Roger Federer calls for changes after Serena Williams fine

Not faring well in her returns in the first set, which she lost, moving toward the net was an effective measure for Serena to turn the tables. Williams was assessed a point and then was forfeited a game for arguing with the umpire and breaking her racket. However, he also said he hopes sexism didn't play a role at the US Open. Drawing on my own experience having played in the US Open as a professional tennis player in the 1990s, I would like to review what happened in NY as both a former player and a reporter. I just feel like the fact that I have to go through this is an example for the next person that has emotions and that want to express themselves and they want to be a strong woman, and they're going to be allowed to do that because of today.

Williams is undoubtedly a sporting icon; she has this vibrant personality and relentless passion for everything she does that makes her so admirable and entertaining. Carillo also spoke up in defense for Osaka, blaming Williams for "poisoning the atmosphere" for the 20-year-old victor.

In the four majors of tennis - the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open - as well as in other tennis tournaments, there is a code of conduct set forth in the rules. He was the one who broke the rule that precipitated all that followed.

Why are Ramos and other umpires above reproach and exempt from apologizing? While Williams' comments were over-the-top, there are times when similar behavior does not receive a warning.

'By the crude math that we use to judge couples, it sure seems like they both won-or at least, Williams and Ohanian are very good at reassuring us of this, ' Schwedel wrote. However, the situation in the final this time just escalated.

Man dies after climbing on top of moving Metro-North train
Passengers on the train tell News 12 that many people on board were returning from Wednesday night's Yankees game versus Boston. Metro-North riders claim they were delayed more than two hours after a passenger climbed atop a train and got electrocuted.

The booing at the trophy ceremony was not targeted at Osaka. Williams stamped a "liar" and "thief" label on Ramos.

That's really the crux of what was so infuriating, why I was so angry watching Williams basically get put in her place and kept down during the match with the successive penalties. She acknowledged Ms. Osaka's victory, and though unhappy about how it came about, she hugged her and congratulated her.

Seth Combs' comments about the U.S. Open went from ignorant to inaccurate to preposterous ["When a loss is really a win", September 12]. Serena is, after all, a 23-time Grand Slam champion! That empathy is cherished in business leaders-when you admit you've created an unintended negative result, do your best to take ownership of it. But this week, retired tennis player John McEnroe - who himself is a legendary tennis player and member of the Tennis Hall of Fame - made a decision to put his own unusual stamp on it.

"However, I've no doubts he will continue to act with dignity and integrity".
