U.S. Open chair ump says that he is ‘fine’

LISBON, Portugal (AP) — The chair umpire who penalized Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final has spoken publicly for the first time since the match, saying he is “fine.”

Ramos, who is from Portugal, spoke briefly to Portuguese newspaper Tribuna Expresso this week.

“I’m fine, given the circumstances,” Ramos said, according to the newspaper. “It’s a delicate situation, but umpiring ‘a la carte’ doesn’t exist. Don’t worry about me.”

The newspaper said Ramos received hundreds of messages of support from family, colleagues, players and former players. He said he has avoided social media and only reads “balanced” articles about the incident. He also refrained from going out the day after the final to avoid problems, according to the report.

The International Tennis Federation has defended Ramos for his actions during the final. The U.S. Open fined Williams for her three code violations.

The WTA later called for equal treatment of all tennis players and coaching to be allowed across the sport.

Ramos has been assigned to officiate the Davis Cup semifinal matches between the United States and Croatia, a best-of-five series which begins Friday and ends Sunday in Zadar, Croatia.

Evans headlines Hoosiers’ 6-member Hall of Fame class

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Former Indiana basketball star Brian Evans and former football star Glenn Scolnik headline the university’s new Hall of Fame class.

Evans was named the Big Ten’s most valuable player in 1996 after averaging 21.2 points and 7.1 rebounds as a senior. He still ranks No. 12 all-time in school career scoring with 1,701 points.

Scolnik was the football team’s MVP in 1972 when he caught 53 passes for 72 yards and six touchdowns for coach John Pont. He also was an academic All-American that season and was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The other new inductees are former softball player Monica Armendarez, former women’s basketball star Rachelle Bostic, former wrestler Sam Komar and Ann Lawver, a former volleyball and softball coach.

The induction ceremony will be held Nov. 9.
