Stop Saying that Serena Williams is a 'Victim'

SerenaWilliams- Cropped

"This is a bulls***, for umpires being women or men doesn't matter", Strycova told Sport.CZ, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Controversy and turmoil has been roiling ever since Ramos gave Serena Williams a violation for receiving coaching during last Saturday's final defeat to Naomi Osaka. She commented, "Me, as a woman, take a lot of warnings".

"Serena Williams decides she's gonna blame sexism for the way she was treated and then the media applauds her?"

"There is a lot of unhappiness in the umpiring community because no one is standing up for officials".

"For me, I don't feel sad because I wouldn't even know what I'm expected to feel", she said.

The Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and Billie Jean King were among those to back Williams, with the latter calling out a "double standard" in the game.

Much of Carolinas awash after Hurricane Florence moves in
Boarding up his home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina , Chris Pennington watched the forecasts and tried to decide when to leave. Florence had been a Category 3 hurricane with 120-mph winds on Thursday, but dropped to Category 1 before coming ashore.

"WTA defence surprised me".

"He did what he had to do in that match, because she overcame the limit".

She said: "My favourites are Serena [Williams] and [Roger] Federer".

"I know the way that I was brought up, people tell me I act kind of Japanese so I guess there is that". It was at this point that Ramos called a code violation for verbal abuse. Navratilova said, "It wasn't the right time to bring it up", and that she would have expected to face similar penalties for acting as Williams did. She was disqualified from a semifinal match at the 2009 US Open for threatening a lineswoman. "And that work ethic is the same whether you are a man or a woman". "He never took a game from a man because he said "thief".

The International Tennis Federation stood by Ramos in a statement, saying, "Mr Ramos's decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules and were reaffirmed by the US Open's decision to fine Ms. Williams for the three offences".

However, a perusal of Knight's body of editorial cartoons shows that no one is safe from his criticism and he regularly depicts all sorts of public figures in an unflattering light, grossly exaggerating their physical features.
