Newspaper defends 'racist' Serena Williams cartoon

Serena Williams had a massive fallout with the chair umpire Carlos Ramos at the US Open 2018 Final

Serena Williams had a massive fallout with the chair umpire Carlos Ramos at the US Open 2018 Final

The loss of the point prompted Williams to call Ramos a "thief", which led to a third violation for verbal abuse that resulted in the umpire issuing a game penalty, although he could have prevented the incident from escalating, King said.

But world No 25 Strycova hit out strongly at Williams in an interview with Sport.CZ, shooting down her accusations that umpires treat women differently and lashing the former world No 1's behaviour. "We do not believe that this was done last night".

Great Britain Davis Cup star Jamie Murray has rejected claims that male tennis players receive preferential treatment from umpires following Serena Williams' insinuation that sexism played a role in the code violations she received during the US Open final.

Despite the outrage, the paper reprinted the cartoon alongside unflattering caricatures of U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, attempting to portray the controversy as an effort to curtail free speech. In the midst of losing Saturday's final, the 23-time Grand Slam champion smashed her racquet and called the umpire a "thief" and a "liar". "Overall, I felt really happy and know I accomplished a lot". When a man does the same, he's "outspoken" and there are no repercussions. In fact, this is the sort of behavior that no one should be engaging in on the court ...

"They are always with their gang behind, their team", Strycova said. Williams claimed Ramos' actions in NY were "sexist" but speaking to BBC Sport yesterday, US Open mixed-doubles champion Murray said: "I think that's a bit far-fetched". How dare you insinuate I was cheating?




"If the self-appointed censors of Mark Knight get their way on his Serena Williams cartoon, our new politically correct life will be very boring indeed", the paper wrote in an editorial on its front page.

Williams, who was under the impression the first violation had been rescinded, returned to Ramos to seek an apology for saying she had received coaching earlier. Herald Sun cartoonist Mark Knight is being called a racist and sexist for his portrayal of Williams, showing her stomping on the court in the manner of a toddler in the throws of a temper tantrum.

Asked how she felt about being a role model for young children, Osaka gave mixed signals.

Williams' heated exchanges with an umpire at the tournament final this week have stirred the tennis world.
