Jamie Murray says Serena Williams’ sexism claims are ‘far-fetched’

If it was wrong, it should prompt a discussion about what needs to be changed in either the rules or the interpretation of the rules to reduce officiating errors. Now more than ever, sport has gone from recreation for the masses to a battleground in the increasingly unavoidable culture war.

Ramos had already dished out two violations to Williams for smashing her racquet and coaching, when he issued a point penalty for verbal abuse. She calls him a thief and a liar.

"Yes, I was coaching just like everybody else", he said. Gusts of rage and injustice cyclone through your body, and you think: "Don't let me lose it". She has slowed down, she is probably not so "hungry" anymore, and she has been losing more matches, including a recent 6-0, 6-1 defeat to Johanna Konta in California.

Clay Travis heavily refutes Serena's claims and called out the media for openly accepting and promoting extremely delicate and inflammable accusations that immorally stir up the worst parts of our society, especially when baseless in nature.

Ramos gave Williams three code violations in her straight-set loss to Naomi Osaka last weekend, and the American great argued she wasn't being treated the same as some male players. "Maybe it's coincidence", Williams said.

However, Murray said he disagreed that umpires were more lenient towards men than women. This time an umpire finally had the courage to deal appropriately with her abusive behaviour, and we applaud Carlos Ramos for his strength in doing the right thing. "I am here fighting for women's right and women's equality and for me to say "thief" and for him to take a game it made me feel like it was sexist", she said.

"But in my mind, I really wanted to know what was going on". Everyone who has experienced discrimination can empathise with her passionate plea.

At Flushing Meadows on Saturday, the 20-year-old was reduced to tears during the presentation ceremony but on her arrival back in Japan on Thursday, she said she had not been saddened by the incident.

Williams pleaded her case to other officials who were called to the court, and called out what she sees as a double-standard in the sport - saying that male tennis players never face harsh penalties like hers for similar actions.

Mouratoglou admitted to coaching Williams from the stands but claimed that everyone does it. She was called emotional, her rage labelled a meltdown, a tantrum.

Standing on the baseline in the largest tennis stadium in the world, the Arthur Ashe Stadium in NY, 20-year-old Haitian-Japanese, Naomi Osaka, was attempting to do the unthinkable, beat the 23 Grand Slam Champion and multiple Olympic Gold medalist, Serena Williams in straight sets, in front of her home crowd. Men and women are different.
