Osaka not saddened by Serena row in US Open final

It's not just Serena: how umpire Carlos Ramos has clashed with players A Battle in Queens Turns Ugly and a Beautiful Message is Lost
Shannon Reynolds | 16 September, 2018, 19:27

While it may have been a surprise, it certainly, however, was neither shocking nor stunning, based on both players' performance leading up to the final.

Others chose to point out that Williams' actions had taken away the spotlight from the 20-year-old first time victor Osaka, who became the first Japanese to win a grand slam title. Pete Sampras bored me but I marvelled at his tennis.

Clay Travis heavily refutes Serena's claims and called out the media for openly accepting and promoting extremely delicate and inflammable accusations that immorally stir up the worst parts of our society, especially when baseless in nature.

The real reasons, however, are many. A true champion at her best. She's come back repeatedly from injuries, and most recently a traumatic experience giving birth to her daughter.

In a match that drew strong ratings on ESPN, Osaka beat Williams in straight sets to win the women's singles Open title.

Born to a Haitian father, Leonard "San" François, and a Japanese mother, Tamaki Osaka in October, 1997, Naomi and her older sister, Mari were given their mother's maiden name for practical reasons when the family lived in Japan.

However, no one should be beyond reproach, and Williams's actions this past weekend fell short of the expectations we should have of leaders.

Reports coming from London said that professional tennis umpires have threatened to boycott officiating Serena Williams' future matches after she accused sitting official of "stealing" her points in the US Open.

The storm will dump rain in the Carolinas through the weekend. "I can not overstate it: flood waters are rising". The gray ash left behind when coal is burned contains toxic heavy metals, including arsenic, lead and mercury.

Swinging the racquet as thousands of voices screamed for a Serena victory, she surged to a 6-2 6-4 victory.

Asked how she felt about being a role model for young children, Osaka gave mixed signals. Later, in the post-match conference, Williams said that there was a double standard in handing punishment to players. "I've seen a
lot of people get called for coaching before, and you might have a grumble and stuff, but you get on with it".

But instead of talking about any of that, we are talking about point and game deductions.

Ramos called three rules violations against Williams during the event.

Serena may have been angry, and maybe she had a reason for her outburst. As tennis great Martina Navratilova points out, no one should act this way on court, particularly a champion.

Williams accused Ramos of sexism during the US Open final in NY, branding him a "thief" and a "liar" after he issued her with a series of code violations. "I'm not going to really think too far ahead", Osaka said.

"If you're an idiot reporter in the USA news and you're an apologist for Serena's behaviour it's (her reputation) enhanced, but for the rest of the reasonable population it's definitely damaged", Freedman said.
