Carlos Ramos says he's 'fine' after U.S. Open

Serena Williams berates umpire at US Open

Serena Williams berates umpire at US Open

How did our favourite pastime become so politicised?

While Ramos is known as a stickler for the rules, the US team won't have to worry about coaching violations since captains sit courtside during Davis Cup matches and are permitted to give advice throughout the match.

"We're here to play; Carlos is here to umpire; and we don't expect anything out of the ordinary", Courier said.

Umpire Carlos Ramos has made his first public statement since his disputed calls at the U.S. Open final Saturday.

Williams ultimately lost the match to Naomi Osaka with a score of 6-2, 6-4. "I have a daughter, and I stand for what's right for her", Williams shouted. "Coaching on every point should be allowed in tennis. I just never knew when".

"When you're little, you're taught not to look if your opponent gets angry or anything, you're told to turn around and try to focus, so I tried to do that", the 20-year-old superstar said Wednesday on "Ellen."

"He did what he had to do in that match, because she overstepped the limit".

Williams received a second penalty for throwing her racket to the ground and breaking it after losing a point. Eventually, Williams called Ramos "a thief", drawing the third violation for "verbal abuse" - and costing her a game, putting Osaka ahead 5-3.

Apple debuts biggest iPhone yet, health-oriented watch
It underlines what a powerful franchise Apple has created and that the public's love affair with the iPhone is stronger than ever. If you're using a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 or older, would you consider getting the iPhone XR? Apple has only just discontinued the 6s.

The Japanese player's breakthrough triumph in NY was overshadowed by an explosive row between her opponent Williams and umpire Carlos Ramos which resulted in the 23-times Grand Slam champion being docked a game and fined $17,000. For me, it blows my mind, but I'm going to continue to fight for women.

Williams claimed the male umpire only handed her a game penalty because he was being sexist but Strycova disagrees with those remarks. "I'm not going to say, 'Oh, I can't draw that because that's a no-go area.' What does that say about the way the world's going?"

"They are always with their gang behind, their team", Strycova said. For me, it blows my mind.

"Me, as a woman, take a lot of warnings". "She's passionate. She was speaking out".

Strycova also claimed that Williams, along with sister Venus, regularly got on-court coaching which was at the root of the violations in the US Open final.

Williams in the moment blamed sexism, sparking a debate about the way female tennis players are judged. She was called emotional, her rage labelled a meltdown, a tantrum.

The incident has gobbled headlines all week, with some, such as Billie Jean King and USTA head Katrina Adams, saying tennis has a double standard in which men are not similarly punished for outbursts and others, such as Martina Navratilova and Mary Carillo, defending tennis's rules. We shouldn't have to carry that extra weight on our back in anything that we do. "More voices are needed to do the same". "We have to treat each other fairly and the same". Sometimes, all that's left is pure human rage. She decided, vehemently, not to stick to sports.
