New York - Novak Djokovic says he thinks the chair umpire
interfered too much in Serena Williams' match but stopped short of saying men
and women are treated differently.
Djokovic says Carlos Ramos "just maybe changed - not
maybe, but he did change the course of the match" in Williams' 6-2, 6-4
loss to Naomi Osaka on Saturday night in the US Open final.
Djokovic, who won the men's title, said he thought Ramos'
involvement was "unnecessary."
But he disagreed with WTA CEO Steve Simon, who said men and
women should be treated equally but that wasn't the case Saturday.
"I don't see things as Mr. Simon does," Djokovic
says, adding that "it's hard to generalise things, really."
