Czech Tennis Star Calls Serena Willams' U.S. Open Meltdown 'Bulls***'

Czech Tennis Star Calls Serena Willams' U.S. Open Meltdown 'Bulls***'

It's been eight days since all hell broke loose at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Japan's Nissan Motor Co has signed U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka as its next brand ambassador, the automaker said on Thursday, tapping the tennis star's youth, drive and Japanese roots to appeal to younger customers.

Williams was fined $17,000 for three code violations in the final match.

Sadly, Osaka wasn't shedding tears of joy, which remains the most unfortunate aspect of the entire incident. Calling Ramos a "thief" and a "liar" explicitly violates that rule, and Ramos let Williams vent for quite some time before finally imposing the penalty.

The chair umpire, Mr Carlos Ramos, accused Serena of receiving coaching from her coach which is considered illegal in tennis tournaments. If it was wrong, it should prompt a discussion about what needs to be changed in either the rules or the interpretation of the rules to reduce officiating errors.

First, he said everyone gets coaching, which is widely known in professional tennis, even if Grand Slam rules forbid it. The biggest complaint in the Williams controversy was that Ramos called the third penalty - which cost Williams a game - for being called a "thief".

It was the final of a Grand Slam, for goodness sakes, and Williams deserved some discretion and the benefit of the doubt. The umpire counted that as the second offence and denied her a point. Ramos should add it to his reading list.

"You will never, ever, ever be on another court of mine as long as you live", she said during the on court outburst. Although her parents had her represent Japan for non-financial reasons, it definitely proved to be an important decision for many reasons, even financially.

No matter. Enough should've been enough. She and Mr. Ramos were, in effect, talking past each other. A short time later, she smashed her racket in frustration and was docked a point.

"This doesn't happen if she's not losing".

"You're told to just turn around and try to focus so I tried to do that", she said. "You definitely can't go back in time".

"I just thought I shouldn't have any regrets".

Murray, however, told BBC Sport that Williams' accusations of sexism are "a bit far-fetched", adding: "I've seen a lot of people get called for coaching before, and you might have a grumble and stuff, but you get on with it". She commented, "Me, as a woman, take a lot of warnings".

"He said [Mouratoglou] made a motion". I think it's an opportunity now for them to speak up on those technical issues like coaching - do they want it? They're going to be allowed to do that because of today. "And with Serena, I started thinking about those things again".
