Tennis world rallies around Serena

Posted September 10, 2018

"The chair umpire's decision was final and not reviewable by the Tournament Referee or the Grand Slam Supervisor who were called to the court at that time".

Williams took exception to a coaching violation handed to her by Ramos - adamant that she "would rather lose" than cheat. "I know you guys were here rooting and I was rooting too, but let's make this the best moment we can and we'll get through it. Let's give everyone the credit where credit's due". Williams told Ramos. "You owe me an apology". I mean, like he's never taken a game from a man because he's said thief.

'I'm going to say this: Enjoy, there's not going to be any coaching in the men's final tonight, right?

After Ramos warned Williams about receiving coaching from her team in the stands, the 23-time Grand Slam victor defiantly told the umpire that she doesn't cheat and "would rather lose".

King also tweeted that coaching should be allowed in tennis.

"Well, I don't wanna be rude, she played well and this is her first Grand Slam", Williams said after the match, as she fought back tears. When a man does the same, he's "outspoken' and there are no repercussions", she told Twitter followers.

Spurs delay moving in to new stadium
The NFL game between the Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks set for October 14 will also have to be played at the 90,000 capacity arena.

But it was too late to avoid the offense and the victor, who won her first Grand Slam, cried and was unable to enjoy a historic moment.

During a press conference, Williams criticized the calls from Ramos as sexist.

Celebrities and other athletes shared messages of support for both Ms Williams and Ms Osaka. Some, such as 18-time major champion Chris Evert, thought Ramos should have warned Williams before assessing the "verbal abuse" code violation that triggered the loss of a game.

"She has inspired Japan at a time when the country is reeling in the aftermath of the Hokkaido quake and torrential rain in western Japan", said 35-year-old Shuichi Fukushima, whose voice had gone hoarse from cheering.

Former American world number one and 18 time Grand Slam victor Chris Evert also weighed in on the ruling to dock Ms Wiliams a game. "I just want you to know that".

But Nadal also said: "I respect him a lot".

Evaluating the Ryan Anderson trade for Rockets and Suns
Phoenix has until July 10, 2019, to decide on picking up Anderson's $21.3 million deal or waiving him for $15.6 million . Melton was selected by the Rockets in the second round of the 2018 National Basketball Association draft.

After being broken by Osaka in the second set, Williams smashed her racquet and earned herself a second code violation and a point penalty.

Osaka beat Williams in straights sets to win her first Grand Slam title. She asked fans not to boo and let Osaka enjoy the moment, calling her "a true champion".

She had no problem compartmentalizing Williams' presence during the match itself, as evidenced by her stunning 6-2, 6-4 win.

That's the challenge tennis player Serena Williams was recently faced.

"I just texted Patrick, like, 'what is he talking about?' Because we don't have signals", she said. And yet the likes of a John McEnroe-notorious for loudly swearing and insulting chair umpires-have never faced the kind of penalties that Ramos dished out to Williams on Saturday.

Ramos didn't argue and the score was now 1-1 in the second set, with Osaka starting the next game 15-0 up.
