What Serena Williams told Naomi Osaka at peak of US Open madness

What Serena Williams told Naomi Osaka at peak of US Open madness

"At the end of the day, Serena could have handled it a little bit differently", Adams said.

The front page also features cartoons of other of well-known figures, including Donald Trump, claiming they would all also be banned, with the headline "Welcome to the PC world".

The Washington Post ran a searing post about Knight's cartoon, calling it "racist" and reminiscent of the era of racial segregation in the United States. They took it away from Serena - she had chance to come back.

In response many tennis commentators called his ruling sexist, noting that male players insult umpires, including Santos, on a routine basis without the punishment of losing games.

Jordan added, "Keep being great, everybody's watching out - me too". This is not the first time she has been in trouble for her interactions with officials.

Herald Sun editor Damon Johnston also jumped to Knight's defence, saying in a tweet that the cartoon "rightly mocks poor behaviour by a tennis legend".

The cartoon took away from the original scandal that erupted around Williams' behaviour during the most recent US Open women's final.

The Herald Sun has hit out at those who criticised Mark Knight's drawing, which shows Williams jumping over a broken racquet next to a baby's dummy.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Osaka revealed what Williams told her on stage that night.

"Ramos is tough, one of the best umpires in the world", Strycova said.

"I think the umpire, he did what was within his rights".

It is well known that Williams is one of Osaka's idols but she's now opened up on how she narrowly avoided bumping into another of her heroes at the US Open.

A group of umpires are reportedly considering boycott action against Serena Williams, according to an anonymous source in The Times.

"I'm fine, given the circumstances", he said.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) is the governing organization for international tennis. "Mr. Ramos' decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules and were re-affirmed by the U.S. Open's decision to fine Serena Williams for the three offenses".

The 2018 National Basketball Association rookie of the year tweeted: "To disrespect Serena Williams, a 23 time Grand Slam Champion, in this light is truly disappointing".

Following the match Williams cited sexism as the reason for her punishment, claiming that she had been treated more harshly than a man would have been.
