Serena Williams shouts

12, Sep 2018 By shakeel ahmad

Sports instruction does not allow any Tennis player to follow what has been defined as unacceptable in the match codebook. The rules are just right on purpose of maintaining the value of keeping a clean court at Arthur Ash stadium in New York.

However, the turn of occurrences in the final encounter of US Open Tennis Tournament belittled the vainness of rapport between the umpire and the player. The chair umpire Carlos Ramos warned Serena Williams for a code violation in regard to her coach’s instructive hint from the spectator’s box.

This objection caused Williams to make her blood boil and she branded the umpire a thief and liar. She also called tournament referee Brian Early to appear. Her reaction brought a game point to the Japanese sensation Naomi Osaka.

Angered with this unfavourable decision, the American tennis star enraged intensely at the umpire and could not stop herself saying: “It was not coaching. I do not cheat to win. I would rather lose. I just want you to know that.” Continuing further she added: “I understand why you might have thought that, but I do want you to know, I do not cheat. Thank you very much.”

Her furious volley in Ramos direction did not stop until she released her entire emotions. She pointed out: “You owe me an apology. You will never umpire on a court of mine as long as you live. You stole a point from me.”

Though the first set of the match ended in only 34 seconds, the second set brought an end of Williams’ expectation of winning 24th grand slam title equivalent to Margaret Court. The Japanese player won her first grand slam by defeating an unyielding strong opponent in the US Open tournament. Williams was handed a penalty point for breaking her racquet.
