Male tennis players are punished more than women

Male tennis players are punished more than women

"In comparison, I never saw (Rafael) Nadal shouting like that with an umpire".

"But the way she handled it post-match with how eloquently she put her sentiments around gender equality in her sport and created the conversation we can all assess for ourselves". How dare you insinuate that I was cheating?

Those double standards and discrimination is something Williams has experienced her entire career, despite possibly being the best tennis player to ever play the game. And for me to say "thief" and for him to take a game? "The WTA defense surprised me". If it was wrong, it should prompt a discussion about what needs to be changed in either the rules or the interpretation of the rules to reduce officiating errors.

"For me I don't feel sad because I wouldn't even know what I'm expected to feel", said Osaka, who has climbed from 19th to seventh in the new world rankings.

Naomi Osaka has revealed Serena Williams told her she was proud of her after she claimed the US Open title, Sporting News AU reports.

During and after the match, Williams pointed to sexism as part of the reason why she was given the three code violations that led to the significant penalties.

She got into a heated row with umpire Carlos Ramos, after resenting a violation for being coached which her coach later admitted before accusing him of treating her differently to male players. Her runner-up prize money totaled $1.85 million.

"Do you know how many other men do things that are much worse than that?" This is not fair.

"This is a bulls**t, for umpires being women or men doesn't matter", said the world No 25.

But the International Tennis Federation defended Ramos and said in a statement that his "decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules" and that he "acted at all times with professionalism and integrity". A pleaser. I keep thinking about what Claudia Rankine wrote about Ms. Williams in a 2015 article for The New York Times: "Once recognized, black excellence is then supposed to perform with good manners and forgiveness in the face of any racist slights or attacks".

"I think tennis has an issue around this sort of behaviour, both men and women should pull their heads in, but Serena makes some excellent points that tennis needs to take into account".

"I think the umpire did what was within his rights", Murray told BBC Sport on Thursday ahead of the U.K.'s Davis Cup.
