Japanese carmaker Nissan cashes in on Naomi Osaka's US Open tennis victory

Japanese carmaker Nissan cashes in on Naomi Osaka's US Open tennis victory

William's match with 20-year-old Naomi Osaka of Japan was clouded with controversy after Ramos issued a code violation to Williams during play, saying she had received coaching during the match - a point Williams strongly denied. "Will the rules change in Serena's matches?".

"Anyone who has spent any time with any of the top women will know that they make those same sacrifices and are as determined and committed to winning as any of the top men on the tour", he added.

The Japanese player's breakthrough triumph in NY was overshadowed by an explosive row between her opponent Williams and umpire Carlos Ramos which resulted in the 23-times Grand Slam champion being docked a game and fined $17,000. One of the most spoken about athletes in the world at the moment, Osaka recently lifted her first Grand Slam at the US Open when she defeated Serena Williams in straight sets.

But the U.S. Tennis Association and Women's Tennis Association have come out in support of Williams, which has angered the umpire community.

The umpires are according to The Times considering to boycott future Serena Williams matches. That's partly because of a woman such as Serena Williams, who is willing to raise her voice - even if it's shaking.

"I know the way that I was brought up, people tell me I act kind of Japanese so I guess there is that".

"I've never been called for coaching, but the racket abuse, the verbal abuse, that's just part of the sport". When she smashed her racquet in frustration he cited her again, giving her a point penalty.

Williams was fined $17,000 for the rules violations, and the International Tennis Federation backed Ramos, saying his "decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules".

Ramos will umpire Croatia v U.S. in the Davis Cup this weekend and ahead of that tie, United States men's captain Jim Courier told the Associated Press news agency: "It's been polarized and in some ways politicised".

"There have been many times when I was playing that I wanted to break my racket into a thousand pieces", Navratilova wrote. Most of those criticisms - largely made by men - were valid, but they chose to ignore Williams' experience as a black woman.
