Serena Williams accused the umpire of sexism in docking her a game in the US Open 2018 final and she had not been cheating.
Naomi Osaka beat Serena Williams in US Open 2018 Final by 6-2, 6-4 to become Japan’s first ever Grand Slam singles champion.
She received a code violation for coaching, a penalty point for racquet abuse and game penalty for calling the umpire a liar and a thief.
Serena Williams said in the press conference, I have seen other men call other umpire several things. I’m here fighting for woman’s rights and for woman’s equality and for all kinds of stuff. for me to say thief ad for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark. He’s never taken a game from a man because they said ‘thief’.
Williams insisted that her coach Patrick Mourtoglou had not been coaching even though the Frenchman told ESPN that he had and that all coaches do it.
“For me to say their and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark. He’s never taken a game from a man because they said thief. for me it blow my mind. But I’m going to continue to fight for woman.”
Serena Williams said, “Cornet should be able to take off her shirt without getting a fine. this is outrageous.”
I feel like that fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions , and that want to express themselves , and wan to be a strong woman.
They are going to be allowed to do that because of today. May be it did not work out for me, but it’s going to work out for the next person.
