"This is a bulls***, for umpires being women or men doesn't matter", Strycova reportedly said.
Freedman was scathing of Williams' outburst, claiming the United States media was the only party that was sympathetic towards her and believed she had done nothing wrong. No Serena, you are obfuscating the whole issue and, sadly, a lot of people are falling for it. She reached her first Women's Tennis Association (WTA) finals two years later at the 2016 Toray Pan Pacific Open, and in 2017, beat defending champion Angelique Kerber in the first round of the U.S. Open. A second code violation brings a point penalty and a third is penalized by the loss of a game, as was the case with Williams a week ago. Remember her "I swear to God I'll f.ing take the ball and shove it down your f.ing throat" at the linesman for calling her for a foot-fault against Kim Clijsters during the 2009 semi-final?
According to a new report from The Guardian, Serena and the umpire at the centre of her US Open meltdown are "likely to be kept apart" at the Australian Open. But Osaka, who has shone a light on mixed-race athletes in Japan with her fairytale NY triumph, warned that she is now a completely different player.
"Really, it's just about having a great team. and rolling up your sleeves and hard work", Williams said. When he called the confused players to explain the reason for the change in score, a stunned Serena laughed in disbelief and demanded to speak to the tournament referee Brian Earley, who walked onto the court along with a Grand Slam supervisor.
He added that Osaka's coach was also coaching her during the match.
