No need to clarify; She (Serena) Was Wrong! Period!
Her coaching was just a warning. Breaking her racquet was a point penalty. Insulting the umpire was a game lost .. Why is this so hard to understand
He didn't give her the 3rd code violation just because she called him a thief. Let's get that out of the way and cleared up. He gave her it because from the second she got the 1st code violation, she berated him, she repeatedly shouted and screamed at him, demanding apologies and to take away the 1st warning, she threatened his career and how he would never umpire on her court again, and she just kept going and going, i think it spanned over a 3 or 4 game period, where she wouldn't let it go, and the Umpire let all that pass, gave her all that time to calm herself down, and move on. She didn't do this, instead she called him a liar and a thief, questioning his integrity, and he was left with no choice but to give that 3rd code violation. It's that simple, she in this situation was 100% wrong
Excellent, calm and rational discussion.
She was wrong, from every angle, she’s totally ruined the final!
That lady is so well spoken and clear. LOVE HER
This old lady and Stepehn A Smith are the only black people who have the ball to come out and say Serena was wrong. And I agree with them.
Wow this woman puts it's so eloquently. Bam, Serena
"Was Serena Williams' US Open Punishment Fair?" - NO, it was blatantly unfair ... it should have been MUCH MORE! And why should the umpire exercise restraint after being called a cheat, a thief & a liar? One should know their place - that was a good lesson given.
It was fair. Well done Osaka and the umpire. Shame on Serena, the crowd, the feminists and her other deluded supporters in this issue.
Not Fair it all, they should have suspended Serena for the next match. Serena drew the entire sport in disrepute, and manipulated the narrative with lies and false accusations. Serena is a BULLY with a platform, and it's time that Williams was held accountable
Toni Wiley, you are the first black woman who has come out and said Serena was wrong and I applaud you! On top of that you are the Executive Director of a Tennis Enrichment Center so your opinion is from an expert. No excuses there are rules in place and consequences. Thank you!
Toni Wiley has my respect... Very logical thinking and a real appreciation of what happened.
Restrain himself because it was the US open final? No can't agree with that. It's exactly because it was the final, the most important match of the competition that tennis values should be upheld to the highest standard. What happened in that court was a disgrace to tennis and that kind of behaviour should never be acceptable. Also Naomi isn't beneath the rules. It would be unfair to her if the umpire didn't enforce the rules and rewarded the person that broke the rules. Ramos did a favor to tennis and to tennis fans that night and Naomi deserved that win.
I thought being a black woman she was going to support Serena but wow so eloquently, impartially, dispassionately, equitably, intellectually and factually put. Toni Wiley Thank you.
It absolutely was. She broke the rules and she paid the price. It was by the book.
I have read several articles about the controversy in the U.S. 2018 women's U.S. Open and I have scanned several 'You Tube' videos as well and listened over and over. I must admit that this lady, Toni Wiley is a very smart woman and very articulate. She was very direct to the point in her responses when asked questions. On top of that, she is a black woman who spoke up very objectively against what Serena did.
You are in the final of the most biggest tennis tournament and you are annoyed the umpire is playing by the rules and setting an example? Go play a different sport then.
Wonderfully put by the young lady in the white. I believe her name was Toni. It is the best explanation that I’ve heard of this particular situation.
She broke the rules, plain and simple.
