Chair umpires took centre stage at Flushing Meadows this year, more than at any other tournament in recent memory, and culminated with Serena Williams being reduced to tears at her treatment in the women's final.
Count US Open men's champion Novak Djokovic among those who believe chair umpire Carlos Ramos went too far in issuing three rules violations against Serena Williams in the women's final.
Williams told the supervisor on court that she had received the penalty "because I'm a woman", suggesting a male player would not have been penalized for saying the same thing.
"It's an unhappy situation but "à la carte" refereeing doesn't exist".
Belarusian player Victoria Azarenka, commenting on the coaching issue, said it bothers her to have inconsistent rules.
London based newspaper, The Times reports that umpires have vowed to band together against Serena Williams for taking Carlos Ramos to task during the US Open finals after he accused the tennis phenom of cheating.

Keothavong said: "Yes, that is a valid point and I think sexism in tennis and across sport is also a valid point".
He said: "It's a delicate situation". "I think it's a matter of having a conversation with the two guys and saying let's cut it out, let's slow it down, and then perhaps not understanding how they can have the same conversation with the females". Later in the same set, Ramos cited her for breaking her racket in frustration, and when she called him a "thief" for the resulting penalty that cost her a point, he issued a third violation that cost her a game. Japan got its first Grand Slam champion in the form of Naomi Osaka, who played incredibly powerful and well-strategised tennis against Serena Williams.
