US Open: Barbora Strycova slams Serena Williams' 'Bullsh--t' meltdown

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) also supported Williams' claims, while Billie Jean King, founder of the WTA and victor of 12 grand slam singles titles, told CNN Tuesday that though Williams was "out of line", Ramos had aggravated the situation.

But lately - as shown by a recent spate of worldwide sporting squabbles, from Nike's Colin Kaepernick ad to the Serena Williams saga - this ideal of apolitical sport has slowly revealed itself to be a luxury of a select few, a privilege only afforded to those who have benefited from the rules set by society - and sport's - increasingly outdated institutions. She said on Tuesday both sides shared the blame for the incident.

But the U.S. Tennis Association and Women's Tennis Association have come out in support of Williams, which has angered the umpire community.

Williams was issued a code violation for receiving coaching during the second set, then was penalized a point for smashing her racket.

Williams, clearly unhappy with the ruling, went on to berate Ramos for his judgment, repeatedly demanding that he apologize for branding her a cheater.

For what was Serena Williams penalised? Speaking on ESPN, McEnroe backed Serena, who called the chair umpire Carlos Ramos as a "thief".

But it seems as she had been preparing for the moment for a long time.

"We should not let her record, as glowing as it is, overshadow the fact that on this day, in this match Williams was wrong", Ings wrote in The Sydney Morning Herald. "It made me feel like it was a sexist remark", she told reporters on Saturday.

"They are always with their dogs behind, their team", she said. "I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality".

The move could be smart business from Adidas, pitting the younger Osaka against the 36-year-old Williams, who is one of the most prominent faces of rivals Nike, and who will have no doubt lost some public favor after her shocking outburst during their match.
