WTA calls for equal treatment of players, on-court coaching

Serena Williams- Sexism claim is a red herring – Serena Williams should apologise after overshadowing Naomi Osaka's big moment

Serena Williams already paid a hefty price for the events which transpired on court during the women's singles final of the U.S. Open. It was a controversial match, which ended with what should have been a triumphant moment for 20-year-old Osaka tarnished by accusations of sexism and boos from the crowd. It was a scene that would be remembered for many years to come: it was the champion who was being consoled.

In her post-match news conference Williams said she was she "was not being coached" and that she "did not understand" why Mouratoglou would say he was doing so.

Williams was then given another violation for smashing her racket, costing her a point. This prompted Williams to address him. It was the breaching of this divide that anxious so many during Nick Kyrgios' second-round victory at the tournament, but it is every bit as troubling to hear a top player threaten an official with a career sanction over their application of the rules.

Osaka - who was born in Japan and raised in America - has climbed to a career-best seventh in the world rankings after her win in NY. "I am hoping to guide her to prevent that as much as I can". They comment on her body and critique her furious rants on court as an indictment on her character.

Kokkinakis took a pass when asked when asked whether he believed chair umpires acted differently towards male and female players, a central contention of Williams.

Kim reportedly complained about the USA negotiating in bad faith and regretted the doubts raised about his commitment to peace. North Korea's message has been delivered to White House National Security Adviser John Bolton , Seoul said.

In an interview with GQ, it was noted that one of the first things she mentioned was Overwatch, a popular video game. Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Supervisor Tom Barnes said he had little choice but to "declare an immediate default".

And her so-called meltdown will not be her undoing, nor will it be her legacy.

From there, Williams summoned the tournament referee to the court and said male tennis players were not punished for similar offences.

Williams was handed three code violations - and docked a point and then a game - in her 6-2, 6-4 loss to Naomi Osaka in the Flushing Meadows final. There's no such thing as a ideal role model.

Many, Ings included, believe Ramos followed the rule book to the letter - and should be lauded for having the courage to call the violations as he saw them.

The National Hurricane Center said Florence's maximum sustained winds Friday evening were estimated to be 65 miles per hour . Most of the models are now showing Florence having a direct and major impact to the East Coast in the upcoming week.

During the trophy presentation after the final, Williams reaffirmed her role model status. Williams received her first violation on Saturday for receiving coaching.

"Let's give everyone the credit where credit's due and let's not boo anymore", she told the crowd. We will get through this.

After a tense and flawed final, Osaka and Williams showed that it should have been a handsome moment between a young player and her tennis idol. I'm not a Serena fan. I was just so stressed and I kept calling my sister, my poor sister. "She felt humiliated by the warning", said the Frenchman.

Osaka is the only women's tennis player in Japan to be listed as a high performer to be supported as a potential medalist in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Williams continued to argue that it was not fair that she be accused of cheating and mentioned that tennis officials had done that before as she held back tears.
