Roger Federer is very intrigued by the Serena Williams dustup

There were ups, like Naomi Osaka, a 20-year-old from Japan, becoming champion. Do you ever see Roger Federer lose his temper when losing? The match saw several penalties handed to Williams via chair umpire Carlos Ramos, many of which Williams took issue with.

"Ramos has a reputation of being a ridiculously strict umpire, in men's and women's tennis, so the accusation of sexism is hard to understand".

Online criticism following the match was rife with insults and attacks directed toward Williams, presenting a double standard rooted in hypocrisy and inherent gender bias. If all a player has to do to avoid being penalized in that situation is to say, "I didn't see it", the rule would be unenforceable.

Alexis Ohanian, Serena Williams' husband, has reportedly exhibited his annoyance and has lashed out at a report of the New York Time which has seemingly clashed with the argument of Williams' related to the unfair treatment towards the female tennis player. He coached her from the stands. According to the rules, any communication between a player and coach-be it audible or visible-can be construed as coaching. 'Help me make sure she sees it!' he wrote.

"In calling Ramos a "thief", and accusing him of sexism, Serena was in effect calling a highly respected official a cheat". It was not, however. However, Williams did not know that the warning was still on the table, which leads directly to the second violation.

Osaka beat her hero, the reason she got into tennis in the first place. When a backhand by Williams got caught in the net and cost her the game, Williams smashed her racket on the court and broke it.

Ms. Osaka had won one set, but Serena was winning when the dastardly call and act by the umpire occurred.

Ramos then docked her a game for verbal abuse, a move Williams later described as sexist. However, this is obsolete.

The controversy created a variety of reactions, including Billie Jean King and Warriors star Stephen Curry also showing support for Williams.

When I sat down to watch the U.S. Open women's finals earlier this month, I never expected to experience so much anger during a tennis match.

All this goes to show sexism and racism are rampant in the sport of tennis. Despite the drama surrounding the match, the tennis veteran displayed sportsmanship by giving her opponent encouraging words as the crowd booed the outcome. During a break in a game, Cornet left the court to change shirts. She received a code violation for this. She wasn't even looking at her coach as he was trying to signal her. But if they have real grievances, there are proper guidelines and procedures to follow. "Women are treated differently in most arenas of life".

With hindsight, suppose McEnroe had said that Williams was more dominant among women players than any man was among male players.
