Jamie Murray: Serena US Open sexism claims far-fetched

Image Artist Blasted for Racist Depiction of Serena Williams at U.S. Open Image #2

Serena Williams hugs Naomi Osaka, of Japan, after Osaka defeated Williams in the women's final of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, in NY. Williams received warnings for receiving coaching and breaking a racket, before she was docked a game for calling Ramos a "thief".

The Portuguese official has been at the centre of a row involving Serena Williams, who accused him of being "sexist" as well as a "liar" and a "thief" in a dramatic US Open final defeat at the hands of Naomi Osaka.

The second and third violations earned Williams a point penalty and then a game penalty, giving Osaka a 5-3 second-set lead that effectively gifted her the title.

"You know I can not talk about that", Ramos said.

Following the match Williams cited sexism as the reason for her punishment, claiming that she had been treated more harshly than a man would have been.

The Herald Sun reported on Tuesday that Knight had been mentioned on Twitter almost 74,000 times following the cartoon's publication.

She is also set to ink a $10 million deal with Adidas to go with the almost $4 million she took home for her U.S. Open win.

The Weather Channel’s green-screen hurricane simulation is terrifying
More than 80,000 people were already without power as the storm began buffeting the coast, and more than 12,000 were in shelters. He said parts of North Carolina had seen storm surges - the bulge of seawater pushed ashore by the hurricane - as high as 3.5m.

"You're told to just turn around and try to focus so I tried to do that", 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.

Knight labelled the outcry against his cartoon as a sign that the "world has just gone crazy".

Knight drew a caricature of Williams throwing a temper tantrum, which was printed in the Herald Sun, following her loss to Japan's Naomi Osaka in the US Open women's singles final in NY last weekend.

Osaka, 20, became the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam with her 6-2 6-4 win over her idol Williams in the final on Saturday.

"I'm genuinely embarrassed for you", Julie Stoddart said in a tweet, while Ken McAlpine tweeted: "Poor little newspaper needs a hug". She later said Ramos' treatment of her was sexist because male players have said worse things and not been punished the way she was.

"I drew her as an African-American woman, she's powerfully built, she wears these outrageous costumes when she plays tennis - she's interesting to draw". She was drawn as a white woman with blonde hair.
