Chair umpire Carlos Ramos, left, talks with referee Brian Earley as Serena Williams talks with Donna Kelso during the women's final of the U.S. Open tennis tournament against Naomi Osaka, of Japan, Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, in NY.

Ramos has been accused of specifically targeting Williams for the coaching violation, although the Portuguese umpire has a reputation of being a strict enforcer of the rules.

Meanwhile, tennis umpires are also considering forming a union as they feel no one is standing up for them.

Ramos cited Williams three times Saturday during her loss against Naomi Osaka. She angrily called Ramos a "thief," pointed out that she has never cheated, mentioned how she tries to set an example for her daughter and demanded an apology.

According to The Times of London, tennis' top umpires are considering a boycott of future matches involving Williams.

Latest numbers from the Shasta-Trinity National Forest show the fire has now burned approximately 22,000 acres of land and is still 0 percent contained.

Ramos is deemed one of the more experienced umpires in the game with nearly 30 years of experience but for overseeing the Grand Slam final he received a fee of just £370 - a standard daily rate.

Williams' claims of sexism were backed by the governing body of women's tennis, the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), whose chief executive said the umpire had shown the 36-year-old a different level of tolerance than if she had been a man. "At the time, I did. think that they were booing at me".

Umpires are reportedly "disturbed" by the response from Williams, and league officials who publicly supported her.

"There's no one more experienced, no one more knowledgeable, no one more capable as an umpire than Carlos Ramos".

In response to criticism from United States media and on social media channels, Herald Sun editor Damon Johnston said, "A champion tennis player had a mega tantrum on the world stage, and Mark's cartoon depicted that".

The verbal abuse violation came after Williams took shots at him, calling him a "liar" and a "thief".

Williams was fined $17,000, which is deducted from her prize money of $1.85 million as the tournament's runner-up.

Osaka had been composed on the court but became clearly emotional after winning, and pulled her visor over her face as Williams put a comforting arm around her.

U.S. Tennis Association President Katrina Adams issued a statement praising Williams as a "true champion" on Saturday and told "CBS This Morning" Tuesday that she believes there is a double standard when it comes to how female and male tennis players are treated.

He is still set to officiate a Davis Cup match this Friday between the USA and Croatia.
