Stop Saying that Serena Williams is a 'Victim'

Are there different standards for men and women in tennis? The USTA head says

According to Associated Press journalist Andrew Dampf, US Tennis Association head Katrina Adams, who had fiercely supported Williams, was heard apologizing to Ramos at the draw for the Davis Cup semis.

Amid the excitement of Naomi Osaka winning the women's title at the U.S. Open tennis tournament last weekend, some in Japan are wondering whether she will continue to compete for their country at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Serena Williams' claims that she was punished more harshly during her US Open umpire row because she is female have been described as "far-fetched" by Jamie Murray.

Osaka, whose world ranking rose 12 spots to No. 7 on Monday, made history on September 8 in NY by becoming the first Japanese to win a Grand Slam singles title, beating decorated veteran Serena Williams in straight sets. "Carlos Ramos is one of the most experienced and respected umpires in tennis", it said.

"Umpires keep asking: 'What if it was me in that chair on Saturday?' There is a widespread feeling that Carlos was hung out to dry for almost 48 hours and that no one is standing up for officials".

"I couldn't tell what was going on, because it was just so loud in there", she added. When she smashed her racket, Ramos docked her a point.

"I thought about those things watching Serena, and I said, 'This kid has been playing all of these years, and I don't think she's ever been accused of cheating before it happened on Saturday.'" he said, "And [tennis coaches], they all cheat, no matter how you look at it".

Hundreds more flights canceled as Florence nears the Carolina coastal area
Susan Faulkenberry Panousis has stayed in her Bald Head Island, North Carolina home during prior hurricanes, but not this time. People in the Carolinas had the daytime hours Thursday to complete their final preparations to ride out or escape the storm.

It is bad enough that a star of Williams stature exploded in such a politically charged rant at the judge, but what hurt the judges even more is that both the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) came to Williams' support on her charges against the judge.

An anonymous source told The Times of London that umpires are considering a boycott of matches involving Williams.

On Monday, the ITF finally backed Ramos via a statement.

"I don't believe it's a good idea to apply a standard of, 'If men can get away with it, women should be able to, too",' she said.

Osaka said she was taught as a youngster to ignore the other side of the court.

Ramos has since spoken out about the backlash via Portugal's Tribuna Expresso.

"You're stressing me out", Osaka quipped, somewhat sheepishly. But Powell tells Marketing Daily he thinks it is likely: "Brands are smart to share their core values with their consumers", he says.
