Steph Curry backs Serena Williams over US Open final outburst

Steph Curry backs Serena Williams over US Open final outburst

The International Tennis Federation supported Ramos in a statement released Monday, saying that his decisions were "in accordance with the relevant rules and were re-affirmed by the US Open's decision to fine Serena Williams for the three offenses".

The baseball Hall of Famer confronted plenty of ugliness as he was pursuing Major League Baseball's home run record in the 1970s, and in an interview with Forbes, he said the criticism Williams has faced - including an Australian newspaper cartoon decried as racist - bears echoes of his own past.

"If I say something I can tweet it out right now and the whole world can read it, and you can own that", he said. "I spent 23 years in baseball". However, I am a big fan of Serena Williams.

New statistics of the number of code violations in grand-slam events appear to show discrimination against men, if anything, as opposed to the discrimination against women claimed by supporters of Serena Williams after she received two violations during the recent U.S. Open.

Ramos was unperturbed, and Williams' rage continued: she was soon given a point penalty for smashing and making bits of her racket.

"I don't think I even thought about feeling sad because there's no experience for me to draw on (from) any other Grand Slam final".

Japanese tennis legend Kimiko Date told AFP it made her "heart ache" to see Osaka reduced to tears and unable to savour her moment of glory.


"Female referees are very good but maybe females should referee female matches because they understand how a woman thinks", O'Sullivan said.

That's something, Aaron told Moore, that he had never mentioned publicly before. Williams was outraged, and demanded an apology, telling Ramos that "I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose".

The 36-year-old had already had a point penalty for smashing her racquet and a code violation for coaching when she was penalised further for calling Ramos a "thief" and a "liar" in NY.

I agree that Serena Williams displayed unbecoming behaviour during the U.S. Open final. "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".

"When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical" and she's penalised for it", King said. If a woman tries to package herself as a driven and focused, the first question you ask her is "Who will marry you?".

The Japanese star not only walked off court last Saturday with the prestige that comes with winning the nation's most famous tennis tournament, she also got a check for $3.8 million.
