Naomi Osaka Tells Ellen DeGeneres What Serena Williams Whispered To Her

Australian newspaper insists controversial Serena Williams cartoon is not racist

Australian newspaper insists controversial Serena Williams cartoon is not racist

Serena Williams smashes her racket during the women's final against Naomi Osaka during the 2018 US Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York September 8, 2018.

The International Tennis Federation did wholeheartedly back Ramos, saying in its statement that "Carlos Ramos is one of the most experienced and respected umpires in tennis".

The U.S. team includes Jack Sock, Sam Querrey, Steve Johnson, Mike Bryan and rookie Frances Tiafoe.

U.S. Open victor Naomi Osaka is reportedly set to sign the biggest deal Adidas has ever made with a female athlete, after the tennis star defeated 23-time Grand Slam singles victor Serena Williams in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4.

That match descended into chaos - with thousands of spectators booing and both players crying during the trophy ceremony - after Williams confronted Ramos about his rulings.

Ramos, however, could have prevented the affair had he communicated better and given Williams a "soft warning" instead of a code violation when he saw her coach Patrick Mouratoglou giving signals during the match, King said.

While Ramos has said he is "fine, given the circumstances", there have been rumblings that officials were considering boycotting future matches involving Williams. According to another report in The Guardian, umpires are also considering forming a union after Ramos was "hung out to dry" by the authorities despite upholding the rules.

Karanvir Bohra says he refused to be a part of Bigg Boss 12 as he can not live without his daughters - Vienna and Bella. Bigg Boss , be it Tamil or Hindi has a way of surprising viewers unexpected. "I can not leave them", Karanvir said.

In a statement, the National Association of Black Journalists said it was "repugnant on many levels" and that "Williams' depiction is unnecessarily sambo-like", referring to historically racist depictions of black people in a children's book series.

Chair umpire, Carlos Ramos, gave Williams three penalties for rule violations during the match.

Nonetheless, Ramos faced a lot of flak from top players, including US Open men's singles champion Novak Djokovic, who insisted that the chair umpire's decisions changed the course of the match.

Katrina Adams, the head of United States Tennis Association (USTA) which organizes the U.S. Open also supported Williams.

Ramos did not penalize the men for what they said. "I think that's probably the context of the conversation".

"Umpires are just upset", Ings said.

In response to swelling criticisms of Ramos' officiating, some umpires, though technically not allowed to talk with the press, are speaking out on behalf of the fraternity of tennis referees. "I have since texted her coach to make sure she understands that she is celebrated and how proud I am of her".
