Serena Williams Addresses U.S. Open Controversy In New Interview

8 2018 Serena Williams of the US argues with chair umpire Carlos Ramos while playing Naomi Osaka of Japan during their 2018 US Open women's singles final match in New York.- Serena Williams has been fined $1

"That took nerves of steel", he said, while also highlighting the lifetime grit, tenacity and brilliance of Serena Williams, one of his favorite players.

The statistics show women are nearly twice as likely as men to receive coaching violations.

"It's not something that I have to think about", she said.

Osaka admits that she is superstitious with regards to the music she tunes in to before her matches.

"Ramos is tough, one of the best umpires in the world", she explained.

Amid the swirl of high-pressure matches, interviews and endorsement negotiations, it's a question she hasn't dwelt on.

Williams received several violations during her match with Osaka.

An analysis of the past 20 years of grand-slam events reveals that men have been handed 1,534 code violations, versus just 526 handed to women. Chair umpire Carlos Ramos issued a violation after he suspected Mouratoglou of coaching Williams during her defeat against Japan's Naomi Osaka on September 8. It's doubtful that this month's Grand Slam trophy will be the last that she holds aloft.

Mouratoglou admitted he was trying to get a message to Williams, but also insisted it was a common practice in tennis. The WTA defense surprised me.

"She is clearly proud of her Haitian heritage and it's inspiring to see her acknowledge it and its influence on her".

Although the International Tennis Federation (ITF) had come to Ramos' defense, saying that his decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules.

"Carlos Ramos is one of the most experienced and respected umpires in tennis".

While Naomi's second, decisive two-set victory against her idol at the 2018 US Open proved that her first win was not a fluke, it was overshadowed by a dispute between Serena and umpire Carlos Ramos.

"It is understandable that this high profile and regrettable incident should provoke debate", it continued. A short time later, she smashed her racket in frustration and was docked a point. Did she have to behave differently only because she was Serena Williams? Yet he didn't win that 2014 match, nor any Grand Slam tournament.

"We can not measure ourselves by what we think we should also be able to get away with".

As part of the partnership, Osaka will appear in global promotions and advertising for Nissan, and Nissan will support her activities as a tennis player, including providing Nissan vehicles at her tour destinations. "Thank you, Serena Williams, for calling out this double standard. If you're a female you should be able to do even half of what a guy can do", she said.
