Steph Curry backs Serena Williams over US Open final outburst

Williams later broke her racket and shouted at Ramos, which led to a penalty point and a game penalty. (Mouratoglou admitted he'd been signaling her from the stands but claimed that everyone does it.) In some tournaments, that's not entirely against the rules, but it is at the US Open, and Ramos properly issued a warning for it.

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.

Navratilova said Williams had part of it right - that there was "a huge double standard for women when it comes to how bad behaviour is punished - and not just in tennis", but that she was wrong to be going down the track that she did.

Women's governing body the WTA supported Williams and chief executive Steve Simon said the umpire showed her a different level of tolerance over her outbursts than if she had been a man.

Advertising and sponsorship specialists predict a lot of such opportunities lie ahead for Osaka, who was born in Japan to a Haitian father and a Japanese mother and raised mostly in the U.S. He did what he had to do in that match because she overstepped the limit.

Osaka edged Coupe Rogers champion Simona Halep, US Open finalist Williams, and Western & Southern Open champion Kiki Bertens to top this month's ballot. "The fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions and wants to express themselves and wants to be strong woman".


Ramos' next umpiring gig will be at the Croatia vs. US match in the Davis Cup this weekend. And then before I knew it, I was getting all of this hostile mail and all of that during my last couple of years. When she smashed her racquet in frustration he cited her again, giving her a point penalty.

Williams was fined $17,000 for the blowup.

"It isn't the first time you have had to deal with unfair judgment against you, and yet you have this fantastic ability to come back with such courage and grace, " she said.

"I've always thought that Kei (Nishikori) is a super good role model on the men's side and I wish that there was one on the women's side".

Ramos belatedly received public backing from the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and took his place in the chair for Cilic's routine 6-1 6-3 7-6 (7-5) win over Tiafoe.
