Her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, had been accused of giving hand signals illegally in the first set.

Mouratoglou said after the game: 'Not once in my life have I ever been called a coaching violation'.

On ESPN Mouratoglou later admitted he was coaching, but insisted that his player had not seen him and also maintained that Osaka had also received coaching from the box, which is against the rules.
Jesse Jackson and AL Sharpton will help, I'm sure..

I'm just confused - did she really pull her 'gender card' during a womens event?

She was playing a female bracket against a female opponent and the judge treated her poorly because she is a woman?


I just cannot wrap my head around that one.
...but its tennis - tennis is just ping pong played with both competitors standing on the table


It's just another flavor of sportsball - blah blah blah - help me I'm being oppressed in my multimillion dollar job

When it said "comes to blows" I was looking for a punch, a kick, at least "passin a few licks" as my clients say in Tennessee. That wasn't nothing but a bit of roostering and some trash talking.

actually, I read several articles and was wondering why she hadn't pulled the race card. When I saw her opponent on the news it clicked: she COULDN'T go there....

so....she whines about not cheating (her coach admitted they were); and, cries about having sand in her Hoo.

Worthless, petty, narcissistic, entitled beee-yotch. She should run for Obama's past position.

To be clear...

Williams has successfully won every major tennis award for ever., including 24 majors.

She has more wins than any female player and probably will never lose that record.

She has a net worth of over 200 million dollars.

Her husband is a millionaire in his own right.

Her coach admitted to passing signs from off court and paid a substantial fine.

AND this is the way she acts when caught cheating..

She probably will run for office,, and collect another 100 million or so.
