Serena Williams

Great tennis player,very ordinary person.

Unlike Roger Federer (who understands that if you should meet with triumph and disaster you should treat those two impostors as the same.)

What happened? We don't get to see the US open any more unless signed up to Amazon Prime.

US Open 2018: Serena Williams accuses umpire of sexism after outbursts in final

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/tennis/45461716

Serena Williams accused the umpire of sexism in docking her a game in the US Open final and said she had not been cheating.

She received a code violation for coaching, a penalty point for racquet abuse and a game penalty for calling the umpire a "liar" and a "thief".

Afterwards the American said it was "sexist" to have been penalised a game.

"He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief'," the 36-year-old former world number one added.

"But I've seen other men call other umpires several things.

"I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff."
Yeah, "all kinds of stuff" .....

Ah... yes I see, I thought she was just playing tennis. What an idiot. Hopefully now we will stop hearing her banging on about her difficult birth and how hard it is for the millionairess to work and look after a child.

Re: Serena Williams

Later her coach admitted he'd been coaching from his seat, and Oasaka's coach said he had too, he said they always do!!!!!!!

Incredible admission!

It reminded me of the old McEnroe days!

Typical drama queen isn't she. Loads of money and they think they can change the bloody world with their petulant ranting!

Re: Serena Williams

Is that the same equality she's after that sees female tennis players on the same prize money as men even though they play fewer games in a match?
