"I just want to tell you guys that she played well, and this is her first Grand Slam".
Williams, whose first crack at joining Australian Court atop the list of most Grand Slam titles ended in defeat at this year's Wimbledon final, knows she has come a long way since the Miami defeat to Osaka.
She tweeted when a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalized for it.
That's the kind of toughness Williams has so often shown in winning 23 Grand Slam singles titles, one shy of the record. "More voices are needed to do the same". We'll get through it. Let's not boo anymore... "Sad to mar a well played final that way". "Maybe in a few days I'll realise what I've done", said Osaka, adding that the noise was so great in Arthur Ashe Stadium and her focus so single-minded that she wasn't fully aware of the escalating controversy.
Umpire Carlos Ramos should have tried to "defuse the situation" before issuing a game penalty to an irate Serena Williams in the US Open final, said Lindsay Davenport. I'm not really sure because I've never been in the position.Читайте также: Amazon Fire HD 8 and Kids Edition released for 2018
It's going to take some time to answer the second, but the first seems all-but-decided at this point. You owe me an apology.
The crowd at Flushing Meadows in NY agreed with her, booing the umpire who was wise enough not to return to the Arthur Ashe court to pick up the usual memento for chairing a final.
That led to Ramos docking her the next game to leave Osaka just one game away from victory at 5-3 up. She berated him afterwards and insisted she did not cheat.
"In what was a blatantly racist and sexist move, tennis umpire Carlos Ramos unfairly penalized Serena Williams in an abhorrent display of male dominance and discrimination". Things escalated as Ramos continued docking Williams, who then called the judge a "thief".
"I cant sit here and say I wouldnt say hes a thief, because I thought he took a game from me", Williams said. "She's right about the guys being held to a different standard, there's no question". Her ugly rant at a line judge marred Kim Clijsters's semi-final win over her in 2009 and she infamously called chair umpire Eva Asderaki "unattractive inside" in a tantrum during her 2011 final loss to Samantha Stosur.
US Open chiefs have since admitted they were wrong for the warning, and apologised in a public statement.
Would any of us want to be judged or remembered by our worst moment? "This is also a prime example of how racism and sexism are two of the biggest obstacles that black women in America face".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
