Serena Williams & Billie-Jean King's tennis sexism claims dismissed by Jamie Murray

Serena Williams & Billie-Jean King's tennis sexism claims dismissed by Jamie Murray

The third and final violation came when Williams called Ramos a "liar" and "thief" - a verbal abuse violation, which cost her a game penalty in the second set of the match.

Writing in The New York Times, Navratilova - the American 18-time grand slam victor - felt that Williams had some point in her argument with the officials, but that her behaviour was inexcusable, and something which was a bad look for those watching on. "But I'm going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us to have equal [treatment]".

British tennis player and U.S. Open mixed doubles champion Jamie Murray said that Serena Williams' reaction to her recent U.S. "It's because I am a woman, and that's not right".

"I think a lot of it maybe got over-amplified because it was the finals of the US Open".

According to a press release, Nissan plans to feature the US Open champion in ads and "support her activities as a tennis player", which included transportation in the company's cars during her tours.


Williams was seeking to equal Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles and was facing 20-year-old Osaka at Flushing Meadows in her first major final. It cracked with emotion as she continued, "I have never cheated in my life". And then before I knew it, I was getting all of this hostile mail and all of that during my last couple of years.

Osaka also admitted that she had no idea what was truly happening between Serena and the umpire, because she was taught to turn her back and stay focused when competitors confront the officials.

During and after the match, Williams pointed to sexism as part of the reason why she was given the three code violations that led to the significant penalties.

"I've always thought that Kei (Nishikori) is a super good role model on the men's side and I wish that there was one on the women's side". Williams was left baffled, furious, and in tears, by a decision she says was grounded in sexism.

In a statement released by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), Ramos was called "one of the most experienced and respected umpires in tennis". When I covered the Wimbledon tennis tournament in 2011 - a year female players were admonished for grunting too loudly - the towering Argentine Juan Martin del Potro grew frustrated during one match, took off his shoe, and hurled it out of the court.
