Serena Williams' US Open meltdown was 'bulls--t': rival

Umpires Reportedly Considering Boycott Of Future Serena Williams Matches

Umpires Reportedly Considering Boycott Of Future Serena Williams Matches

Despite being in tears on Saturday while receiving the trophy inside the Arthur Ashe Stadium in NY - after Williams' outburst at umpire Carlos Ramos, calling him a "liar" and a "thief" - Osaka said she holds no ill-feelings about what happened. "He did change the course of the match".

These standards are not applied to the young men my age who instead of being emotional, they are branded "passionate", instead of ranting are "speaking their minds" and if he speaks arrogantly speaks of his achievements he is said to be "confident" and an "ambitious" is not used as a complement.

Writing in The New York Times, Navratilova - the American 18-time grand slam victor - felt that Williams had some point in her argument with the officials, but that her behaviour was inexcusable, and something which was a bad look for those watching on. For me, it blows my mind, but I'm going to continue to fight for women.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion said Ramos' decision to dock her was sexist, noting that male players who lose their tempers on court are not always penalized as harshly.

Strycova was also surprised that the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) later came out in support of Williams.

Women's governing body the WTA supported Williams and chief executive Steve Simon said the umpire showed her a different level of tolerance over her outbursts than if she had been a man.

On the other side of the net, though, the 20-year-old Osaka kept her cool in her first Grand Slam final to win 6-2 6-4.

Osaka edged Coupe Rogers champion Simona Halep, US Open finalist Williams, and Western & Southern Open champion Kiki Bertens to top this month's ballot.

"I'm just focusing on this tie and working again".

I know nothing worth mentioning here about tennis. Williams told Ramos. "You owe me an apology".

He has stated that umpires have openly discussed boycotting future Serena matches if she continues to refuse to apologise for her antics.

She also called Ramos a "thief" for taking a point from her. Men are responsible for more than 86 per cent of these code violations, as well as just under 80 per cent of verbal-abuse violations. Navratilova said, "It wasn't the right time to bring it up", and that she would have expected to face similar penalties for acting as Williams did. In fact, this is the sort of behaviour that nobody should be engaging in on the court.
