Defiant Australian paper reprints ‘racist’ Serena cartoon

Serena Williams didn't get it her own way in the US Open final where she was repeatedly penalised for various code

Williams claimed Ramos' actions in NY were "sexist" but speaking to BBC Sport yesterday, US Open mixed-doubles champion Murray said: "I think that's a bit far-fetched".

Watching the women's final between Williams and Naomi Osaka from his Atlanta home, Aaron saw Williams react angrily when chair umpire Carlos Ramos warned her about receiving coaching, something that happens commonly in tennis but is rarely sanctioned.

An Australian cartoonist faced withering criticism on Tuesday for portraying tennis superstar Serena Williams using - what Harry Potter author JK Rowling described as - "racist and sexist tropes".

The new U.S. Open champion, Naomi Osaka, was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday and she talked for the first time about her whirlwind experience over the last week. Ramos warned and penalized Williams for three rule violations, including smashing her racket on the court.

Over the past 20 years, male players have been far more likely to be fined for misdemeanours than their female counterparts.

On pulling down his account amidst uproar on Twitter, Knight revealed that he did it to protect his family from the abuse.

Clay Travis heavily refutes Serena's claims and called out the media for openly accepting and promoting extremely delicate and inflammable accusations that immorally stir up the worst parts of our society, especially when baseless in nature.

The cartoon took away from the original scandal that erupted around Williams' behaviour during the most recent US Open women's final.

"I have definitely been thinking about if little kids were watching and they wanted to play tennis too", she said. The world has gone insane, ' Knight declared during an interview with The Herald Sun.

As Osaka received her trophy after beating Serena Williams in straight sets in the women's singles final, the crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium actually started booing.

She said: "I think for this year my immediate goal would be to get to Singapore".

Williams smashed her racquet, breaking it, bringing about her second violation for racquet abuse, resulting in a point penalty.

"I drew her as she is".

United States player Steve Johnson added: "Look, I don't want this to come out the wrong way, but he enforced rules that have been enforced on me over the years".
