New Stats Support Umpire Carlos Ramos In Dispute With Serena Williams

Serena Williams melts down, cartoonist branded racist

Viewers could not have guessed that she won by looking at her crestfallen, teary-eyed expression throughout the immediate aftermath of the match.

However some Twitter users weren't so quick to forget the reason for the cartoon in the first place.

On Wednesday, Strycova lambasted those accusations and offered her own suggestion for the display as she went up against the Williams camp.

"Mr. Ramos" decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules and were reaffirmed by the U.S. Open's decision to fine Serena Williams for the three offences'. You are the U.S. Open champion.

Glowing media reports called her a new heroine for Japan. "She's unbelievable ... just a wonderful woman and a human being".

It's too soon to say whether Adidas will turn its brand conversation to race and gender bias, as Nike has chosen to do with its controversial decision to use Colin Kaepernick in its "Dream Crazy" campaign. "I think a lot of it maybe got over-amplified because it was the finals of the US Open".

The jeers mostly were a response to the controversy that overshadowed the match: The chair umpire assessed Williams a full game penalty after she berated him for accusing her of cheating by taking illegal coaching.

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. "For me, it's just who I am", she said, per Reuters.

Adams came under fire in some circles for inflaming the sensitive situation when she released a statement hours after the final supporting Serena's protest, labelling Serena a "true champion" who "showed a great deal of class and sportsmanship".

Britain's Jamie Murray has rejected claims of men being treated more leniently than women by umpires.

"With Osaka's win, we can expect a boom in attention to the sport in Japan, similar to what Nishikori brought when he played in the US Open final four years ago", said Toshihiro Nagahama, chief economist at Dai-Ichi Life Research Institute.

The International Tennis Federation, meanwhile, defended 47-year-old Ramos and said he acted "at all times with professionalism and integrity".

On the other side of the net, though, the 20-year-old Osaka kept her cool in her first Grand Slam final to win 6-2 6-4.
