Murray rejects Williams' sexism claims against Carlos Ramos

Murray rejects Williams' sexism claims against Carlos Ramos

The run-in with chair umpire Carlos Ramos, the outburst, the calls of sexism and racism.

"I always knew this would come back to haunt me", she said on Twitter. "I thought I didn't harm the grass".

"The Pan Pacific is so close and I have to be on a diet for my matches, so maybe afterwards for the ice cream".

She lost her temper, and while the reasons behind that might have been building for months, years or generations, that's really beside the point. Tennis has always been theatre with a mix of characters and cast, set on that flawless rectangular stage. "I was more anxious about the person across the net than the official". How dare you insinuate that I was cheating?

But I watched this game and, like many others, I felt divided.

In the aftermath of her defeat, Williams claimed that had she been male, she would have been treated more leniently, but Murray - who won the mixed doubles final alongside Bethanie Mattek-Sands - does not agree. He said so after the match (although Williams was adamant they don't have any established signals).

My friends will tell you how we utterly hate it when a man interrupts a women making a point, only to make the same point the woman was trying to make, what is now called "mansplaining".

"The President offered his support and reiterated the federal government's willingness to help with whatever is needed", Mrs. The two hardware chains said they sent in a total of around 1,100 trucks. "I want to get them as far away as possible".

That was another compliment from the new US Open champion in recognition of the past champion's greatness, and - who to tell? - the woman who may eventually become, especially on results, the greatest ever. She also made an earlier appearance at a five-star Yokohama hotel. She's been booed. She's been called the N-word. She smashed her racket on the court out of frustration at losing a game, and needs to own that-just as her coach has admitted his mistake. It was not a pretty sight. Williams was being punished for being a prat, not because she was a woman, or indeed a woman of colour, as some people have suggested.

"I think she can" help change social attitudes, said Soejima, whose father is African-American.

Ramos also has a reputation as a stickler for the rules.

If the mega contract goes through, it could propel Osaka up the ranks on Forbes' 2018 list of highest paid female athletes, which Williams now leads. It was just a bad day at the office. "I'm legit gonna cry", she tweeted.

Whether tennis learns anything from the incident is yet to be seen. Her point that a male player would've received both was inarguable. Nor the French Open's dress code decision. A victory would've been her 24th Grand Slam singles championship, tying Margaret Court for the most titles all time.

Before taking on Serena Williams during Saturday's U.S. Open Women's Finals, the 20-year-old had two albums on constant repeat.
