Male tennis players punished more than women, report

Male tennis players punished more than women, report

Mouratoglou controversially admitted to coaching Williams from the sideline, saying that it was not an uncommon occurrence in the game.

"He said he made a motion", she told host Lisa Wilkinson in an interview set to air next Sunday.

"You know I can not talk about that", Ramos said. "It was never a financially motivated decision nor were we ever swayed either way by any national federation".

"I feel it's really important to stand up for what you believe in", she said.

The entire exchange led to an awkward moment in Queens as fans boo'd non-stop after Osaka's historic win.

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.

"I just don't understand it, if you're a female, you should be able to do even half of what a guy can do".

Ramos was unable to defend himself over the weekend as the rules prevent umpires from commenting on the matches they oversee.

President Trump claims he handled Sen.

Osaka, the daughter of a Haitian father and Japanese mother, became Japan's first Grand Slam singles champion by thumping Serena 6-2, 6-4 in the controversial final in which Serena challenged the umpire after being given a code violation.

Adams came under fire in some circles for inflaming the sensitive situation when she released a statement hours after the final supporting Serena's protest, labelling Serena a "true champion" who "showed a great deal of class and sportsmanship".

In the aftermath of her defeat, Williams claimed that had she been male, she would have been treated more leniently, but Murray - who won the mixed doubles final alongside Bethanie Mattek-Sands - does not agree.

"It's hard to know, and debatable, whether Ms. Williams could have gotten away with calling the umpire a thief if she were a male player", Navratilova wrote.

Tennis star Serena Williams called the chair umpire a "thief" and "liar", while also accusing him of sexism during her unsuccessful U.S. Open final - Now, another tennis star is speaking out against Williams. She was called on three violations over the course of the match.

Carlos Ramos is working the best-of-five Davis Cup semifinal series between Croatia and the United States.

In a second tweet, King said: "When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it".
