Naomi Osaka Reveals What Serena Williams Told Her After Winning US Open

Naomi Osaka Reveals What Serena Williams Told Her After Winning US Open

Williams called Ramos a "liar" and a "thief" on court, for which she was punished, and accused him of sexism in a post-match press conference. You are the best player at the end of this event and because of the turn of events with the crowd and the booing and everything, it wasn't the way - that was the outcome I was referring to.

Williams received warnings for receiving coaching and breaking a racket, before she was docked a game for calling Ramos a "thief".

The WTA and USTA appeared to support Williams after her outbursts in a 6-2, 6-4 loss to Naomi Osaka.

Carlos Ramos, the chair umpire who penalized Serena Williams during the women's U.S. Open Final last week, has finally spoken out about the incident. She said on Tuesday both sides shared the blame for the incident.

According to reports, she's agreed to an endorsement deal with Adidas that will pay her $8.5 million per year, which would be the richest deal in women's tennis. "It made me feel like it was a sexist remark", she told reporters on Saturday. "I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff. I just never knew when". Everyone who has experienced discrimination can empathise with her passionate plea.

In the wake of Osaka's first Grand Slam triumph, there were messages of support for Williams as well as those condemning her behaviour and agreeing with the umpire's calls.

Strycova also claims that Williams, along with sister Venus, always gets on-court coaching. She was called emotional, her rage labelled a meltdown, a tantrum. Critics say his exaggerated depiction of Williams's physical features is reminiscent of historically racist cartoons and that he white washed the appearance of Japan's Osaka by drawing her with a blonde ponytail. We shouldn't have to carry that extra weight on our back in anything that we do.

"I don't understand from where he's coming with that statement", said Djokovic, suggesting this was the first he has heard of umpires failing to treat men and women equally. As society becomes more attuned to the world's systemic injustices - the ones that hold athletes like Williams to a different standard - those three words start to sound a lot more like a tool to suppress the voices of the unheard. "We have to treat each other fairly and the same".

When the rules of the game are set by archaic institutions and tangerine tyrants, sometimes all you can do is speak out and hope it will lead to change.
