Czech Tennis Star Fires At Serena Williams for US Open Behavior

Williams smashed her racket on the court earning her a second code violation

The beefy Slovak overcame the effects of jet-leg and pesky local qualifier Nao Hibino 6-1, 5-7, 6-3 to set up a potential slug-fest with Osaka in her first match since becoming Japan's first-ever grand slam singles champion.

On the court, Williams fought back against the chair umpire Carlos Ramos' call, and in a news conference after the match, blasted his ruling as "sexist".

Over the course of the fortnight, Osaka defeated Laura Siegemund, Julia Glushko, Aliaksandra Sasnovich, Aryna Sabalenka, Lesia Tsurenko and 2017 US Open runner-up Madison Keys to claim her place in the final. She should reflect on her behaviour and apologise to Naomi Osaka, who wasn't able to properly savour her victory, and to Mr Ramos, who was only doing his job.

In an interview with Australia's "The Project", the tennis pro responded to the controversy, and addressed a recent admission from coach Patrick Mouratoglou that he was coaching.

"He said he made a motion", Williams told the Australian television program, "The Project", of the incident, according to a preview clip released Sunday.

Ms. Williams is an abuser of umpires and has never suffered the appropriate consequences for her actions because of her star status.

Williams received three violations during the U.S. Open final following clashes with the umpire that drew both praise and criticism from fans and stars.

Williams claims she was treated harshly because she is a woman, whereas a male player would have been given more leeway. Despite the drama surrounding the match, the tennis veteran displayed sportsmanship by giving her opponent encouraging words as the crowd booed the outcome.

Strycova also hinted that she found it odd for the WTA Tour and US Tennis Association to release statements in support of Williams. The third violation cost her a game when she called the umpire a thief.

"I say it with sadness, but he is an umpire who scrutinises me more and who fixates on me more", Nadal said after the match. When are you going to give me my apology? "I've played here for many years and got to the final once, so this tournament is very special to me". "You're a thief too".

On Sept 12, Ramos said that after the match, he was "fine, given the circumstances", Time magazine reported.

Martina Navratilova, an 18-time Grand Slam singles champion, also criticized Williams.
