Chris Evert said on the air, before all this happened, that Serena was being coached from the stands. Specifically, her coach was telling her to rush the net, which she began doing.

It puts the lie to her denial.
Her coach said they was cheating. It was obvious she was telling porkies. The coach isn't going to start giving out hand signals without her knowledge and approval.

She isn't the only one doing though. She should have just accepted she got caught and moved on. Her reaction was simply bizarre. To demand an apology from the ref is simply ridiculous.

International tennis referees are not happy with the treatment of Ramos. They are thinking about forming a union and boycotting Serena's matches unless she apologies for her disgraceful behaviour. I say 'Just Do It'.
Her coach said that he (not they) was cheating. But he also said that he didn't know if Serena saw him. Chris Evert said she did, which is why I posted it. Serena is FOS.
It doesn't matter if she was aware of it or not.

Except in impeaching her comments to the umpire, which is the subject of the entire thread.

Her coach was violating the rule by his efforts, whether she heard them or not. It's weak, but that's the rule. They should probably do away with it.

This was pretty much the sum of her response when asked for a statement during the femi-retard was on McEnroe for not acquiesing that Williams was the "greatest tennis player ever".

This thread has to be one of the most hilarious reads on this shithole.

Are there any posters here not a middle-aged white guy?

Having a blond tennis player as the winner of the final in the comic was the capper. It looks like something out of the 1920s.
Google a picture of Naomi Osaka, idiot.
She doesn’t look like the cartoon drawing of her. At all. The big lips on Serena look like a classic racist caricature to me.
All Negroes look alike. The drawing is clearly a drawing of a Negro, therefore it looks like her.

As I read the rule, shich I quoted early in the thread, it does.

And it is possible that she and the coach both realized independently that she should be rushing the net. I understand they both know something abut tennis.

The women also get paid the same for less work. Its just shocking sexism.

Yes. Why are coaching and coaching abuse called so much more often against women than men when generally it seems the men misbehave more?

I think that just tells you that men get fined more for bad behaviour because they engage in bad behaviour more. It doesn't tell you anything about whether there's a double standard or not.
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.
