Ramos returns to chair after Serena dramas as stats back him up

Adams had publicly lauded Serena Williams' behaviour after the US Open final but was strangely silent on Ramos' conduct, while she criticised his approach to ESPN. Her father, Leonard Francois, was inspired to get Naomi and her older sister Mari into tennis after watching the Williams sisters rise in the late 1990s.

Osaka had just won her first Grand Slam title after defeating the 23-time major victor Serena Williams at the U.S. Open on Saturday. She was also seen jumping up and down near a broken tennis racket and a pacifier.

Williams became upset when accused of receiving coaching and smashed her racket before berating Ramos.

"Three days before I had drawn a cartoon about Nick Kyrgios being led off by the ears, like you used to do with your children", he said.

"In comparison, I never saw (Rafael) Nadal shouting like that with an umpire". "For me to say "thief" and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark". How dare you insinuate I was cheating? "I'm not going to really think too far ahead", Osaka said.

"There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials". It added that US Open organizers confirmed Ramos' decisions when they chose to fine Williams for the three offenses.

At the same event Williams received two violations, men received 86 code violations while women received only 22 in total, reported The Telegraph.

Mark Knight defended his cartoon.

Popular author JK Rowling said on Twitter, "Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop".

However, he would go on to recant his observation.

"This week has been a dream come to life, and I'm so honored to represent Japan and Nissan on the world stage", Osaka said.

Even former director of the United States Officer of Government Ethics got in on the act.

Both Knight and Herald Sun editor Damon Johnston denied the image was racist, and in defiance, the Herald Sun reprinted the controversial cartoon on its front page alongside other caricatures of US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

"If the self-appointed censors of Mark Knight get their way on his Serena Williams cartoon, our new politically correct life will be very boring indeed", the paper said in an editorial.
