Serena Williams & Billie-Jean King's tennis sexism claims dismissed by Jamie Murray

Serena Williams & Billie-Jean King's tennis sexism claims dismissed by Jamie Murray

It's been eight days since all hell broke loose at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Ramos called three rules violations against Williams during the event. Her 36-year-old opponent cleared that up for her with a whisper in her ear during the trophy presentation.

Soon after, Williams lost her cool in a way worthy of famous tennis hothead John McEnroe.

Osaka, 20, heard boos when she was receiving her trophy and in the moment thought they were directed at her for her win against fan-favorite Williams.

Sadly, Osaka wasn't shedding tears of joy, which remains the most unfortunate aspect of the entire incident.

Williams again informed Ramos that she is not a cheat and did not receive coaching from Mouratoglou, even adding that she had a daughter so would never do that.

While Ramos is known as a stickler for the rules, the USA team won't have to worry about coaching violations since captains sit courtside during Davis Cup matches and are permitted to give advice throughout the match.

Williams, too, called the umpire a "thief" and demanded an apology from him.

Does a double standard exist in Grand Slam officiating? Ramos should add it to his reading list. For her to say she wouldn't have been penalised if she were a man misses the point.

In many ways, it was not only an example of the best sports have to offer, but the best of what the world has to offer considering all of the first-class individuals from numerous countries who participate and compete to win the prestigious tournament.

The EPP's leader, Manfred Weber, said he would vote in favor of the motion against Orban's government, whose Fidesz party belongs to his grouping.

No matter. Enough should've been enough.

Mr Chiu put the blame for the debacle on the umpire, Carlos Ramos.

Williams received a second violation when she smashed her racket in frustration.

A report by The Times of London published on Tuesday cited an anonymous official saying that tennis umpires are considering refusing to officiate matches involving Williams.

"This doesn't happen if she's not losing". Just calm, measured responses that were carefully considered.

"I think for this year my immediate goal would be to get to Singapore", said Osaka after putting herself firmly in contention to reach the season-ending WTA Finals. "You definitely can't go back in time". And then I work super hard at my fashion business.

While I cannot see how Serena could be blamed for her coach signalling to her, her behaviour was poor, and very poor at that.

"I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff".

"She makes some good points and they're points that need to be taken seriously by the tennis establishment", Ellis said. There's a lot of men out here who have said a lot of things. I know how I threw the racket. They're going to be allowed to do that because of today.
