The whinings of Serena Williams and others about alleged "Sexism" are crap. there have been male tennis players who acted like brats, and were marked down accordingly, for decades:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McEnroehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Connorshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilie_N%C4%83staseMoreover, her opponent won fair and square and played a great game.
I agree too! I think the sexism stuff is bs, and it's really dangerous because it distracts/generalizes actual sexism. In my opinion, she was just a terrible sport who acted entitled. She got want she deserved.
Have an opinion?
Yess!! I believe that Naomi Osaka literally MADE history as the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam, and her big moment was overshadowed by this argument between Carlos Ramos (the umpire) and Serena Williams. First, Serena's coach fully admitted to coaching her; his "thumbs up" meant move towards the net. However, players do get coaching all the time, so it may be unfair, BUT NOT ON THE BASIS OF SEXISM. Carlos Ramos has given behavioral violations to both men and women, including Venus Williams, so this whole thing was not about sexism but about umpire preference. Along with this, Serena bringing up her daughter was unnecessary.Also, Serena handled it incorrectly. The correct tennis rules are to call over the referee if the player does not agree with the umpire. (P. S.: I do actually believe that it was unfair that the coach would give her a penalty for breaking her racket; multiple players have done it over time and not gotten any sort of conduct violation.)
Cheating, verbally abusing the umpire and then poor sportsmanship.i.kym-cdn.com/.../22a.jpg
She was being blatantly helped by her manager so she had no reason to complain
I didn't see the incident, but Serena Williams was playing against a woman who is of part Haitian heritage so I can't see how he was being racist or sexist.
