Rafael Nadal dragged in to Serena Williams ‘bulls***’ by fellow ace

Incessant internet and social media has made us more politically engaged, more woke.

For a prime example of this muddying of the Gatorade, look no further than Serena Williams.

While winding up a tour of Asia with Under Armour, he was asked about Serena Williams's meltdown when an incident with the chair umpire escalated during the U.S. Open women's championship Saturday.

In the second set of Williams' match against Naomi Osaka, Ramos warned Williams for receiving coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches.

"When you're little you're taught not to look at if your opponent gets angry, you're told to just turn around and try to focus, so I tried to do that", Osaka said.

Osaka also said that she felt confident going into the match that she would win.

Things seemed to settle down as Williams went on to break Osaka for a 3-1 lead, but she gave the break right back in the next game with a pair of double faults, prompting the former champion to smash her racquet on the court. "I find it interesting that she did it only when she was losing".

For the first time since the match, Ramos has spoken up, telling Tribuna Expresso in his native Portugal that "I'm fine, given the circumstances". Calling him a "thief" reportedly earned her a full game penalty.

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. For me, it blows my mind.

The six-time US Open champion was handed a warning for a coaching violation before being deducted a point for smashing her racquet. Everyone who has experienced discrimination can empathise with her passionate plea.

Osaka said during the interview that she initially didn't know what was going on because she turned away from the scene as Williams approached Ramos and started yelling.

But much of the ensuing outrage chose to ignore Williams' claims of unfair treatment. Others chose to point out that Williams' actions had taken away the spotlight from the 20-year-old first time victor Osaka, who became the first Japanese to win a grand slam title.

The umpires are now allegedly putting forth a united front to stick it to a woman who is already being hammered online by white news outlets, including one that portrayed Williams' as a tantrum-throwing Sambo looking baby with oversized lips and grotesque facial features.
