U.S. Open umpire focusing on 'working again,' not Serena controversy

U.S. Open umpire focusing on 'working again,' not Serena controversy

"In my head, sometimes I could become insane and the team couldn't be confident to call me into the team", Paire had said before his match.

"To get called in a Grand Slam final was perhaps a bit tight, but I think the reaction was pretty overboard".

Williams also pointed to an incident earlier in the tournament when French player Alize Cornet was charged with a code violation for switching her top around, which was back-to-front, on the court, while in the men's draw Novak Djokovic was photographed smiling with his shirt off in the very same tournament. He's never taken a game from a man because they said "thief". (Makes you wonder; why do you need a coach if you can't get coached on the court?). "If it was wrong or right, I'm not the judge", said Bryan, a doubles specialist.

"I don't cheat", Williams told the umpire chair, Carlos Ramos, as he gave her the first violation when she received coaching during the match. "But I'm going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equal [treatment]".

White tennis players berating umpires, smashing rackets, threatening officials, and even hitting umpires with balls can easily be found online.

Sadly, in what should have been a triumphant moment for Naomi Osaka-becoming the first U.S. Open victor from Japan-we got a playbook of leadership faults to learn from.

Maurizio Sarri fires warning to his players due to Napoli experience
Sarri said: "The last time I spoke with him he told me he wants to play for another season, but I don't know the situation". However, the Blues boss has revealed that, two days before the window slammed shut, Abraham had a change of heart.

Hurricane Florence kills at least three people
A storm surge of more than nine feet is expected to be caused from the hurricane, covering cars, street signs and homes. Friday, the hurricane was about 5 miles (55 km) east of Wilmington and was crawling at 6 mph (9 kmh).

The CEO of the Women's Tennis Association, Steve Simon, also issued a statement backing Williams on Sunday and said that his organization "believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men vs. women", while also adding they he did "not believe that this was done last night".

"I know Carlos, and I know he's not looking to put himself in a hard position".

"It's hard to say one side or the other without causing a big stir", Harrison said.

U.S. Open women's champion Naomi Osaka is back in Japan celebrating not only her landmark victory, but also a sponsorship deal with vehicle manufacturer Nissan.

Borna Coric won the opening singles 6-4 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 against Steven Johnson.

The victor will meet either France or Spain in the final. "Davis Cup is highly unpredictable and playing for your country can affect people in different ways, shapes and forms".
