Umpires reportedly considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches

Umpires reportedly considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches

Many officials were also left angry with the fact that the International Tennis Federation (ITF) took almost 48 hours to defend Ramos, on Monday (Sept 10) afternoon, by which time the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) had supported Williams' claims of sexism after she was given a game penalty for her behaviour during her defeat by Naomi Osaka.

Williams, though, erupted in anger and smashed her racket, leading to a code violation. "I know Serena coaches herself".

'I was sad for Serena because she's a great champion. They're thinking, "What if?'"

"She is passionate about what she does out there".

"The character was the biggest issue here".

Other things the two talked about were Osaka's favorite color (black), her favorite TV show (The Office), favorite singer (Beyoncé) and celebrity crush (Michael B. Jordan, obviously).

Williams clashed with Ramos over penalties she thought she did not deserve and ultimately lost to Naomi Osaka, a 20-year-old player born in Japan. "The incidents on the court are not the issue", he added.

"When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it. I think that's probably the context of the conversation".

Yzerman Reportedly "Going Home To Detroit" After Stepping Down As Lightning GM
Yzerman spent his entire Hall of Fame playing career with the Red Wings and now owns homes in both Tampa and Detroit . But the move has already stoked speculation that Yzerman will eventually become the Red Wings' next general manager.

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) and Women's Tennis Association (WTA), however, supported Williams' accusations that Ramos' actions were based in sexism.

"Three days before I had drawn a cartoon about Nick Kyrgios being led off by the ears, like you used to do with your children", he said. It exists, let's not beat around the bush about it. But, in this case, particularly through the WTA, this has not happened.

Other umpires are reportedly not so cool with the outrageous smearing of Ramos. "It has sparked an interesting debate". You stole a point from me.

"No one was saying she was a good sport, if they are they're insane", added King.

"She worked so hard for it her whole life. She was definitely playing better than Serena from the get-go, so this is hers and hers 100% no matter what was happening with the chaos".

Keothavong believes the way tennis players have reacted to the match has been "really noticeable".

Roger Federer was fined just $1,500 for a berating an umpire with an expletive during the 2009 U.S. Open, and Adams pointed out that the amount of fines is at the discretion of the administrator of the four Grand Slam events, not the USTA.

"There has been a lot of support there but it has been interesting on social media anyway that not many players have spoken in support of Serena".
