Tennis umpires consider boycotting Serena Williams matches | Daily Mail Online

"Professional tennis umpires have said they are 'disturbed' by the lack of governing body support for the chair umpire who drew the ire of Serena Williams, and may even consider unionizing and boycotting future Williams matches.", "Williams immediately blamed the calls on 'sexism', and umpires are concerned that league officials seemed to support that claim rather than back up Ramos for doing his job.", "One source familiar with the discussions, said: 'Umpires don’t have any independent means of representation and are employed by the governing bodies.", "While unable to comment specifically on the Williams incident, he said: 'It's a delicate situation."

'Several umpires are privately pushing for an officials’ union, the newspaper reported. '
