Jamie Murray: Serena Williams' sexism claims 'far-fetched'

Jamie Murray: Serena Williams' sexism claims 'far-fetched'

It was business as usual until the second set when, per CBS Sports, "Williams was given a warning from Ramos after the umpire determined her coach was attempting to instruct her using hand signals, which results in code violation".

However, the world's third-ranked men's player does not necessarily agree with the assessments of Williams and WTA chief executive Steve Simon that umpires treat women players differently from men.

As Osaka received her trophy after beating Serena Williams in straight sets in the women's singles final, the crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium actually started booing.

"I find it interesting that she did it only when she was losing".

"Serena Williams decides she's gonna blame sexism for the way she was treated and then the media applauds her?"

Naomi Osaka has revealed Serena Williams told her she was proud of her after she claimed the US Open title, Sporting News AU reports.

"Growing up, my dad drove a Nissan, so being able to be a brand ambassador now, it feels like I've come full circle", she said.




Strycova said she didn't understand why the WTA Tour and US Tennis Association released statements supporting Williams.

Williams doubled down after the match, believing that Ramos' docking her a game for verbal abuse was tantamount to sexism.

She said: "My favourites are Serena [Williams] and [Roger] Federer". "He did change the course of the match".

She also called Ramos a "thief" for taking a point from her. "There's a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things, and because they are men, that doesn't happen to them", Williams said to the umpire, Fox News reported.

Williams was fined $17,000, which is deducted from her prize money of $1.85 million as the tournament's runner-up.

"Mr. Ramos' decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules...." In fact, this is the sort of behavior that no one should be engaging in on the court ...

"I think the umpire did what was within his rights", Murray told BBC Sport on Thursday ahead of the U.K.'s Davis Cup.
