Naomi Osaka to Sign Richest Endorsement Deal with Adidas

  • Former umpire defends Carlos Ramos amid furore

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.

Williams accused Ramos of sexism during the US Open final in NY, branding him a "thief" and a "liar" after he issued her with a series of code violations.

"Growing up, my dad drove a Nissan, so being able to be a brand ambassador now, it feels like I've come full circle", she said Thursday, speaking mostly in English at the vehicle company's headquarters in Yokohama, according to Reuters. She commented, "Me, as a woman, take a lot of warnings".

Trump tariffs are about to hit Apple fans where it hurts
And further waves of U.S. tariffs are expected to take a toll on China's economy, which has already begun to slow down this year. Some of them have criticized Trump's tactics but many echo USA complaints about Chinese market barriers and industrial strategy.

During and after the match, Williams pointed to sexism as part of the reason why she was given the three code violations that led to the significant penalties.

"WTA defence surprised me". Umpire Carlos Ramos believed Williams's coach Patrick Mouratoglou, watching from the stands, was giving her hand signals. "Will the rules change in Serena's matches?". 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. To combat this, some umpires are weighing the idea of saying no every time they are asked to officiate a Williams match, unless she apologizes to Ramos. There's a lot of men out here who have said a lot of things.

The shy Osaka tweeted about the video on Thursday: "I always knew this would come back to haunt me". Navratilova said, "It wasn't the right time to bring it up", and that she would have expected to face similar penalties for acting as Williams did. After the tournament was over, the six-time US Open champion was fined $17,000 for her actions during the match. I really don't. I think men and women are treated in this way or the other way depending on the situation. Williams claimed Ramos' actions in NY were "sexist" but speaking to BBC Sport yesterday, US Open mixed-doubles champion Murray said: "I think that's a bit far-fetched".
