SERENA WILLIAMS REACTION WAS PRETTY OVERBOARD SAYS JAMIE MURRAY AS HE DISMISSES UMPIRE SEXISM ROW.
Jamie Murray has rejected Serena Williams’ claim that women are treated differently by umpires than male players, with the doubles star claiming that her reaction was “pretty overboard”.Williams saw her hopes of tying Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam titles at last weekend’s US Open go up in smoke as she crashed to a straight-sets defeat by Japan’s Naomi Osaka, but it was the American’s furious bust-up with umpire Carlos Ramos that sparked the biggest controversy that has dominated the game ever since.
The 36-year-old accused Ramos of being a “liar” and a “thief” after he gave Williams three separate code violations for illegally receiving coaching, smashing her racket on the ground and verbally abusing a match official, which prompted one of the most extraordinary finishes to a match in Williams’ career as she was docked a game in the decisive second set.
LIVER POOL AND TOTTENHAM STARS WORTH CONSIDERING FOR GAMEWEEK 5 ARMBAND DESPITE THEIR MATCH UP.
Mohammed Salah (E13.0m) and Harry Kane(e12.5m) are set to fake a battle to overtake Sergio Aguero (E11.3m) as the no 1 candidate for the Gameweek5 Captaincy in fantasy premier league.
However, Salah and Kane’s records from the last season as shown that they should not be overlooked. Each as scored in both meetings between Tottenham hot spur and Liverpool, totaling three goals a piece’ Kane who delivered two goals and an assist in the 4-1 Wembley win over jurgen Klopp’s side maintaining his strong record against Liverpool.
While Salah has offered further encouragement for those considering him,his totals of 19 shots on the goal and 13 chances created, placed him among the top two players on both metrics. Aguero who has the most promising fixture, Manchester City facing Fullham at home,the favorite for the Gameweek5 captaincy disappointed May owners with just one assist at home to Newcastle united in Gameweek4. Should Aguero slip up again, those who opt for Salah or Kane stands a chance to benefit.
