U.S. Open umpire focusing on 'working again,' not Serena controversy

However, in the four Grand Slam events over the past 20 years, men have been penalized significantly more often than women, according to a New York Times report on Friday.

It is well known that Williams is one of Osaka's idols but she's now opened up on how she narrowly avoided bumping into another of her heroes at the US Open. Williams was outraged, and demanded an apology, telling Ramos that "I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose".

The series of incidents had led to some of the most remarkable scenes in a Grand Slam final as Williams accused Ramos of being a "liar" and a "thief".

Ramos is back in the umpire's chair this weekend when Croatia host the United States in a Davis Cup tie in Zadar and U.S. captain Jim Courier said of the Williams incident: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicized".

"There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials. Overall, I felt really happy and know I accomplished a lot".

She revealed despite having beaten the former world champion, Williams was quick to comfort her among the jeers of the crowd echoing through the arena as she received her trophy. The WTA defense surprised me.

"He did what he had to do in that match, because she overcame the limit". "He did change the course of the match".

The shy Osaka tweeted about the video on Thursday: "I always knew this would come back to haunt me".

Williams smashed her racquet, breaking it, bringing about her second violation for racquet abuse, resulting in a point penalty. She was disqualified from a semifinal match at the 2009 US Open for threatening a lineswoman. "For me to say "thief" and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark".

Williams was fined $17,000 for the rules violations, and the International Tennis Federation backed Ramos, saying his "decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules".

She described Williams' behavior on court as "out of line".

"I think the umpire did what was within his rights", Murray told BBC Sport.
