Male Tennis Players Punished More Than Women

Umpires reportedly considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches | BellaNaija Serena Williams

"I guess I'd like to hang out with my sister - I haven't seen her since Wimbledon", said Osaka, who has become an unlikely hero in a country still reeling after a summer of deadly typhoons and earthquakes. "I am here fighting for women's right and women's equality.... and for me to say "thief" and for him to take a game it made me feel like it was sexist", she said. After a few points didn't go her way, Williams broke her racket in frustration, which was deemed to be a second infraction by Ramos, costing her a point.

I hate to sound whiny, but Serena's incident, whether you think she is a sore loser or not, should bring us to think about how we treat women who are not conventionally "ladylike".

"Don't you worry about me!" he added. How dare you insinuate that I was cheating?

During the final against Naomi Osaka, Williams was given a code violation for what chair umpire Carlos Ramos deemed to be on-court coaching. If you're a female you should be able to do, even half, of what a guy can do, ' Ms Williams said. How many other men do things? Advertising and sponsorship specialists predict a lot of such opportunities lie ahead for Osaka, who was born in Japan to a Haitian father and a Japanese mother and raised mostly in the U.S. "It's because I am a woman, and that's not right". I believe her message would have had a far greater impact if she had put out a well-thought-out statement after the match was over, when she had some time to reflect and cool down.

While Williams was fined $17,000, she had some very vocal support from the governing body.

British tennis player and U.S. Open mixed doubles champion Jamie Murray said that Serena Williams' reaction to her recent U.S.

Shortly after the news station was eviscerated on Twitter by people on both sides of the aisle, they changed their headline. An arrest affidavit prepared by a Texas Ranger was released Monday, providing a narrative of what happened.

Serena Williams produced an epic meltdown in her argument with chair umpire Carlos Ramos.

But as per a data analysis compiled by the Times, the male players were slapped with 1,1517 fines as compared to 535 fines for female players in the Grand Slam tournaments for the period between 1998 to 2018.

"I've never been called for coaching, but the racket abuse, the verbal abuse, that's just part of the sport".

The outlier, intriguingly, is coaching, the issue which ignited this sorry saga.

The five-time snooker world champion has suggested that the whole US Open palaver could have been avoided if only female referees were used in women's sports, and male refs in male sports.
