Jamie Murray: Serena US Open sexism claims far-fetched

Earlier today, we reported that she was rumored to be signing an endorsement deal with a major auto manufacturer. We are now hyper-aware of the injustices and inequities of the world, of which sport isn't immune.

"What we're looking for, we're looking for an apology from Serena to the official or officials in general".

Naomi Osaka said on Thursday Serena Williams's row with the umpire during the US Open final had not altered her feelings about winning a Grand Slam, largely because she had no idea how she was supposed to react. The double standards are clear.

According to The Times of London, tennis' top umpires are considering a boycott of future matches involving Williams.

"Coaching is common, a lot of people are doing it, some people aren't getting called for it", Murray continued.

"For me, I'm just me", said Osaka, when asked whether she represented a "new Japan". "That's all I can say", Ramos told The Associated Press before the opening singles between Borna Coric and Steve Johnson, which he did not officiate.

Governor Cooper said there have been "several hundred" rescue operations and "there are still some people they need to get to". It was expected to begin pushing its way westward across SC later in the day, in a watery siege that could go on all weekend.

In the second set of Williams' match against Naomi Osaka, Ramos warned Williams for receiving coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches.

The jeers mostly were a response to the controversy that overshadowed the match: The chair umpire assessed Williams a full game penalty after she berated him for accusing her of cheating by taking illegal coaching. "It's because I am a woman, and that's not right". It made me feel like it was a sexist remark. "He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief'". For me, it blows my mind. "Overall I felt really happy and know I accomplished a lot". Everyone who has experienced discrimination can empathise with her passionate plea.

Williams received three code violations and was penalized a point and one game.

Strycova was also surprised that the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) later came out in support of Williams.

Mouratoglou admitted to coaching Williams from the stands but claimed that everyone does it.

Date, a former world number four, has tipped Osaka to become Japan's first tennis number one. 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". "We have to treat each other fairly and the same".
