Tennis umpire finally speaks out on Serena Williams US Open outburst

Naomi Osaka

Naomi Osaka said Serena Williams's row with the umpire during the U.S. Open final had not altered her feelings about winning a Grand Slam largely because she had no idea how she was supposed to react, the Japanese said on Thursday.

Some tennis umpires are upset over the "verbal abuse" that Carlos Ramos received from Williams, and the amount of attention he's gotten after the final.

In The Times report, one anonymous official told the outlet about umpires building solidarity with each other against Williams, as they believe the United States Tennis Association sold out Ramos by not defending him against Williams' claims of sexism and insults during the match. "I was lucky enough to play against her before, but in the finals of a Grand Slam, it feels way more special. The fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person".

"There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials", the person told the Guardian. "I don't think [Serena] looked at me, so that's why she didn't think I was (coaching)", he told ESPN.

The governing body's support for Ramos came after the WTA, which operates the women's tour, was critical of the way things went between him and Williams in NY. "Ramos undertook his duties as an official according to the relevant rule book", it added.

The ITF's support for Ramos comes after the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) expressed disappointment over the handling of the match and the USTA's plans to review its communication policies after a string of umpiring controversies.

Williams later smashed her racket and was docked a game for an outburst at Ramos stemming from her anger over the initial violation.

As well as winning the US Open women's singles title Osaka won $US3.8 million, but she told Degeneres that, despite not even owning a auto, she doesn't want to spend the money on herself. Both players were booed as they wept during an emotional trophy-presentation ceremony in which Williams asked the crowd to "make this the best moment we can".

"It's an unhappy situation but "à la carte" refereeing doesn't exist".

One source, who has been privy to some of the discussions, said: "Umpires don't have any independent means of representation and are employed by the governing bodies. Don't you worry about me", the 47-year-old is quoted as saying in the newspaper.

Ramos will return to the chair on Friday, officiating the men's semi-final of the Davis Cup, he confirmed.
