Ramos will umpire Croatia v United States of America in the Davis Cup this weekend and ahead of that tie, U.S. men's captain Jim Courier told the Associated Press news agency: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicised". Advertising and sponsorship specialists predict a lot of such opportunities lie ahead for Osaka, who was born in Japan to a Haitian father and a Japanese mother and raised mostly in the U.S.

Murray won the US Open mixed doubles with partner Bethanie Mattek-Sands on Saturday, but it was the events of the women's final later that day that garnered most of the headlines, with Williams branding umpire Carlos Ramos as a "liar" and "thief" after being penalised for coaching during her loss to Naomi Osaka.

"I felt like at the very beginning he blew it", King said.

She added: "He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief.' For me, it blows my mind". "That's just part of the sport". "The way Serena handled the situation, I think she handled it with such grace and class". A USTA spokesman said Adams was not speaking to media, while Ramos was not available for questions.

Ings once issued a warning, point penalty and a game penalty against McEnroe at the 1987 US Open for obscenities directed at the umpire. "Will the rules change in Serena's matches?".

Williams, who was under the impression the first violation had been rescinded, returned to Ramos to seek an apology for saying she had received coaching earlier. A short time later, she smashed her racket in frustration and was docked a point. It isn't and, as a result, a player was penalized for the action of her coach. Herald Sun cartoonist Mark Knight is being called a racist and sexist for his portrayal of Williams, showing her stomping on the court in the manner of a toddler in the throws of a temper tantrum. "Don't worry about me". He called it "an unhappy situation" and said he followed the rules of tennis.

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

The Serena Williams controversy has stirred resentment among tennis umpires ― and they are considering a boycott of her future matches, according to reports.

The shy Osaka tweeted about the video on Thursday: "I always knew this would come back to haunt me". The 23-time Grand Slam victor was later fined $17,000 for her behavior.

Against Croatia, Johnson will face Borna Coric in Friday's opening singles match, followed by Cilic versus Davis Cup debutant Frances Tiafoe.
