Serena Williams, Espn, Naomi Osaka discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show


You're listening to the Stephen, a Smith show podcast. It eight say ESPN. It's edited seven to nine, three, seven, seven, six. We'll get back to the phone calls. Thanks again, a great to the one and only Ryan clock for coming on a show on breaking down all the things that he broke down to us about Monday night football and what transpired last night, what transpired over the weekend, etc, etc. So I look forward to getting your calls here in what you have to say about anything that he's had to see in that regard. Another story that's percolating chair umpire and other officials in the world of tennis are shaken by what they perceive as a lack of official support for cheer on pyre Kalos Ramose given that his actions against arena Williams during Saturday's US open. Women's final were well within the rules. Quote, the unpire fraternity is thoroughly disturbed being abandoned by the WTA Richard Inge in I n g s that's how you spell that name. A retired elite gold badge umpire told ESPN dot com. On Tuesday, they are all fearful that they could be the. Next Ramose they feel that no one has their back when they have to make unpopular calls for those of you living under a rock Ramos, sided Williams, three times Saturday during her six, two, six, four laws against Naomi Osaka forgetting coaching signals for breaking Haracic which caused her appoint a Calling Ramos thief, which cost her game. The incident has sparked heated reactions from former and current players to celebrities to the officials themselves. The times of London reported Tuesday quote, there was a growing consensus that I'm Pires were not supported by the US on several occasions, and their Ramose was thrown to the wolves for simply doing his job and was not willing to be abused for it. If you don't, if you haven't heard him. Opposition is very simple. Carlos Ramos was a bit excessive. I think there's a level of reverence and deference that should be according to the great Serena Williams, all the she's done for tennis, all of compliments, etc. Etc. To the point where he could have issued a warnings before costing her game and confiscating confiscating a game and appoint. Having said all of that, I don't condone the actions of Serena Williams. She doesn't get to be completely absolved in all of this. She added temper tantrum, Naomi Osaka was giving her the business. Let's be clear about that. And I think she would have won anyway. But more importantly than that, Serena Williams argument about sexism, I didn't think was applicable grandma's call them whatever you want, help some people. I call them a prick. Here's the reality. He was that way towards amend to as joke of which ever ask Raphael and adul- ask Andy Murray. He has a history of being a hard, you know, what would men and women. So it's not that Serena was wrong for being disturbed by him. She was wrong in my opinion to make it a women's issue because it gave the impression that it's something that he wouldn't do to men when in fact. There are plenty of men that have had problems with him as well. That's all I'm saying about that. Other than that, you know, she Serena Williams. He's everything tennis to women's tennis. I think he should have been treated with far more respect than she was given. That's just me at eight, say ESPN inundate seven to nine, three, seven, seven, six back to the phones we go. Let's go. To Matthew, you lava Stephen, they talk to me. Big man, big fan. I got a question about the things..
