Naomi Osaka "Not Sad" About Serena Controversy Overshadowing US Open Win

039;Disturbed' umpires consider boycotting games forming union over Serena ‘sexism’ spat – report

My friends will tell you how we utterly hate it when a man interrupts a women making a point, only to make the same point the woman was trying to make, what is now called "mansplaining".

Osaka, who is of Haitian and Japanese descent, became the first-ever Japanese-born Grand Slam champion with the win. After sparring with the chair umpire, Williams was given a one-game penalty late in the climactic second set, sealing the win for Osaka. She was called emotional, her rage labelled a meltdown, a tantrum. It was an infraction, whether Williams benefited from the coaching or not.

King later in the week slightly back peddled her comments, remarking that she thought Williams was "out of line" for her behaviour, but also criticised umpire Ramos, saying that "he blew it" and could have handled the situation better. You're a thief too.

The series of incidents had led to some of the most remarkable scenes in a Grand Slam final as Williams accused Ramos of being a "liar" and a "thief".

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) and Women's Tennis Association (WTA), however, supported Williams' accusations that Ramos' actions were based in sexism. The International Tennis Federation said the umpire had acted appropriately.

According to The Times of London, tennis' top umpires are considering a boycott of future matches involving Williams.

The debate on Williams treatment, others claimed, has got something to do with the color of her skin.

For Osaka, who four years ago took a selfie with Williams outside the same court, the notion that she was the opposing player handed an advantage by the umpire seemed to fill her with agony. Shes been called the N-word. She and her sister, Venus were called “The Williams Brothers” due to their male-like physiques and prowess on the court.

Serena, in fact, has been the target of racist messaging that she isnt welcome in the sport she dominates.

The biggest fine in which women were fined for more than men, coaching, is the one that Williams picked up her first penalty for during her loss to Naomi Osaka - which sparked the other two penalties. She didnt threaten, and she didnt curse.

U.S. Open women's champion Naomi Osaka is back in Japan celebrating not only her landmark victory, but also a sponsorship deal with vehicle manufacturer Nissan.

White tennis players berating umpires, smashing rackets, threatening officials, and even hitting umpires with balls can easily be found online. "If it was wrong or right, I'm not the judge", said Bryan, a doubles specialist.
