New Stats Support Umpire Carlos Ramos In Dispute With Serena Williams

Tennis umpires considering boycotting Serena Williams matches report

At the 2016 Olympics, he issued Andy Murray with a code violation when he thought the reigning champion had called him "stupid".

'Coaching is common, a lot of people are doing it, some people aren't getting called for it. "For me, it's just who I am", she said, per Reuters.

"You can't make those points in a backroom meeting because no-one's going to listen to her". He did what he had to do in that match, because she overstepped the limit.

Ramos is back in the umpire's chair this weekend when Croatia host the United States in a Davis Cup tie in Zadar and USA captain Jim Courier said of the Williams incident: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicized. Maybe it's coincidence", Williams said.

Britain's Jamie Murray has rejected claims of men being treated more leniently than women by umpires. "I can't remember a great player that gets less dispensation than Serena", he says.

"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 Thursday, speaking mostly in English at the auto company's headquarters in Yokohama, according to Reuters. "Overall I felt really happy and know I accomplished a lot".

Martina Navratilova said Williams should have showed more respect for the game they both love.

What's wonderful to me is not that Ms. Williams was angry, but that she isn't angry more often, as she has every right to be. Everyone who has experienced discrimination can empathise with her passionate plea. Her 36-year-old opponent cleared that up for her with a whisper in her ear during the trophy presentation.

In her first interview addressing the controversial U.S. Open final, Serena Williams insisted she did not receive coaching during the match despite what her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, said following her loss.

Tennis umpires are reportedly considering a boycott of matches involving Serena Williams after her outburst in the US Open final against Naomi Osaka.

But much of the ensuing outrage chose to ignore Williams' claims of unfair treatment.

"When a woman is emotional, she's hysterical" and she's penalized for it.

The 20-year-old melted hearts when she broke down sobbing after thrashing her idol 6-2, 6-4 to become Japan's first Grand Slam singles champion in NY last weekend.

My friends will tell you how we utterly hate it when a man interrupts a women making a point, only to make the same point the woman was trying to make, what is now called "mansplaining".

And so we arrive back at that platitudinous phrase: stick to sports. A pleaser. I keep thinking about what Claudia Rankine wrote about Ms. Williams in a 2015 article for The New York Times: "Once recognized, black excellence is then supposed to perform with good manners and forgiveness in the face of any racist slights or attacks".
