The truth about Serena Williams' US Open drama

Serena Williams had a heated exchange with chair umpire Carlos Ramos during the U.S. Open women's final

Lynne Adams tweeted on Tuesday, "Serena Williams is a large black woman who had a complete meltdown, what is racist about this cartoon".

Naomi Osaka discusses everything from her recent US Open match with Serena Williams to her crush on Michael B. Jordan when she appears on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Wednesday.

There are men out here that do a lot worse but because I'm a woman, because I'm a woman you're going to take this away from me?

No matter what your opinions are on the drama surrounding Osaka's win, everyone can agree that life is pretty sweet for her right now.

After the match, Twitter users and tennis commentators alike said the penalties assessed to Williams were excessively harsh, and some said they may have reflected sexism and racism in tennis officiating.

According to the rumours and leaks doing the rounds, Apple will likely unveil three new iPhones on Wednesday, September 12th. YouTuber ConceptsiPhone is among them, releasing a concept video based on the leaked iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus.

The WTA sided with Williams, saying, "There should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men versus women".

Another person identified as an "senior figure" told the Guardian that umpires felt Ramos was "hung out to dry" after the incident and that "no one is standing up for officials" amid reports that the incident is fueling talks of a boycott. It confirmed that, under the Grand Slam rule book, all three violations he issued against Williams - following the three-step penalty process of warning-point-game - were correct.

"I don't think I even thought about feeling sad because there's no experience for me to draw on (from) any other Grand Slam final".

Williams was fined $17,000 for her series of outbursts, which began when she was handed a code violation for receiving coaching during the second set.

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".

It took Matheson and her husband almost the whole day Monday to drive the 60 miles (100 kilometers) off the barrier island. In the Pacific, Olivia became a tropical storm again on a path to hit the Hawaiian islands early Wednesday.

Umpires are reportedly contemplating removing themselves from Williams' matches unless she issues a public apology for criticising Ramos, according to The Times of London. Players get upset on court, players get code violations on court.

"The point is he [Ramos] aggravated the situation, instead of saying "I'm not attacking your character", which is the most important thing he could have said".

One suggestion being floated is to refuse any match assignments involving Williams until she apologizes for vilifying Ramos. "They are all fearful that they could be the next Ramos".

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