Serena Williams talks fashion, not fouls at Las Vegas event

Serena Williams talks fashion, not fouls at Las Vegas event

Barely a week after her infamous "meltdown" during the final of the US Open, Serena Williams chose to talk about her fashion business and motherhood, rather than the tennis court, as she spoke to a business trade group in Las Vegas.

Jamie Murray and Novak Djokovic were among the stars of the men's game who publicly said that Ramos could have been more sympathetic to Williams.

But does this miss the point? The treatment of alleged victims in rape cases is still cause for concern, and I think we see more focus in newspapers on those women who've lied, very much in the minority. "I've seen a
lot of people get called for coaching before, and you might have a grumble and stuff, but you get on with it". "That is not right".

The report, looking at fines data at Grand Slam events from 1998 to 2018, found that women were fined 535 times, while men were fined 1,517 times.

The 23-time grand slam victor also makes explosive claims against the tennis world in general, saying men are treated differently to women on the court.

Osaka edged Coupe Rogers champion Simona Halep, US Open finalist Williams, and Western & Southern Open champion Kiki Bertens to top this month's ballot. He knows the rules and when he saw blatant, not "imperceptible", as Mr Chiu writes, hand signals from Ms Williams' coach, he was within his rights to give her a formal warning. That's partly because of a woman such as Serena Williams, who is willing to raise her voice - even if it's shaking. That enraged Williams, and her reactions started the process by which Williams ended up losing a point and a game for racket abuse and verbal abuse, respectively. Earlier today, we reported that she was rumored to be signing an endorsement deal with a major vehicle manufacturer. There are two potential variables for which these numbers don't account.




While the match was full of drama and controversy, Osaka told Degeneres that she didn't even know what had happened exactly because she was taught as a child to not look when an opponent shows anger on court.

In addition, I believe that "the system", partly due to resource issues, doesn't help women and families being abused, whether physically or emotionally and among my own gender I sometimes cannot believe how many men are behaving in ways which can only be described as evil.

The second variable comes a lot closer to Williams' actual complaint. They think differently. And men don't really understand women. She deserves support from both men and women.

Williams, too, called the umpire a "thief" and demanded an apology from him. "This is evidence of people just not being willing to call out the truth, which is Serena cheated and got caught".

None of this lets Williams off the hook.

This last outburst cost Williams a game, impacting the match and tarnishing what should have been a great win and a shining moment for her competitor, Naomi Osaka. Williams accused Ramos of sexism, pointing out that men are rarely called out for such outbursts.
