Steph Curry on Serena Williams: ‘You’re going to have reactions

Are there different standards for men and women in tennis? The USTA head says

Are there different standards for men and women in tennis? The USTA head says "yes"

It is bad enough that a star of Williams stature exploded in such a politically charged rant at the judge, but what hurt the judges even more is that both the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) came to Williams' support on her charges against the judge. You may have seen it on your favourite athlete's Instagram comments, under a Facebook post from that news organisation you love to hate, or in the deepest recesses of Reddit message boards. "I'm all about gender equality and I think when you look at that situation these are conversations that will be imposed in the next weeks".

It was business as usual until the second set when, per CBS Sports, "Williams was given a warning from Ramos after the umpire determined her coach was attempting to instruct her using hand signals, which results in code violation".

That anger would later cost her the game, and ultimately the match - although Osaka was clearly the better player on the night and would've probably taken out the match regardless.

The last certainly has not been heard over US Open ladies final outburst as Umpires are considering boycotting Serena Williams' future games.

'I have definitely been thinking about if little kids were watching and they wanted to play tennis too, ' she said.

According to the source, umpires are reportedly discussing the option of refusing match assignments that involve Williams until she apologises to Ramos for calling him a "liar" and "thief". Osaka also named Williams as one of her idols and understandably was very happy to have the 23-time Grand Slam champion's blessing despite the controversial outcome.


"I find it interesting that she did it only when she was losing".

Strycova also claims that Williams, along with sister Venus, always gets on-court coaching.

"Serena Williams decides she's gonna blame sexism for the way she was treated and then the media applauds her?" He's never took a game from a man because they said thief.

That's a kind gesture from Williams, considering Osaka later admitted she thought the crowd was booing her because it wanted Williams to win instead.

Under the terms of their contracts, umpires - who are employed by grand slams and men's and women's tours - are not allowed to speak out publicly. Yet again, it was a privileged group trying to minimise a voice, attempting to keep politics out of sport at all costs. "More voices are needed to do the same". Williams chose not to stay silent in the face of what she, and many others, deemed to be unfair treatment.
