Naomi Osaka’s multimillion Adidas deal is reportedly higher than her tennis salary

International Tennis Federation defends umpire after Serena Williams flap Naomi Osaka Is First Japanese Tennis Player to Win Grand Slam
| 13 September, 2018, 13:54

Osaka's budding stardom fully bloomed at the U.S. Open, with her Saturday triumph over Serena Williams helping her make the leap from being a favorite among tennis fans to a household name here and overseas.

Osaka's breakthrough triumph in NY was overshadowed by an explosive row between her opponent Williams and umpire Carlos Ramos which resulted in the 23-times Grand Slam champion being docked a game and fined $17,000.

The anonymous source believes they have not been supported by the USTA on multiple occasions, adding that Ramos was "thrown to the wolves for simply doing his job and was not willing to be abused for it".

The tennis umpire that came under fire from player, Serena Williams, after he called three violations on her during the U.S. Open Final is speaking up for the first time since, saying he's "fine".

Williams was cited by Ramos for getting coaching signals; for breaking her racket, which automatically cost her a point because it was her second code violation of the match; and for calling Ramos a "thief," which cost her a game because it was her third code violation. It added that US Open organizers confirmed Ramos' decisions when they chose to fine Williams for the three offenses.

"I've seen other men call other umpires several things", she said at a news conference.

It was March and Naomi Osaka had just won the biggest match of her life, fulfilling the promise that many pundits had long foreseen. "I don't think [Serena] looked at me, so that's why she didn't think I was (coaching)", he told ESPN.


American Serena Williams and Japan's Naomi Osaka were competing in the championship.

Since Saturday, Osaka has been thrust into the global spotlight after defeating Williams, who received three code violations during the final match of the Open. "For me to say "thief" and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark", she said.

"Still, despite the threats, Ings did not think that the judges would rise up and boycott Williams" future matches.

Though many were outraged with the cartoon, a number of individuals agreed with the message of the illustration and stated that Williams's attitude in the tennis court was deplorable.

"It's a delicate situation, but umpiring "a la carte" doesn't exist". "You owe me an apology". Even the International Tennis Federation (ITF), which stood by the judges, waited 48 hours before announcing a position.

Ramos is "sure of his performance" in Saturday's final but did not elaborate more, according to Tribuna Expresso.

The Women's Tennis Association also backed Williams, with their CEO Steve Simon saying, "The WTA believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men versus women".
