Czech Tennis Star Calls Serena Willams' U.S. Open Meltdown 'Bulls***'

Serena Williams' claims that she was punished more harshly during her US Open umpire row because she is female have been described as "far-fetched" by Jamie Murray. Williams received warnings for receiving coaching and breaking a racket, before she was docked a game for calling Ramos a "thief".

Under the headline "Welcome to PC world", the paper said: "If the self-appointed censors of Mark Knight get their way on his Serena Williams cartoon, our new politically correct life will be very tiresome indeed".

Serena Williams gestures towards chair umpire Carlos Ramos as she plays Naomi Osaka of Japan during the women's final.

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.

But other than that, if you were talking about my tennis, I think my tennis is very, not very Japanese", Osaka said Wednesday.

The CEO of USTA, the governing body of tennis in the USA, was asked if she believes female players are held to different standards than men.

However, an American professor revealed why the U.S. reacted so angrily to the cartoon and why Knight missed the point.

Clay Travis heavily refutes Serena's claims and called out the media for openly accepting and promoting extremely delicate and inflammable accusations that immorally stir up the worst parts of our society, especially when baseless in nature.

Osaka was portrayed as petite and feminine with jet blonde straight hair-in real life she has dark curly hair with blonde streaks and is taller than Williams.

"I'm just focusing on this tie and working again".

The controversial Serena Williams "angry baby" cartoon has been republished by The Herald Sun. The world has gone insane, ' Knight declared during an interview with The Herald Sun.

"I've always thought Kei (Nishikori) was a super good role model and hopefully I can be that too", she said. Williams later smashed her racquet, resulting in a code violation and a point deduction, which she argued over with Ramos.

"It's not something that I have to think about".

Williams was unhappy at the violation call and complained to Ramos she hadn't taken any signals. "Because I feel like since it was my first final, and it was my first Grand Slam victory, overall I felt really happy and I know that I accomplished a lot". "It's because I am a woman, and that's not right".
