    Thatís an unfortunate stain on Osakaís first major

    Serenaís coach was very open about things

    Serena didnít do much.
    Chair ump could have let it go with a warning, no? Or was he not able to issue a warning at that point?

    Williams sisters have always been volatile when things aren't going their way. The young Osaka took it to her from the start.

    Naomi should know this. It's not a secret:

    https://ftw.usatoday.com/2015/09/ser...-roberta-vinci

    "Serena Williams is the worst kind of loser — the one who wants to bask in the adulation of an adoring media when she wins, then acts put out when she has to answer to the same press after she loses. Look up to Serena for her athleticism, for her power, for her courage, for her tenacity and for being the greatest female athlete of a generation. But don’t look up to her sportsmanship. It’s her weakest link."

    Irrelevant. US Open tennis is the biggest female sporting event. So in the respect of advertisers it's worth more than the mens event. Ever been to a tennis club? It's mostly women who have money to buy stuff.

    Serena had a chance to be a true icon. Blew it. Ruined it for a young champion.

    You can climb down from your high horse now, I was joking around. I don't give a rat's ass how many sets anyone plays.

    Familiar behavior. She did the same thing in 2011 when she lost:

    "In what universe of morality is it acceptable for an athlete to put herself above her sport? Unfortunately tennis is littered with such incidents. There is little respect for officials, in the chair or on the lines. They are considered irrelevant to the drama, objects of derision if things go wrong, punchbags for privileged sporting celebrities."

    Millman destroyed a raquet three nights ago, no penalty at all. And the shirt changing warning to the woman, when men do it all the time.
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    Smashing a racquet is automatic code violation. Could have been a violation because you basically play just play on and it's marked as warning.

    Spook in a tennis thread. Lol..

    Serena pisses all over the match against a young woman that idolized her and then uses #metoo as an excuse. What a disgrace.
