^Well I should hope so. But regardless of whether she (or others) want to admit the coaching or not, at the time it happened, the umpire was in the right and therefore there was no reason for Serena to disrespect him like she did. He was just doing his job. It is not the first of this kind of situation with Serena, as she had previously been not only agressive but also very threatening to others on court. It is clear that she has a short fuse (how many rackets has she broken again?), usually when she comes close to losing. This is not new and there is plenty of footage for this out there. She is the one who tends to humiliate others. I wonder how Naomi feels after her victory was eclipsed by Serena's loud and mediatised outbursts...

can any one see on video of the actual match? if so, tell me when Serena was actually focusing on Mouratoglou's coaching gestures. if Mouratoglou is also in coaching violation why is Serena taking the total blame for the (alleged) violation only on her part? rolleyes [Edited 9/17/18 2:51am]

also, is there any frozen footage of Serena making eye-contact with Mouratoglou?
and why is there no up close video footage or mention of said? especially since Mouratoglou was at the other end of the court.

From my understanding, the coaches are not paid or contracted to the tournament, only the players. The coach is paid and contracted to Serena. If she wants to fine him, they can sort that out between themselves.

excerpt:

It’s a fact that the sport that gave us John McEnroe and Ilie Nastase and Jimmy Connors and so many other bad boys has tolerated without penalty far worse behavior than the language Williams used Saturday evening. She said as much in her defense during the match and after, and others quickly agreed with her.

“I will admit I have said worse and not gotten penalized,” James Blake, the former top-ranked U.S. male tennis player, wrote on Twitter Saturday night. “And I’ve also been given a 'soft warning' by the ump where they tell you knock it off or I will have to give you a violation. He should have at least given her that courtesy.”

why don't you try to get over yourself and your need to be right about something you clearly no nothing about. then admit that your lack of knowledge makes you look like a typical pinbrain. if one is ignorant and unaware of historical injustices, then openly displays their stupidity by attempting to discuss the core of the topic at hand, seems their like a dog chasing their own tail. 🤓 so my little misguided kernel tweety, take some advice, try to move forward from a 1910 mindset and wake tfu. try to 1. jettison your micro comprehension forward. 2. zoom your mindset into the now. please take a few moments to read and try to comprehend/understand the following article: Why the Serena Williams US Open cartoon actually is racist : https://www.google.com/am...ature/amp/ 👓 and remember, for future reference: "Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." author~ Dr Martin Luther King, Jr [Edited 9/16/18 3:24am]

Which is still nothing more than an excuse that concedes she and her coach broke the rules - "those other players got away with breaking the rules, why can't my hero/team?"

.

The truth is in every game there will always be Refs who are more or less strict. When a Ref is strict AFTER a player or team has already broken more than one rule (her coach did not break her racquet) and is escalating this by repeatedly arguing with the Ref, this does not mean it is anyone else's fault other than that player's. Where the player has form e.g. McEnroe or Williams then their history will attract more attention from the Refs than people like James Blake.

.

A list of the penalties handed out to McEnroe has already been posted in this thread. Can you name a time when Serena was disqualified from a whole tournament and ejected from from the court? This actually happened to McEnroe. McEnroe's last fine was more than 37% of his winnings in that grand slam tournment, Serena latest fine was less than 1% of her winnings. Can you name a period when Serena was banned from playing, removed from teams, temporarily had honourary memberships revoked etc. If there is a double standard, the double standard is against people like McEnroe and Williams because of their history not their gender. I remember people defending McEnroe with the same fervour that you are defending Williams and everyone can remember times when that other team from the other side, that other player from that other side got away with more than my team or my player was allowed to get away with - more often than not, this is just a perception based on bias for your team or player.

.

Serena is humiliating herself. Naomi Osaka won, the penalties did not change the result - the rants changed what should have been a great moment for Naomi into something she felt she should apologise for. The game will be better for not allowing any player to act as Williams is acting regardless of gender. If this means more men are pulled up for acting like Serena, then this will be a good outcome.

10 best women's tennis players of all time
Sept 2018
: https://www.google.com/am...-.10632315
😊
and top ranking goes to Serena Williams
👇
1. Serena Williams owns the greatest weapon in the history of women's tennis: her serve. Combine that with her overall power game and unrelenting determination, and you have the most dominant women's player ever. With her victory over sister Venus in the Australian Open final early Saturday, she now has 23 Grand Slam titles in the Open era, breaking a tie with Steffi Graf for the most of all time. She also accomplished the Serena Slam of 2002-2003 when she won, in order, the French Open, Wimbledon, U.S. Open and Australian Open. Williams also has battled through illness and injuries that looked to derail her career. But at age 35 she's still going strong.
(and her sister Venus is at number 8)
:
https://en.m.wikipedia.or...a_Williams
World No. 1 ranked players
Country Player Weeks
total
USA Venus Williams (3) 11
USA Serena Williams 57
BEL Kim Clijsters 10

so inspite of all the cartoon debates about the racist and ill timed austrlian cartoon of serena Williams, no one can logically degrade her as an african americsn/black woman who has supremely placed the u s on the top of sports world as a supreme tennis player, white, black, or otherwise.
🌎
I truly wish opponent miss Osaka the best, and heck even she is not white. (although the racist cartoon depicts her as looking white.....on first, second, third and etc glance.)

and heck if the afore mentioned depiction of miss Osaka is not racist and insulting in content then those who continue to justify the caricature of Serena are lost in an racist abyss.
and as we're seeing and witnessing here, a truly exposed racist would rather eat a kernel of dog shit than admit to being wrong. the hilarious part of it all is the futile and self degrading level that some go through in attempts to justify their racist mindset.
oh well one day the pseudo supremacist will stfu after they discover the lost kernel of truth.

Racism 101'
Controversial cartoon depicts Serena Williams as 'angry black woman,' Naomi Osaka as white blonde



excerpt:
the depiction of Williams as a supersized, stereotypical “angry black woman” and the Haitian-Japanese Osaka as a white woman with blond hair has been roundly slammed as racially insensitive and offensive.

While Williams is drawn as a furious, overly bulky woman caught midtantrum — evoking a number of racial stereotypes — her opponent has been transformed into a slim Gwyneth Paltrow type.
😬
by the way white racist have been proven to be mentally ill, and now many are showing signs of ocular optical disabilities. seems it's being proven by a few wanna be right volks here.
racist morons often suffer ocular trauma that caused inability to perceive visual reality..... a yet to be understood type of blindness.

I'm not sure it is the majority, but either way truth is not determined by popular opinion. You keep insisting that Naomi Osaka is portrayed as "white" or "white looking" in the cartoon. Yet a simple comparison of the skin tones used by the artist begs to differ. Naomi's tone is depicted as darker than the white chair umpire and with a typically 'Japanese' pose and demeanor. Everytime you link to an article that says Naomi is depicted "white" you don't strengthen any argument, you just expose another who is projecting something that isn't there.

what you are expressing makes all the sense in the world TO YOU!
however until you come to the u s, take some courses in racial disparity, white priviledge, historical effects of the terroristic kkk and violent white supremacist, the efforts of the racially biased educational system to undereducated and underfund academic institutions for black children, the disney, Warner brothers racist cartoons fed to black and brown children, the history of police brutality and the multi amounts of unwarranted deaths of black men and (most times) innocent young black males at the hands and guns of over zealous (many times--->) racist cops , the biased judicial system that almost always (90% the time) exonerate killer cops,
you will always be blinded to the truth.

the disparaging way people like Serena Williams, former first lady Michelle Obama has been depicted as ugly, unitelligent, stupid, subhuman, ranting.unequal unappealing appearances compared,to whites and being the fodder for analytical discussions and cruel laughter.
the racist white citizens of the u s have thrown their monkey shit in the faces of people of color, (mexicans, many asian groups, jewish people and native indian americans) for decades.
so if you are thinking the media is being paranoid, perhaps you need to update the lens of your limited and unaware mindset.

seems you'd have to be black/african american to understand my pov.
and no I do not see racism everywhere in my day to day life, but I see it more than a lot of it here from a few of the orgers.
note:
please know that I'm sure that you are a nice person, and that u alone are not responsible for the ugliness put upon blacks by racist supremacist just because you are white. i'd never paint you that ugly.

Just because one does not see racism everywhere doesn't mean that they are a white supremacist. Sweeping generalisations and divisive mindsets can be just as dangerous as racism.

what you are expressing makes all the sense in the world TO YOU! however until you come to the u s, take some courses in racial disparity, white priviledge, historical effects of the terroristic kkk and violent white supremacist, the efforts of the racially biased educational system, the disney, Warner brothers racist cartoons fed to black and brown children, the history of police brutality and the multi amounts of unwarranted deaths of black men, innocent young black males, then you will always be blinded to the truth. the disparaging way people like Serena Williams, former first lady Michelle Obama has been depicted as ugly, unitelligent, lazy, stupid, subhuman, unequal to whites and fodder for analytical discussions as well as cruel laughter. however seems you'd have to be black/african american to understand my pov. and no I do not see racism everywhere in my day to day life, but I see it more than a lot here from a few of the orgers.

I have lived in the US and know all about the origins of racism over there. I am totally aware (and against) all of the above and I have been for many years. I know that racism is embedded in our culture(s), there is no need to convince me about that fact. But I also know that as a result, people often quickly draw the wrong conclusions and end up linking racism with almost anything. This mindset only serves to maintain division amongst people. The cartoon is also a reminder that people (including african-americans) cannot easily see a black person as equal. The majority sees a 'black' person as a victim (or target) that one should not laugh about in the same way that most people would naturally laugh about if they were a 'white' person. Real freedom will happen when anyone of any colour will be able to laugh at anyone in the same natural way without the colour of their skin even coming to mind.

I was not aware of this plus it is not clear who her offensive rant is about in her previous post or whether it is was part of the article she cited as there were no inverted commas.

please be aware:
when i key in words to express my pov, they are always my own.
if and when i post an article or post words other than my own, i always post the source/link.....
it is a rule that is within the rules of the p&r form.
