New Stats Support Umpire Carlos Ramos In Dispute With Serena Williams

Serena Williams was not happy with the chair umpire in the US Open final

Williams claimed Ramos' actions in NY were "sexist" but speaking to BBC Sport yesterday, US Open mixed-doubles champion Murray said: "I think that's a bit far-fetched".

Until now, the Reddit co-founder had extricated himself from the fallout following Williams' display, in which she accused umpire Carlos Ramos of sexism after she was issued three code-violations in her straight sets loss to Noami Osaka.

"If the self-appointed censors of Mark Knight get their way on his Serena Williams cartoon, our new politically correct life will be very boring indeed", the paper wrote in an editorial on its front page.

U.S. Open women's champion Naomi Osaka is back in Japan celebrating not only her landmark victory, but also a sponsorship deal with vehicle manufacturer Nissan.

The 23-time grand slam champion vehemently denied that accusation and, after smashing her racket having been broken in the second set, was docked a point by Ramos.

The CEO of USTA, the governing body of tennis in the USA, was asked if she believes female players are held to different standards than men.

Knight, who has a reputation for controversial cartoons, was pilloried from far and wide for his portrayal - including by a member of the US Congress and a large portion of the 22,000 people who commented on his Twitter post showing the drawing.

Knight said his cartoon was simply about Serena's poor behaviour.

Controversy and turmoil has been roiling ever since Ramos gave Serena Williams a violation for receiving coaching during last Saturday's final defeat to Naomi Osaka.

Despite evidence to the contrary, a mob of Twitter users would go after Knight declaring him and his cartoon racist.

"I don't think I even thought about feeling sad because there's no experience for me to draw on in any other Grand Slam final", she added. "I have since texted her coach to make sure she understands that she is celebrated and how proud I am of her".

"I think for this year my immediate goal would be to get to Singapore", said Osaka after putting herself firmly in contention to reach the season-ending WTA Finals. When I was talking about the outcome, I was really talking about the behavior of the audience, of the fans.

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