US Open: Barbora Strycova slams Serena Williams' 'Bullsh--t' meltdown

US Open: Barbora Strycova slams Serena Williams' 'Bullsh--t' meltdown

Write to us in the Comments Section or on our Facebook page. It has become a slogan of sorts for a certain brand of traditional sports fan - a plea to keep sports free from our increasingly fractured and politicised atmosphere. "He did change the course of the match".

"We're here to play; Carlos is here to umpire; and we don't expect anything out of the ordinary", Courier said. We are now hyper-aware of the injustices and inequities of the world, of which sport isn't immune.

The U.S. Open fined Williams for her three code violations.

The Japanese player's breakthrough triumph in NY was overshadowed by an explosive row between her opponent Serena Williams and umpire Carlos Ramos. The warning incensed Williams, not only because coaching hand gestures have become so common in the modern era of tennis and nearly always go unpunished, but especially because it called her character into question. In comparison, I never saw Nadal shouting like that with an umpire. Williams told Ramos. "You owe me an apology".

"We should not let her record, as glowing as it is, overshadow the fact that on this day, in this match Williams was wrong", Ings wrote in The Sydney Morning Herald. She later smashed her racket on the court, resulting in a point penalty and more choice words for Ramos. Ramos penalized her a game for verbal abuse, something virtually unheard of in such an important match.

USTA president said Williams showed "a great deal of class and sportsmanship", without referencing the feud with the umpire.

"I'm fine, given the circumstances", Carlos Ramos told Portuguese newspaper Tribuna Expresso. "I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff".

Williams claimed the male umpire only handed her a game penalty because he was being sexist but Strycova disagrees with those remarks. For me, it blows my mind. "The fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions and wants to express themselves and wants to be strong woman". "She's passionate. She was speaking out". Players get upset on court, players get code violations on court. She was called emotional, her rage labelled a meltdown, a tantrum.

On the other side of the net, though, the 20-year-old Osaka kept her cool in her first Grand Slam final to win 6-2 6-4.

The incident has gobbled headlines all week, with some, such as Billie Jean King and USTA head Katrina Adams, saying tennis has a double standard in which men are not similarly punished for outbursts and others, such as Martina Navratilova and Mary Carillo, defending tennis's rules.
