US Open: Barbora Strycova slams Serena Williams' 'Bullsh--t' meltdown

Are there different standards for men and women in tennis? The USTA head says

During the ESPN broadcast of the trophy ceremony, Williams tried to quiet the racuous, booing crowd of 20,000-plus and put her arm around Osaka. "I find it interesting that she did it only when she was losing".

"This week has been a dream come to life, and I'm so honored to represent Japan and Nissan on the world stage", Osaka said in a statement.

Osaka also said that she felt confident going into the match that she would win. Others chose to point out that Williams' actions had taken away the spotlight from the 20-year-old first time victor Osaka, who became the first Japanese to win a grand slam title.

Naomi Osaka, the young tennis star whose mortification across the net from her idol, Serena Williams, added to a memorable TV spectacle at the U.S. Open Saturday night, has rebounded to score a major endorsement deal.

Afterwards, Williams suggested that Ramos and other umpires are tolerant of worse criticism from male players.

Williams became irate and smashed her racket, leading to an actual code violation.

Ramos called three rules violations against Williams during the event. Ramos issued another code violation, costing Williams the game.

Osaka was born in Osaka, Japan, in 1997 to a Haitian-American father and a Japanese mother, before the family moved to the US when she was three. "I think it's a matter of having a conversation with the two guys and saying let's cut it out, let's slow it down, and then perhaps not understanding how they can have the same conversation with the females".

The rulings by Ramos and outcome of the match stirred controversy, with some backing Williams, believing she'd been unfairly ruled against, and others believing her behavior justified the violations.

Ramos has since spoken out about the backlash via Portugal's Tribuna Expresso.

"I'm fine, given the circumstances", Ramos said, via the Associated Press.

"It's an unhappy situation but "à la carte" refereeing doesn't exist. Do not worry about me!"

In the brief interview with his native-country paper, he did not talk much about the match itself, but said he has received hundreds of messages of support from family members and current and former players. The umpire stayed at his house for several days after the final to avoid problems.

Ramos has been assigned to officiate the Davis Cup semifinal matches between the United States and Croatia, a best-of-five series which begins Friday and ends Sunday in Zadar, Croatia.
