Serena Williams melts down, cartoonist branded racist

The Herald Sun, owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp (nws), provoked outrage Tuesday with a cartoon of Williams at the U.S. Open because it portrayed Williams in a style that evoked the 19th-century 'sambo' style of depicting African Americans.

"The Sept. 10 cartoon not only exudes racist, sexist caricatures of both women, but Williams' depiction is unnecessarily Sambo-like", the NABJ Sports Task Force wrote in a statement Monday. They took it away from Serena - she had chance to come back.

However some Twitter users weren't so quick to forget the reason for the cartoon in the first place.

Afterwards, Williams suggested that Ramos and other umpires are tolerant of worse criticism from male players. Serena ruined Naomi's day, ' one user wrote.

Here's what happened: When Osaka appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, she told the host and comedian that she has a crush on Jordan, who played Erik Killmonger in Black Panther earlier this year. I asked my daughter learn from it, ' another added.

Michael Miller, executive chairman of News Corp Australasia, which publishes the Melbourne's Herald Sun, defended Knight.

'It had nothing to do with gender or race, ' he said in the publication.

Naomi Osaka's trophy presentation at the 2018 U.S. Open was unusual, to say the least.

She also called Ramos a "thief" for taking a point from her. Ramos, meanwhile, was paid £370 ($480) as a "standard daily rate" for umpiring, The Times says.

After the match, Williams would declare, "I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff".

The last certainly has not been heard over US Open ladies final outburst as Umpires are considering boycotting Serena Williams' future games.

Tennis great John McEnroe, one of the game's most tempestuous characters in his playing days, said the sport must find a way to allow players to express feelings and inject their personality into the game while adhering to certain rules.

Ramos has received support from the International Tennis Federation (ITF). "Ramos undertook his duties as an official according to the relevant rule book", it added.

Martina Navratilova, an 18-time Grand Slam singles champion, also took a swipe at Williams' behaviour, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

It was hard to miss the fireworks igniting on the court Saturday inside Arthur Ashe Stadium, but as US Open champ Naomi Osaka recalls, she wasn't exactly in tune.
