Czech Tennis Star Calls Serena Willams' U.S. Open Meltdown 'Bulls***'

Williams accused Ramos of sexism during the US Open final in NY, branding him a "thief" and a "liar" after he issued her with a series of code violations.

"This is bulls-t, for umpires, being women or men doesn't matter", Strycova told Czech website Sport.CZ.

On Wednesday, Osaka appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her historic U.S. Open win and her new game.

"I find it interesting that she did it only when she was losing".

Williams accused Ramos of sexism after the match and pointed out that male players have been more aggressive verbally with umpires than she was, but had been not been penalized the same way.

Tennis - Newly crowned US Open champion Naomi Osaka has signed a new endorsement clothing deal with Adidas that will pay her $8.5 million per year, according to The Times of London.

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.

"Growing up, my dad drove a Nissan, so being able to be a brand ambassador now, it feels like I've come full circle", she said.

This is said to be because the CEO of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), Steve Simon, and the U.S. Tennis Association President Katrina Adams, had released statements in support of Serena.

"Did he have to behave differently only because she was Serena Williams?". "If it's like this, let me know". It was at this point that Ramos called a code violation for verbal abuse. "For me to say "thief" and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark". "And that work ethic is the same whether you are a man or a woman".

"Mr. Ramos' decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules...." Williams claimed Ramos' actions in NY were "sexist" but speaking to BBC Sport yesterday, US Open mixed-doubles champion Murray said: "I think that's a bit far-fetched".
