Serena Williams husband calls out New York Times for report on tennis fines

It makes you long for the days of real queens of the tennis court such as Chris Evert and Sue Barker. She ruined what should have been the best day in the life of Naomi Osaka, the well-deserved victor. A very tearful Ms. Williams went on to thank her team and the crowd, she noted how tough it's been at the U.S. Open for her. People have a problem with her outfits, her body type and even the fact that she is not afraid to speak her mind, all of which have nothing to do with her game.
As he later admitted, Coach Patrick Mouratoglou was definitely signaling her to get to the net, and Serena was doing it, with some success. Ramos penalized her a game for this, her third infraction.
Artists of various ethnicities and genders had been posting sketches online they have created of Ms. Williams to rebuff the gross, racist depiction and to display her true beauty. It is his job to call the shots as he sees them.
Williams' first code violation in the Osaka match was for coaching which women have received 152 fines compared to 87 for men during the 20 years.
It was deeply upsetting to see that the cracks in Williams' racket were nearly as big as the chip on her shoulder. "I don't cheat! I didn't get coaching. You owe me an apology". A former great, Boris Becker in his column in a newspaper, felt Ramos should not have gone so closely with the rule book while agreeing that Serena did not do her cause any good with her outburst. "For me, it blows my mind". Williams already had one warning for racquet abuse, the first call. The loss of the game had nothing to do Williams' sex and everything to do with her behavior.
However, Ramos is not the only official to feel the wrath of a losing Williams, just ask Shino Tsurubuchi.

At this year's US Open alone, only 22 code violations were issued to women, while 86 were issued to men. Between games, Serena couldn't let it go - demanding an apology, threatening to ban Ramos from the court, ordering him to talk now and to shut up then, calling him a liar and, finally, a thief. In her post-match presser, Williams went a step further and accused Ramos of unfair treatement because she was a woman.
We must not forget this is a pattern for Williams, who famously threatened a female line judge and lost a point during her 2009 U.S. Open semifinal match versus Kim Clijsters.
Her statements were a siren song for the media's perpetual victimhood narrative of modern day feminism.
After the coaching violation, Serena bounced back to the tune of 3-1 lead in the second set, only to have Osaka gain a game by breaking her serve. This was a huge failure on Serena Williams' part.
"I think in any sport, you know, in tennis you might have an umpire that looks more into giving coaching violations, another guy goes more into time violation, another guy knows this guy misbehaves quite often so I'll give him a warning quicker, or I'll be more lenient with the guy because actually he's a nice guy, he just can not control himself". Serena later claimed she never saw them.
"The incident led to scores of Williams" supporters coming to her defence but also to widespread criticism, especially on social media, of the 23-time Grand Slam victor.
She argued that ultimately, the problem is a lack of respect and discomfort anytime a Black person, particularly a person who clearly is Black in all appearances, threatens to become the standard by which everyone else in a category is measured.
The state "needs a senator who will work with the president where we can and stand up to him where we must", O'Rourke said. Of course, ridiculing O'Rourke for his name is a bold move for a man christened Rafael and makes Cruz seem a touch mean.
