It all started with the chairmanship of the Portuguese chair after Williams coached the infringement, his coach Patrick Mouratoglou asked Serena to use hands signals to move towards the net.
The US Open 2018 women’s final match ended with a historic win with Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka. However, his victory was unfortunately covered with a bag between his rival Serena Williams and the chair umpire Carlos Ramos.
Although many tennis fans praised Osaka for their performance, the conversation has moved to the spot. Many fans took social media in support of two female players and threw the chair umpires to be sexist.
Serena Williams didn’t have a meltdown. She defended her honor on one of the grandest stages in a sport she’s dominated for her entire adult life that continually disrespects her. Don’t reduce her justified frustration to sexist behavioral stereotypes.

It all started with the chairmanship of the Portuguese chair after Williams coached the infringement, his coach Patrick Moratoglu asked Serena to use hands signals to move towards the net.
However, Williams argued that he had turned his back towards his coach and he was asking him to increase his game. Williams said that he does not take coaching in court and will be defeated by fraud.
In the fifth game of the second set, Williams was docked after breaking his racket in frustration. As soon as the game came out, the drama also did. Still upset with Ramos, Williams apologized for the ending of the score in the second set when the score was 4-3.
“How do you dare my character, I have never cheated in my life, you will never be in court with me till you live, you are a liar. You’re sorry, “she said. Ramos docked a game for oral abuse and scored scoreline 5-3 in favor of Osaka.
Williams coach Mouratoglu later admitted that he was trying to train the player from the stand but he said that Osaka’s coach Sascha Bajin was doing the same way. “I’m honest. I was coaching,” said Mouratoglou. “I do not think he had seen it once. Sascha was coaching every point, everybody does.”
The world just got a full taste of black womanhood.
Can’t win squarely. Can’t lose squarely. Can’t be on top at the same time. Can’t be emotional in public.

Men like John McEnroe are celebrated for their spirit on the court. Women like Serena are told they need to quiet down and play nice. What a goddamn ridiculous double standard.#USOpen

I have literally never seen a trophy ceremony like this. The fans are upset. The loser is upset. The winner is even upset. And everyone’s got tears in their eyes. #usopen But Serena and Naomi both showed so much class today 🙌🏽… I’m loving that aspect …
