US Open: Barbora Strycova slams Serena Williams' 'Bullsh--t' meltdown

  • Naomi Osaka beats Serena Williams

In a story that has transcended sports and become one of the biggest headlines in the country, Serena Williams supposed "screwjob" at the U.S. Open has turned into a much more complicated issue than simply an inquiry into the obscure rules of sportsmanship in the sport of tennis.

"This is bulls-t, for umpires, being women or men doesn't matter", Strycova told Czech website Sport.CZ. "I have a daughter, and I stand for what's right for her", Williams shouted. "Professional tennis players, sometimes, I think we lose sight of that".

As the International Tennis Federation and Ramos' fellow umpires leapt to his defence, citing the $17,000 in fines that officials levied against Williams as proof of his competency, Simon joined tennis icon Billie Jean King in applauding Williams for bringing officiating hypocrisy to light.

"For me, I don't feel sad because I wouldn't even know what I'm expected to feel", she said.

"I think for this year my immediate goal would be to get to Singapore", said Osaka after putting herself firmly in contention to reach the season-ending WTA Finals. "He did change the course of the match".

His trial, brought by special counsel Robert Mueller , was scheduled to begin with jury selection in Washington , D.C., Monday. As part of the plea deal, Manafort will forfeit properties in and around New York City as well as in Alexandria, Virginia.

Both during the match and in the aftermath, Williams made claims that the penalties against her came from a sexist umpire.

She revealed despite having beaten the former world champion, Williams was quick to comfort her among the jeers of the crowd echoing through the arena as she received her trophy.

"I know the way that I was brought up, people tell me I act kind of Japanese so I guess there is that".

Naomi Osaka is set to ink two huge deals less than a week after her controversial U.S. Open victory. It was at this point that Ramos called a code violation for verbal abuse. There's a lot of men out here who have said a lot of things. It added that US Open organizers confirmed Ramos' decisions when they chose to fine Williams for the three offenses.

"We can not measure ourselves by what we think we should also be able to get away with".
