Serena Williams, Carlos Ramos, Tennis discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And for all kinds of stuff in for me to say thief in firm to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark. I mean, like how he's never took a game from a man because they said fees. For me, it blows my mind. I just feel like the fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions and want to express themselves and they wanna be a strong woman and they're going to be allowed to do that because today maybe didn't work out for me, but it's going to work out for the next person. Lot allot unpack here, Marcellus shale. I think there's enough blame to go around for everybody. I think that you know, always say about officials, particularly in the biggest games, let the people on the court decided don't no one's there to see the chair umpire or the referee and basketball. And so I agree with the people that say, Carlos Ramos, overreacted in did too much. Also agree with the people though this say, there's a way to handle adversity and Serena didn't handle it well and created a international incident. And it's something that overshadowed this young woman from Japan at twenty years old, winning her first major that Serena's handling of the unpire overshadowed a great moment in a great victory. Serena was getting beat. She got beaten. The first set got her, but we're pretty good. And I think that. The frustration just blew up into an incident, and I see blame on both sides of, but I'll stop there and continue yet turns of layers to this story right here as you said the blame. Hi, everybody getting a piece in that respect. The moment of altercation with an official is not necessarily the time to have the trial. You know, in that moment, we apply that to other fastest of life as well. But the thing that I do support which Serena and what she was saying is she was trying to make a distinction between being graded on standard or being graded on a curve because if she's looking at it like there's a double standard here because if we're just saying, hey, no one talks to the fficials that's man and woman. If we're saying, hey, you can't talk to the fficials and you can have energy passion. You can go there on official. Then if that's the standard would did I do wrong, but. If you're grading on a curve, which is like, oh, men get away with certain things. And we saw it example it in the clothing change were points assessed as penalty to a woman who making a clothing change, but to a man, he's not assessed the same penalty. So I understand where she's coming from the hypocrisy have boiled over to her to the point where she wanted to take issue. I get it, but I also think it's a know your personnel. You're a student of the game. Carlos Ramos's reputation is well document. I'm not a tennis expert. I'm someone that watches Serena Williams matches and ignores the rest of tennis. And I think a lot of people discussing this are just like me. We watch tennis when Serena's playing, yeah, and we ignore the rest of tennis. And so I think a lot of our opinions are ill informed and so and then when I see people are they actually doing the homework and the research. This referee this on Pires reputation. Well, established with men. Raphael and Adele quoted a couple years ago, feeling like this ref of this umpire headed in for him and his picked on him quoted New York Times everywhere. Talking about this particular umpire, this particular zone pyre is he's got a quick whistle, or you know, he will penalize you more quickly than any place else. And so we're where I blame Serena's like, well, you got the first warning and that was the inappropriate warning for the coaching wherever you know, everybody, the coaching warning he made was doing too much, but it's like when a referee gives you a bad technical in an NBA game, and you know what now I gotta be real extra careful because if I get a second one, I'm tossed out of the game. So once she got the bad technical, yellowcard foul, whatever you can't break your racket because you can't slam your wrecking and break your record because the ref now based on. The rules has no choice, but to assess a second penalty and that a second penalty is the loss of point all..
