Carlos Ramos: Umpire speaks after Serena Williams controversy

Carlos Ramos: Umpire speaks after Serena Williams controversy

"I don't think I even thought about feeling sad because there's no experience for me to draw on in any other Grand Slam final", she added.

I hate to sound whiny, but Serena's incident, whether you think she is a sore loser or not, should bring us to think about how we treat women who are not conventionally "ladylike". Osaka, who became the first-ever Japanese-born Grand Slam victor, said she was crying when she heard the boos, because she thought they were aimed at her.

"I've seen a lot of people get called for coaching before, and you might have a grumble and stuff but you get on with it".

Does the umpires threat to boycott Williams future games tantamount to saying that although most, if not all professional tennis players have had similar outbursts on the court, its this particular outbursts of the greatest tennis player of all time — a black woman — that are so damaging to their profession?

"Me, as a woman, take a lot of warnings. I don't believe it's a good idea to apply a standard of, 'If men can get away with it, women should be able to, too.' Rather, I think the question we have to ask ourselves is this: What is the right way to behave to honor our sport and to respect our opponents?"

Despite the myriad of controversies surrounding last weekend's event, US Open champ Naomi Osaka said she is not sad that the behavior of Serena Williams has, for now, overshadowed her win.

Ramos was the chair umpire for the second singles between Marin Cilic and Frances Tiafoe.

"We can not measure ourselves by what we think we should also be able to get away with".

Samsung sent out invitations on Friday (Sep 14) for an Oct 11 event to launch a new mobile device under its Galaxy line. The company also announced a bunch of other things, including a new Bixby-powered smart speaker .

The 51st-ranked Harrison, who was called in as a late replacement for the injured Jack Sock, said the women's final "was a very touchy situation". "If it's like this, let me know", Strycova said.

It is true that Serena's coach was trying to signal her but Serena was in fact looking at the other side of the court and did not notice.

Against Croatia, Johnson will face Borna Coric in Friday's opening singles match, followed by Cilic versus Davis Cup debutant Frances Tiafoe.

In Saturday's doubles, Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavic will face Bryan and Harrison.

The victor will meet either France or Spain in the final.

"But don't look up to me, because I don't want that responsibility!"

"The one thing we know about Davis Cup is that rankings rarely matter", Courier said.
