I cant stand the sport of tennis etc. However Im on Serena's side on this one. Men who have played this sport have done waaaay worse than what Serena did during this match. Ive seen men cuss out Carlos Ramos during matches and he didnt do shit. The reason everyone is getting so bothered by Serena's conduct is because shes a black woman who called out someones BS. God Forbid Serena gets angry but yet gets wrongfully labelled "Angry black woman," for doing so smh... So yes it is sexism and blatant favoritism, SAS needs to really look at it from a different perspective that men do get treated differently than women when it comes to certain sports. The Ironic part of this interview was how SAS just said "If Serena Williams was a man, shed be the GOAT." This is the point Serena was trying to make, if she was a man this wouldn't be discussed or it wouldn't of happened.

crunchysauce Soat oldin
Max and others need to stop comparing Serena's outburst to the players of the 70s and 80s. That was a different era. And it doesn't matter that the mens tennis players smash their rackets, whether male or female, its a racket abuse violation for anyone doing it.

AlexandriaBurns 2 soat oldin
So what the hosts are arguing for is for referees in all sports to ignore the written rules and follow a secret set of rules that allows players who have been cheating to continue to do so because "everyone does it". This is literally an argument for allowing performance enhancing drugs into sports.
furrynick 2 soat oldin
For once I agree with Stephen A and can someone please smack Max Kellerman he has no clue what the fuck his talking about. No one is talking about the winner they all talking about the looser because she acted like a sore looser and she took away the other girl accomplishment with her childish behavior and looser attitude.

I haven't really heard anyone mention it this way but I thought Serena behaved that way as a way out of being beaten by the better player. She escalated the situation with the umpire way beyond what's acceptable and I think she did it because she new she was going to lose. The judge isn't at fault at all, everyone loses their shit playing sport that's why we love it but if you keep going you have to take your punishment. Serena tainted her entire career with this, being the bully but playing the victim.
konrad2008 3 soat oldin
Always about 'emotions' with liberals these day. "He could have been better with his emotions" but he did everything right as an umpire with enforcing the rules of tennis...... boo fucking hoo, there was no sad and guilty looking face or whimpering voice when he told off Williams. This planet is fucked!

Cmmon white boy, dont be afraid to tell what you really feel...u are intimidated because Serena is a black female. It doesnt matter gender of race, rules are rules, no one should be allowed to be or feel above them. Serena was a rude, megalomaniac, sore loser. Her coach cheated, she broke the racket and was unnecessarily rude to call Ramos a thief. She was fueled by her sense of “black privilege”

Fact 1: She was being coached , which was both filmed and admitted by her coach. Fact 2: You cant claim sexism when both you and the opponent are females. Fact 3: You cant blame racism when your opponent is half black, half japanese. Fact 4: She claims men get less penalties, which was not only disproven, but shown that men get more penalties. Fact 5: Her points werent stolen. She gave them away by 1) breaking her racket , 2) insulting the judge and stalling the game People who support Williams are either SJW or blacks.

Tennis players (good ones) are known for immature outbursts. They do not have teammates and are the center of attention constantly. Having coached tennis, I have seen many players lose their temper and act like total idiots on the court, throwing rackets and abusive language. They believe this behavior is justified until an umpire calls them on it, then they lose their shit.

I'm with Serena on this one, she worked her ass off and some sexist pig took that win from a strong independant woman just to turn around and give it to some....other ...strong independant woman?....okay, I retract my statement, Serena Williams is just an entitled twat, I apologize for any confusion I had LOL

But she’s not the greatest of all time. If she were a man playing at her level she would be nowhere near the top. That’s just going off actual rankings. Tired of people saying she’s the best regardless of gender. Be cool if it was true, but it isn’t.

This took all the focus away from Naomis amazing performance. And thats what is really wrong. Rules are rules and some officials will be stricter on them. Serena has no one to blame but herself for her loss. You should never give any official a reason to penalize you in a sport. And unfortunately Serena let her superstar status and emotions cloud her better judgment. She should’ve handled herself in a more professional manner wether the official was tough or laid back. What a disappointment.

Rules are the base of the game, if she did not uphold those rules it is pointless to argue if she could win. If the rules define behavior too, then she should stick to it, or search for another profession. Ladies and Gentlemans sport seems after a certan age not suiting to Serena Williams that mutch, maybe she should move to other similar sport like baseball, she can swear, spit and arguing there as mutch she want, and the way of the motion is similar too.

Who gives a shit if she argued with the ump? In every other sport the players always argue with the ref and yell horrible shit at them all the time. She is a pro playing in one of the biggest tournaments in tennis. I don't even like Serena but to take away a game for smashing her racket in the biggest game of the tournament seems like some petty ridiculous shit and I would have been pissed too. Tennis needs to change some of these gay ass rules.

Serena coach may have cheated but she didn't the video showed she wasn't looking at him that's why she didn't realize the first warning was a penalty she thought the breaking of her racket was the first warning but what I don't get is why was he watching her coach when she was at the other end of the court and why didn't he see Sasha doing the same thing coaching Naomi. The only thing we no for sure is that we will never no if Naomi would have won on her own cause he stole that opportunity from her but if she can break Serena Williams record in majors I might give her the benefit of the doubt
Eli.Feliz 11 soat oldin
"Insert himself" Max, he actually had no choice in the matter... and everything she said was Patently False. Finally, the coaching incident resulted in a WARNING (which if she keeps playing this amounts to literally nothing). Serena gave the match to Osaka and stole the spotlight. Ramos was simply the scapegoat.
