Umpire focused on 'working again' after Serena row

Ramos during the US Open final between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka

Tennis umpires are reportedly threatening to boycott Serena Williams' matches over the fallout from her US Open finals altercation with Carlos Ramos.

There are now discussions about boycotting Williams' matches between a group of umpires that lack a body to represent their interests. "So, I was really happy that she said that", Osaka told Ellen DeGeneres."At the time I did think they were booing at me". 'She's right about the guys being held to a different standard, there's no question.' The Australian 24-time Grand Slam victor Margaret Court said: 'We always had to go by the rules.

In addition to her extraordinary tennis skills as displayed in her dominant performance against Williams in her first Grand Slam win, the Japanese-born athlete with a Haitian father is now also being recognized for her broad global endorsement appeal. "It made me feel like it was a sexist remark", she told reporters on Saturday.

Williams received a torrent of support in her claims of sexism after a series of code violations issued by umpire Carlos Ramos sent her into an unflattering meltdown in her straights sets loss on Sunday.

"I've seen other men call other umpires several things", she said at a news conference.

At this point, the score was 3-5 and Williams could not recover, and Osaka won the game. She was disqualified from a semifinal match at the 2009 US Open for threatening a lineswoman. Appreciation for what the 20-year-old achieved in defeating Williams has since been gathering momentum, with Nissan now appointing her its brand ambassador. She angrily called Ramos a "thief", pointed out that she has never cheated, mentioned how she tries to set an example for her daughter and demanded an apology.

Tennis umpires 'thoroughly disturbed' by lack of support from WTA
The WTA validated Williams' complaint that the penalties were sexist and would not have been initiated if Williams were a man. Issues of sexism, officiating double standards and adverse playing conditions have dominated the 50th anniversary of the U.S.

As the International Tennis Federation and Ramos' fellow umpires leapt to his defence, citing the $17,000 in fines that officials levied against Williams as proof of his competency, Simon joined tennis icon Billie Jean King in applauding Williams for bringing officiating hypocrisy to light.

But Ramos has finally broken his silence regarding the backlash, speaking to Portugal's Tribuna Expresso. "It's an unhappy situation but "à la carte" refereeing doesn't exist".

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