Why Serena Williams is calling out sexism in tennis

Why Serena Williams is calling out sexism in tennis

"I don't cheat to win!" she said about the coaching violation. I know you were rooting for me but let's make this the best moment we can and we'll get through it and give credit where it's due and have no more booing. "He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief, '" Williams said at her news conference. "He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief, '" Williams said. She stood by calling Ramos a "thief", adding that she would continue to fight for women's equality.

Her long time coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, was spotted pushing both hands forward while looking at Williams, a motion commentators interpreted as telling Williams to approach the net more.

The 20-year-old tennis phenom Naomi Osaka took home the top prize at the U.S. Open Saturday night, following an intense match with tennis great Serena Williams. The multiple grand slam victor Victoria Azarenka said: "If it was a men's match, this wouldn't happen like this".

"When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalized for it". "When a man does the same, he's 'outspoken" and there are no repercussions". Osaka never let Williams' back-and-forth with Ramos distract her, never wavered from playing terrific tennis. "More voices are needed to do the same", she said.

Smashing her racket in the second set, frustration was all over Williams' face after she lost the first set to Naomi Osaka of Japan.

Ramos also called Nick Kyrgios for a code violation for yelling at a towel boy.

The deduction enraged Williams and she screamed at Ramos at the next changeover, drawing the game penalty after she called him a thief.

She says to Earley: "You know my character".

Fish said: "What a wild US Open for the Ref's".

Reconstruction Minister Jiro Akama told reporters that five people were believed to be buried in the town's Yoshino district. The utility explained that a coal-fired thermal plant in Atsuma, the largest in Hokkaido, was heavily damaged in the quake .

"Serena is a champion & doesn't deserve it - the same way that Naomi is a champion & doesn't deserve this atmosphere for her first GS title!" "That's the lesson I think we can all learn from this". You just can't act like that I'm afraid.

"In what was a blatantly racist and sexist move, tennis umpire Carlos Ramos unfairly penalized Serena Williams in an abhorrent display of male dominance and discrimination".

She resumed arguing with Ramos later, saying, "You stole a point from me".

An irate Williams, likely feeling the pressure given the match situation, approached Romas and accused him of insulting her character.

'The third one I was sitting and praying serena would stop and I'm not justifying what she said.

Osaka's power, speed and ability to shut out the distractions allowed her to prevail over Williams, but the match will long be remembered for the freaky turn it took during the second set when the 23-time Grand Slam champion unleashed a furious rant at chair umpire Carlos Ramos.

That's the challenge tennis player Serena Williams was recently faced.

When Osaka performs media duties with her own national press, she takes questions in Japanese but replies in English, apologising for not knowing the appropriate word when she does resort to her mother tongue.
