Serena said she was proud of me - Osaka

16 September 2018, 04:48 | Anna Jefferson

Williams accused Ramos of sexism during the US Open final in NY, branding him a "thief" and a "liar" after he issued her with a series of code violations. Will rules change in Serena's matches? When she smashed her racket, Ramos docked her a point.

"For me, I don't feel sad because I wouldn't even know what I'm expected to feel", she said.

One of the most controversial Grand Slam finals of all time divided tennis and triggered a debate about sexism in the sport, fuelled by Williams's assertion that Ramos would not have dealt with a male player in the same way.

Tennis icon Billie Jean King said she believes tennis applies a double standard to women compared with men, and that a similar outburst by a male player would have drawn no repercussions.

"If I say something I can tweet it out right now and the whole world can read it, and you can own that", he said.

Osaka received $3.8 million for her U.S. Open win, more than doubling her career winnings to date.

That anger would later cost her the game, and ultimately the match - although Osaka was clearly the better player on the night and would've probably taken out the match regardless. "I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose", Williams told Ramos in a breathless rage.




As Williams fell apart, Osaka showed maturity by staying cool to close out her maiden Grand Slam title. She was called on three violations over the course of the match. "If it's like this, let me know".

Ramos is back in the umpire's chair this weekend when Croatia host the United States in a Davis Cup tie in Zadar and U.S. captain Jim Courier said of the Williams incident: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicized". Men are responsible for more than 86 per cent of these code violations, as well as just under 80 per cent of verbal-abuse violations.

She also called Ramos a "thief" for taking a point from her.

It remains to be seen whether Serena will face any further ramifications for her behaviour, after being fined $17,000 in the wake of the incident.

But the International Tennis Federation defended Ramos and said in a statement that his "decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules" and that he "acted at all times with professionalism and integrity".

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.
