Serena Williams of the United States of America talks to chair umpire after a code violation for coaching while playing Naomi Osaka of Japan in the women's final on day thirteen of the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
"King tweeted, When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalized for it".
"It could never have been directed at a male player", exploded Williams afterwards and echo again on CNN TV - yet John McEnroe was in fact disqualified from the Australian Open in 1990 for his behaviour in a fourth round game against Sweden's Mikael Pernfors, while the disgraced 36-year-old icon of women's tennis was penalised one game only in accordance with the entrenched rules of the tournament.
Andrew Castle says Serena Williams got what she deserved after our outburst in the US Open final.
This includes $4,000 for a coaching violation, $3,000 for slamming her racket and $10,000 for the supposed "verbal abuse". Nobody has ever seen anything like it: An umpire so wrecked a big occasion that both players, Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams alike, wound up distraught with tears streaming down their faces during the trophy presentation and an incensed crowd screamed boos at the court.
And this is her first Grand Slam... But I don't see things as Mr Simon does. Tough thing for a chair umpire to deal with, as well.
Navratilova spoke to The New York Times, praising Williams for her message of inequality but criticizing the context in which she made her argument. "It should've ended right there with the point warning, but Serena just couldn't let it go". I really felt for her yesterday. This year, though she's never won a title in the WTA Indian Wells tournament before, she managed to sweep every match, effectively beating out former no. 1 players Maria Sharapova and Karolína Plíšková, as well as current top dog, Simona Halep. Mari, who suffered an injury early in her career, is now ranked 367 by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA). A line could have been drawn, but when you look at Carlos in this situation, it's a judgment call to give that last penalty because she called him a thief.
With all that, ESPN's telecast of the US Open Women's Championship, in which Osaka topped her childhood idol Williams 6-2, 6-4, posted a 2.5 rating for the match itself and a 2.4 for the full three-hour telecast. Thank you, @serenawilliams, for calling out this double standard.
Simon backed the claims and added: "There's no equality when it comes to what the men are doing to the chair umpires and what the women are doing".
"Just maybe changed - not maybe, but he did change the course of the match", Djokovic said.
"It was really weird for me the whole experience", said Osaka, who rose to a career-high ranking of world No 7 following her win over Williams.
Hours later, the men left the United Kingdom on a flight from Heathrow to Moscow - two days after they had arrived at Gatwick. In her proclamation, Mrs May said: "The GRU is a highly-disciplined organisation with a well-established chain of command".
