    No. She got crushed. It was something like 6-2, 6-4. I could be wrong but it's something close to that. She got spanked. As a side note, I've always wondered why men have to play best of 5, and women only Best of 3.

    I suppose they think women can't handle 5. They can. She WAS crushed, was a rude player (she cheated, she broke her raquet in a tizzy fit, she argued with the ump),..AND she was fairly beaten which was why she was so mad. She was trying to spook her opponent who was smart, she turned her back on her when she was acting up so she wouldn't get rattled. Serena just lost a BIG doubles match as well. Time for her to retire and stop pushing the envelope b4 she's losing all of the time. Go out in style...

    Nobody has ever really said for sure, but back in the day when they were pushing for equal prize money, women playing best of 5 was most definitely on the table. The ITF obviously didn't agree to that. Why? It is suggested that the reasoning is that scheduling would be nearly impossible to have both women and men play best of 5 during grand slams. (at all other tournaments, the men also play best of 3 btw.... same as women). I would also assert that the directors and networks understand that mens ...

    Thankfully Osaka isn't whiteThese women of the view would have lost their mindand some how blamed Trump

    fax that statement can't be any closer to the truth

  • soccerj75 (Sep 11, 2018)

    Serena Williams is the perfect example of the narcissistic, spoiled Western woman where it's always the man's fault no matter what. Stay away from these...creatures, guys.

    Be Berean what does that have to do with anything? Such a stupid statement omg ahahahhaha

  • Mark (Sep 11, 2018)

    C'mon ladies. Get your facts right before you discuss the matter. The same umpire punished male players (Djokovic, Murray and Nadal) in the past for similar violations of conduct as well. Rules are there to be adhered to. It wasn't harsh. He simply did his job. First, a verbal warning. Next, a point penalty. Subsequently, a game penalty. Go check the rule book before you start accusing people.Now just give credit to Naomi for playing lights out.

    Again, these View broads don't have a clue. John McEnroe was DISQUALIFIED at the Australian Open. I'm surprised that the same thing did not happen to Serena especially after the 3d (!) violation. Tennis is so anti-MEN. Might I add that men play 3 to 5 sets per match, whereas the women only play 2 to 3. So why are the women paid the same? I wonder where are the feminists on this??

  • Sendra Kes (Sep 17, 2018)

    And bringing the topic of McEnroe for this match era is irrelevant. Like we accept Marijuana today, never back then. Like the Women tolerance of Men harassment back then, not now. Every year, the old record is broken. Point is, the World change and so as the people.

  • That tennis racket didn’t stand a chance.

    they need to fire these corruption judges

  • Atl Native (Sep 11, 2018)

    Serena Williams is a horrible looser, her lost reminded me of how Hillary Clinton took her election lost

  • wouter rood en geel (Sep 20, 2018)

    Im not american, but how i think is that hilary Clinton is 100% corrupt

  • LAMOOOW (Sep 17, 2018)

    Think of the tragedy if she became president. HOOF. can't believe u guys didn't understand what already went on with Obama!

  • Grati T. (Sep 11, 2018)

    WOW!!!! when clueless people talk about things that they don't understand!There is no excuse for such a behavior! if the umpire applies the rules he is sexist?!!! Are u kiding me?!! u forgot to accuse him of racism too!! :))) unbelievable!!!!If u use sexism as an excuse for such a bevavior u are making this type of behavior legit and give a bad exemple to the younger generations! Serena has a huge responsability as a role model. To hide behind sexism is just embarrasing!!

    Thank You! (also, meow).

  • Thomas Hodel (Sep 14, 2018)

    You are right

  • Sharon Ann Rowland (Sep 12, 2018)

    These presenters are stupid, the only person who had a cheating coach, who broke a racket, who abused the ref, and consequently broke 3 rules of the game was Serina Williams - she was losing and her ego couldn’t take it - and this is the second time that Naomi has beaten her

  • Roger B (Sep 14, 2018)

    agree 100

  • Sunil Thomas (Sep 11, 2018)

    These comments are coming from people that have no understanding of the sport and its history. They seem to suggest that there was some sort of sexism involved in these penalties. This is the same umpire that have penalized male superstars like Djokovic, Nadal and Murray at the French Open and Wimbledon in the past. The facts are clear, Serena's coach did give coaching signals, she did break her racquet purposefully. Then Serena kept on badgering the umpire repeatedly. She kept on saying "you owe ...

    KingSal12 There is little point in refuting yet another OPINION put forward as FACT. Your opinion is detailed more by your values than what happened in the tennis match. Values expressed by ben shapiro, steven crowder and rubin. You appear the typical right winger and unworthy of further attention. Go and laugh that off.

  • KingSal12 (Sep 26, 2018)

    +Black Goliath This is so sad. You can't even refute my point 😂😂😂
