Williams was given three code violations by Portuguese official Carlos Ramos in her straight-set loss to Naomi Osaka of Japan on Saturday, with the American and critics arguing she wasn't treated the same as some male players.

However, Murray said he disagreed that umpires were more lenient towards men than women.

It is well known that Williams is one of Osaka's idols but she's now opened up on how she narrowly avoided bumping into another of her heroes at the US Open. She commented, "Me, as a woman, take a lot of warnings".

On Wednesday, Strycova lambasted those accusations and offered her own suggestion for the display as she went up against the Williams camp.

As the controversy rumbled on, Ramos spoke out to say that "a la carte arbitration does not exist", amid rumblings that umpires would boycott future matches involving Serena. Ramos is tough, one of the best umpires in the world.

"Because it was my first final and my first Grand Slam victory, overall I felt really happy and I know that I accomplished a lot".


The Japanese player's breakthrough triumph in NY was overshadowed by an explosive row between her opponent Serena Williams and umpire Carlos Ramos.

Williams doubled down after the match, believing that Ramos' docking her a game for verbal abuse was tantamount to sexism. "If it's like this, let me know", Strycova said. Navratilova said, "It wasn't the right time to bring it up", and that she would have expected to face similar penalties for acting as Williams did.

Osaka edged Coupe Rogers champion Simona Halep, US Open finalist Williams, and Western & Southern Open champion Kiki Bertens to top this month's ballot.

But the International Tennis Federation defended Ramos and said in a statement that his "decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules" and that he "acted at all times with professionalism and integrity".

"I think that's a bit far-fetched", the Briton, who is the older brother of former world number one Andy Murray, told BBC Sport.
