Serena Williams was fined $17,000 for three code of conduct violations after she lashed out at the chair umpire during the 2018 U.S. Open women’s championship on Saturday.

Japan’s Naomi Osaka, 20, beat Williams in straight sets to become the first Japanese and Haitian tennis player to win a Grand Slam title.

Williams was fined $10,000 for calling chair umpire Carlos Ramos a “liar” and a “thief.” She was also hit with a $4,000 fine for violating the no coaching rule and a $3,000 fine for breaking her tennis racket on the court.

Williams was livid when Ramos warned her about hand signals sent by her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, but Williams insisted the hand gesture was Mouratoglou’s way of urging her to “come on.”

“I don’t cheat to win, I’d rather lose,” Williams told Ramos.

Ramos took a point away from Williams when she broke her tennis racket after missing a backhand shot into the net, which allowed Osaka to get back on serve at 3-2 in the 2nd set.

“You stole a point from me! You’re a thief too!” Williams yelled at Ramos, who took away a game from Williams.

Williams went on to lose the 2nd set 6-4.

The money came out of Williams’ runner-up check of $1.85 million. Osaka took home $3.85 million in championship prize money.

Most tennis fans agreed that Williams would have lost the match regardless of the violations. Osaka was just too powerful.

But Williams accused the chair umpire of penalizing her because she is a woman.

The men’s champion Novak Djokovic disagreed that women are treated differently.

“I think men and women are, you know, treated in this way or the other way depending on the situation,” he said on Sunday. “It’s hard to generalize things, really. I don’t see it’s necessary really to debate that.”

    Look, we know what they did. What he did.
    Agassi was on GMA this morning and said the sam ref has NEVER did that before and has been called everything but a child of God. Also no one in the whole tournament, including the woman Serena beat on Thursday, was penalized for DIRECTLY talking to the coach, nevertheless hand movements from the coach.
    Shout out to Naomi. I know that was hard sis.
    Once Serena lost that point Naomi looked so sad, like she knew shat was wrong and as much as she wanted to win, she didn’t want to that way.
    Look how the narrative has changed, that cartoon by Mark Knight is racist and sexist.
    Stop disrespecting black women and Naomi is HALF Haitian, y’all know it. She will keep reminding your assess

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Serena can’t keep her cool no more! So she needs to retire, I mean she came and she conquered and yes was and maybe is still good at it but she is older now and maybe she needs to pass the tennis racket to others bcuz she needs to take a seat and maybe even coach now but umma yesss u can’t win everytime

  • mona q

    I cant stand them “FOLK”… I tried too. But when you SPEAK up you dead azzz penalized… SMDH… no matter what they act like WE cant express! I see if she was throwing up crip signs and spreading hate thus being disruptive. Never mind….

  • Soda

    Tom Brady is 5 years older than Serena. Should he pass the football to others and retire from the Patriots?

  • Kanyade

    Australia. Not surprised.

  • WhoKnew

    I’m not sure what’s going on but it appears there are some type of “tennis politics” going on here. There was the issue with what she wears during these tourneys and being told what she cannot wear. That was some type of red flag and now this.

    Also, I saw the racist cartoon and it was beyond uncalled for. Still this idiot probably won’t lose his job because it somehow will be protected under “freedom of speech”.

    None of us should have to lay down to racism and be forced to live our lives differently. But Serena has been in the game for a minute. She has a beautiful daughter who she clearly adores so it just may be time for Serena to retire and go out on top with dignity. Don’t let them scar you or tarnish the career and legacy you’ve spent years building. Go out on top and go be a great mommy to your daughter.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I never said she wasn’t good at it but when U start to lose your cool and U start to react to every action then maybe if U can’t control your emotions and or your anger were it can effect your career then yes U should pass it on…. I’m just saying

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She has the $17K, athletes get fined all the time. I understand all the rhetoric about losing gracefully, but I completely understand how athletes get caught up in their emotions. I don’t watch sports (or really care) so I don’t know who is right or wrong, the point is– I can understand her frustration in that moment.

    But while we are on Serena, I see she still has some of her pregnancy weight. Which validates what I have been saying for a long time about this snapback phenom. Your post baby body is heavily predicated on your genes and/or your surgeon. I wish celebrity women were more honest about this. I read an article a little while ago about postpartum depression and the impact of social media.

    Serena… Go on ahead and retire while you’re still on top hun… because they are trying to tarnish your legacy!!

  • BingBangBoom

    Was this outburst additional promo for Nike? Yall know that she is apart of the new campaign. Plus Nike took a dip in numbers and yall say she was about to lose anyway. Serena is my girl but I never know what to think these days.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I agree. She is only saying this because Rena is a woman .

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    People are trying so hard to bring her down.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    THANK YOU!

    People are so quick to tell women, especially, Black entertainers to go ahead and retire!

    But, this is their job and career, and it’s not about the money, money is a perk, but Serena STILL loves playing tennis!!

    They have sacrificed their childhood, teen years, college for most, and train or rehearse, manage publicity and promotion, scandals, lies, and awful truths!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I couldn’t believe she did this well!

    If she should retire, what about all the female tennis players or top seed who lose, or those who didn’t make it to the quarter finals, or never have made it!

  • monique

    $1.85 and lose, $3.85 to win, imagine that beingde posited into your account for playing a match of tennis.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly!!

  • monique

    And she’s an athlete, has been all her life, and still has that baby weight. Women need to stop going under the knife ineccessarily, could be the last time.

  • Carrington

    While I think they DO target her… I also feel that he was trying to coach her from the stands. Not sure if SHE realized it, but he definitely was. AT one point, he held his hands apart and then moved them in together and immediately, Serena brought Naomi to the net and starting winning points.

  • monique

    But if she bows out now, won’t it be like giving in and letting them win?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    They will always be out to get Serena, and yes, she shouldn’t blow up, but that’s far better than smiling through, and that shat eat you up on the inside, which can literally make you sick!

    Serena is more randomly tested than any other female top seed player because of how well she plays for her age! The umpires don’t give her jack! The comments people post are almost always, cruel and hate-filled!

    But, people better let it go because the face of women’s tennis will continued to be colorized!

    Venus Williams
    Serena Williams
    Sloane Stephens
    Madison Keys
    Naomi Osaka…and others…

    Serena will leave the game on her terms! The “You’re a Thief” resonated very loudly, and I personally, applauded!

  • Renee26

    EGOT??

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yes!

    Serena is fierce, and you better believe, she will slay more before she retires, and when she does, she will continue to be relevant.

    It’s what [Serena] Greatness and Excellence does!

  • Renee26

    Ok… Hey!!

  • Faithz

    Thanks for that, and the cartoon show exactly how many feel about a woman of color being on top. And this just goes straight to the Point that Serena has been saddle with this kind of Racism, and Sexism Her entire life. And it make me feel like the UK are bitter because their Player was beat by Serena, and the Country is bitter over it. Serena has given a many beat downs on the Tennis Courts around the World , and they are Bitter, pressed and mad as He!!. Over it.

  • Faithz

    Serena no one can give you a sure fire formula for success, but I can give you a
    formula for failure try to please everybody all the Dang time.

  • PhillyFacts

    Yes, and most importantly Angela got killed last night… (Tears) lol

  • Kimocha

    Emmy… Grammy… Oscar… Tony = EGOT

  • WhoKnew

    You have a point. Still, I would rather not look at it as bowing out and letting them win. Rather, I just want her to continue to have respect for herself and respect for her game and not go out like a Retardi B. I know it’s 2 different art forms but Serena is above all of this. Yes, she blew up but you will never see her in public fighting another woman. I still say she has achieved the highest accolades and now the most important person in her life needs her more than tennis does.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Serena’s worth is close to 200 million….she just pocketed 1.83 million minus 17,000 so she’s gonna be just fine. No pun intended! I don’t understand why folks wanna impede her Greatness.

  • Miss Thang

    it’s not about the money. It’s a matter of principle.

  • Miss Thang

    A sprite at my plantation was just talking about “Serena ruined the moment for Naomi.” I was like, that’s not true. Serena defended her and wanted her to have her moment, but Serena is also allowed to express how she feels if what is happening is unfair. Then this fool had the nerve to say she has a bad attitude because she destroyed her tennis racket. Are you kidding me?? How many players have thrown down their rackets in frustration??

  • isis Osiris
  • Faithz

    And once the storm is over, Serena you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive.
    You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s Of life is all about. Your Greatness in Tennis is something that make many People hate you as a Person, and as a Athletic No matter how you slice it.

Envious and mean spirited people are all over the place, and not Just here at “SR” but all over the net, and the media. I listen to Mary Carillo , Former Professional Tennis Player and while she loves you as the Sports Champ You are She still sided with Ramos, and said he was right, dah, dah, dah

  • Faithz

    In short many want you to fall back and shut the heck all the way up. They feel you are a black woman with to much power on and off the Tennis Court. And for the sake of Me, and My Common Sense I wonder why so many people of color feel like you are supposed to roll over rover and throw in the gloves because You lost to a Much Younger
    Haitian-Japanese girl! Don’t they Know that Things like losing help to Motivate you to even higher levels, While you are still working hard on getting back in shape ~

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Until someone from up top at the U.S. Open stands up for Serena this will happen time and time again…”They” are upset that she is bashing them about her getting tested for drugs all the time and trying to depict her in a bad way…”they” feel like she should step and fetch and be quiet like a good slave….but this isn’t the NFL or NBA where she signs a contract and represents a team…she represents herself and she is her own brand…Im proud of her…we all know it wrong what they did…

  • EMILY POST

    Damn that was cringe worthy she was really flipping out. … watching her randomly bringing up her daughter in this temper tantrum rant cause she was losing and seemed to be under a lot of pressure compared to the 20 year old.. … and the people trying to roll with her on this one but IDK.
    She tried to play it off in the end but that was wow.

  • wonderwoman

    I wish she didn’t lose her cool, but I can understand how she felt. In this same tornament, they penalized a player for changing her shirt on the court(she had a sports bra on). They were men players doing the same thing no penalty whatsoever. Yesterday in the men finals on serve they went over the time limit, and no warning at all for them. So I can see what she mean by a double standard.

  • Faithz

    Yes She’s back , and getting better with each day. She made it back into the top Twenty, and she have many shaking in their Tennis shoes because they know she has been known to blow in and cause many Tennis upsets.

  • Faithz

    Serena The only way that we can live, is if we continue to grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed to down right Blatant Lies where a Umpire swears his eyes see what your eyes see. Patrick admitted to trying to Coach you But you never saw His Gesture, and You tried to defend yourself With all the Cards stacked against You, and many still feel like if you are a b!ack Female Tennis Player Serena like you are, you had better Fall back, and let what the White man says go as Gospel. . You stepped Forward and rightfully so. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it Serena Throw yourself, Just like You did , and You don’t have to be subjected to Mess when you feel you have been Wronged. They passed Freedom of speech many moons ago.
    You have a right to Defend yourself if you feel you have been Falsely Accused of doing something wrong ~

  • Li-Wright

    She’s stressed. She needs to go on vacation with her family. Cool down.

  • Li-Wright

    Well something was definitely off with her. She was like an ANGRY BLACK WOMAN with that ref.

  • Li-Wright

    She Still made $1million from that finals match. She should take the money and laugh all the way to the bank.

  • Ebony Starr

    This is a culmination of 20 years of unfair treatment. The fact that she has a daughter now makes her want to fight to change things for her and other girls and women. I watch Serena and Venus both me subjected to things in their careers. It can’t be easy especially for Serena. I have gone to US OPEN and the gate for them that I hear in the stands has made me want to cry.

  • Faithz

    Yes she did, and how sweet it is that many are bitter because she even made it to the US Open.

  • Faithz

    Our greatest glory is not in never falling, SERENE but in rising every time we fall.

    I posted that Osaka only won by default on The Daily Mail and got 200+ Dislikes!! LMAO!…. They hating on meee! :-D

  • Jennifer

    All hail Queen Serena!!! I applaud her for standing firm in her beliefs. Nothing’s worse than being accused of being a cheater when you’re the fiercest winner. She’s worked hard and honestly to become what she has and I don’t blame her one bit for checking that umpire. She never has and never will have to cheat to win. Fines and giving Osaka an entire game point was much too harsh. She’s going to kill it next year!

  • hottlanta

  • EMILY POST

    Plus I believe Osaka Coach use to be Serenas… And if I watched her HBO documentary correctly she was not happy about him coaching other players. So it has to be equally as hard and stressful to lose to then new younger star your old coach is coaching. Probably sharing all your moves with the new younger player…Osaka said she wanted to play Serena… and she beat Serena before, so thats an interesting element. Plus Osaka was taking out players winning in just two sets and I think her serve was only broke one time maybe. Some people dont take losing well.

    wendyosefo What I’m not here for is the slander against Queen #Serena because an umpire who CLEARLY suffers from fragile masculinity cannot take a woman speaking up for herself!! As women, we are constantly asked to mute ourselves, to be more demure, to be less “aggressive” … AND as black women if we dare challenge the status quo or speak with authority we are seen as “angry” or “loud”. Listen, if you can’t take a woman speaking with authority that says more about YOU than her!! How about instead of complaining about our “tone” maybe you should stop being weak AF and instead try leveling up!! ?????????? #ISaidWhatISaid #ProfessorOSpeaks?

  • What???

    THEY SHOULD TEST HER AGAIN FOR STEROIDS SHE LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS HAVING ROID RAGE AGAIN. Serena acted like an ANIMAL and knew she was going to lose. She lost to Osaka before in another tournament so Osaka has HER NUMBER. She slammed her racquet and acted like a monster and black women should be embarrassed at her poor sportsmanship. Acting like an animal does not mean you’re strong, independent and equal to men. You bytches really don’t understand masculinity. Serena needs to get mental counseling and go to charm school instead of acting like she’s fighting for women’s justice. She’s a LIAR, cheated during the match and even her OWN COACH admitted it. The white man isn’t holding any black woman back. You guys are pathological. Osaka isn’t white so Serena couldn’t say they wanted the white girl to win. The civil rights era hustlers got ya’ll brains demented.

  • bella28498 .

    I’m not even upset at your point of view. I am definitely mortified by the masculine behavior alooooot of black women display. A lot of black women do compare themselves to men, I don’t ever want to be compared to a man. A lot of black women are big as men and have more tattoos than a man. I see your angle.

  • IAmLegend

    Thats because Osaka did not win by default. The drama happened toward the end of the match. Osaka even let Serena win the points back that she lost so that she could feel like she beat her fairly. Some of y’all acting like the match ended when Serena got the penalties. Maybe you should actually watch the match.

  • IAmLegend

    What truth? This is “group think” like I’ve never seen before lol smh

  • Eileen

    tell novak to shut his little sissy mouth he has no business commenting on a women when he is a man . knucklehead!

  • IAmLegend

    So if the reporters ask him a question about it he’s not allowed to answer it because he’s a man???

  • Eileen

    SHUT UP!!! Really??!! Serena is angry because the knucklehead coach was on steriods of stupidity! She was defending her integrity! What would you have done

  • What???

    A few years ago Serena claimed she could beat any professional male tennis player in the top 200. She played a pickup game versus a guy who was ranked 203rd. She didn’t even come close after he smoked cigars and drank the night before. He wrecked her. Serena’s play is technically equivalent to a mid-level NCAA male college tennis player. God made men and women different not equal so this feminist craziness has to stop with black women following the white lezbos.

  • SunSoy

    Serena needs to retire her career is over.

  • Eileen

    what the H-ll does her size hav todo with defending her integrity from what she pecieved as a slight. i guess ALLL black women should be small dainty blonde and white?!

    Thank you…mr mac- n -row acts like white spoiled trash on the courts and white folks reveled in it. Serena is defending her integrity and we call her an angry black women.!

  • SunSoy

    Serena Williams career is over!

    She won be default everyone knows Serena plays from behind and then slaughters the competition. The ref gave the other BLACK player the game by default. Yes she is BLACK!

  • Eileen

    True!!! I love the William sisters their father took them from the deepest part of the hood to world class fame and fortune that WILL not be matched!!! Notice it was the father! Black men go home to your families!!!

    Serena was wrong and is ruining her career and image. There is no comming back from this. And you can’t blame sexism! Naomi looked up to Serena and that is how she acts. Sloan Stevens was right about Serena.

  • Eileen

    I AGREE! she had a right to defend herself no world champ takes that mess lying down! She earned the RIGHT to be angry and speak her mind!!!

    I love th William sisters

  • bella28498 .

    She had a good run, just my personal opinion her net worth is over 100 million, she had a baby and got married she’s well into her 30’s she should’ve taken a 2 year break or retire. Know when to exit on top.

  • Eileen

    The tennis world has a hard time accepitng the fact that two little girls from the hood made it to the top in their white realm of exclusion! and they had a BLACK daddy who was responsible for their success!!!

  • bella28498 .

  • Eileen

    I agree!

  • bella28498 .

    Thank you for bringing this up. This is one of the reason she is called an ape, jokes about roid rage, and ppl think she’s too masculine because she really do compare herself to men. A lady should never do that.

  • Eileen

    I can agree with you until we get to the colonization part sometimes it is a matter of non interest

  • Eileen

    what is an EGOT?

  • Eileen

    she is not responsible for the entire race of black tennis players she only do what she can do. In horse racing every horse must run its own race. and NO I a not calling her a horse! I love my Serena and Venus!!

  • Eileen

    jon mac-n-row didnt quit he continued to act like a fool and they loved him!

  • Faithz

    As Quiet as it’s kept, Sasha Bajin Serena Ex Hitting Partner wanted to be more than a hitting partner. He wanted to be Serena Coach, and he sure in the hell do have a lot to say here lately. Sashe is Osaka Hitting Partner now Perhaps she will let him become her Coach.

  • What???

    I would’ve HUMBLED myself and realized one call would not have changed the outcome of the match.

  • Eileen

    I Love my Serena!!! The Greatest athelete of all time!!!

  • abby500

    I did a little research before commenting. Serena was woofing abt the men getting away with arguing, but I looked up John McEnroe and I stopped counting after 20 fines. The men get penalized and fined too. Her coach admitted that he was coaching her from the stands ( that is cheating) and what did her daughter have to do with the match? Serena is going through something (just like cardi). She for sure was trying to play the “me too” and “I’m a mom” card and it was BS. She knew she was losing and freaked out and TOTALLY stole that girls moment. She needs to go away. She is soooo over the top with the “I’m a mom“ because she thinks that’s how she’s supposed to act. It’s ok not to spend EVERY waking moment with or thinking abt ur kids. And spazzing over everything thing relatrd to them. It’s not healthy.

  • bella28498 .

    I agree Serena freaked out and started squawking and feathers started flapping as a distraction because she knew the young fresh meat was going to win. She added all the extras so it could seem like the game was stolen from her. When you are an older woman, married with kids and talking about having blood clots just retire on top.

  • Faithz

    Sure it get rough sometimes, but life isn’t perfect things happen along the way.

  • Faithz

    Serena you have fought, hand , and foot You have gone through the “Valley” so to say, as well as struggled to
    get to where you are in the Game right now, You have been through a lot, and you have come out still intact that is a Blessing in itself.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

  • Faithz

    Preach to the closed minded Serena Haters with the air brains.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Except male players like McEnroe did much much worse than Serena ever has and she didn’t curse or call the umpire any foul names like McEnroe or Connors, but keep your blinders on if helps you feel better about yourself.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If you’re really a black person you need some serious help with self-hate and spotting racism.

  • Faithz

    Exactly I have watched the match twice, and it all went down hill when he accused her of being coached from the side lines. And to me if she did not get Patrick message then why want that Umpire believe her, He don’t want to believe her are hear her defense because he wanted her to not win, and he felt he would throw a m0nkey wrench into the play , and no one would be the wiser.

  • bella28498 .

    Roderick stfu u really think your weak criticism will stop the bum rush ???? or shall I say the truth? Noooope so stand down

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    You’re welcome

  • Faithz

    Yes she was, and she should have let three decades of black woman pressed syndrome wrap that tennis racket around Ramos little slack as.

  • bella28498 .

    You are the typical black beta male that don’t know a thing. You could never be a leader. If u gathered I have self hate because I said women are waaaay too masculine then u are a fool. Serena lost to another black woman and fools like u actually do compare Serena actions to other men ? which only validate my point. U can’t even compare her actions to other women tennis players just men stfu ma’am

  • Faithz

    Serena should have snatched Ramos by the leg and pulled him and that stand he sits on down to the ground and stomped on it.

  • Faithz

    Sashe was Serena Hitting Partner, He wanted to be her Coach, that is when they split, and he has been with Azarenka, Wozniak, and now Osaka, Less hope it last for him, since he has so much to say about Patrick Coaching from the side lines., and His as is coaching from the side lines as well Just haven’t been caught.

  • Faithz

    You are so right about that.

  • Faithz

    One thing is certain, Many like me will be watching to see how well Serena does going Forward. There are 15 are more Players ahead of Her , and I can’t wait to see if Serena goes any Higher on the Ranking Board.

    Her point is that the particular judge has issues with the William sisters and its true that there’s a double standard between men and women.

    You’re not much of a human being and the reason you spend so much time on social media is because no one wants you.

  • IAmLegend

    Well Fabio Fognini was fined $96,000 at the US Open last year and was banned from playing the next 2 Grand Slams for using profanity toward an umpire. We can pretend this is about Serena being targeted all day long but that umpire operated within his rights. Also, let’s stop bringing up players who played in the 70’s and 80’s because the rules of tennis have changed since then.

  • Faithz

    Djokovic Men Tennis Champ… drew the line at Ramos’s involvement, The last thing any athlete wants or any sport needs is for an Official to intrude on the outcome, particularly when a championship is on the line.
    I have my personal opinion that maybe the chair Umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit, especially in a Grand Slam final, Just maybe changed not maybe, but he did change the course of the match. It was, in my opinion, maybe Unnecessary. We all go through our emotions, especially when you’re fighting for a Grand Slam trophy.

  • IAmLegend

    Sasha is actually Osaka’s coach and has been for a while. But you’re right, he did want to be Serena’s coach and when he didn’t get promoted, he moved on. His experience with Serena has allowed him to coach Osaka on how to play her.

  • IAmLegend

    And honestly, that is what it came down to. The umpire made that situation more so about him than he should have. Yes, Serena went too far and yes he had every right to penalize her but he should have restrained himself. Grand Slam finals are like playing the super bowl. It is very stressful. This wasn’t a decision made because Serena was black or because she was a female, it was a decision made out of power and emotion.

  • bella28498 .

    How do u know how much time i spend on social media sway? How sway? How? U have no idea just acting like your single mother, emotional. Idc what u Think. Like I said your watered down weak criticism doesn’t trigger me…. have a good day ma’am

  • What???

    Humble yourself bro she got you. You gotta go back to the drawing board and be honest with yourself to re-evaluate your positions. Are you the son of a single mother? Maybe you have feminine habits without realizing it. Its very common nowadays just be flexible to evolve.

  • Faithz

    You are exactly right about that. Osaka will no doubt be # One by this time next year.

  • Anji

    Mc ‘spazzed” out regularly. We in the tennis world came to expect his foul tantrums, he was only fined for a miniscule percentage of the time. He was allowed to be a “bad boy”…awww. Ilie was called “NASTY” as a nickname for a reason. I ball girled for these folk and he had a foul, profane racist attitude all the dang time. Serena’s general comportment is that of a lady in a professional sport that historically mistreats Blacks.

  • Anji

    There are layers about the mentality of racism implied by the vulgar, Australian cartoon image of Serena, her angry moment and their vision of her opponent…who is pictured as a white woman.

  • Faithz

    I hear you we will all stay tuned for the next tennis match with Serena as she and Osaka move on from this ?

  • Anji

    Thanks for posting this.

  • Faithz

    Blinders I heard that because the umpire accused her like he could see where Serena eyes was at all times His as hated the though of Serena getting #24
    And he accused Her I see the US Tennis Association is agreeing with His ruling ?The thought of Serena Winning the Match was just to much for Ramos slack as ??

  • Faithz

    I notice there are Groupies who loves to double team the truth seekers like Us Rod ??

  • Faithz

    Preach?

  • Faithz

    For real?

  • Faithz

    She sure has and got money in the bank??

  • Faithz

    School the small minded ?

  • Faithz

    I sure hope you end up wrong about that
    We should be able to tell if we never see
    Her play anther match?

  • Faithz

    Exactly?

  • Faithz

    Co-signs ?

  • ZZZ

    Maybe people did shrugged their shoulders behind McEnroe tantrums but his ass got fined as well. In 1987 he was fined a total of $80,500 alone. No telling how much this man was fined throughout his career for throwing tantrums.

  • Faithz

    The haters are out in full force Especially for those who supports Serena ?This this to shall pass??

  • ZZZ

    I hated the crowd when they booed Naomi, like it was her fault that Serena loss. Naomi was rep both sides, her mother’s Japanese and her father Haitian (Black). I like Serena but I’m happy Naomi won. Everyone can’t be like Floyd and win every match….hehehe!

  • Faithz

    Serena been Fined more than any other Female in tennis I didn’t know that ??She has been able to pay the cost to be the Boss Lady??As well ??

  • bella28498 .

    ???????????????? funny thing is ppl will START the chat with me then act like I bothered them. I hand them their a z z everytime. My mental dexterity is no joke lmao @ be flexible to evolve

  • Li-Wright

    Ah-hah. It had to be SOMETHING that set her off. I thought maybe it was not getting sex at home….who knows? But to go off like that….and I’ve watched that video over and over and I flinch every time. You should see what Steve Smith says about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cTFguHi9E0

  • Li-Wright

    Do you have the link to that story.

  • IAmLegend

    Nah my money is still on Serena. She is #16 now and has no more points to defend until May of next year. I think she will be back at #1 by Wimbledon 2019.

  • Faithz
  • Faithz

    My Bet is on Serena as well!!

  • Faithz
  • colejk

    I agree & have been a tennis fan my whole life. Ramos def should’ve warned her that she was close to a game penalty when she told him he’d never work another one of her matches but he tried to maintain composure before being called a liar & a thief. As 1 of only 20+ gold badge tennis umpires in the world, he’s actually well known for being rigid about the rules & I get that it’s probably the ultimate insult to him. Very unfortunate.

  • Faithz

    The Crown was reacting to the Umpire, and Serena back and forth.

  • Faithz

    Naomi will be Just fine she got $3.8 Million to make her smile again real big. Serena will be fine as well. I think Serena has Learned a very Valuable Lesson, and will Judge the situations going forward from now on.

  • Faithz

    Off Topic: I can’t stand Mike Pense S quench eyed as.

  • Stan4NoOne

    Off topic: She really needs to stop those eyebrow treatments.

  • What???

    Getting fined is a virtue?? It’s like in the black community how going to jail makes you a hero. This is the female thug equivalent You’re screwed up in the head. Serena’s violence on the court should be condemned but you defend her violent behavior?? Serena acts like an animal with no shame crip walking on an international stage for the world to see. Have you no shame? She’s a pure niggah with her hoodrat self faking like she has class until times get tough. She got out of the ghetto but she’s still an unhappy ratchet ignorant WORKER not a boss. She’s the boss of nothing and has to play by THEIR rules no matter how much she’s paid. You must be an ignorant hoodrat yourself to defend unbecoming behavior like that “Faith”. Now Crawl back in your hole. GIT niggarette!! GIT!!!

  • Dun Dilly

    Simply: Some people hate to lose.

  • What???

    Now You need to humble yourself too Anybody can get got and no one should ever stop learning.

  • bella28498 .

    Nah I don’t need to humble anything when I’m not bothering anyone. Mess with me and your a z z will get handed to you.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I totally AGREE!

    People get caught up in “keeping up appearances” but as you stated, she was accused of being a “cheater,” which is way worst than an “outburst”…

    Had she said nothing, all we would have heard is that Serena “cheats, and that’s how she’s won ALL OF HER GRAND SLAMS!”

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I get your point, but for some or many people, it is an issue, unfortunately, in a world that isn’t always ideal, fair, or unbiased [humans, go figure]!

  • Faithz

    I have read you , and your Judgement on and about Serena is all wrapped in the Idea that if you are a woman of color you are supposed to fall back and not say Jack. Serena was bitter because she was accused of getting coached from the side line When she was trying to defend herself, and tell Ramos that she did not get the Gesture, But without a soft Warning He Charged her, and took her point anyway. That is when Serena went into Rage, I am not saying she should act that way, But she was Upset, and if that is what she had to do to get Relief, then so be it. While you call her Names and trash her That let me Know that your though Process isn’t Looking at the Bigger Picture, You and many know that he tried the exact same thing with Venus , and there’s a Tape on the other post about it. You want to talk about how Serena Look, and how shes dressed on court, and that is BS, You are acting just like the clown from the UK who drew the Sexist/Racist Picture of Serena stomping her Tennis Racket.

  • Faithz

    Other professionals have criticized both Ramos and Williams during that match; suggesting that Ramos could been more sensitive to Williams by overlooking the coaching signal and attempting to calm her down with a soft warning for umpire abuse before applying the game penalty, while Williams as a player should have been experienced enough not to lose control of her emotions as she was well aware of the potential for a third violation.The International Tennis Federation supported Ramos stating his decisions were in accordance with the Grand Slam Rule book Code of Conduct which players agree to adhere to specifically Article III: Rule P of the Grand Slam rule book which forbids players from coaching from the sidelines, are any contact with the Players at all.
    WHAT I AM DEFENDING Is why didn’t Ramos give Serena a soft Warning First because after all Serena stated that she did not get Her Coach Message from the side line because she wasn’t looking at Him at the time.
    PS
    I hope you and the SERENA HATERS are happy that the Tennis Federation sided with Ramos, I suppose that is a way of getting back at a Black Tennis player who has Won to many times, and made to much Money as a Black as Legend!!!!

  • Faithz

    You must be an ignorant hoodrat yourself to defend unbecoming behavior like that “Faith”. Now Crawl back in your hole. GIT niggarette!! GIT!!!
    PS
    See how dang Ignoramus yo as is. You are thinking Just like Ramos and the Tennis Federation , out of your as.

  • Faithz

    To Serena Many Haters, Tennis Federation, Ramos and all of those who have been Blessed enough to have Gotten Dragged, and Mopped across the Tennis Courts around the Globe, By Serena William Power, and Especially to those who have gotten their Tennis Shoes beat off their feet , and out to the Parking Lot By Serena Williams..
    AND ESPECIALLY You What??? With Your No Life having rat tat, tat hating as….Read Them And Weep, are do what You do Best Trash Serena from now on because that is all you can do….https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_career_achievements_by_Serena_Williams

  • Faithz

    So true!!!!

  • Faithz

    You are exactly Right about that, What is a loose goose with no common sense.

  • Faithz

    You are a sore loser, Serena losing the Match, and being fined has all got you slobbing , and bitter as all get out, and it shows.

  • Faithz

    Yea sticks and stones hurt but talk don’y bother Serena ,because if it did she would not have been playing in the Match The other day it would have been some blonde with blue eyes.

  • Faithz

    Leave Rod along its not Serena Fans Fault Serena wasn’t born with Blonde Hair and Blue eyes…

  • Faithz

    Serena is still Winning , even with the Cards stacked against her the last time I checked
    Serena is the Highest paid Female Tennis Player
    Yo as can stay hurling insults, Money Talks and BS walks.

  • Faithz

    Most Marketable Female Athletes Serena Number One, and yes People are not like that as well!!

  • Faithz

    What Grand slam champion Serena earned in Endorsements was enough for her to top the list of Highest Paid for the third straight year despite not playing competitively for 14 months after revealing in January 2017 that she was pregnant with her first child.

  • Faithz

    Serena Should have Controlled Herself But she didn’t so What!!!

  • Faithz

    Tell that clown, the Umpire should have called Serena over and gave her a Warming But he didn’t.

  • Faithz

    Osaka is a good player , and may have won anyway but the coach should have warned Serena and it seem like He was deliberate in not giving Serena a Warning, he wanted Serena Upset to the place that she would get mad. We will see if his Logic will work going forward!

  • Li-Wright

    That’s interesting. She’s not the ONLY black woman in tennis. She’s the top woman in tennis and I just wonder if maybe the Europeans don’t like that she’s in the game?

  • Faithz

    Serena Launched her Fashion Collection Serena in May. After Collection for HSN and Nike this is Her first Solo Compilation that includes dresses, denim and jackets.

  • Cannelle

    People like that love seeing her fail. smh crabs in a barrel.

  • Faithz

    You are Exactly right about that, Many act like we can all decide on how we want to look after we are born when we know that is left up to the Almighty. And those working with a Real Brain can see straight through the haters bs.

  • Faithz

    That Commenter is a Lost cause, and they are a Backwards thinker, they are bitter , and pressed because Serena wasn’t born white with blonde hair and blue eyes.

  • Cannelle

    Racists have called *all* black women apes (especially darker skinned black women), not just black women who are taller or compete with men.

    They try to strip us of our humanity and femininity, so how about black people not embrace that? Which is why whenever some low life is calling Serena “masculine” (often a black man), I remind them that there is more than one way to be feminine.

    Most of us women on this board probably don’t fit the female standard of beauty in most white majority countries, but it doesn’t mean that we aren’t feminine.

  • Cannelle

    There is a lot of misogynoir on these boards, which is why I take breaks time to time.

  • davine puddin

    That was his last year so i guess he had zero shucks

  • Cannelle

    A lot of hate from their own fellow citizens. I’ve never been to those matches, but have been told that when playing against a non-American, there are Americans that root for them over Serena, every time. Where I live, the players could have killed these people dog’s they would NEVER root against their countrymen/women on the field/court.

  • Cannelle

    They really are. smdh

  • Faithz

    I hear You , and Understand what you are saying.

  • Li-Wright

    Was her coach the one she was screwing with a few years back? The one that Marina Shaprikova called out that they were having an affair?
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2347703/Clarisse-Mouratoglou-First-picture-partner-Serena-Williams-tennis-coach-left-her.html

    Hmmmm????

  • Faithz

    This is true.

  • Lady_Elle

    Osaka was given an UNEARNED POINT!
    Osaka was given an UNEARNED GAME!
    The umpire was an AZZ!
    Serena… just lost it.
    I wish she could’ve calmed down long enough to regroup.

  • Ant Hill

    you probably wear a hair hat and have a stank attitude just like Serena, no surprise you feel like that.

  • Lady_Elle

    What do IGNORANT people do when they can’t communicate… they try to insult.

    No critical thinking required for that.

  • Jennifer

    Exactly!!!!!

  • Faithz

    Me too, Serena is Known for coming from behind and winning the match. I even wished the umpire had not got into the mix, and let the Game play itself out. His as had tried that with Venus, and she shot him down. But You know what the devil is a Liar. And so many want Serena to hang it up because she got beat by a Younger Player. They must not know about Sarapova Beating Serena Brakes off when she was 17 years old I think it was 2004
    Serena has played Sarapova about 20 to 21 times and Serena has won 19 of those Matches , and Sarapova the White Tennis Ace with the Blonde hair has only Won 2 Games. So if these chicken heads are right about Serena needing to retire , and Serena did not retire when she was beat years ago, I wonder what make the Serena Haters think Serena is going away now.

  • bella28498 .

    Rod chatted me up first he was so triggered by one of my comments and got his a z z handed to him

  • What???

    This is the exact reason negroes aren’t ready to have power in this world. They Don’t wanna follow the rules and would be WAY more corrupt than the white man supposedly is. You and all black people will be oppressed until you stop being a hypocrite and stand for truth. Anyone who believes in god 7 days a week would not say what you just said. Shame on you.

  • What???

    That’s great for her. Unfortunately it didn’t buy her happiness, peace of mind or grace. That Afro Jap kicked her aZZ back to Compton. She’s 36 years old and should have learned grace by now. Sometimes the gangsta won’t leave the girl wit her globally televised crip walkin azz. Every decent black woman should be embarrassed by her behavior not defend that King Kong approach on the world stage.

  • EMILY POST

    Stole that girl moment with all that drama. She is a great tennis player but this is the first year she didn’t win a major title seemed like a big temper tantrum. She is not used to losing you can tell.
