She was one of the main reasons that tennis made a decision to investigate video replay technology on the courts after several bad calls went against her in the 2004 US Open quarterfinals, she has been described as "scary" to look at by the president of the Russian Tennis Federation, she has been handed penalties that wouldn't otherwise have been given to men.
In the fallout of the incident, the U.S. Tennis Association and Women's Tennis Association both came out in support of Williams.
It defended Ramos in a statement on Monday: "Carlos Ramos is one of the most experienced and respected umpires in tennis". Will rules change in Serena's matches? "She's passionate. She was speaking out and I think for Ramos, he was a little defensive at that point, and was fed up as opposed to saying, 'Okay, let's get back to business, '" Adams said.
"Don't you worry about me!" he added.
When the violation was announced Williams approached Ramos to insist she never takes coaching and would rather lose than "cheat to win". After a few points didn't go her way, Williams broke her racket in frustration, which was deemed to be a second infraction by Ramos, costing her a point.

In becoming her country's first ever Grand Slam singles champion, Osaka, the daughter of a Haitian father and Japanese mother, is also helping break new ground in Japan as her biracial identity challenges the country's self-image as a racially homogenous society.
Williams, who was under the impression the first violation had been rescinded, returned to Ramos to seek an apology for saying she had received coaching earlier. Umpires are discussing whether they could take action to stand up for their profession. "But I'm going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equal [treatment]".
The move could be smart business from Adidas, pitting the younger Osaka against the 36-year-old Williams, who is one of the most prominent faces of rivals Nike, and who will have no doubt lost some public favor after her shocking outburst during their match.
