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

According to The Times, Tennis umpires are considering refusing to preside over matches involving Serena Williams following the treatment of Carlos Ramos during the Women's US Open final.

This is a bulls***, for umpires being women or men doesn't matter. Additionally, the endorsement will make the 20-year-old the second-highest paid female athlete in 2018, behind Serena Williams. "In comparison, I never saw [Rafael] Nadal shouting like that with an umpire".

In The Times report, one anonymous official told the outlet about umpires building solidarity with each other against Williams, as they believe the United States Tennis Association sold out Ramos by not defending him against Williams' claims of sexism and insults during the match.

The shy Osaka tweeted about the video on Thursday: "I always knew this would come back to haunt me".

It is well known that Williams is one of Osaka's idols but she's now opened up on how she narrowly avoided bumping into another of her heroes at the US Open.

She also called Ramos a "thief" for taking a point from her. 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. "And that work ethic is the same whether you are a man or a woman". This is not fair.

Ramos belatedly received public backing from the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and took his place in the chair for Cilic's routine 6-1 6-3 7-6 (7-5) win over Tiafoe. "I think a lot of it maybe got over-amplified because it was the finals of the US Open". In fact, this is the sort of behavior that no one should be engaging in on the court ...
