Amul’s ‘Unserene’ Cartoon On Serena Williams-US Open Controversy Slammed By Netizens

Serena Williams had a heated exchange with chair umpire Carlos Ramos during the U.S. Open women's final Serena Williams had a heated exchange with chair umpire Carlos Ramos during the U.S. Open women's final

Ings said that while refs are upset and legitimately concerned about favoritism toward Williams and against them, an actual boycott isn't likely because of the lack of an umpire union and the relatively small number of top-level officials, of which Ramos is considered one.

The potential stance comes after the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) supported the athlete following her claims of sexism against chair umpire Carlos Ramos in the final.

Ramos is deemed one of the more experienced umpires in the game with nearly 30 years of experience but for overseeing the Grand Slam final he received a fee of just £370 - a standard daily rate. It confirmed that, under the Grand Slam rule book, all three violations he issued against Williams - following the three-step penalty process of warning-point-game - were correct. "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"".

In the second set of Williams' match against Naomi Osaka, Ramos warned Williams for receiving coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches. Williams was docked a game Saturday and went on to lose the championship to Japan's Naomi Osaka.

"It's tough, but with experience you understand how you can control your emotions and how you can stay focused on what the task at hand is and that's just winning basketball games and not letting anything get in the way of that", he told Omnisport.

According to McEnroe, Ramos should not have given Williams a violation for breaking her racquet and should have warned her early on about what would happen if she did not move on. At the 2016 French Open, Ramos issued a coaching violation against her, and she disputed it on court: "I'm 36 years old. I guess when we look up to our heroes, we expect the very best from them at all times but she is human", Keothavong told Sky Sports' Sportswomen.

"I felt like he blew it", said King. Williams took offense to the referee's accusation that she would cheat.

His appearance could prove awkward after several figures from the US Tennis Association, including president Katrina Adams, publicly supported Williams in her sexism allegations.

"Carlos Ramos is one of the most experienced and respected umpires in tennis", the ITF statement said. "It's a delicate situation, but umpiring "a la carte" doesn't exist. Do not worry about me!"

Ramos has since spoken out about the backlash via Portugal's Tribuna Expresso.
