Serena William is 'fighting for women'?!

    There was another case recently where a woman was penalised for removing her shirt whereas men who do the same are not penalised. In fact she had a sports bra on and turned away from the crowd, whereas men sometimes sit without shirt with no punishment. The punishment in that case was bizarre. So sexist rulings do occur in tennis.

    But it's not really the same offence - a woman removing her top is very different to a man removing his top. Only in bizarro-leftist world where there are no differences between men and women is it the same ... but in that world, there should be no separate competition for women so none of them would be playing in the top tournaments anyway. You can't have your cake and eat it too ... it's either one thing or another.

    Personally, as much as I'm all for women taking their tops off, I don't think it should happen at tennis matches. Boohoo, that's different to men. But so is the fact that there is a huge industry built around women earning money for taking their tops off. Because it's different ...

    And how does it fit with other sports where women in revealing outfits have been banned (against those women's wishes)? What exactly is the policy that is pro-women and fair?

    Serena is a phenomenal tennis player but she thinks she’s still in Compton. Poor female! Such a sore loser and can’t take being told anything contrary to her opinions.

    She will start losing more and more. She's certainly a powerhouse, but at 36 she will find the youngsters ten and fifteen years younger will just catch her up. Can't fight nature.

    Now she can coolly and gracefully play for another couple of years raking in the lolly and the plaudits like Federer (just turned 37) might but getting beaten more and more, or she can have hissy fits and tantrums.

    If the latter then she could just throw in the towel.

    Serena made it all about her, and help ruin a crowning achievement for a young player who idolized her.

    Its always about her.

    She and her coach cost her the game and maybe she knew she wasn't going to win over her opponent so she threw a tantrum.

    Her ego got the best of her in this match.

    She knew the rule of taking coaching from personal coaches during the match, so technically her coach started the problem.

    Her omnipresent ego couldn't handle the judgment by the Ref on the cheating call so she went into a emotional tyrant.

    The only question one would have to ask is where was Jehovah to help her out in the situation ?

    She seems to thank Jehovah when she wins .

    Did Jehovah forlorn her now ?

    IMO it was pure gamesmanship (not a good thing). She was being easily beaten having lost the 1st set 6-2, knew she was going to lose the match (down in the 2nd set) and pulled this stunt to try and put off her opponent. It would have been outrageous if she'd have won this match after that.

    But it didn't work and now she looks like an idiot so she's whining about unfairness and sexism. How on earth can sexism be a factor when it's two women playing against each other?

    She was beaten, thoroughly and fairly. Osaka was the better player and played some fantastic shots that made Williams look like an oaf on court.

    Was Serena “sticking up for women’s rights” when she threatened violence against a female line judge in 2009 at the US Open or when she abused a female umpire during 2011 US Open or when she threatened to sue a female umpire at Wimbledon in 2016...? Asking for a friend

    In the woman’s case she had a sports bra on, which is effectively a top. So I think it is roughly equivalent, and pretty bizarre to penalise a woman for wearing a sports bra (briefly, apologetically and in a corner) and not a man for wearing nothing. (Openly and for extended periods)

    How on earth can sexism be a factor when it's two women playing against each other?

    The claim was that men are not punished for the same offence because they are viewed as being “passionate about the game”, whereas a woman is punished for the same offence because she is “throwing a hissy fit”. I don’t know if that claim is true or not. She would need to point to credible examples where men are not punished for the same offence.
