Report: Tennis Umpires Mulling Boycott Of Serena Williams Matches
15 September, 2018, 17:55
Osaka had just won her first Grand Slam title after defeating the 23-time major victor Serena Williams at the U.S. Open on Saturday.
The chair umpire, Mr Carlos Ramos, accused Serena of receiving coaching from her coach which is considered illegal in tennis tournaments. "I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose", Williams told Ramos in a breathless rage. "You owe me an apology". There's a lot of men out here who have said a lot of things.
The real controversy, however, was William's charge that the warning for cheating and subsequent penalties constituted sexism, saying that many players get away with coaching - and that male players aren't punished for complaining to the umpire.
"This week has been a dream come to life, and I'm so honored to represent Japan and Nissan on the world stage", Osaka said.
Super Typhoon Mangkhut slams into Philippines
Those who live in the typhoon's projected path and can not flee have been reinforcing their homes and stocking up on food. Authorities in the Philippines have said they were better prepared for the storm than in previous years.
The Japanese player said she thought the jeers were directed at her, and began to get a bit overwhelmed by the situation, having missed Williams's argument with the umpire.
"But if you were talking about my tennis, I think my tennis is not very Japanese".
As a young woman who is trying to wade through the world, I have noted that forthrightness, boldness and confidence in women is not welcome. They think differently. And men don't really understand women. For me, it blows my mind. "But I'm going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equal [treatment]". Everyone who has experienced discrimination can empathise with her passionate plea.
The United States Tennis Association (USTA) and Women's Tennis Association (WTA), however, supported Williams' accusations that Ramos' actions were based in sexism.
Williams was fined $17,000 for her violations, which was taken out of her runner-up prize total of $1.85 million.
Mouratoglou admitted to coaching Williams from the stands but claimed that everyone does it. She was called emotional, her rage labelled a meltdown, a tantrum.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Osaka revealed what Williams told her on stage that night. WTA CEO Steve Simon called for changes in officiating, saying that "there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men vs. women".
And so we arrive back at that platitudinous phrase: stick to sports.
