Carlos Ramos, umpire involved in US Open final controversy, returns to court

Umpires Reportedly Considering Boycott Of Future Serena Williams Matches Carlos Ramos, umpire involved in US Open final controversy, returns to court

Williams lost her cool with the official in the final after being penalised for receiving coaching and smashing her racquet, calling Carlos Ramos a "thief", an outburst that cost her a game penalty. When she smashed her racket, Ramos docked her a point. (Makes you wonder; why do you need a coach if you can't get coached on the court?).

Carlos Ramos returned to the umpire's chair for the first time since being called a "thief" by Serena Williams, overseeing a Davis Cup match on Friday.

"I know Carlos, and I know he's not looking to put himself in a hard position".

"I think for this year my immediate goal would be to get to Singapore", said Osaka after putting herself firmly in contention to reach the season-ending WTA Finals. I have never cheated in my life!

US Open Umpire Makes First Public Statement
Williams smashed her racquet, breaking it, bringing about her second violation for racquet abuse, resulting in a point penalty. Umpire Carlos Ramos believed Williams's coach Patrick Mouratoglou, watching from the stands, was giving her hand signals.

"Of course I'm very excited the Olympics are going to be held in Tokyo", added Osaka, who is of Haitian-Japanese descent and was raised in the United States. The USTA's party line has been that punishing Williams was exclusively his decision to make, and those decisions can not be overruled. (I don't have an anger issue - I just sometimes believe in vigilante justice).

The USTA praised Williams for her conduct after the match, whereas WTA CEO Steve Simon said that "there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men vs. women". It made me feel like it was a sexist remark. "And that work ethic is the same whether you are a man or a woman". For me, it blows my mind. If a woman demonstrates clear passion while making a point, she is "emotional" and if she speaks her mind, she is "ranting".

"For me, I don't feel sad because I wouldn't even know what I'm expected to feel", she told a news conference in Yokohama ahead of the Pan Pacific tournament that begins on Monday. If a woman tries to package herself as a driven and focused, the first question you ask her is "Who will marry you?". "There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things, and because they are men, that doesn't happen to them", Williams said to the umpire, Fox News reported.

Williams, like Arthur Ashe and other Black tennis players before her, has endured an uphill battle by virtue of simply playing a sport which was segregated for centuries reserved only to white noblemen.
