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

Osaka's breakthrough triumph in NY was overshadowed by an explosive row between her opponent Williams and umpire Carlos Ramos which resulted in the 23-times Grand Slam champion being docked a game and fined $17,000. "They feel that no one has their back when they have to make unpopular calls". "Mr. Ramos' decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules and were re-affirmed by the U.S. Open's decision to fine Serena Williams for the three offenses".

USTA president said Williams showed "a great deal of class and sportsmanship", without referencing the feud with the umpire.

"In my mind, I just really wanted to know what was going on", Osaka said "I hear a lot of people in the crowd making noises, and I really wanted to turn around".

"At the time I did think they were booing at me", said Japan's Osaka.

The WTA and USTA appeared to support Williams after her outbursts in a 6-2, 6-4 loss to Naomi Osaka.

However, the world number one Williams received three code violations, therefore, meaning she was docked a game.

There are now discussions about boycotting Williams' matches between a group of umpires that lack a body to represent their interests.

"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 umpires are now allegedly putting forth a united front to stick it to a woman who is already being hammered online by white news outlets, including one that portrayed Williams' as a tantrum-throwing Sambo looking baby with oversized lips and grotesque facial features.

"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.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) is the governing organization for international tennis. "It's a delicate situation, but a la carte arbitration does not exist". But the U.S. Tennis Association and Women's Tennis Association have come out in support of Williams, which has angered the umpire community.

Ramos is "sure of his performance" in Saturday's final but did not elaborate more, according to Tribuna Expresso. "Do not worry about me".

Ramos' umpiring career will continue as he is expected to officiate the Davis Cup semifinal matches starting September 14.
