Naomi Osaka, left, made history by beating Serena Williams in the Women's Single finals at the 2018 U.S. Open at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows, NY on Saturday.

Osaka beat Williams in straight sets 6-2, 6-4 to become the first Japanese player ever to win a Grand Slam title. Williams lost her bid to win a record-tying 24 major tennis titles.

Williams, 36, started slowly, dropping 2 service breaks to find herself down 4-1 within the first 20 minutes of the first set. Williams quickly lost the first set 6-2 to the 20-year-old.

In the 2nd set, the chair umpire Carlos Ramos issued a coaching violation to Williams after he caught her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou sending Williams hand signals.

Williams began arguing with the umpire, insisting Mouratoglou was not coaching her. "I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose," Williams told Ramos.

Williams was up a service break at 3-1 in the 2nd set when she hit a backhand into the net, helping Osaka to get back on serve at 2-3.

In frustration, Williams threw her racket down breaking it to pieces.

Chair umpire Ramos announced another code violation for racket abuse, and gave a point to Osaka to start the next game up 0-15.

Williams was livid. "You stole a point from me! You're a thief too!" she yelled at Ramos.

Ramos then issued Williams a 3rd code violation for "verbal abuse", and Williams was assessed a game penalty.

Instead of Osaka serving at 4-3, Osaka was suddenly up a game 5-3. She was only one game away from becoming the first Japanese man or woman to win a Grand Slam tennis title.

A furious Williams demanded to speak to the tournament referee, Brian Earley. But Earley (pictured left) told her he could not change the umpire's game penalty.

Fighting back tears, Williams managed to hold serve at 5-4, but Osaka's powerful serves were too much for the 36-year-old. Osaka easily won the 2nd set 6-4, as the stadium erupted in boos.

Williams was gracious in defeat. She embraced Osaka and told her to enjoy the moment.

But rather than celebrate her historic achievement, Osaka burst into tears as the boos rained down onto the court.

The boos continued during the trophy ceremony, as Williams begged the crowd to be positive and stop booing the kid.

"She played well, this is her first grand slam," Williams told the crowd. "I know you guys were rooting [for me] but let's make this a great moment. Let's not boo. Let's be positive. Congratulations Naomi. No more booing."

Osaka seemed to regret beating her idol Williams. "I know that everyone was cheering for her, and I'm sorry it had to end like this," she told the crowd. "I just want to say thanks for watching the match."

After the match, Mouratoglou admitted to Pam Shriver that he was indeed coaching Williams -- but television replay shows Williams was not even looking at him.

“I was coaching but I don’t think she looked at me,” he said. “I am honest, I was coaching..."

Mouratoglou said all coaches coach their players during matches. He said he had never received a coaching warning in his life. He added that Williams may not have known that she was on her 3rd violation when she called Ramos a "thief" and a "liar."

Osaka was presented with the champion's check for $3.8 million -- which is more than she earned in her entire career.

Osaka, who is biracial, was born in Japan to a Japanese mom and a Haitian father. Both of her parents were in attendance to watch their daughter make history on Saturday.

    Oh, OK

    Oh oh. Here we go. CONGRATULATIONS Naomi and I'm sure this takes nothing away from Serena. Plenty of room in the game (no pun intended).
    Let Nicki and Cardi's nonsense be the example of how competition DOES NOT have to play out. Again, no pun.

  • Rayne

    That’s ok. It’s a shared win according to Naomi and that’s alright! Congratulations ladies!

  • truthlikeasword

    If Serena says they're a liar and a thief, I buy it. She hasn't wronged us yet!

  • Ebony Starr

    This is her 3rd incident of bad calls that helped in her losing at the US OPEN. The other 2 times were foot faults that were clearly incorrect. I was there and I was booing too. I just couldn't believe that it was happening again but I really could. Anyway congratulations Naomi! She most likely would have one without the chairs help.

  • MsPam

    Serena acted like a bish,a bully and an entitled spoiled child.

  • Connie

    Excellent write up Sandra. Serena is a Queen in my book. That “I don’t cheat to win, I’d rather lose,” is epic. Congrats Japanese player lady!

  • MsPam

    She’s Haitian also.

  • the guest

    The tennis world is so racist. The racism that Serena has endured in her career is monumental. Yes, Osaka played well, but you can tell in the air the association is happy to award an other than black brown mixed girl. They attacked Serena’s character because they are racist.

    I read ?saka is of a Japanese Mother and a Haitian Father, but the father says they gave the children the mothers maiden name “for practical reasons” ie. to pass. No married man gives his children the mother’s maiden name.

    The father knows darn well his children are privileged by having the mother’s maiden name. It worked too. ?saka is refered to as Japanese and will get millions in endorsements without having to ever face the racism Serena has suffered or work as hard as Serena.

  • IamAllnatural

    I totally disagree. She was rightfully upset and the audience agreed with her. Her comment at the end proves that she acted nothing like you described.

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    Congratulations to the young lady but they truly cheated Serena on this one....like for real.

  • PhillyFacts

    Girl yassss I want to upvote this a million times somebody understands me when I say what I said last post. Them mofos hated they had to keep congratulating a highly pigmented undefeated BLACK woman. I’m sorry but I can’t identify, with those that can’t identify with themselves. Sometimes we be so quick to claim folks that distance themselves from us every chance they get. Tiger was one of em....

  • MsPam

    Girl, there are plenty of black people walking around passing as white.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I think they just want Serena to retire. It's obvious at this point. They want a new face, new look, etc. I hate that. Let her play fair and square until she can't play any more, but don't take her game after all the time, years, and work she puts into this game. Sports are so rigged sometimes. I'm also glad Serena was nice to the young lady. She didn't deserve for her first win to be done like that.

  • MsPam

    Blame the Haitian father, it’s obvious that he has the problem.

  • PhillyFacts

    Kids learn what they live, at what age are they held accountable.

  • Ebony Starr

    Serena was minding her business and playing tennis. She has no control over what her coach did. Like she said the men do a lot worse. No one else gets penalized. They have spare rackets because they smash them all of the time. And asking for an apology and calling him a their is tame by tennis standards.

  • Ebony Starr

    Serena beats Steffi Graf's record then they pulled Margaret Court's record put of ther a$$e$. There was no talk of Margaret Court's record until Serena got 23 and be at Steffi's record. I hear that say that they are ready for someone, they want Serena and Venus out.

  • Ebony Starr

    Boooo US OPEN, Boooo!

  • MsPam

    If you were watching Naomi was beating her from the start.

  • MsPam

    If she learned it, it goes back to her father. No days kids and their parents don’t want to be accountable for anything. Y’all won’t hold Serena accountable for her bad behavior.

  • leapyearpisces

    Serena would have not have won, but she was indeed cheated and I was crying with her because I felt her pain and frustration. Serena was genuinely was hurt and you could see the pain of ALL THE YEARS of her having to deal with these elitist and racist people who have tried to block her greatness from day one. I felt her, its like it is ALWAYS something. When you are a strong-willed person, PEOPLE STAY trying to break your spirit. They tried to break her spirit by saying she couldn't wear her catsuit...then they did this little sneaky shat....so I understand why she went off, and she still went off in a classy manner. Hell, she is ALLOWED to get upset!!!!! At the end of the day, she pulled it together and showed why she is a LIVING LEGEND by getting everybody together to tell them to stop booing and to congratulate Naomi, because Naomi did not deserve for her victory to be overshadowed by them racist bastards. Its messed up because they are doing to Serena what I have seen done to older people when its almost time to retire. I have witnessed TWICE where the PTB have waited until somebody is about to retire and TRY TO FORCE them to retire or quit, so they do not have to pay them their full retirement benefits. I feel like they are picking on Serena to try to force her into retirement. Its obvious at this point, and honestly I look forward and I wonder what will be her next venture. I had on idea she was such a cool ass, articulate chick. She gained a fan today.

  • Applebum

    Haitian-Japanese, get it right. It’s funny how the media always asking her questions about her Japanese side and she always let them know she’s Haitian too and was raised in a Haitian home. Fk the media. They hate acknowledging anything that’s black.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Oh I thought they weren't married.

  • Coffee1st

    You’re right. And I hate that. But seems to me what happens many times is black folks reach a pinnacle, they become everybody’s darling (because yt folk can’t deny the greatness), and they - to one degree or another - start feeling comfortable like they’re “a part of”. Smh....we’ve ALWAYS got to remember who we are IN THEIR EYES. It doesn’t define us but it keeps us from getting jaded & in the real world. Walk that tight rope accordingly and prepare for when they turn against you....cuz they WILL turn. Just give it time.
    Serena will be okay. She’s a GREAT and they can’t take her accomplishments from her.

    The girls were born in Japan. Not many places as hard on racial mixing as Japan. They up there with South Africa and China. They strive to keep their island racially pure. The Japanese women who got pregnant by the American GIs were banished to the mountains or treated badly after the WW. It was BAD. Still is. Those girls would have been ostracized with their dad's name.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Congrats to this young beauty. Serena will always be the goat. It is sad because I am sure she feels a sense of pressure for the others that win, the crowd needs to grow up.

  • FukkFolks2018

    It amazes me on how our folks think race issues lie with just us. Yes we are the worse. By far. But we aren't the only. Or the oldest. Ours didnt start til the colonizers showed up. Theirs trace back WAY further than us. Those Asians and Indians with their caste system are awful. The Japs don't even accept when mixing happens with OTHER Asians. They hate the ones who have Korean blood. But I digress.

  • the guest

    Japan is one of the biggest appropriators of black racial attributes, culture, and music. Yes, Japan is racist as any other place in the world, but Japan is not unfamiliar with black identity.

    Racism is exactly why a Hatian (notice how the press calls her dad Haitian not black) father sacrificed his last name his family name and gave the children he sired in wedlock his wife’s maiden name. He didn’t just do it for Japan, they moved back to the US when ?saka was 3 years old, he did it so ?saka with her dark skin would not be presumed black in the world.

    What that court judge did is called racist mind control. They have been doing racist mind control to Serena for years. They want to distract and exhaust her with fake policy and infraction to draw the energy and spirit of the game in a preferred non black player’s favor. Osaka’s win felt eerily like Maria Sharapova’s first win against Serena many years ago.

    The association planned it. Because racists are deeply and visiously insidious in their calculativeness. They set out to use Osaka’s non black brown skin as a cover for their planned covert attack on Serena. They will now use Serena’s RIGHTFUL AND JUST stand for her rights, good name and characters, and legacy against her by maligning her with lies such as angry, spoiled, sore loser—ALL LIES.

    ?saka is a talented player, she is also a pawn. For the next year, she will be held up as the “preferred”, “palatable”, “prettier” black while they attack Serena’s African American pioneership and legacy. They will never refer to Osaka’s arms as manly or call her tall frame gorilla because her skin is reddish dark brown hue and her hair not kinky.

    We must cekebrate Serena Williams every chance we can over the next year more than ever. ?saka must cekebrate Serena Williams more than ever. But I think Osaka’s father is completely down with his daughter being pawned to slight Serena. The weight of pawning the association placed on Osaka’s shoulders was so heavy that Serena, through her own oppression and heartbreak, had to comfort ?saka.

    We must keep Serena in our prayers.

  • the guest

    He has a BIG racist, colorist, anti black problem. He knew exactly what he was doing when he erased himself as a man and gave his wedlock children their Japanese mother’s name. If Naomi had a Hatian mother and Japanese father it would be natural that her last name be Japanese. But her sur name choice was orchestrated for her to pass beyond her brown skin.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Did this girl win fair and square? I didn't see the match at all. I figured the 20 y.o. would win but did she win fair and square???

  • the guest

    Even unmarried fathers give children birthed in their relationship their last name especially in Japan a country with cultural adversity to children viewed as born out of wedlock.

  • the guest

    The evil Racist tennis association used that sweet talented girl for their hateful resentment and vendetta against Serena. My heart breaks for Serena and Naomi.

    We saw powers that be in Tennis wield racism and colorism as weapons on that court yesterday. The audience wasn’t booing ?saka, they were booing the blatant racist agenda against Serena. Even ?saka saw the racist assault on Serena and she was heartbroken.

    That talented young lady was honored to earn her way to play against her idol and she wanted to win on merit not on a foundation of racist lies and manipulation that the Tennis admins blatantly and unjustly used as ploys giving Serena’s points away.

  • the guest

    They want a new face, new look, etc.

    ****

    They want a new not so black brown they prefer. They’ve been trying to replace Serena since 22 slams ago. They did everything to usurp her attaining that record making 24th yesterday. I’m so amazed and happy that a near all white tennis audience was conscious enough to see through the racism and protest it.

  • the guest

    That does not negate the blatant racism, colorism, and Jim Crow refereeing going on on that court yesterday.

  • the guest

    THAT MADE ME CRY THEY MADE HER DEFEND HER CHARACTER. RACISM IS EVL.

  • the guest

    Tarred by racism.

  • the guest

    Serena acted like a black person with consciousness and sense enough to stand up for and protest for her rights rather than eat white people’s racist, colorist, Jim Crow attack on her name, game, and legacy.

  • the guest

    EXACTLY.

    Osaka’s father erased his name for his daughter to pass. He wanted her viewed as Japanese. It started with the Hatian father. The media is referring to ?saka as “The First Japanese Winner of an Open”. She's actually the first Haitian and the first Japanese Winner of an Open.

  • EMILY POST

    . Osaka was returning her serve. Hitting aces and her backhand was serious... Osaka won and it seemed like somebody was throwing a temper tantrum.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Was banging her racket like she came to whoop a champion. She really made Serena look old & delusional (typical beyhive character traits,,, aging but not gracefully at all)

    Arguing with the umpire exemplified the stress of Osaka playing like she came to whoop an aging champion

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Tennis doesn't have photoshop or autotune& there aren't any intellectual property assets (for like swing strategy or something ) that could be stolen from Osaka so that culting, beyhive mentality didn't work for the win. HOWEVER, serena can use bey's tired little PUblicist to photoshop the trophy in her hands & buy adverts alleging she won or intentionally let Osaka win. :) I'm sure the stans will believe it& that is something their fleyhive can handle. Winning fairly or bowing out with grace, isn't.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Sidenote: the hair, skin bleaching (just use the cake soap like the rest of them), diamond wedding rings (do u reallllllly need to wear ur diamonds to play a match?) that terrible abloh Nike shit, Kelly rowland, anna and then the gender/parent politics were all early indicators that Serena did not come to win.

  • the guest

    Naomi Osaka (Francois) grew up in the US from three years old. She was given the mother's maiden name to strategically pass for privilege and to suit the father's ambitions.

  • what?why

    Her coach admitted to coaching … end of story. She needs to apologize to the referee.

  • what?why

    Serena lost fair and square!

  • Faithz

    Serena Lost the Match, But shes still a Winner. Osaka been playing really good here lately, she has won matches against many, and that is a good thing. Serena will be Fine, next year this time there will be more up and coming Winners. In Tennis there are ups and downs, this is down for Serena right now, But if she want to She will Return with many winning games if she continue in the Game!!!

  • Goodii2Shoes

    If so, are y'all really mad the father tried to protect his daughter. & in most countries, u r whr u wr born i.e
    If she was born in Japan, she's Japanese. .. in the u.s., ur black white or Indian bc that's how they set up their country. The immigrants are immigrants who will have children that identify as Chinese -American or whatever

  • Faithz

    Cosigns You~

    By saying that serena coach was coaching from the seat, was saying Serena was cheating, the umpire was wrong for that because all the coaches do that.

  • Faithz

    HMMM,,,Billie Jean King, who won 12 Grand Slam singles titles and helped found the women's tennis tour and pave the way for equal prize money in the sport, also commented via Twitter on what happened Saturday.
    "Several things went very wrong during" the match, King wrote. "Coaching on every point should be allowed in tennis. It isn't, and as a result, a player was penalized for the actions of her coach. This should not happen."
    In a second tweet, King said: "When a woman is emotional, she's 'hysterical' and she's penalized for it. When a man does the same, he's 'outspoken' & and there are no repercussions. Thank you (Serena Williams) for calling out this double standard. More voices are needed to do the same."
    There have been a series of recent happenings that illustrate the ways in which tennis does do things differently for men and women!!!!

  • Ang

    Kind of but also not really. I don't know what people here are talking about. They clearly didn't watch the match and didn't hear every single announcer saying the ref was wrong. Every single announcer and ex-player who was there to cover the match said never in the history of tennis, especially a grand slam, has a referee ever taken away a whole game from a player for happened here and they definitely never ever penalize a player without a warning. This guy didn't give Serena a warning before he penalized her with a whole loss of a game. The match was tied up but the referee gave Naomi a point so all she had to do was score one more point and of course Serena would be too flustered to play her best at that point.

    This is the first time ever that at the award ceremony they didn't bring the referee down to receive a certificate and that the chairman and president of the tennis association didn't acknowledge the referee. The entire crowed booed at the awards ceremony until Serena told them to stop. So yea, Naomi played great and did technically win but as the announcers and people who follow tennis all know there have been times, especially at a grand slam, when Serena has been in that exact same spot of being down then tied it up like she did with Naomi and come back and when the whole game so it is valid to say the referee stole the game from her. It's not just Serena saying it.

    People who don't watch must not know that players do exactly what Serena did and worse all the time, especially at the 4 majors. The male players have cursed our referees without getting a game penalty, even the male players have acknowledged that already.

  • Ang

    They weren't booing her.

  • Ang

    I'm guessing you don't watch tennis. She didn't do anything that other players haven't done plenty of times.

    Said no one who actually knows anything about tennis. It's really odd that the older, retired white players are defending Serena but black folks online are insulting her.

    Right, Serena has been turned every which way but loose in Tennis, and she has still Prevailed. Osaka, and a Player Named Sabalenka are two new faces that will go far because they are not Black...

  • Jethro

    They were booing the chair umpire, not Osaka.

  • Ang

    Thank you. The US Open has a history of screwing over Serena. The rule that gives players the right to challenge 3 referee calls with the cameras is because of the referee who was blatantly taking away points that serana obviously won. Even her opponent didn't know why the ref was doing that. If was pure racism. The president of the tournament apologized to Serena after that match and fired that ref. They came up with the challenge rule after that. But, like serana told them apologizing after the fact doesn't give her the win or the check. Now, they're finding new ways to keep her from winning. It's sickening. Serena is very gracious.

  • IAmLegend

    You're right and wrong. Yes, he admitted to coaching but she did not see him because he was on the other end of the stadium. Also, you don't penalize the player, you penalize the coach. The umpire was too extreme and took those points from Serena because he could, not because he should've.

  • IAmLegend

    Right lol. This is the 2nd time Osaka has beat Serena this year. It all comes down to speed. When Serena is more fit next year and can move faster, she won't have anymore problems with Osaka.

  • IAmLegend

    I think they focus more on her Japanese side because she plays for Japan and she is funded by the Japanese tennis federation.

  • Renee26

    They can LOOK at them and see they are mixed race.... I think daddy dropped his name out of shame for his own heritage and to embrace the Japanese culture as if they're superior...not to protect them from ill treatment

  • Faithz

    Osaka Played Good, and She Won, and have the Check to Prove Her Win, But... Serena is a Black Woman in a very white sport.
    Hingis said years ago that Serena and Venus could Really get Sponsors because they was black, That's a Racist Comment!
    Hingis said they had advantages they could always Use the Term Racism, and they can always say they are being treated a certain way because they are black. Question Is Where is Hingis career in Tennis Now.
    Serena Boycotted Indian Wells Tournament for 14 Years, because She believed of bigoted treatment, she stated that it was not just the opponents she played but the crowd and Organizers as well.

  • IAmLegend

    That's not true. Margaret Court's record is different from the one Steffi had. Margaret Court has half of her slams before tennis entered the open era. So for the open era, Margaret really only has 11 but overall has 24. Everybody thought Serena passing 24 was unrealistic at her age so she and everybody else focused on Steffi's 22 in the open era. Once she passed that, Serena announced that she now wants to pass 24 so that she is the undisputed GOAT.

  • Faithz

    Yes Serena is, and she's a great Tennis player, and she has really helped to Elevated the Game, and has caused Other Players to Up their game.
    It's a good thing their Dad helped them early on to be able to stand up against Racist, and the Harsh things people did to them years ago when they first got into Tennis. Serena, Venus has had to be Almost Bullet Proof to be able to stand up against the Fiery arrows aimed at them. So many Women Players are Bitter, mad and Pressed because Serena has mopped the floor with her Dominant
    power Plays in Tennis. Osaka Won, But Osaka has Miles , and Miles to go before she can reach Serena Level of success in Tennis. And so many trash Serena Look, style, even now with their Silly selves. And so many hate the Fact that Serena is one of the Highest Paid in tennis, and she's still a Black Woman, and no amount of trash talk can take away Serena Greatness I don't care how things went Yesterday.

  • Faithz

    She should have wrapped that tennis Racket
    around the Umpire head!!

    Yup! She played really well...let's not forget she beat Serena back in March.

  • Faithz

    Thanks you for that Ang.

    Maybe so, but for them to continue to boo... that girl felt the hurt and was brought to tears....that long booo was saying to her she didn't deserve that win

  • Faithz

    You are so on Point,, ,But They have got dozen, and dozen of Players who rank higher than Serena right now. They are not Bitter with Halep for being Number one. They are not at a lost for Players, There are over a dozen Women ahead of Serena in the Game right now, Just saying.

    Also Serena has been doing too much lately (as they see it) so they probably needed to reel her back in a little.

  • Faithz

    Yes the Coach did.

  • TheWildChild

    I'm so baffled why media critics are calling Serena's behavior a disgrace ? oh please, how they quickly forgotten about the disrespectful azz John McEnroe throwing tennis rackets,balls and cussing out opponents, referees and the whole damn crowd. When Billie Jean King disagreed with a play, no word spoken or her character attacked. Serena is still a class act GOAT ???

  • Faithz

    Osaka Says,,,I don't know what happened on the court. So for me, I'm always going to remember the Serena that I love. It doesn't change anything for me. She was really nice to me at the net and on the podium.

  • Scromes1212

    Purely from a competitive standpoint Serena has got to get in better shape cause she seems a little slower and a bit heavy. Osaka has beat her twice now and she is only 20. Serena is getting older and Osaka hasn’t even reached her prime yet. She is going to have a tough time with her from her on out.

  • Scromes1212

    Osaka is a problem

  • FukkFolks2018

    I don't even know this girl. Who ever said I was anything other than Team Serena? I'm sure Naomi will be okay. But this whole biz around why her dad gave her and her sis, her moms last name is kind of crazy. We here have kids with mom last name as a prevalence. It's a whole thread on LSA I saw yesterday of a married couple giving the kid the mom last name. It happens. A lot.

    https://www.lipstickalley.com/threads/children-taking-mother’s-surname.1793754/

    To say he did it to hide etc we don't know that. I just dont think Kids walking around with Japenese faces and brown skin named Francios on the island of Japan most likely would fly as easy. Appropriation be damned. They do appropriate but like everyone else who does, they dont truly want these issues. She has an older sister too. We don't know when they decided to come here to live. He seems hella proud of his girls and wife. It's mad pics out there of them. All that matters.

    Hey Rod....People are acting like Serena haven't Lost before. Taking the lost is one thing But the Umpire throwed a m0nkey ranch in the play!!

  • Faithz

    There are many men who have clowned the Umpires over the years.

  • TransMichelle

    Then she should have no complaints.

  • Faithz

    Serena Complains is not with Osaka it's with the UMPIRE,,,AS.

  • Faithz

    Serena is one of the Baddest Tennis Player who has ever walked on a Tennis court, hands down.
    Serena has lost many Games, But how dare the Umpire accused her of cheating. I suppose Serena cheated her way to over 100 Million plus IN Tennis Earning. Billy Jean said the Ruling was wrong, and I believe her before I will believe you!!!

  • Faithz

    Serena them has had to Endure all the thing that plays games with their head Connected to Racism,

  • Faithz

    Serena Being ordered to be tested more than Others for Performance Enhancing Drugs.

  • Faithz

    Ramous accused Serena of being coached, in other words Cheating. Serena is a Champion of all Champion, and the Umpire can fly a Kite.

  • TransMichelle

    I'm not asking you to believe me. I just said she had nothing to complain about and the coach finally admitted he was trying to coach her from the side lines. Serena has done well and it looks like her time is up. A younger player is on the horizon and it's nothing unusual. If niccas start calling racism then it just shows stupidity.

  • Faithz

    Serena is so often Targeted, single out in a way that her white counterparts Male are not.
    Rules of tennis means one thing for Williams, and another for everyone else, Serena Knows this , and she's sick of it, and I am glad she went off on the Umpire.

    Serena was a Tennis Champ, at the END, Serena asked the crown to not BOO,,,,,

  • Jon Bell

    I seem to remember bad behaviour costing McEnroe the Australian open. However, I don't remember any male player telling a line umpire they want to shove a #### ball down their #### throat and threatening them physically the way Serena has done.
    I've never heard a male player physically threaten any officials the way Serena has. The same bullying occurs here when Serena threatened the umpire by saying "If you see me coming you better turn around and walk the other way" .. what is this other than a physical threat against a referee? If a male player said anything close to that to a female official, the reaction would be furious, so where is the real double standard?
    Now that we know her coach admitted he was coaching her we can see if anyone is lying, it surely isn't the judge. Serena's rant calls to mind the Shakespearean line "thou protest too loudly" ... as for being a thief, Serena's boorish antics stole the moment from an incredibly talented and deserving player who had beaten her handily.
    That the media allows bullying threats of violence, intimidation and phony protests against legitimate calls by a referee to be wrapped in the cloak of women's rights and motherhood by a poor example of behaviour is equally shameful. So is the Associations lack of punishment if they fail to do so.
    I'd like to see every media source loudly feature Osaka's triumph and victory in full feature and relegate the sad Serena story to the obscurity where it belongs. If you agree, please share, if not there are books on manners and etiquette available online.

  • Faithz

    So even though Osaka has beat several top players Including Serena to make it to the winner circle, but you believe Serena time is up, Well we shall see.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Stop guessing hon. You ppl act like showing Class/decorum in professional settings is so Unfair it MUST be racism. If Serena couldn't count her penalties & play like a champion then she shouldn't have tried to play umpire.

    I counted the penalties & watched her earn them. They were well deserved. I personally thought she must be trying to throw the match arguing with the umpire about a WARNING. Others have said it was " 'roid rage"..

  • Faithz

    She embarrassed herself. She said the ref made the call b/c she's a woman...uh, it's a woman's tournament. I'm a mother & stand up for what's right...what?

    The women's rights & motherhood.smh. it felt like either 'rena off her meds, having a helluva comedown or delusional with post partum. ... none of her argument made sense when she was supposed to be playing.

It was too much

    Only white men get that type of consideration.

    No Osaka won that's it. It happens you know. Older players fade out and go to other things and new players come in,. It's like that in acting, sports, Olympic winners. It's nothing new.

    Jon Bell: However, I don't remember any male player telling a line umpire they want to shove a #### ball down their #### throat and threatening them physically the way Serena has done.

    That old wrinkled Asian b!tch deserved it.

    Even the commentators agreed that foot faults shouldn't be called especially not during a championship match.

    The refs call was wrong because the penalty was against Serena's coach and not Serena but he decided to penalize Serena.

    Maybe you should read the rules before you make your statement.

  • TransMichelle

    Well her sister Venus must be on the way too. Venus Williams is dating fellow millionaire Nicholas Hammond. Hammond, according to the NY Daily Post, is a "wealthy financier". The Post continues that Hammond is 12 years Venus's junior, and is the son of socialite Dana Hammond and her ex-husband James." Those Williams sisters know how to get those rich white boys. LOL

    & no, you do not need to guess about what I know. Ur doing a terrible job anyway.

  • what?why

    The Tennis Federation will fine him if the umpire is in the wrong but I think they would of by now. So ….. On another note, Serena seems on edge lately. Hope all is well because she is a champ and this behavior is unlike her.

  • what?why

    Great attitude!

  • MsPam

    I watched the WHOLE match, just because yt folks are defending Serena doesn’t make it right. Naomi was beating her from the jump.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    It's shxtty that her & her coach "miscommunicated" about when or how they should cheat or respond to allegations of cheating. But Serena could have taken the warning & played mad instead of raging at an umpire that she KNOWS can penalize her into a loss. It was fair. Osaka played&won!

  • MsPam

    You’re right, they followed the behavior they saw.

  • Faithz

    Yes she has.

    That's the point. He didn't give her a warning.

  • Ang

    The point is vetera n tennis players and people who report on tennis for a living used FACTS to show how the referee was wrong and did something unprecedented. If you don't get that and are solely focused on Serena's response then you are missing the point and don't know what the real issue is.

  • Faithz

    Not only did Williams fail to shake off the violation calls from Ramos and instead let it rattle her to the point that it cost her a shot at her 24th grand slam singles title, but she also failed to properly prepare for the chair umpire. Had she done so, she would have known that Ramos has a history of readily calling violations, and she therefore should have known to be especially careful to avoid being penalized.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    More reason to stfu&win. (Although. .. I watched him warn her that she had a warning on the board)..she was too busy ranting about kids&apologies to hear, maybe.. it never hurts to shut up & listen whn a game official is speaking. It would have been nice to see her handle it like a champ but... Whn u associate with the likes of beyawnce, I don't expect championships or exemplary behavior from you...

  • Parent

    Very emotional match. Much love to Serena! I feel a lil better that she didn't lose to a white girl! I'm just saying. That's how I feel. Don't judge me.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    + whatever monetary damages the umpire will seek if she does wrap her tennis racket around his head. lol,

  • Cannelle

    I was just visiting Japan; how horribly they treat Koreans is no secret. They are extremely xenophobic, in general.

    On the other hand, their immigration laws recently changed to bring highly skilled foreigners to the country, giving them permanent residency fairly quickly, and allowing them to pursue citizenship shortly after if they relinquish any other nationalities and learn to read Japanese at a child's level.

    Just like the USA, it is a paradoxical country.

  • Cannelle

    What is particularly interesting about Naomi is that she has American citizenship, despite neither parent being Americans prior to her birth.

    Japan does not allow dual nationalities, but if children have parents from different countries, they usually look the other way because it isn't the kid's fault. However, if a dual-national Japanese person seeks to claim another citizenship (i.e. the place where they live, such as the USA), they would have to alert the Japanese government that they already have two nationalities. The government usually does not stand for this and other citizenships would have to be relinquished or risk losing the Japanese one. I know a few people like this who have stuck to their two nationalities. Better to be safe than sorry.

    So Naomi, who apparently was awarded American citizenship likely from her parents, has a citizenship from Japan AND America AND possibly Haiti (<--but probably not Haiti). How did she do that?!

    Despite her mixed-race and nationalities, she is a celebrity that brings tons of money and recognition to Japan, so it is allowed. Her name helps. Money is the crux of it all. I wouldn't be surprised it was all orchestrated by the parents, such as you said before: her name.

  • Cannelle

    She is technically also American, which is an interesting feat being Japanese and Haitian, so with neither parent from the USA.

  • Cannelle

    No lies told. I was so sad seeing both women cry. Ugly and unnecessary spectacle.

  • Waya Hedia

    classless and vulgar as she gets beat by a little Japanese girl.

  • Waya Hedia

    I'm judging you as a racist

  • Cannelle

    aww, cute babies!

  • Cannelle

    They are getting better with accepting bi-racial Japanese people, but it is a slow process. A couple of friends who are bi-racial Japanese (one with a black parent, and one with the white parent) would be in their mid to late 30s now. They were treated horribly growing up. They ended up with bad personalities as a result of the constant abuse. The younger people I've known are less ostracized, and you can tell by how they act. This is particularly if they are bi-racial white, or bi-racial black with lighter skin. But they still aren't seen as good as 100% Japanese.

    At the end of the day, any country will accept a winner who brings positive news for the country, and money. The poor/regular people aren't as lucky.

  • dontgetblocked

    Serena is a great player but there's new competition and Naomi beat her. The coach was coaching. Serena broke her tennis racket. Serena verbally abused the umpire. She deserved the penalties and fines. The only positive thing she did was tell the crowd to stop booing but she set up that negativity with her bad behavior. The only story should be about Noami Osaka winning but nooooooooo....attention seeking Serena has to grab the headlines....yet again!

  • Cannelle

    She totally looks Japanese in the face. She is brown with courser hair, showing that she is mixed race, but she is clearly Asian.

  • Li-Wright

    I tried to take tennis lessons and tried to like the sport, but couldn't and to this day I think it's one of the most boring sports. It's more drama than athleticism to me. Witness Serena. Of course, if you make it to the top of the game, then you are guaranteed endorsements and riches. As with all sports.
    The younger woman is Japanese American I believe. I think she's biracial. But maybe there's a lot of pressure on Serena to keep the endorsements coming because she's not making money from tennis. Tennis is the "show" and it doesn't pay much in prize money. The money she gets is from endorsement. She's all over the TV with Chase ads and drink ads. She needs to relax. Go on vacation or whatever. Go into the doubles. But maybe the judges & refs are giving her hints that she should move over and let a younger girl take the spotlight.

  • Li-Wright

    I think Tennis is the most boring sport of all. I don't see how people get excited about it.

    The Umpire could not see where Serena Eyes was, and Beside that Other men players has had problems with this Umpire, You just want Serena to be the under dog. She was upset because he said she was being coached from the sidelines, and Serena did not see her coach gesture, and yes he said he was telling her something, but she did not get the message, she wasn't in eye contact with him and that is why she was so upset when she was accused , and she felt it was unfair to be accused of something that wasn't going on. And if the Umpire was so right then why did they take him out the back dang door, Since you know it all....
    SERENA Was beyond Gracious to Naomia and embraced her there at the end Her Beef was with that chicken ciiiiit umpire , and rightfully so.
    And Remember Serena As has been Beat before on the Dang Tennis Courts.

    That racist umpire knew exactly what he was doing..He was making inferences against Serena's legacy because he HATES that Serena in an icon. He went to work that day knowing full well that he DID NOT want Serena getting that 24th. If it wasn't one thing it would have been another.

    Wise men speak because they have something to say fools because they have to say something with no regards to the truth at all!!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Smdh I am sure that is NOT why she married him.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Like how Serena has a child now and is getting older, I wonder do some of you same older mothers put the pressure that you do to Serena on men? I bet you hoes do not because you are pick mes.

  • Faithz

    Thanks Meme.

  • Faithz

    The one who falls and gets up is stronger than the one who never tried. Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying Serena will keep doing it till she get enough!

  • A D N

    I saw the highlights from the game. Extreme on the ref's part...yes. Extreme on Serena's part...yes.

    Congratulations to Naomi for playing your very best today! What happened to @serenawilliams will resonate with women everywhere—especially women of color: too often, when we speak up, we are penalized. Serena, today you gave us just one more reason to admire you as the very best!

  • ImWoke

    Serena should not move over. She still has tennis skills superior to most. She had a baby a year ago and babies change bodies in a major way. She has to learn to adjust her game to the changes that her body has endured. The judge was wrong for the coaching violation since nobody has ever been penalized for it and it’s done all of the time. He was also wrong for penalizing her for calling him a thief when other players have called the judges much worse and suffered no consequences. Serena is known for coming from behind to defeat her opponents, so I do not think that the game had a fair outcome. I also think that Osaka played a phenomenal game and definitely gave Serena a run for her money.

  • IAmLegend

    James Blake can kiss my azz. The way he handled that situation when the cop slammed him to the ground outside his hotel was despicable. He thought his half white side would get him fair treatment until the NYPD all stuck together and told him they were not going to apologize and that cop did no wrong.

  • Li-Wright
  • Ryan

    Seriously delusional and ignorant.

  • ImWoke

    I saw a post game interview that Serena did after the match. She said that he has umpired some of her matches prior to yesterday and they had no issues. So she should have been familiar with his umpire style.

  • IAmLegend

    I am so sick of reading some of these comments on here screaming about racism and the tennis world wants Serena out. Most of you know nothing about tennis because if you did, you wouldn't be making half of the ignorant statements you're making. Most of the tennis world worships the ground Serena walks on now. The facts are Osaka was clearly beating Serena before the umpire drama, Serena's behavior was poor and she would not have lost the first point had she not slammed her racquet which she had been warned about several times in the past and the Umpire's actions were not racist but they were slightly extreme. Serena went too far with her nonstop beratement of him during the changeover and he penalized her to shut her up. Serena is a great player and I love her but she has always been a sore loser.

  • ImWoke

    I agree she was fine. When you’ve worked so hard to be the best at your craft and feel that you’ve been treated unfairly you become emotional. The umpire overreacted with two of his violations and Serena became emotional. She tried to justify by saying it was sexism. I think she was hesitant to call it racism.

  • 88

    Looks like that red man she married is sucking all the energy out of her

  • ImWoke

    Racism is such a hard thing to prove, but that does not negate the fact that she may have felt that he was being unfair based on her race. This was about the umpire, not the fans.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I feel like Serena should have taken some time off. She seems stressed and just over the top.

  • Faithz

    Venus has been called out by Ramos didn’t know Serena had been umpired by him I know he has been at the center of many high profile male players and the men complained about his calls as well ??Many are saying Serena is right in saying that make players might get away but female players will not??

  • ImWoke

    I agree that male players are allowed to do more. I think she’s probably had so much done against her in the world of tennis that others were able to get away with, she reached her breaking point. She just needs to use this game as a learning tool and move forward.

    If you weren't a superficial person you would understand how complicated tennis is and how many different physical attributes players utilize on the court.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I saw one clip where she mentioned her daughter and this has nothing to do with her. We know u a mother. It was too much

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    He has nothing to do with this. She can marry and love who she wants

  • Faithz

    The same umpire has. Even trashed by men players and they wasn’t fined so we shall see how this will end stay tuned because it’s clear to me you are a backward thinker?

  • Alicia.Ashe

    You’re not black white troll.

  • EMILY POST

    Actually I cant just look at her and tell she is mixed because there are a lot of African American women that have those same features as Osaka and have no direct Asian Parent. That Chun Li and with the melanated complexion and the asiatic eyes they look very very exotic and ethnic but I have seen African American women and dont let them add a good looking hair extension look exactly like the Jhene Aiko and Amerie kind of Nicki Minaj look.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    You’re an idiot

  • Faithz

    You are so on point and there is proof that men has been vocal and talked back to his Racist as and they wasn’t fined a dime ??I mean he accuse her of cheating before the Entire World he acted like just because he was looking at Serena coach that Made him know where Serena eyes was like Venus told him she he was not looking at her COAch?
    When he accused her of being coached from the side lines
    They knew to usher his as out the side door??

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Serena still the goat. Congrats to that other girl.

  • dontgetblocked

    Congratulations Naomi Oksana. She beat Serena fair and square, and then she was bullied because Serena acted like a baby. Serena is pushing 40 and has won countless awards and accolades. Times up...Noami Oksana is the future!!!

  • Faithz

    Many on here seem to not understand the Velosity of the situation Naomi played her as off won the first set but the Umpire messed up the play for Serena on the second set and it seemed deliberate to get Serena off her game??I mean he Deliberately accused her of getting coached and Patrick said he was talking to her but if she didn’t get the signal he didn’t succeed that’s like sentencing Serena to ten years without a Trial in his mind he is acting like she’s black she has to many
    Slams let me mess this up for her black as??

  • Faithz

    This racist knew Serena was getting ready to bring it like she always does in that second set and he trashed her he know that Serena is known for pulling a rabbit out of the hat?? Just the though of her getting #24 he set out to spoil her efforts by falsely accusing her and no one would be the wiser
    But there are People who was there and he has clowned men as well and none of the men has given birth recently and none of the men have been told to stop wearing their cat suits this doggie knew exactly what he was doing?It’s great
    Talking to people who has common sense on here We will watch and see if any actions are taken Nadal said he never wanted him to call his games anymore but I don’t think that will fly anyway we shall see??

  • Faithz

    I agree with you she have come so far many who would have been through some of the crap she and her sister has gone through would have thrown the towel in many years ago
    Serena know very well that a Quitter never wins and a Winner never Quits?????

  • Bashi22

    Serena only mad because all the media build up to this one final game from nike outfit. She was in a rage i wouldn't want to see her mad at her husband.

  • MsPam

    She thinks she’s a white feminist and has superpower.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Mad about a lot of things .... but hey ... Big ups to the young lady that won .... (Again) ... The focus should be on her is what I'm trying to really say .... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cda4925ca1d357264787be9b5ccd589f4b0940cb9442847e1840c0a193a331e3.gif

  • MsPam

    Talking about “ You need to apologize to me right now! I’m waiting for you to apologize to me (In her Kim K voice).

  • MsPam

    Because a black man would never marry her, she wanted kids with light skin and good hair. Because she didn’t want her kids to be picked on like she was. All of her sisters have mixed children.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    It was too much to look at.

  • MsPam

    She’s not American Japanese, she was born and raised in outside of Japan until recently.

  • MsPam

    Father Time will move her along not someone younger.

    It’s always the devil (yt man) fault the judge was from Spain?!??

  • the guest

    Pay it pennies Serena!

    We really need to stand with Serena. Her heart and spirit are strong to withstand that sick extra racism in tennis.

  • the guest

    Thank you.

  • the guest

    That's deep.

  • the guest

    ENVIOUS.

  • the guest

    SPEAK!!!!!!!!!

    Serena got robbed. Point. Bank. Period.

    That racist referee was sent out there with determination and orders from up top to circumvent Serena from that that 24th Grand Slam and that's exactly what he did.

    This was not organic chain of events. It was intended, set up, premeditated, and instigated to usurp Serena's legacy.

    Naomi Osaka Francois was just a politically correct pawn.

  • the guest

    PURE RACISM.

    Serena was indeed very gracious.

    That racist referee hates hearing her beautiful eloquent articulation and can't stand the sight of her excellence and wealth.

  • the guest

    Pay it in pennies!

  • Faithz

    We will stand with her Serena is American and she have been Dominate over all players in the open Era
    Many players are bitter because over the years Serena has Mopped the floor with her Domination
    Even through all the Mean things that’s been done to her? Many are Bitter because she made it to the The US Open Osaka has beat several of the Big Tennis players and with Serena if The Umpire had not Sabagoted her game plan we might have had a different Ending Just saying
    Osaka won and that’s good I rather see her than
    Any of the others win?

  • the guest

    Basically he set it up to keep Serena from coming back to win. He set it up for Naomi to win. I'm sorry but Naomi's 1st slam win is tainted by the racism of the tennis association. She played well but she did not win. She benefited from the circumvention of Serena's win.

  • the guest

    Male players straight up cuss the umpires out and people think its cute, no penalties.

  • the guest

    Do you really believe that? How do you know that?

  • the guest

    That's her Haitian father's fault who didn't even give his daughter his name so she wouldn't be seen as regular black. He wanted people to focus only on her Japanese side.

    What man do you know gives his children his wife's maiden name? Her Haitian father did it so she could pass. He's thrilled the media is ignoring her Haitian side and not calling her black.

    People on here saying he did it to protect her from racism in Japan. That child has grown up in the US from three years old. But I think they lived in Florida and he didn't her taken for a Haitian in Florida where Haitians are marginalized and stigmatized.

  • the guest

    Having a Japanese last name distinguishes her from being African American, especially a name as distinctly Japanese as Osaka. Her father ain't slick.

  • ALLMINE?

    OT: The cop who killed the dude in his own apartment just got arrested (finally). She is one rough-looking cat.

    No but black folks accept everybody that's not fully black tho.. ever found that weird? Whites and asians don't accept mix race but we idolize them..

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    The game been rigged Serena. Chill

  • Quitedeliteful

    Wow... Interesting...

  • Ebony Starr

    She only has 1 sister who had children and that was Yetunde and yes her children are mixed.

  • ImWoke

    Amen to that. Serena and Venus are definitely winners. She’s held her composure for years but every time she becomes frustrated here we go with the stereotyping and belittling.

  • ImWoke

    He threw her off of her mental game which ended in disaster for Serena. The way that this entire match ended is unfortunate.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    ??? love Serena

  • Darkandlovely617?

    They are always negative

  • Faithz

    You are such a one Demential Thinker?Serena was accused of Cheating and u know this But chooses to be a Backwars thinker but hey it’s all good?

  • Faithz

    The Focus sure is on Her But the Biggest Focus is on why the Umpire is lying in broad day light and accusing Serena of Cheating and the FOCUS is on why he treat men different than he has treated Serena that’s the 911. But many like you are not playing with a Full deck so it’s understood why u feel the way u do??

  • Faithz

    School his as ?

  • Faithz

    You read like a wood head chicken with saw dust for brains

  • Faithz

    YOur logic is off because Serena has Won to many times and hold more Titles than any other and u are a ball face Liar and a
    Real life ?who is lying through your teeth? How can Serena come up with enough excuse to Cover all of her HISTORIAL
    Wins ?Yo as has never known Serena to Whine about her Work You are such a Hater? I Hope lying on Serena make you sleep good at night?

  • Faithz

    What that got to do with him saying he have talked out of term to Umpire though?

  • Faithz

    The Boos was for that chicken chiiiiiii umpire?

    SERENA WILL...Never stop dreaming, never stop believing in Herself, never give up on success.

    And there is nothing the likes of you can do but talk trash, and try to belittle Serena success. Its great that you are not thinking about the Umpire
    that is just like small minded people they refuse to see the big picture, and then talk a hundred miles of off the wall crap to try and make Osaka the Winner look like she has Won 23 Gram Slams.

  • Faithz

    Serena will never stop trying to improve her Talent in the Game

    Osaka will be Written, and talked about Her Country Japan will Relish Her from Now on, Just like the World will Relish Serena from now on. Osaka will be talked about from now on as well... and get Huge Endorsement, But that will not stop Serena from Excelling in the Game. You see no matter how you feel about Serena, Osaka will get her Reward because She Earned it, But life will still go on for all the other Tennis Players. You read like Osaka , and Serena are the only Tennis Players in the Game. Just so you will know Since your brain is so small and Condensed, Last Year Sloane Stevens won the US Open, and she Excelled to the top. The Media showed Picture of her she signed Endorsements, But where is Stevens this Year. Things don't stop for Serena just because she got knocked out by Osaka, and the Umpire. Serena will always be a champ and she will be a champ , with her name Written on the Moon, and Stars for Years, and Years to come Hun, and Her name will be Written on Markers, Billboard Ect. no matter how you try to down play her success.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    It was rigged..period..the crowd saw it thats why they booed. They didn't boo over the defeat, they booed over the way the defeat happened..I think the girl cried because she knows that the win wasn't all her doing. True champs like to win on their own merit not with help.

  • Faithz

    Djokovic a Man Player who is hard to Beat on the Tennis Courts, Once said men should be paid more....
    Although the U.S. Open is well known for its equal pay between men and women, Djokovic came under fire in 2016 about the pay gap between men and women’s tennis when he said he thought men’s tennis should fight for more because the stats are showing that we have much more spectators on the men’s tennis matches,Talk about Backward Thinker...
    All though he also stated that female tennis players had to fight for the pay they deserved,,
    PS
    Serena is more than a Tennis Playing Champion Serena and Venus are "Trailblazers" In Tennis and they have the Receipts to prove it. You can type till the end of time and Serena Name will still be right there for all to see in the Sports History Books Under the Tennis Header for all to see including you Backward Thinkers.
    SERENA WILLIAMS LOST THE US OPEN.. BUT THE CHAIR UMPIRE ACTIONS WAS OUT OF BOUND!!!

  • Queen B

    Lol ?

  • Faithz

    Exactly right about that, and many people know this but they hate that Serena is such a force in the game, and they are so happy that she did not win the match. That is why they want to try and Erase her three Decades of success in the Tennis World!!

    Yet. Ur avatar is a troll. I'll be blocking u so speak fxck urself.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Patrick Mouratoglou Admitted to the hand signals.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    I hate to sound rude, but I'm mixed (primarily of indigenous tribes like Choctaw & cherokee)... I have been around white & black racism all my life & unfortunately, a lot of things viewed as racist usually boil down to reality, not racism. If ur black (african slave trade descendants of the u.s. are the only ppl I refer to as black) & trying to "fit" in white society as a "black person " & mad they don't accept you or make ur attempt to fit pleasant, I have only wondered why the hell are black ppl trying to make themselves comfortable with white society & social standards? (Anyway)

    I used to listen to black ppl say it was bc the whites enslaved them & now they want them to "have" to deal with black ppl Respectfully; but then I grew up , studied history & realized that slavery isn't new to Africa. So demonizing the white ppl but calling Africa the motherland & every melanated person ur family like africans didn't create the slave trade or play any role in creating "racism" isn't something Im up for.

    If ur being treated unfairly , based on race, lmk if you think fighting for a spot in a crowd of ppl who hate u is worth it?

    I'm not phased by the money & fame but I see plenty of black people destroy themselves, their families, & other ppl who are nearly complete strangers to them to get that white man's dollar, so I can't feel sorry for Serena (&the many others like her)

    I also think racism is stupid & try to avoid racists of all races. Keeps my life blessed while dealing with whatever racist thoughts/hatred that are projected onto me for simply claiming my indigenous heritage instead of allowing ppl to bully me into claiming blackness...

    Serena showed her complete ignorance in this last match yet ppl want to chalk it up to racism. Sportsmanship required she act better (eff everybody else that does worse w/no penalty, they aren't winning or losing for her gain) & not taking responsibility in the moment is the example of the false narrative of racism I can't support. Serena claims to be unliked or treated unfairly but why act so much like a nigga if u don't want to be treated like one? Saturday was just exemplifying my thoughts on how can you demand respect from ppl you claim abhor u but act with disregard in how you can EARN their respect?

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Also, it's a white sport. *shrug* that.is.all.i.got.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Stop trying to claim melanin as solely one race & feeding racist ideologies then... it's simple & really shouldn't be hurtful, especially when it is reality. I always point to the Hutu warfare of Africa as an example of white stupidity thinking all people with melanin are family & cool ,etc. Clearly the warfare of Central Africa disputes such stupid white thinking but ppl with melanated skin still try to perpetuate white foolish ideas about race & color

  • Kay Gee

    I'm sure you've heard by now that she is Haitian-Japanese. Her dad is Haitian, and she ain't to proud to say it.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Thinking they are a darling at all is entertaining . Blk ppl say it best so I won't repeat it, but it refers to when slaves were made to kill one another for sport & any extra food/etc for winning was considered a prize.

    Like Koonye West rapped: "even in a Benz. ..u still a nxggxr& a crook " ( in koonye case, that may just be fact not racism tho...ijs)

  • Goodii2Shoes

    That law was repealed (&an apology issued) in the seventies. If anything, it exemplified white feeblemindedNess (history states the white ppl of VA were too weak in the brain to tell the difference between Indian & black or thought blacks would try to pass as Indian to gain free rights & they tried to "simplify" the issue for their tiny little brains by creating a law separating ppl by color.)

    A law repealed & apologized for well before my birth...yet knowitalls still bring it up. Exemplifying how poorly the u.s.'s education system is doing with educating.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    I'm contemplating blocking you. It's two accts in ur name & u keep replying to my comments when you can actually just keep scrolling past them. However, I'll leave u with food for thought before deciding to block you: serena is a seasoned pro. At any time during her ranting she could have acted like one, kept track of her warnings & counted penalties (like a pro) & exhibited " sportsmanship " (google the definition, if it eludes you)

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Probably was drinking last not sorry hun ?

  • Goodii2Shoes

    I could get deeper into "dressing a champion/ dressing to win", how hair plays a role in a black woman's whole " life energy" , why kelly/anna etc were distractions or pots of negative energy In serena's space (clouding her win with their decades of losing ), why athletes don't wear diamond rings until after winning & how her spiel on parent&gender politics is such a strategic facade I am embarrassed for her & whatever truths that will be revealed or are being carefully hidden... but ... idc enuff to.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Not sure if ur a bot or replica of the other one commenting on my comments too heavily but not only can you go away (you will be blocked) but you can also take this with you: my skin is naturally the color serena wants to bleach hers to & the same shade beyawnce& rih & white women spraypaint themselves to be.

    This is a sick comment to make if you don’t know if it is true or not.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Idk about what way she paved... & I mentioned aging bc that's how I felt. Aging gracefully is beautiful.

  • Faithz

    Block me sweetie do what ever floats your boat, that will be one less bell to answer. As long as you are smart enough to say Serena is off her Meds, I am smart enough to say it's not your business if she's on or off her meds, the Fact is i can't get my way with Facts on her Greatness that she already have in the Bank, and you will never get your way with your Adulterated Hate, and dislike of her. So shoot your best shot, I could care less.

  • dru and neil

    I didn’t assume they were booing Osaka directly, but there’s no way for her to know that. Shouldn’t be booing at all.

  • Ang

    She was there. She knew what the situation was.

  • dru and neil

    That’s not what she said in her interview this morning.

    Of course she's going to say that. she should get it by now. She was crying and Serena comforted her and told the crowd to stop. The crowed booed to show their disapproval of the situation. That's their right. The ref cheated them out of a full match they paid to see. It's good that the customers let them know how they felt. Naomi should get that by joe if she doesn't too bad. It's been explained enough. She's not a victim.

  • IAmLegend

    That's not how tennis works. 4 points = 1 game, 6 games = 1 set, 2 sets = Match (or the best 2 out of 3 sets).

    Serena was already losing 4-6, 3-4 before the drama. Those 5 points she lost did not make much of a difference.

  • IAmLegend

    Yes but he got caught and was called out for it. But Serena didn't lose a point for that, she was just given a warning. She lost a point for smashing her racquet.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I didn't feel sorry for the asian girl when they gave her the trophy and eveybever started booing

  • ImWoke

    You are presenting yourself as a fool. What does Serena’s income have to do with the injustice done against her? Who is the “they” that you refer to that have the supreme ability to determine whether Serena can or can not play professional tennis?

  • TransMichelle

    The bytch lost what's so hard to understand about that. This is why black folks stay losing and people don't want black folks in their neighborhoods and schools. Just STFU and leave me alone Toodles

  • TransMichelle

    Forget that poster. It's a straight fool and has more than one account. It also answers itself.

  • ImWoke

    You replied to my post therefore I replied to you and will continue to reply each and every time. Nobody can deny that Serena lost. That’s a fact and only an idiot would argue against that. Regardless of what others may want, nobody will dictate to me where I can or can not live, and you can bet your life on it that nobody will dictate where I send my child to school. BTW I’m black and I’m winning. Stay positive ??

  • ImWoke

    You agree with sexism. ?? I absolutely respect that.

  • Faithz

    The Racism and Sexist toward Serena is terrible.

  • Shira Harding-James

    What?

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    She corrected the interviewer who though she was only japanese, she said her father was from Haiti. Now for Haitians she don't need to claim Haiti as she probably never been there

  • Jussjess25

    Thank you for the clarity but if she lost five points in the second set isnt that most of the set?? Oh unless she lost half in the first and two in the second.. then yea it wouldn't have mad a difference.

  • ImWoke

    I don’t condone sexism or racism toward anybody, but the disrespect toward her is just mind blowing to me. Was she wrong, she was. Could the umpire could have handled things differently, he could have, but when she attempted to stand up for herself, she’s wrong. I just don’t know Faithz.

  • Kay Gee

    I thought I heard her say she lives in Florida...close enough right??? I believe she also was raised in New York, because that came up before she said "I live in Florida now" and my father's side of the family is Haitian."

  • IAmLegend

    You have to win at least 24 points to win a set. Osaka already had 16 points and Serena only had 12 before she was penalized. Serena was not going to win the match anyway.

  • Bee jaay Cee
  • Goodii2Shoes

    Lol, I noticed. I wondered if it was some a.i. wandering around. .

  • Dora LaBelle

    what deception????

  • dblogged

    Study human anatomy 101

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    She probably married him for validation. Or maybe she hates her black skin and did not want a dark skinned baby. Do they ever appear in public together?

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I never see them in public together but I think so many black men put Serena through it and she tried to give them a chance.

  • Faithz

    I hate that she blew up, because she's known for coming from behind , and winning. I feel that the Umpire didn't give her a pass because he knew #24 was at stake, and he wanted to stop her, and made it seem like she was cheating, now people are kicking her left , and right. But one thing is for sure, and that is they can never take her Decades of Winning, and Accomplishments away from her.

  • ImWoke

    Faithz I LOL when I saw your reply. It’s been so long since this post that I had to go back and read what was written, but I agree with you fully. I guess she’s gotten over her loss because I’ve not heard anything about the match lately.

  • Faithz

    Thanks for Replying that was a long time ago
    And Serena is still living her life, and no matter what happens they can not define her from what happened at the US Open You Take Care.

  • ImWoke

    But they’re going to try to define her by her behavior at the US Open.

  • Faithz

    You are exactly right, this always remind me of what they did to Kilpatrick over kneeling over the Anthem he Trump sorry as does everything that he can think of to the people of the Us. Did you see where Nike stood up for Serena, Nike said you can take the cat suit off Serena , But you can't take the Super Hero out of the game, that was awesome, and no one is posting on that ,You Take Care. Thank Goodness for the Almighty who has the whole world in the psalms of his hands.

  • ImWoke

    Amen to that. Now we’re on to this silly Supreme Court divisiveness.

  • Faithz

    Yes indeed, and I wait to see if this Privileged whit boy get his wish after acting worst than Serena ever did!

  • Faithz

    Yes indeed, and I wait to see if this Privileged whit boy get his wish after acting worst than Serena ever did!

  • ImWoke

    LOL you are absolutely correct. I’m hoping that the FBI will find something and determine that he’s unfit to serve on the Supreme Court. All of the drama within the last few days alone should disqualify him.

  • Faithz

    Me too lock his as up throw the key away ?

  • ImWoke

    As we can see, that didn’t happen. Who can take the Supreme Court seriously with Kavanaugh occupying a seat? Trump has this man in his pocket and Kavanaugh will be forever indebted to him. First they stole ta Supreme Court nominee from President Obama. Now they have this outraged man who is unable to control his emotions sitting on the Supreme Court for life.

  • Faithz

    You are exactly right, they refused to even hold a hearing for Judge Garland. But we just have to remember that Vengeance is mine says the Lord..
    I see Serena is getting on with her life, and Osaka has lost two times since her win against
    Serena, but Osaka like so many have got miles , and miles to go before they can catch Serena. And since Kavanaugh got elected after the way he clowned on the stand, Serena need to drop her big mamma's and tell them (Haters) to Kiss the fat part.

  • ImWoke

    Here we go again, before I even had the opportunity to read your response Nikki Hayley has resigned. I’m not sure what to make of her resignation. What I can say about her is that the people of SC (both sides) loved her when she was the governor there. So many negative things are happening daily in this crazy world that we live in that Serena and her tantrum have already been placed in the back of people’s minds. I didn’t even know that Osaka had played again since she defeated Serena. She is a very talented player, but I’m sure she still has a lot to learn. Serena needs to just lay low until her next match and reemerge poised and in control of her game and her emotions . LOL so Kanye West is lunching with Trump today. He’s so far gone that they just need to lock him in a padded room. He’s out of control without the meds.

  • Faithz

    I Lol when u said Kanye to far gone ? Kanye like his Mascot
    Are two real live clowns. Nikki know something we don’t know. Serena invested in something called Survey Monkey
    and made some good money, she’s also endorsed something called blue bag with Allstate Insurance, she’s doing well and I so agree with you about laying low then coming back. Serena will play a mixed double in Australia Aganist Federer, and Bencic on New Year day.. I try to keep up with her. Taylor are helping to get out the vote, and Trump
    Is shook, Rihanna is asking people to vote. I can’t believe Trump m,nkey as don’t believe in global warning, and do not believe over 130 Scientist. I sure have enjoyed reading you.

  • ImWoke

    Kanye is so crazy that he silenced Trump during their meeting. Trump was sitting there looking like WTH. They did a spoof on SNL last night that was somewhat funny. I’ve been wondering what happened to Kanye’s biological father. I thought that they were building upon their relationship? I guess if he’s not been a stable part of his life, be better not step into that out of control blaze named Kanye. It’s really sad to see the change in him since his mother’s passing. I hope and pray that Trump didn’t get rid of Nikki Hayley to make room for that crazy Graham. I think that Trumps disbelief in Global warning is due to his lack of knowledge. All he knows is that it’s hot and cold so in his mind we’re good.

  • Faithz

    Yes something is bad wrong with West, I hope his wife them haven't put something in his drinks to help him to go all the way off, so Kim can be free to marry somebody else who is richer, and white Ect. Trump is a few bricks shy of a load, and has ben born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and knows nothing about the ways of a poor person, Thank goodness for God almighty who have got us safely under his wings. This Global warming is going to cause all kinds of natural disaster, around the world, We have to try , and stay prayed up because we never know when are where Chaos will hit next!!

  • ImWoke

    He’s currently on 60 min saying there’s no proof regarding global warning. I’m just sitting here shaking my head in disbelief. Trump has no concern for disadvantaged citizens. He thinks that it’s their fault that they’re poor.

  • Faithz

    His silly as thinks he know everything God will council him it in due time he's the dumbest president ever?

  • ImWoke

    Amen to that.

  • Faithz

    You are Welcome, I love it when you are in the Building, because you speak the Gospel, and tell it like it is.

  • Dora LaBelle

    You're a bot right?

  • ImWoke

    You and I have a great online friendship. I love knowing that we can disagree and not have to disrespect and tear each other down. I love knowing that we are of different races (I think) but we agree on a lot of the same subjects, not all but a lot and I have much respect for you by the way that you communicate with me. I always just say what I feel without disrespecting or getting into these petty arguments and name calling battles that are so common on the internet.

  • Faithz

    I have much Respect for You as well, thanks for being able to agree to disagree that is what it's all about. Many who visit, are stop by do it often times Looking for a fight.

  • Faithz

    I am Creek, and black, and I am from a huge Family. My Dad was one of 18, and my Boo is the oldest of 13, And I am one of 12. We have a basket ball team Lol. We have twins in the Family. My Boo Mama was a twin, and gave birth to three sets of twins. And I know you may think i am playing but the twin girls two sets of girls , one sister from each sets had twins. We have Dr, Scientist, Chemist , Lawyers and the like in the Family. All hard working, and not asking for a hand out. We was bought up to give a days work for a days pay. And I will be as nice as I can be but can read into bs really easy. Did you read my comment to Auntee Sandra on the post about the "MeToo lady" the post is about her Skin Condition, and her skin Condition. You see so many mean Spirited People on the b!0gs whose lives is in the Crapper, and they are bitter, pressed, and stressed for no dang reason at all.. If you get a chance read it, or i will find it , and post here for you. I like you say what I feel, and if I am posting on somebody, I try to stay close to their truths, facts, and Realness ~

  • ImWoke

    I try to be very careful to what I respond to. When I first started on these sites some of the comments really bothered me.????. I just couldn’t understand why people were being so harsh toward me. Now I have a better handle it, but it’s still very hard for me to deal with the racism.

  • ImWoke

    WOW Faithz you do have a huge family. Im not even sure if I could keep up with the names of so many people. LOL I’m black. I grew up with two older brothers. I have one child, whom I had late in life. He keeps me feeling youthful ?. I’ve received degrees from an all black college and two majority white colleges which gives me an understanding of these racist posts (I think). My parents instilled hard work and independence in me, I am their youngest and only girl. I grew up in a tiny town that had nothing, not even a convenience store. I’m a true country girl although I live in a major city. In my everyday life I try to just keep to myself because this world is crazy and you never know what is in someone else’s head, but I will snap on someone (profanity and all) if I think someone is disrespecting me or mine. I try to keep that side of me locked away, because she is vicious???. Do you ever go in the TMZ comment sections? The racism there is mind blowing. Can’t even believe that they allow people to post such comments. I did not see your post regarding the MeToo lady but will search for it.

  • Faithz

    I hear you on that, I do as well to a Point. See a old saying I have is this... I am as good as Gold, But I will go from Zero to Biish in less than Sixty Seconds. And then you have to consider that many who bl0g are low life's to start with, just looking for trouble. Just be as kind as you can, and when they swing out, You swing right back.

  • Faithz

    Yea I was so surprised when she resigned. But she must have have had a personal reason for doing it. And then again she may have wanted to get out before it get to hot in the kitchen. And no matter how grave things may seem In this World, Just always remember that there's a Man who rides the clouds, and he send the rain, and the shine, the cold, and the warm and He gives us the air we breath, Therefore The president daffy duck ain't running nothing but his mouth.and this World is the Almighty World, and the Fullness therein.

  • Faithz

    Yes we are many, and one of my sister is married into a Family where there are 12 Boys, and 5 Girls, And I am for real. I grew up in the Country. We had a Farm, chicken, pigs, ducks, three huge Gardens. Dad them raised sweet Potatoes,
    white potatoes, greens, corn, green beans, collard green, tomatoes. We even had a Creek running through the Farm. We lived about Five Miles from a Big grave yard with tall , short, flat Headstones, where we used to have a blast playing among the Headstones in the Graveyard. We used to have to pluck them feather off them chickens for the deep freeze, and I swore that when I left home I would never eat another piece of chicken, but girl i love chicken . And we had well water, and when I'd see a frog i vowed to stop drinking water, Lol and a cousin of mine who told me recently that if you think about it, that Frog just let you know the water was safe, She said now a time the frog might die if he's in the water for too long, I told her to stop bringing up our Storied Child hood, Smh about my Huge Family..

  • ImWoke

    You said a mouth full of truth.

  • ImWoke

    I try really hard to not go out swinging. Some of these comments aren’t worth our time or effort.

  • Faithz

    Thank You, Enjoy the rest of Your week end.

  • dblogged

    Nah

  • ImWoke

    Happy Monday. Can’t believe the weekend has come to an end. I just can not get over all of the chaos that Trump has caused within our country. He consumes the news stations and each morning that I wake up they’re reporting on something stupid that he’s done. Yet his approval ratings are going up. People have got to get out and vote during the midterms. I voted on Saturday and there was a decent crowd for a Saturday morning. I’ll just continue to pray and cross my fingers.

  • Faithz

    Dump I call Trump, I also call him the Bully In Chief, because the man has never known what it's like to even get his hands dirty. He was born to Privileged, and has been rich his entire life. I wrote this to
    Screen Name ClaireHuxtable I think their name is...
    Yes that is another Form of Intimidation and fear mongering. American people are smart, and can see through the Bs. The republican remind me of a joke I heard once Marilyn Monroe , was traveling , and her and her driver got lost, but ahead of them, in the distance they saw a light, and they made their way up to this old farm house, and knocked at the door, and the old farmer invited them in, and told Monroe she could sleep with him, while her driver slept on a cot in the kitchen, during the night the farmer told Monroe You know what I want, and she said yes
    You want this whole bed But you are not going to get it. All the Republican can do is run scared because the Democrats is driving them to up a wall, out of their rabbit as minds, and drinking straight Whiskey.
    Always Remember this even If you don't see me here some time, Just Know that This is God's world not trump, and his G00ns, and God owns it, u me and everyone, and everything her, and God will have the last say!!!

  • Faithz

    Oh and before I forget Sloane Steven beat Osaka
    the other day, they are playing the year end season...
    http://www.wtatennis.com/news/steely-stephens-steers-past-osaka-singapore-showdown

  • ImWoke

    I’ve always been a Sloan’s fan. I thought that she would have been the one to replace Serena. She still has time to become the next great in the tennis world. I never saw Osaka coming but I definitely wish her continued success in her sport

  • Faithz

    Yes I love Sloane, she's doing good
    They will play again I think they pls the best
    Of three Matches for the year end Match. I wish them all well.
