Osaka has 'no regrets' over chaotic US Open final

Struggle of the modern black woman: part 2

Osaka had just won her first Grand Slam title after defeating the 23-time major victor Serena Williams at the U.S. Open on Saturday.

Watching the women's final between Williams and Naomi Osaka from his Atlanta home, Aaron saw Williams react angrily when chair umpire Carlos Ramos warned her about receiving coaching, something that happens commonly in tennis but is rarely sanctioned.

According to Australian newspaper The Herald Sun and its cartoonist, Mark Knight, a cartoon of Serena Williams that echoes the harmful caricatures of black men and women once drawn in a shameful part of U.S. history isn't racist.

To combat this, some umpires are weighing the idea of saying no every time they are asked to officiate a Williams match, unless she apologizes to Ramos.

Ramos was unperturbed, and Williams' rage continued: she was soon given a point penalty for smashing and making bits of her racket.

The CEO of USTA, the governing body of tennis in the US, was asked if she believes female players are held to different standards than men.

Following the backlash, Knight rebuked criticism that the cartoon was racist and sexist, and suspended his Twitter account to "protect his family and friends", the Sun wrote Tuesday. "It's about bad behaviour, certainly not race".

Williams was given a 3rd code violation in the 2nd set of the U.S. Open Final, resulting in the loss of a game. As an African-American woman, so this whole business that I am some sort of racist, calling on racial cartoons from the past, it's just made up. In the midst of losing Saturday's final, the 23-time Grand Slam champion smashed her racquet and called the umpire a "thief" and a "liar".

"Three days before I had drawn a cartoon about Nick Kyrgios being led off by the ears, like you used to do with your children", he said. In Knight's cartoon, Williams was seen jumping up and down having spat out a dummy as the umpire asks Haitian-Japanese tournament victor Naomi Osaka "can't you just let her win?". The umpires take a lot of crap from male and female multi millionaire players. "I'm not going to really think too far ahead", Osaka said.

"For me, I don't feel sad because I wouldn't even know what I'm expected to feel", she told a news conference in Yokohama ahead of the Pan Pacific tournament that begins on Monday. Then Williams got a game penalty for the verbal abuse she directed towards Ramos.
