'She went too far': Fed serves ace to Williams


//

Roger Federer believes Serena Williams "went too far" with her controversial tirade aimed at umpire Carlos Ramos in her straight sets US Open final loss to Naomi Osaka. 

Williams drew the worlds gaze after accusing Ramos of sexism in an unbecoming on-court meltdown that domineered her 20-year-old opponent's first grand slam victory.

While initially maintaining an air of diplomacy, Federer has developed a more concrete stance as the fallout from the scenes begin to fade.

"I feel like Serena should have walked away," Federer told Britain's Sunday Times. 

"She did, but she went too far. She should have walked earlier."

However, Federer believed that Ramos perhaps should have taken a more considered approach in presiding over a heated grand slam final.

"The umpire maybe should not have pushed her there. It's unfortunate, but an incredible case study". 

That sentiment echoes a stance the Swiss Maestro has maintained from day one.

"I think what happened, obviously, there was mistakes along the way and there should be more discretion sometimes,” he said at the time.

"At the same time, they(umpires) have to do their job, that’s what we want them to do."

“It’s been tricky but a really interesting case study.”

Williams and Osaka will both travel to Melbourne for the Australian Open in January.
