Australian newspaper's cartoon mocking Serena Williams branded 'racist'

Australian newspaper's cartoon mocking Serena Williams branded 'racist'

Williams, who is considered one of the greatest players of all time with 23 Grand Slam victories, was beaten by 20-year-old Naomi Osaka of Japan on Saturday night.

He had given her a warning for coaching, then a point penalty for smashing her racket and, after she repeatedly expressed frustration, including calling him a "thief", Ramos levied the game penalty for verbal abuse.

"Serena was out of line".

The Times reporter Stuart Fraser also refuted King's claim that Ramos heightened the situation, pointing out how he actually tried to defuse things before Serena told him not to talk to her - which he respected. When a man does the same, he's "outspoken" and there are no repercussions.

Another tweeted: "The saddest part about Mark Knight's cartoon depiction of Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka is that he believes that he has done nothing wrong and that everyone is overreacting and does not understand the art of caricature. More voices are needed to do the same".

Brexit plan reportedly opposed by 80 Tory rebels
An influential Brexiteer in May's party, Steve Baker , said on Monday that 80 or more of her lawmakers are prepared to vote against her Brexit plan.

Otherwise, they are effectively censoring one of the sport's most iconic and important players in a way that will only serve to turn away other women who are thinking of picking up a racket and perusing their own tennis dreams. They say they are often forced to watch their tone and words in the workplace in ways that men and other women are not.

"Umpires are just upset", Ings said. Speaking about on-court coaching, she said, "Tennis is an individual sport and that's what people love about it", Routliffe said. "I think it's a matter of having a conversation with the two guys and saying let's cut it out, let's slow it down, and then perhaps not understanding how they can have the same conversation with the females". The character was the biggest issue here, this is a human being you're talking to.

Sarah Parcak, professor and space archeologist, said she "reported this racist cartoonist to Twitter for abuse and encourage you to do so as well". "But umpiring à la carte is something that does not exist", he said.

'Do not worry about me!'

International Tennis Federation spokeswoman Heather Bowles confirmed to the AP on Tuesday that Carlos Ramos was chosen to work at the best-of-five series between the countries that begins Friday and concludes Sunday in Zadar, Croatia.

International Tennis Federation defends umpire after Serena Williams flap
And I grudgingly held on to that racket. "Yeah I think she was a spoiled brat", he said . "The world has just gone insane ". Let's not boo anymore". "He saw violations and he had the courage of his convictions to call them when he saw them".

The Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) were among those to back Williams in the aftermath of her outburst.

Adams told ESPN after the match that Ramos would not have dealt out such severe punishments if he had been dealing with a male player.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) on Monday defended Ramos, backing the umpire for the way he handled the situation in hard circumstances.

The Davis Cup tie is scheduled to start on Friday.
