Sexism rears its ugly head at the U.S. Open

Serena Williams Fell To Naomi Osaka In A Tense US Open Final

FILE PHOTO: Serena Williams of the United States smashes her racket during the women's final against Naomi Osaka of Japan on day thirteen of the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in NY, U.S., September 8, 2018.

Serena Williams' behavior in Saturday's U.S. Open final divided the tennis world after she called the chair umpire a "liar" and a "thief" and said he treated her differently than male players during her loss to Naomi Osaka. "You're a thief." That led Ramos to sanction her for verbal abuse and penalize her a game.

Williams was looking to win her 24th Grand Slam singles title, which would have tied her with Australia's Margaret Court for the all-time record. She also called him "a thief" for "stealing a point" from her, and demanded an apology.

Osaka then admitted the whole thing was hard on both sides, saying: 'I know that everyone was cheering for her.

"You owe me an apology, I have never cheated in my life", Williams yelled.

King tweeted, "when a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it".

Former Australian netball captain Liz Ellis told Sports Sunday that Williams may have tarnished her legacy after her epic meltdown. In 2009 she was called for a foot fault on a second serve, giving Kim Clijsters a double match point in their semifinal match. "But I'm going to continue to fight for women". "I was like, 'Wow, this is not how I felt when I won my first Grand Slam.' I definitely don't want her to feel like that". Earlier in the match, Ramos handed down a warning for coaching following hand gestures from Williams' coach Patrick Mouratoglou.

She later accused him of sexism, saying: "He's never taken a game from a man because they said "thief".

Osaka ahead 15-love, Williams told Ramos he should have retracted the initial warning for coaching. "This is outrageous", said Williams, before leaving her press conference to applause. "I thought I did a really good job throughout all the matches, kind of putting that aside and just going out there and playing tennis".

"This is outrageous", said Williams warming to her theme.

Former US presidential advisor sentenced to 14 days in prison
George Papadopoulos , the former foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump's presidential campaign, has been sentenced to prison. The judge said there's no evidence Papadopolous had "any desire to aid Russian Federation in any way".

"I've said far worse", McEnroe, a seven-time Grand Slam singles victor, said on ESPN.

"I know she was frustrated by the way the game ended, but the way she took a step forward after the final and gave Naomi all the credit says a lot in her favour", she added. I'm not sure if they were happy tears or they were just sad tears, because of the moment.

The money comes out of the $1.85 million prize money as the runner-up.

Under Article III, Section P, "verbal abuse" is defined as "a statement about an official, opponent, sponsor, spectator or other person that implies dishonesty or is derogatory, insulting or otherwise abusive".

Meanwhile, Mouratoglou took to Twitter to also take aim at Ramos.

One thing that is certain is that Osaka's stock around the world, but particularly in Japan, will skyrocket.

"For all the tournaments, bar the Grand Slams, coaches can come onto the court at the change of ends to speak to their players".

Most of the sport's infamous brats have been men, and they have often been punished for bad behaviour.

"If they can't adhere to the rules then they will have to allow the coaching because we can't have things like this outburst anymore".
