Embattled umpire Ramos 'good' despite U.S. Open controversy

Jim Crow memorabilia’ Australian cartoonist attacked for 'racist' Serena Williams caricature

The cartoon creator is Mark Knight, the editorial cartoonist for Australia's Herald Sun. "It had nothing to do with gender or race'".

She was then docked a point for a second violation after smashing her racket, followed by a penalty in which she lost a game because of "verbal abuse" of the chair umpire.

Ramos accused Williams of receiving tips from her coach on the sidelines, to which she said "I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose".

The incident created a debate that has divided tennis, with American Williams suggesting some male players have not received the same treatment for similar outbursts. "We do not believe that this was done", said WTA chief executive Steve Simon said.

This previous weekend, the finals for the U.S. Open erupted in controversy and calls of racism.

But Knight has not yet responded to critiques that he's presented racist tropes in the cartoon. The Daily Mail says Ramos would have earned less than $500 for the match despite having nearly 30 years of experience. "The fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person". On any given day you are a hero and on any given day you are a pariah. You will never be on a court of mine as long as you live. Two, whitewashing of Osaka, who is also black.

Shahbaz Sharif, the former chief minister of Punjab and Nawaz's younger brother, confirmed the news in a tweet. Begum Kulsoom Nawaz leaves behind daughters four children, Asma, Maryam, Hasan and Hussain.

Ramos' handling of the situation has drawn criticism in some quarters, but the ITF feels the 23-time major champion's sanctions from the US Open support his actions.

He said there had been "a tradition" in many Australian cartoons to exaggerate physical characteristics of minority groups, including indigenous Australians, to "trigger a reaction" - such as humour.

"The Sept 10 cartoon not only exudes racist, sexist caricatures of both women, but Williams' depiction is unnecessarily sambo-like", echoed the National Association of Black Journalists, which described the drawing as "repugnant". Open Finals is the issue of coaching during a game. "There's no equality when it comes to what the men are doing to the chair umpires and what the women are doing, and I think there has to be some consistency across the board".

The 36-year-old former World No 1 then smashed a racket after losing a game, which saw Ramos issue another code violation and awarding a point to Osaka.

Others came to Knight's defence, blaming a culture of political correctness for people being offended.

Shimkus also displayed several remarks sent by Fox News viewers on the matter, in-which Williams was trashed by one person for supposedly being a bad sport, while others attacked her for not apologizing ruining "everything for her fantastic opponent".
