Re: Serena Williams
I don't know much about modern tennis, but there does seem to be a division of opinion about the incident.
To the ITF (based in London), the umpire was perfectly justified in his decisions. IMO, Williams is full of her own self-importance and driving ambition - her behaviour in a sports final was appalling.
To the WTF (based in Florida), Williams was treated unfairly by the umpire and deprived of due respect and reward. Williams was only standing up for her rights.
AFAIK, the ATP have been quiet on the matter, although a couple of top players have indicated that they felt that Williams was out of order.
Williams is proclaiming that she reacted to the umpire's decisions in defence of her "sisters" ..... "I'm going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equality."
With the ongoing "Me,Too" movement still popular in the USA, Williams' attitude has, no doubt, generated massive support for herself .....
Personally, I hope her performance goes downhill from now on and that Naomi Osaka becomes a new "influencer" in tennis .....
