Steph Curry on Serena Williams: ‘You’re going to have reactions

Serena Williams of the United States argues with umpire Carlos Ramos during her Women's Singles finals match against Naomi Osaka of Japan on Day Thirteen of the 2018 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on September 8, 2018.

She stood, solemn, but shoulder to shoulder in Arthur Ashe Stadium with the only person to offer her solace - losing finalist Serena Williams, who had earlier screamed "you owe me an apology" at umpire Carlos Ramos for pulling her up for receiving coaching from the stands.

Ramos handed Williams with three code violations - the first for on-court coaching, the second for racket abuse and finally the game penalty for verbal abuse, after Williams call him "a liar" and "a thief".

The Women's Tennis Association made a similar argument, claiming that men and women professional tennis players are treated differently by umpires.

When asked about the behavior of Serena Williams at the US Open on Saturday, Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry came to the defense of his fellow superstar.

Tropical storm force winds and some rain bands will likely begin Wednesday night, regardless of the actual landfall of the storm. Henry McMaster declared a state of emergency Saturday to give his state time to prepare for the possible arrival of a hurricane.

The report also cited an anonymous source who said officials were considering a boycott of future matches involving Serena Williams.

"Yeah I think she was a spoiled brat", he said.

The Japanese woman also opened up about what she was thinking when Serena was melting down.

"It's tough, but with experience you understand how you can control your emotions and how you can stay focused on what the task at hand is and that's just winning basketball games and not letting anything get in the way of that", he told Omnisport.

Carlos Ramos sparked Williams' on-court outburst by giving her three code violations during her loss to Naomi Osaka on Saturday evening.

Novak Djokovic: The great comeback continues - US Open
Never was that more apparent than the game that stood out on this evening, with Djokovic serving while down 4-3 in the second set. The Argentine put his admiration aside Sunday and made it hard for Djokovic to gain an edge, despite the score of the first set.

Strike 3, a game penalty, was triggered after Williams confronted Ramos, repeatedly accusing him of being "a thief" for taking a point away from her. "This is an opportunity for us to get it right".

The 20-year-old is getting more accustomed to her new fame but she's still the same shy, giggly girl you saw win Indian Wells for her first career title and then beat Serena Williams in NY on Saturday.

USTA chief Katrina Adams said that men "are badgering the umpire on the changeovers and nothing happens". You are the U.S. Open champion.

"The umpiring fraternity is thoroughly disturbed at being abandoned by the WTA", retired umpire Richard Ings told ESPN.

But former British number one Annabel Croft didn't think Carlos Ramos was sexist, rather that he's a strict official "who takes nothing from any opponent whether they're male or female".

Meanwhile, tennis umpires are also considering forming a union as they feel no one is standing up for them. "Don't worry about me", Ramos said while speaking to Portuguese newspaper Tribuna Expresso, according to The Associated Press.
