Jamie Murray: Serena Williams' sexism claims are 'a bit far-fetched'

Tennis Umpires Are Reportedly Considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches After US Open Incident

However, Murray said he disagreed that umpires were more lenient towards men than women.

An anonymous source told The Times of London that there is a growing consensus among umpires that they were "not supported" by the U.S. Tennis Association on several occasions and that Ramos is being unfairly criticized. "And if we don't get that, there might be a potential boycott of her next match", he said.

Williams accused Ramos of sexism after the match and pointed out that male players have been more aggressive verbally with umpires than she was, but had been not been penalized the same way. "At the time, I did think that they were booing me". 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.

Naomi Osaka would go on to with the match in straight sets 6-2, 6-4.

Others though, including Martina Navratilova, said Williams' behavior was inexcusable, creating an atmosphere that marred the competition and disrespected her opponent. It made me feel like it was a sexist remark.

This is said to be because the CEO of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), Steve Simon, and the U.S. Tennis Association President Katrina Adams, had released statements in support of Serena.

The report, looking at fines data at Grand Slam events from 1998 to 2018, found that women were fined 535 times, while men were fined 1,517 times.

Mouratoglou admitted to coaching Williams from the stands but claimed that everyone does it.

I hate to sound whiny, but Serena's incident, whether you think she is a sore loser or not, should bring us to think about how we treat women who are not conventionally "ladylike".

She also called Ramos a "thief" for taking a point from her.

As Williams fell apart, Osaka showed maturity by staying cool to close out her maiden Grand Slam title.

"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". Yet again, it was a privileged group trying to minimise a voice, attempting to keep politics out of sport at all costs. "More voices are needed to do the same". "We have to treat each other fairly and the same". She decided, vehemently, not to stick to sports. Sometimes, all that's left is pure human rage.
