Stunning figures undermine claims of 'sexism' in tennis

Stunning figures undermine claims of 'sexism' in tennis

"I've seen other men call other umpires several things", she said.

Serena Williams' claims that she was punished more harshly during her US Open umpire row because she is female have been described as "far-fetched" by Jamie Murray.

Others may be conditioned to look for mid-match support by the on-court coaching rule used at Women's Tennis Association tournaments, which allows a coach to visit his or her player at one changeover per set.

"There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials".

"Serena Williams decides she's gonna blame sexism for the way she was treated and then the media applauds her?"

Does the umpires threat to boycott Williams future games tantamount to saying that although most, if not all professional tennis players have had similar outbursts on the court, its this particular outbursts of the greatest tennis player of all time — a black woman — that are so damaging to their profession? "Will the rules change in Serena's matches?".

Naomi Osaka would go on to with the match in straight sets 6-2, 6-4.

"This week has been a dream come to life, and I'm so honored to represent Japan and Nissan on the world stage", Osaka said. It made me feel like it was a sexist remark.

Mouratoglou admitted afterwards that he had tried to coach Williams, who said she never saw the Frenchman's gestures.

At the same event Williams received two violations, men received 86 code violations while women received only 22 in total, reported The Telegraph. It was an infraction, whether Williams benefited from the coaching or not.

The Women's Tennis Association also backed Williams, with their CEO Steve Simon saying, "The WTA believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men versus women".

Osaka was born in Osaka, Japan, in 1997 to a Haitian-American father and a Japanese mother, before the family moved to the US when she was three.

As Williams fell apart, Osaka showed maturity by staying cool to close out her maiden Grand Slam title. Yet again, it was a privileged group trying to minimise a voice, attempting to keep politics out of sport at all costs. She decided, vehemently, not to stick to sports.
