Serena Williams fined at US Open: Is it sexism?

Naomi became the first Japanese and first Haitian to win a grand slam title. Umpire Carlos Ramos penalised Williams after seeing her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, making a hand gesture. She denied the accusation and berated Ramos, demanding an apology. You'll remember I said no to the poll tax and everything. He said he plans to meet his granddaughter when she plays next week in a tournament in Japan. Chair umpires use similar terminology among themselves, and Ramos has completed a "Golden Slam" by being in the chair for men's singles finals at all four Grand Slam tournaments and at the 2012 men's Olympic singles final between Andy Murray and Roger Federer.

So, Williams might feel aggrieved about the crucial first code violation, because she had a legitimate expectation that anything short of overt coaching would be ignored by the umpire - and even if it were not ignored, she might have expected to receive an informal warning first. The suggestion of one columnist that Ramos' position in a high chair during the match was itself a symbol of entrenched privilege overlooks the very reason for such positioning: the official is required to have a perspective on the match that the committed competitors can not.

At the 2016 French Open, Venus Williams disputed an illegal coaching call, saying: "I'm 36 years old". He took points from her for that terse remark along with points because she deliberately broke her tennis racket on the court. Williams said. "That is not right".

The American star was fined for coaching, racquet abuse and for verbal abuse when she accused umpire Carlos Ramos of being "a thief" during Saturday's, September 8, stormy final.

"The fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person, that has emotions, that want to express themselves and they want to be a strong woman". The moment she won the match, his wife and daughter threw their arms in the air in celebration and shed tears of joy, he said. He's a very strict, very decisive umpire, who takes nothing from any opponent whether they're male or female. "Coaching on every point should be allowed in tennis".


Perhaps they could look at an umpire's pay packet at the same time.

At the young age of 20, she's beaten Serena Williams-whom most consider not only the greatest tennis player, but the greatest athlete-not once, but twice.

"Let's give everyone the credit where credit's due and let's not boo anymore", she told the crowd.

"We watch the guys do this all the time", USTA chief Katrina Adams said. "So congratulations, Naomi. No more booing".

After going from goofball to Grand Slam champion, Naomi Osaka can follow her historic US Open triumph by becoming Japan's first world number one, predicts Japanese tennis great Kimiko Date. But a couple of high-profile names have had trouble in this area: Williams on three different occasions at the US Open, and John McEnroe on a far more regular basis.
