pay, and dearly did she pay, for it cost her what would have been her 24th grand slam title. If it was wrong, it should prompt a discussion about what needs to be changed in either the rules or the interpretation of the rules to reduce officiating errors.

"I know Carlos, and I know he's not looking to put himself in a hard position". Williams received one of her violations for smashing her racket, but over the past two decades, men have received 86 percent of the racket abuse code violations.

Ramos is back in the umpire's chair this weekend when Croatia host the United States in a Davis Cup tie in Zadar and U.S. captain Jim Courier said of the Williams incident: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicized". She was called on three violations over the course of the match.

'I was really happy she said that'.

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

Williams called Ramos a "thief' and a "liar" for charging her with a point penalty, and also slammed her racket to the court, breaking it during the match".

While Williams was fined $17,000, she had some very vocal support from the governing body. "There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things, and because they are men, that doesn't happen to them", Williams said to the umpire, Fox News reported.

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. She and her sister, Venus were called “The Williams Brothers” due to their male-like physiques and prowess on the court.

"I want to do well at the Pan Pacific Open and maybe year-end top five - but I'm not putting pressure on myself".
