Umpires reportedly considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches

Umpires reportedly considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches

The apparent plot to refuse the chair when Williams competes is seemingly a direct response to the treatment Carlos Ramos received for slapping Williams with three code violations during the American's 2-6, 4-6 US Open final loss to Naomi Osaka on September 8. Players get upset on court, players get code violations on court.

By convention, good umpires and referees don't bring notice to themselves.

In US Open championships featuring the 23-Grand Slam victor, viewership has been nearly double that reported for the men's final.

"Serena Williams decides she's gonna blame sexism for the way she was treated and then the media applauds her?"

The whataboutery was propagated by Williams and her supporters who blamed Ramos for essentially doing his job. A Nissan North America spokeswoman confirmed in an email that the USA division does not now have plans to utilize her, adding that "the relationship is early and primarily a global one". The umpire sanctioned the coach, which unfortunately reflected on the player.

Later this week, it was no longer only Williams and Ramos being criticized for their conduct, but also an Australian cartoonist for his depiction of the incident.

He described how he was cleared to play by the team doctor at halftime against the Bears so long as he could "deal with the pain". After all, it was Vikings Pro Bowl linebacker Anthony Barr who broke Rodgers' collarbone last season.

The Japanese player'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. He is also known to be a stickler for the rules. "So, I was really happy that she said that", Osaka told Ellen DeGeneres."At the time I did think they were booing at me".

Umpires could refuse to accept the chair when Williams competes, but would call off the apparent protest if Williams apologises for her remarks. The racial subtext is tough to pinpoint too.

Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka joins #Nissan as brand ambassador. Like Osaka, the 28-year-old Japanese sportsman made history by battling into a US Open final, the first such appearance for an Asian-born man. Amid the crowd booing, Williams tried to reassure the new champion that the boos were not aimed at her. She became the first ever Japanese player to ever win the Grand Slam final. She began her victory speech by apologising to the crowd, and explained it at the press conference.

"For me, I'm just me", said Osaka, when asked whether she represented a "new Japan".

She described Williams' behavior on court as "out of line". At 36, she continues to face prejudice.

"He did what he had to do in that match, because she overcame the limit".
