In the second set of Williams'match against Naomi Osaka, Ramos warned Williams for receiving coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches.
On Sunday, a day after the controversy, Ramos said he did not go out much, trying to avoid the angry fans. But her claims were soon undermined by statistics showing there were 86 code violations handed out to male players at the US Open and only 22 to women.
There are now discussions about boycotting Williams' matches between a group of umpires that lack a body to represent their interests.
Tennis umpires are reportedly considering a boycott of matches involving Serena Williams after her incident with chair umpire Carlos Ramos at the United States open final, according to the United Kingdom paper The Times. "The umpiring fraternity is thoroughly disturbed at being abandoned by the WTA", Richard Ings, a former top-level umpire who is now retired, told ESPN.
"I would say a championship match in terms of high-level talent on the court between those two ladies... obviously Naomi deserved to win and she played wonderful", Curry told Omnisport.
The umpiring community also had Ramos' back, as they have threatened to boycott Williams' matches.

"I think the umpire did what was within his rights", Murray told BBC Sport.
The chair umpire at the centre of the saga has spoken publicly for the first time since the match, saying he is "fine". "I'm not going to say, 'Oh, I can't draw that because that's a no-goarea.' What does that say about the way the world's going?"
"It's a delicate situation, but umpiring "a la carte" doesn't exist. Don't worry about me".
A video emerged on Twitter yesterday of a young Osaka setting up a "chopstick competition" with her older sister Mari, where the aim was to see who could place 10 beans into a bowl and then take it out the quickest - with chopsticks!
