Czech Tennis Star Fires At Serena Williams for US Open Behavior

Chair umpire Carlos Ramos docked Serena Williams a game during the US Open final for'verbal abuse

As a result of the interracial relationship, her mother did not have contact with her family for over 10 years. "That's all I can say", Ramos told The Associated Press on Friday.

"From my name, they don't expect to see a black girl".

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.

"At the time, I did kind of think they were booing at me 'cause I couldn't tell what was going on because it was just so loud in there, so it was a little bit stressful", she added.

Nissan said the passionate videogame player and Beyonce fan would appear in global promotions and advertising in its three-year contract, in something of a branding departure for a firm whose popular GT-R sports auto attracts men aged 40 and older. "It's a delicate situation, but a la carte arbitration does not exist". She'll still trail Serena, which isn't surprising at all.

It never happened that way.

While Ramos is known as a stickler for the rules, the USA team won't have to worry about coaching violations since captains sit courtside during Davis Cup matches and are permitted to give advice throughout the match. Williams received one of her violations for smashing her racket, but over the past two decades, men have received 86 percent of the racket abuse code violations. She knew Ramos wouldn't reconsider; neither would tournament director Brian Earley, who was called to the court. She was promptly given a game penalty, pushing Osaka into the lead, who went on to serve out an astounding victory.

Serena Williams' meltdown at the US Open has lit the fuse for an explosive debate on Sports Sunday with panellist Richard Freedman accusing her of being a poor loser.

Compatriot, Kei Nishikori came close four years ago but lost to Marin Cilic in straights.

After the final on September 8, Naomi all but apologised for beating Serena, and said, "I want to be like her".

From what I understand, this is fairly common practice, but still illegal, so the Umpire was well within his rights to call it.

"I didn't say "stupid umpire", I said "stupid umpiring".

While her payday from the US Open wasn't too shabby- $3.8 million in case you were curious, she was on Thursday, signed on as brand ambassador for Nissan motors in Yokohama, Japan at a grand welcome ceremony held in her honour.

But the company has been quick to add her to its "Creators Unite" campaign.

Nissan joins a growing number of companies which have enlisted Osaka for endorsement, including Adidas AG, Yonex Co, Nissin Foods Co, Wowow Inc and Citizen Watch Co.

Yahoo mentions how this contract will move her higher up on the Forbes' highest paid female athlete list.

The other reason we need to forget about Williams is Naomi Osaka.
