Stop Saying that Serena Williams is a 'Victim'

Stop Saying that Serena Williams is a 'Victim'

Williams, who lost the final to Naomi Osaka on Saturday, received warnings from Ramos for coaching and breaking a racket before being docked a game for calling the umpire a "thief". Will rules change in Serena's matches? There's a lot of men out here who have said a lot of things.

Ramos was unperturbed, and Williams' rage continued: she was soon given a point penalty for smashing and making bits of her racket.

It has been suggested the umpire penalised Serena not for her misdemeanour in the court, but because he could not take such kind of dress-down from a woman.

The No1-ranked female tennis player has dominated sport columns in the last week after she unleashed a scathing tirade on umpire Carlos Ramos during her loss to Naomi Osaka.

Tennis icon Billie Jean King said she believes tennis applies a double standard to women compared with men, and that a similar outburst by a male player would have drawn no repercussions.

"I think for this year my immediate goal would be to get to Singapore", said Osaka after putting herself firmly in contention to reach the season-ending WTA Finals.

I agree that Serena Williams displayed unbecoming behaviour during the U.S. Open final.

"I couldn't tell what was going on, because it was just so loud in there", she added. Osaka will appear in global promotions and advertising for the Yokohama, Japan-based carmaker, which will support her as a tennis player, the company said Thursday in a statement.

"I didn't know Ramos was sitting in the chair".

Williams also was asked about what O'Hagan termed "epic comebacks" during her 20-year tennis career, including having a baby a little more than a year ago.

Williams smashed her racquet, breaking it, bringing about her second violation for racquet abuse, resulting in a point penalty. "That's all I can say", Ramos told The Associated Press before the opening singles between Borna Coric and Steve Johnson, which he did not officiate. "At the time, I did. think that they were booing at me".

Serena Williams yells at umpire Carlos Ramos during her Women's Singles finals match in New York City on September 8, 2018. In fact, this is the sort of behaviour that nobody should be engaging in on the court.

Those figures, obtained by The New York Times, show that from 1998 to 2018 at the four Grand Slam events, men have been fined for misbehavior with much more frequency than women with one significant exception: coaching violations.
