Britain's Jamie Murray has rejected claims of men being treated more leniently than women by umpires.
US Open victor Naomi Osaka made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, and Ellen wasted no time in grilling the tennis champion on the controversial events that surrounded her final match, which saw her opponent Serena Williams being fined $17,000 for code violations after she was accused of illegal coaching, as well as breaking her racket and arguing with the referee. "The way Serena handled the situation, I think she handled it with such grace and class".
The 36-year-old had already had a point penalty for smashing her racquet and a code violation for coaching when she was penalised further for calling Ramos a "thief" and a "liar" in NY.
Osaka became the first Japanese player to win a women's singles Grand Slam.
But Osaka said her tastes veered towards Nissan's sports cars.
The International Tennis Federation, meanwhile, defended 47-year-old Ramos and said he acted "at all times with professionalism and integrity".
"Open champion and that's pretty dope".
"Coaching is common, a lot of people are doing it, some people aren't getting called for it".
"I think for this year my immediate goal would be to get to Singapore", said Osaka after putting herself firmly in contention to reach the season-ending WTA Finals. "But we have no doubt that Carlos was just enforcing the rules as he sees them". The brand is always challenging expectations, and I look forward to bringing its vision for driving excitement to new audiences around the world'.
The ugly incident reduced Osaka to tears, with NY fans launching into a continual chorus of boos after Williams demanded an apology from Ramos after he penalised her for being coached from the stands before branding him a "thief" for treating her differently to male players.
Naomi Osaka's trophy presentation at the 2018 U.S. Open was odd, to say the least.
