Serena Williams Earned Per Second What Umpire Earned For Match
It was a match that made international headlines for Serena William's outburst to Umpire Carlos Ramos.
As pointed out by fellow Umpire Richard Ings the man on the receiving end of the rage earned about the same for his entire days work as Serena earned per second.
He got $450. She got $1.8 million.
For such a responsible role it seems absolutely paltry by comparison.
That's another subject that definitely needs debating.
Umpiring is so easy from the top of the grand stand.— Richard Ings (@ringsau) September 10, 2018
I can also confirm that Carlos Ramos earned his pay in that match. His pay? US$450 which is the daily rate all USTA umpires are paid. https://t.co/Uzn992GlhV
Ings himself wrote a piece in The Sydney Morning Herald actually calling for Williams to apologise to Ramos.
