Should Serena have to say sorry to the judge and the rivals?

About this year’s US Open between Serene Williams and Nomi Osake is the least talked about in tennis. No articles about the victory of Osaka, on its way from the tennis origins to the finals of the US Open. The main thing was Serena’s argument with the judge and a few later discussions with him during the match. Although Serena is sentenced with a very small amount of money, many people feel that the punishment should be much greater and that she must apologize to the judge and the rivals.

Congrats,  Nomi Osaka, you were excellent in final. I wish you good luck on next tournament.

  1. Isn’t it strange that when female athletes speak up and out and throw a tantrum we demonize them, but when the male athletes do much worse we idolize them. It is 2018 and time for attitudes to change and stop the double standard. Way to go Serena. I also am sorry that Osaka had her moment of triumph messed up but there is never a “good” time to speak up against injustices.

  2. In my view Serena did not realize that famous old saying “What does not kill make me only makes me stronger.” By acting the way she did playing the role “I am the best.” or “Do you know who I am?” she did not focus on adjusting her tennis game as use the penalties as a way of showing “Me versus the world” is why I am the best tennis player.

    Sports are based on controversy like Serena’s temper tantrum took away Naomi’s dream come true that she is first Japanese tennis player to win a tennis major title.

  3. I do not see how the umpire did anything wrong. He saw an incident of coaching and issued a warning. It does not matter whether he was right in his observation or not – which was what Serena claimed. Even if she thought that the umpire was wrong, all she had to do was make sure that nothing of the sort happened at any future point. Had she done that, the incident would have been quietly forgotten about.

    She also has no claim to make about sexism. The umpire is known to be strict about this and has reprimanded players and coaches in the past, both men and women.

    In a word – Serena is completely in the wrong about this, and it was inexcusable for her to ruin the occasion for her opponent – as she eventually realized.
