Tennis umpires are so displeased with the situation surrounding Serena Williams and Carlos Ramos that they are reportedly considering boycotting the American's matches in the future.

While Naomi Osaka won her first-ever Grand Slam and Novak Djokovic continued his career resurgence in Flushing Meadows, the major tennis headline of the weekend was the outburst from Williams who claimed Ramos was being sexist in his decision to give her three code violations during the women's singles final.

During the second set against Osaka, her coach Patrick Mouratoglou was (admittedly) attemping to coach her from the stands, which resulted in the first violation for the 36-year-old. Williams vehemently denied she received any coaching and later received a second violation for breaking her racquet in frustration, resulting in a point penalty as well.

She would then attack Ramos, demanding an apology and calling him a "thief" among other things before the experienced umpire gave her a third violation and a game penalty for verbal abuse.

Williams would go on to lose to Osaka and later accused Ramos of sexism after the match, citing how male players would not have been punished the same way for her conduct.

Both individuals received criticism for their actions in the final, especially considering how it affected Osaka during the trophy ceremony, though many also felt Ramos was simply doing his job.

The Women's Tennis Assocation (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) though, backed Williams' claims of sexism and according to the Times, this has further incensed some umpires:

"One anonymous official told The Times that there was a growing consensus that umpires were 'not supported' by the USTA on several occasions, and that Ramos was 'thrown to the wolves for simply doing his job and was not willing to be abused for it.'"

Certain umpires were also discussing how they can take action to stand up for their profession. The main suggestion being, refusing to umpire any match involving Williams until she gives Ramos an apology for vilifying him.

Ramos is said to have earned a sum of just around $484, a standard daily fee, for overseeing the final, and while he is still in good spirits, he is receiving far too much attention and scrutiny for just doing his job.

Unlike the WTA and USTA, the International Tennis Federation have come to his defense, stating all his decisions were in accordance with the rules.

WTA chief Steve Simon, known to pander to star players, sided with Williams as he believes men and women are treated differently.

Djokovic, who has a history with Ramos, felt the Portuguese did push Williams to the limit, but did not agree with Simon's assessment that there is sexism when it comes to player treatment.

"Look, I love Serena, first of all. I really felt for her yesterday," Djokovic said after his win over Juan Martin del Potro. "Tough thing for a chair umpire to deal with as well. We have to empathize with him. Everyone was in a very awkward situation [Saturday]. A lot of emotions. Serena was crying. Naomi was crying. It was really, really tough."

"But I have my personal opinion that maybe the chair umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit, especially in a Grand Slam final. Just maybe changed -- not maybe, but he did change the course of the match. [It] was, in my opinion, maybe unnecessary. We all go through our emotions, especially when you're fighting for a Grand Slam trophy."

"I don't see things as Mr Simon does. I really don't. I think men and women are, you know, treated in this way or the other way depending on the situation. It's hard to generalize things, really. I don't see it's necessary really to debate that," he added.
