    The only victim here is Naomi Osaka.

    C'mon ladies. Get your facts right before you discuss the matter. The same umpire punished male players (Djokovic, Murray and Nadal) in the past for similar violations of conduct as well. Rules are there to be adhered to. It wasn't harsh. He simply did his job. First, a verbal warning. Next, a point penalty. Subsequently, a game penalty. Go check the rule book before you start accusing people.
    Now just give credit to Naomi for playing lights out.

    These comments are coming from people that have no understanding of the sport and its history. They seem to suggest that there was some sort of sexism involved in these penalties. This is the same umpire that have penalized male superstars like Djokovic, Nadal and Murray at the French Open and Wimbledon in the past. The facts are clear, Serena's coach did give coaching signals, she did break her racquet purposefully. Then Serena kept on badgering the umpire repeatedly. She kept on saying "you owe me an apology", although the umpire never called Serena a cheat despite the fact she was getting coaching signals. That was followed by "you will never umpire another one of my matches". Umpire Ramos kept his silence. It wasn't until she said "you're a thief", he imposed the 3rd code violation costing her the game. Some people are suggesting that rules should not be enforced in grand slam finals or against its superstars. If not then, when should they be enforced? No superstar is greater than the integrity of the sport. The French Open just implemented a dress code after Serena came to a match dressed in yoga tights, is that sexism or racism? Life is simple, follow the rules, especially when you are making $$ millions.

    Again, these View broads don't have a clue. John McEnroe was DISQUALIFIED at the Australian Open. I'm surprised that the same thing did not happen to Serena especially after the 3d (!) violation. Tennis is so anti-MEN. Might I add that men play 3 to 5 sets per match, whereas the women only play 2 to 3. So why are the women paid the same? I wonder where are the feminists on this??

    Sexism did NOT cost Serena the US open. Naomi Osaka EARNED and DESERVED her win. How about talking about how a crowd of supposed adults booed a a young woman and forever tainted Naomi's first ever Grand Slam?!?!

    WOW!!!! when clueless people talk about things that they don't understand!
    There is no excuse for such a behavior!
    if the umpire applies the rules he is sexist?!!! Are u kiding me?!! u forgot to accuse him of racism too!! :))) unbelievable!!!!
    If u use sexism as an excuse for such a bevavior u are making this type of behavior legit and give a bad exemple to the younger generations! Serena has a huge responsability as a role model. To hide behind sexism is just embarrasing!!

    For god sake, just honestly, and I mean honestly ask yourself the following question. If it was Naomi who got coaching, if it was Naomi who broke her tennis racket, and if it was Naomi who insulted the umpire by calling him a liar and a thief, and if it was Serena who won the tournament.... If everything is reversed, then ask yourself if people would be fighting for Naomi's right to insult the umpire? Would people think the match be stolen from Naomi? Just honestly ask yourself this. I guarantee you that 99% of Serena fans would not have fought for Naomi and would have said Naomi misbehaved and did not deserve to win. So it isn't about women's right, is it?

    So in America, kids also should not be punished if they cheat or call names or break things because they have rights? Serena wanted to right to cheat....is that called women's right in America? Strange country.

    So many people in the US media talk about this issue without knowing the rules of tennis, ridiculous. Ramos was strict but fair. Osaka was better, congrats to her.

    He only made it worse and worse?
    No, Serena exacerbated the situation. She was playing all sorts of cards She was playing the mother card, the gender card and the race card. She couldn't have left it well enough alone. Meanwhile, Naomi standing on the other side of the court looking well composed and quite frankly, the better player both in stats and composure.
    At LEAST I can give the View brownie point for acknowledging Osaka and that it was her win!

    For the record, Nadal is one of very few players who has NEVER broken a racket. Even Federer & Djokovic have broken rackets, but not Nadal.

    The only person who took anything away from Serena was Serena. The rules are clear about what constitutes an infraction and who is responsible. She turned a warning into multiple penalties because of her ego and then played the gender card. Even if there were a double standard, which I've never witnessed, it doesn't change the violation nor is it the umpires's responsibity to rectifying it.

    Williams owes Osaka a HUGE apology. Williams knew the rules of the game and just lost it...shame on her!

    Whoopee.... This wouldnt happen to Nadal because he is a gentleman.... he doesnt throw diva, hissy fit tantrums. Osaka was brilliant... end of story. It speaks volumes about the lack of respect for Authority in these times. Be it the police, Teachers or Tennis Umpires.

    Williams remarks to the MALE umpire were sexist in the EXTREME. She should have to go before the tennis tribunal for these remarks.
