U.S. Open umpire focusing on 'working again,' not Serena controversy

Tennis Umpires Are Reportedly Considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches After US Open Incident

Report: Tennis Umpires Mulling Boycott Of Serena Williams Matches

In a story that has transcended sports and become one of the biggest headlines in the country, Serena Williams supposed "screwjob" at the U.S. Open has turned into a much more complicated issue than simply an inquiry into the obscure rules of sportsmanship in the sport of tennis.

It was at the point she called him a "thief" that Ramos penalised Williams for verbal abuse, and docked her a game.

In the aftermath of her defeat, Williams claimed that had she been male, she would have been treated more leniently, but Murray - who won the mixed doubles final alongside Bethanie Mattek-Sands - does not agree.

"In comparison, I never saw (Rafael) Nadal shouting like that with an umpire". "Professional tennis players, sometimes, I think we lose sight of that".

Strycova admitted she found it odd when the WTA Tour and U.S. Tennis Association came out with their support of Williams. "It made me feel like it was a sexist remark", she told reporters on Saturday.

"WTA defence surpised me". "He did change the course of the match".

Recent deliveries to the local distribution company from Tennessee Gas Pipeline "have been around 10,000 MMBtu, or 0.01 Bcf/d. Some 400 people spent the night in shelters, and school was canceled Friday as families waited to return to their homes.

"Ramos is tough, one of the best umpires in the world", Strycova said. She used her powerful serve and groundstrokes to outhit Williams in the final on Saturday. "If it's like this, let me know", Strycova said.

During and after the match, Williams pointed to sexism as part of the reason why she was given the three code violations that led to the significant penalties. "There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things, and because they are men, that doesn't happen to them", Williams said to the umpire, Fox News reported. "And that work ethic is the same whether you are a man or a woman".

Ramos belatedly received public backing from the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and took his place in the chair for Cilic's routine 6-1 6-3 7-6 (7-5) win over Tiafoe.

"I want to do well at the Pan Pacific Open and maybe year-end top five - but I'm not putting pressure on myself".

She described Williams' behavior on court as "out of line".

"I think the umpire did what was within his rights", Murray told BBC Sport on Thursday ahead of the U.K.'s Davis Cup.
