Williams' behaviour divided the tennis world after she called the chair umpire a "liar" and a "thief" and said he treated her differently than male players during her loss to Naomi Osaka of Japan.

The US Open's women's finals on Saturday took a political turn when second place finisher Serena Williams went apoplectic over controversial calls against her by umpireCarlos Ramos, whom she absurdly smeared as a sexist.

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) and Women's Tennis Association (WTA), however, supported Williams' accusations that Ramos' actions were based in sexism. She said on Tuesday both sides shared the blame for the incident. On the contrary, he praised Williams for showing "grace and class" in a situation in which Naomi Osaka, the victor in two sets, was overshadowed.
