Judge Carlos Ramos, who worked at the final match of the US Open, said, what he felt after the conflict with Serena Williams. The words of the referee conveyed Portugal’s Tribuna Expresso.
“Don’t worry about me, I’m fine, despite all this situation. This is a very delicate situation, but judging “by choice” does not exist. Don’t worry,” – said Ramos.
During the game, which took place on September 8, Williams was punished by Ramos for tips from the coach. In an attempt to convince the referee that she did not violate the rules, the American came into conflict with him, and later called him the thief and accused of sexism. In the end, she was charged a point and lost in the game to Japanese Naomi Osaka with a score of 2:6, 4: 6.
After that it was reported that tennis judges could boycott matches with the American athlete. They also thought about creating a Union to protect their rights.
