Tennis Umpires Mulling Boycott Of Serena Williams Matches

Tennis Umpires Mulling Boycott Of Serena Williams Matches

The cartoon created a stir on social media many users have demanded Amul to take it down because they were disappointed that Serena Williams altercation with the on-court umpire has gained more limelight, than Naomi Osaka's win.

His appearance could prove awkward after several figures from the US Tennis Association, including president Katrina Adams, publicly supported Williams in her sexism allegations. Williams was later given a violation for smashing her racket, costing her a point.

"There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials", an anonymous senior umpire told the Guardian.

"We watch the guys do this all the time, they're badgering the umpire on the changeovers".

Former umpire Richard Ings also backed Ramos for his handling of the stunning incident.

Many tennis fans and players are still debating whether sexism played a role in the penalty given to Serena Williams in her confrontation with an umpire during the U.S. Open final. "One suggestion being floated is to refuse any match assignments involving Williams until she apologises for vilifying Ramos and calling him a "liar" and a "thief"".

Was Obama worse to the press than Trump?
Hassett said he suspected someone "added a 0" to the fact as it was "conveyed" to the president. "What magic wand do you have?" he asked.

Ramos is regarded as a "gold badge" umpire, among the best in the business, and it was no surprise that his employers, the International Tennis Federation, said in a statement that the code violations issued to Williams were "in accordance with the relevant rules".

Williams was fined $17,000 for her series of outbursts, which began when she was handed a code violation for receiving coaching during the second set.

"The point is he [Ramos] aggravated the situation, instead of saying "I'm not attacking your character", which is the most important thing he could have said".

The New York Times reports that Ramos has been the chair umpire in all four men's singles Grand Slam finals, as well as the men's Olympic final in 2012 in London. That triggered a third violation, which resulted in a game penalty that gave Osaka a 5-3 lead.

The American later said it was "sexist" to have been penalised a game. "It's a delicate situation, but umpiring "a la carte" doesn't exist".

Ramos, who told the newspaper that he had avoided walking the streets of NY on Sunday to avoid any "complicated situations", confirmed that he would be back in the chair on Friday after the ITF appointed him to officiate the semi-final of the Davis Cup, the worldwide men's team event, between Croatia and the United States. "Don't worry about me", Ramos said while speaking to Portuguese newspaper Tribuna Expresso, according to The Associated Press.
