  • Sore loser.

  • Such an entitled women. She thinks just because she has kids it means that she could never have an fault. Also the double standard is amazing because if an men did this to an women it would had been harassment. I also hated how she could called him sexist and racist. I hate how she and other women stan feminism yet think they can attack and harass men without no consequences. Feminism was made for women to have equal rights to men.

  • At 9:11 the umpire was already quit on his chair but Serena could not stop arguing until she called him a thief there goes the patience and the verbal abuse,, if she could only shut her mouth Naomi could had enjoy the moment .. although I think this will not end here, coz for the next season people do not forget,, Naomi must win AO 2019 to taste the sweetness of Grand Slam winner ,,

  • When events happen it’s never one thing. It’s usually multiple things coming together to flip the switch. I think it was a little of both plus Patrick not keeping his hand motions to himself. I speculate that Serena was feeling the pressure and she cracked. She was being beaten by Naomi playing her own game. It was close and Serena wasn’t breaking away. Naomi was matching her easily. It was too hot in the kitchen for too long lol. If Serena didn’t win this tournament she would have to start alllllllll oovvvveerrrr again at the Australian and time is not her friend. She got age, motivation, motherhood, an off season to manage and all these new whippersnappers being led by Osaka who have no fear and are not intimidated and can also hit a big ball. Let’s not Forget the regular cast of spoilers too. She needs two more to pass Margaret and the competition it’s getting fierce. The field is catching up to her. She was feeling it and the incident contributed to her “snap”. Btw I don’t think she was cheating with her coach. Don’t know why he said what he said. It’s odd and irresponsible right!?

  • pls stahp cringe lord

  • Sexism. Serena only yelled at the official because he was male.

  • Well he has history and precadent for taking being treated like that by men, but never against women, so........

  • Sore loser, manipulative, and clearly on steroids.

  • I would find it funny to see a man tennisser say this is sexist you just gave me a penelty because I am a man and not a women. Later at press conference I am fighting for the weak man that are alone againt the crazy women

  • Pathetic ...I feel bad for Naomi osaka

  • Well that’s the thing not all umpires are the same so you’d have to look into Ramos’ past games where he was the umpire

  • It's obvious that she C H E A T S !!!! On her DIET!!!! those corn-feed thighs don't lie...

  • Sore loser

  • Sore loser, good job OsAkA

  • This thread is definitely for sore losers that are not paying attention to the things Serena said that were without question accurately said. Grow up kids.

  • Serena and Venus Williams were born GUYS. They are transgenders. That's why they beat the pants off their female competitors for years. He never had a baby. That was all staged to squelch the rumors that he is a guy. He doesn't even have a feminine face. He slammed that racket so hard it broke, because he's a guy.

  • Sore looser

  • "I never lost anything in my life" nigga never lost his virginity oof.

  • LOL it was because she's a woman, that's hilarious XDDD C'mon!!!! -_-

  • The racket was a victim of domestic violence.

  • "I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and ALL KINDS OF STUFF" lol what.

  • Sore Loser

  • I honestly don’t think she was cheating. BUT she did get the penalty and should of taken it without acting like such a sore loser and smashing her racket. WTF

  • I think Williams forgot that her opponent was also a WOMAN! Duh!

  • Sexism I hated that umpire anyways. But take nothing away from Osaka who played a great match.

  • Sore loser

  • She shot off her mouth to the wrong umpire. She continued. She shouldn't have. She needs to do anger management. And her coach shouldn't have been cheating. As a woman I'm not happy that she declared sexism and took the spotlight

  • America uncovered is doing the devil's work

  • Always white people reviewing African greats. Who sent u? Stop dragging this. Everyone done it

  • sore loser & crybaby

  • Sore loser

  • Nah, it was ruined by serena's temper....apparently serena didnt live up to her (naomi) idolization.

  • I don't think Serena can look at other cases for a reason to justify her own claim that the umpire was sexist, even if it's to provide context. What matters is that in the game that Serena played, Serena broke the rules. There's reason to believe she may have used coaching. She broke the tennis racket. She verbally insulted the umpire. She should be given consequences accordingly, regardless of how other umpires interact with other players in separate games.

  • "I call him thief", and he took my game. That made ME FEEL like it was a sexist remark. Wtf? She also forgot to say you will never umpire a game of mine as long as you live

  • Imagine seeing your opponent, the world’s best, throwing a fit on the court, and calling the umpire names. Such a disgrace to her family, and her opponents who were beating her...

  • Two women plays game, judge says one was acting out. Is he sexist even though there are two females? How come both of them didn’t lose in that case?

  • Give serena a break he is only making a living.It wouldn't be easy.Transworld sport.

  • Definitely just a sore loser

  • I never lose... mainly because I don't try.

  • why even have womens tennis? why not just simply tennis? womens tennis itself is sexism

  • I got a little bit more aids every time he said penalized

  • wow you beat me in sports because you're a male! you're sexist!!! what a joke lmao

  • Fucking whore

  • Retarded women every time they start to lose or loose they start to say someone is sexist

  • Puh-en-uh-n-uh-l-ize-duh

  • Serena! What a piece of S**T !!! Using her influence to play the sexist card!! Damaging the real feminist struggle encouraging women to be irrational and manipulative to get what they want.

  • Sore loser

  • The ending was so sad.

  • Sore loser

  • Fighting for women's right & equality? That's some incredible bollocks, Serena.

  • She's done! That's how she will be remembered.

  • it isn't sexism as she wasn't calming down when she was asked to

  • Penislise

  • She looks like a rhinoceros

  • Never cheated? She cheated the wife of her coach by sleeping with him!

  • She needs to grow up

  • Serena Williams is the biggest cry baby. She finally gets what she deserves. She's full of Bullshit.

  • Wtf she was against another female so how could that even be sexism lol

    • She meant that since the umpire is a man and she's a woman, he was treating her differently. Pretty ridiculous statement to make, after all the crap she did, throwing trantrums and rackets like a little baby.

  • Her opponent is a woman?

  • I hear so many people bringing up the fact that male players have said worse things, and have gotten away with it, but why would that make it okay for her to argue with and insult the umpire? Just because "other men" have done it before, it's not a valid argument

  • 0:06 I would have had so much respect if you said “even my virginity”

  • Sorena willoser

  • Another black woman with victim complex why I'm not surprised

  • Serena is a trash just like Michelle Obama and what they both have in common they are mens and they don't recognize

  • This Ladies is Gents is why when your kids play sports, you SHOULD keep score, because learning how to deal with failure is as important as learning how to be a gracious winner. Sernina Williams should admit that she let her temper get the better of her and appologize rather than screaming sexism. It was her own lack of sportsman like behavior that cost here all those points in a match she was already losing.

  • Roses are red Serena is black If she loses She gets mad

  • sore loser

  • Serena Williams get over it u lost you angry black woman! 0_o

  • sore loser

  • Sexism, did you not read what happened?

  • I would love to see what would Serena have done in an alternate reality where the match was exactly the same, but the umpire was a black woman.

  • sore loser

  • Sexism? Is she serious? She does realize that her OPPONENT was a woman?

  • Loser

  • Honestly this behavior is terrible. I'd love to see her banned from the sport for crap like this, and I'm surprised that she still has a black / woman card to play after this.

  • *I prefer pew news*

  • That MAN is the greatest the greatest female tennis player ever.

  • so you a women and playing against another women you are getting penalized while the other women is not, how in any way is that related to sexism.

  • What a spaz, jeez

  • Peenalize

  • I would swear at her and beat her 10/10

  • *peenalised*

  • Sore loser

  • I’d say both.. Serena shouldn’t have carried on with the argument and broke her racket, that’s on her. But the umpire wasn’t really in the right either, I see people in the comments like, “pOoR guY! HaVinG tO deAL wiTh hEr! He’S thE ViCtiM.” Not really, as you saw in the video, a male player said that he has (regrettably) said worse to the Umpire, and hadn’t gotten a game penalty (and so had other male tennis players). He could’ve just given her the game penalty because she was a woman, or because she kept going on with the argument. Who knows?

  • Lol when whamen are the main reason why their own credibility is going down the drain.

  • I can use andys logic and sodomise children as long as I can get a male tennis player who has done worst things.

  • Sore transgender who is ugly on inside and outside!! I don't see how this could ever remotely be sexism!?!?

  • So obvious that she is a sore loser, using her female privilege to get all the media on her side.

  • Sore loser

  • This poor umpire. He's just doing his job.

  • Getting caught cheating is neither racism nor sexism. And playing the "you are racist/sexist" card for justifying cheating is just disrespectful for the people who are victims of racism/sexism.

  • The last sentence of the title pretty much sums it up.

  • sore loser. like stubbing your toe sore.

  • Sore motherfucking loser

  • Didn’t she lose to a woman?

  • I can confirm she is a sore loser

  • His forehead is huge

  • she should'ev just took the couching penalty and continued the match.

  • Oh my god I want to see serina williams get a proper punishment for doing the things she did , she was a sore loser and neyomi played better . The umpire did what was right and I am sickened by serina's actions , ruining this moment for neyomi who played better , I feel so sorry for neyomi being booed by serina's mindless sheep fans

  • The ones who were booing should be ashamed of themselves. They destroyed the probably most important moment of a hardworking athlete who worked her ass off to be there and achieve her dream. Pigs. Poor Naomi. She didn‘t deserve that.
