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

039;Disturbed' umpires consider boycotting games forming union over Serena ‘sexism’ spat – report

Czech tennis player Barbora Strycova has slammed Serena Williams' attitude and declared the superstar's claims of sexism as "bulls.".

The apparent plot to refuse the chair when Williams competes is seemingly a direct response to the treatment Carlos Ramos received for slapping Williams with three code violations during the American's 2-6, 4-6 US Open final loss to Naomi Osaka on September 8.

After the match, Williams accused Ramos of having a double standard for women and men. Williams added, "So congratulations, Naomi".

"This is a bulls".

"I don't understand from where he's coming with that statement", said Djokovic, suggesting this was the first he has heard of umpires failing to treat men and women equally. "I just never knew when". After sparring with the chair umpire, Williams was given a one-game penalty late in the climactic second set, sealing the win for Osaka. "The way Serena handled the situation, I think she handled it with such grace and class".

"WTA defence surpised me".

But lately - as shown by a recent spate of worldwide sporting squabbles, from Nike's Colin Kaepernick ad to the Serena Williams saga - this ideal of apolitical sport has slowly revealed itself to be a luxury of a select few, a privilege only afforded to those who have benefited from the rules set by society - and sport's - increasingly outdated institutions.

Barbora Strycova and Serena Williams after their fourth round match at the 2017 Australian Open.

Another person identified as an "senior figure" told the Guardian that umpires felt Ramos was "hung out to dry" after the incident and that "no one is standing up for officials" amid reports that the incident is fueling talks of a boycott. He did what he had to do in that match, because she overcame the limit.

'I've said far worse', McEnroe admitted.

Strycova also claims that Williams, along with sister Venus, always gets on-court coaching. Umpires are discussing whether they could take action to stand up for their profession. "It's odd because that's an individual sport, but I got used to it".

The 23-time Grand Slam champion had another running battle last Saturday with umpire Carlos Ramos, calling him a "liar" and a "thief" after he issued her a code violation for receiving coaching from Patrick Mouratoglou, which she vehemently denied.
