Osaka strikes it rich with another deal

039;Disturbed' umpires consider boycotting games forming union over Serena ‘sexism’ spat – report

But does this miss the point?

Barely a week after her infamous "meltdown" during the final of the US Open, Serena Williams made a decision to talk about her fashion business and motherhood, rather than the tennis court, as she spoke to a business trade group in Las Vegas.

Murray, however, told BBC Sport that Williams' accusations of sexism are "a bit far-fetched", adding: "I've seen a lot of people get called for coaching before, and you might have a grumble and stuff, but you get on with it". "That is not right".

The chair umpire, Mr Carlos Ramos, accused Serena of receiving coaching from her coach which is considered illegal in tennis tournaments.

As 2003 U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick wrote on Twitter, in reference to the Ramos and Lahyani episodes: "There needs to be some continuity in the future". That enraged Williams, and her reactions started the process by which Williams ended up losing a point and a game for racket abuse and verbal abuse, respectively.

We need to forget about it because Williams has achieved so much. There are two potential variables for which these numbers don't account.

Glowing media reports called her a new heroine for Japan.

"You know, before., I feel like a tennis player playing another tennis player, but when I hugged her at the net, I felt like a little girl again". YMMV, but if my impression ends up being correct, then the data provided by the NYT is an indication of something other than a double standard favoring women.

"It comes down to all the governing bodies getting into a room and sitting together to lead the sport into the right direction and that would take them to leave all their individual agendas to the side", he said to Wide World of Sports. If a woman tries to package herself as a driven and focused, the first question you ask her is "Who will marry you?". The biggest complaint in the Williams controversy was that Ramos called the third penalty - which cost Williams a game - for being called a "thief". This also requires subjective analysis and a lot more study, but it's at least possible that men are so badly behaved on court that judges have a higher threshold for calling penalties just to keep matches moving along.

None of this lets Williams off the hook.

nWilliams would've known the rules and realized that obliterating her Wilson Blade SW104 racket would cost her a point, having come after the warning she received for being coached. "For me it's just who I am", she said at the Nissan event.

She also moved to excuse Williams' behaviour during an interview with ESPN the following day when she suggested Williams would not have expected her outburst towards Ramos to have been captured on live TV.
