Serena Williams melts down, cartoonist branded racist

"Umpires are just upset", Ings said.

In the women's final, Ramos issued Williams three code violations: a coaching warning, a point penalty for racquet abuse, and then verbal abuse when Williams finished extended complaints by calling him a "thief," docking her a game. 1 Boris Becker slammed Serena for her behaviour in the match.

The incident began when Williams was penalized for allegedly receiving direction from her coach on the sidelines via hand signals, which is a violation of US Open rules. Another thing I learned is that even elite "Gold Badge" umpires like Ramos who get assigned to the finals of Grand Slam tournaments get paid next to nothing to do so.

"There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials", the senior figure told The Guardian. "They've lost their safety factor of knowing that these governing bodies will support them".

Steve Simon, chief executive of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), which runs the women's tour, suggested Williams had been treated unfairly.

"But I have my personal opinion that maybe the chair umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit", he said.

Swedish umpire Mohamed Lahyani was reprimanded by the USTA for going "beyond protocol" when he climbed down from his chair to give Nick Kyrgios a pep talk during his second-round match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

Top umpires are also considering the formation of a union, according to a report Tuesday, in part because they are not allowed to discuss specific matches. "I think that's probably the context of the conversation". But, in this case, particularly through the WTA, this has not happened. "The WTA supports coaching through its on-court coaching rule, but further review is needed". The beginning of the tournament saw organisers struggle to contend with a heat-wave in NY that resulted in the implementation of a heat policy - the first time ever it was applied in men's matches.

Williams' critics have argued that this was a case of a tennis player seeing herself as above the laws of the game, and a reminder of the excesses of the John McEnroe era that code violations were introduced to ameliorate. She does have a temper, she is not the only one, but you have just got to know as a professional athlete with all eyes on you on the biggest stage, you have to know when to stop.

In an interview with his good friend and Tribuna Expresso journalist Miguel Seabra, Ramos said he is doing "fine" and denying that he employs any sort of racist or sexist double standard in his matches.
