After few months of verbal confrontation with chair umpire Carlos Ramos, during US open Final, Legendary player Serena Williams in an interview said that she doesn’t “really remember” how the US Open final controversy unfolded.
Serena accused long-time umpire Ramos of discrimination and branded him “a liar,” “a thief” and “sexist,” after he gave her a code violation for receiving coaching. Later, her coach admitted to coaching from the stands as Serena was overpowered in the final in September.
The 37-year-old stated that, “I don’t really remember how it went, to be honest,” Williams said. “I’ve been purposely not thinking about it. I don’t watch TV at all. I try to keep myself in a bubble as much as I can. I just don’t want to be involved in other people’s opinions. Let them live how they want to feel.” “I’ve had a lot of things happen to me at the US Open,” she said. “I think about three or four different things. Especially in the later rounds. I think a person can be a little bit more sensitive to anything in that moment.
“You know, it becomes a trigger moment. When you go through a really extreme ordeal not once, not twice, not three times, it becomes a trigger moment,” she said.
