im guessing the only reason the coaching was given a warning is because it had been ongoing, maybe the umpire caught a glimpse but not enough to make a call, then saw it again and then finally again and decided enough and gave the warning. Since the coach admitted to it thats my guesstimate and assumption, with all the risks that implies.

These guys’ and especially Molly have no idea what they are talking about. She was given a game penalty due to the previous two code violations. It’s a build of violations towards a game penalty. She also has a history of berating Line Judges and Chair Umpires when a call doesn’t go her way. This is not a man/woman thing, it’s a Serena throwing a tantrum (AGAIN) thing.

Stephen A says that the umpire has a record of being fair with men and women: which is understandable, but the point that Serena was trying to bring across was that other MALE tennis players get away with slamming their rackets so why is it that at this crucial stage in a match which signifies whether a record can be broken does it have to be a huge problem? Naomi did not win the game fair and square which is why Serena was pleading for a whole game to not go to Osaka.

While the umpire could have overlooked Serena's violations, he still had the authority to enforce each one of them. It was really up to Serena to move past this regardless of her personal feelings, refocus on the match, and take her grievances through the proper channels after the match. Greatness doesn't always mean you get it right or act appropriately and unfortunately, she let her emotions get the best of her. It left a nasty stain on this match and tarnished Osaka's triumphant moment!

male players who throw their racket "all the time" like the women on this show said also receive code violation penalties. Serena threw a tantrum and maybe she didn't deserve the first violation but it is still uncommon for a player to receive a single violation in a match let alone 3. Even if they were controversial decisions she still ruined Osakas moment and she has lost the little respect i had left for her due to the way she has dealt with losses over the course of here career. Good riddance when she retires

Max is a product of our time; he can't speak his mind because of possible negative feedback....aka white man privilege. Stephen is allowed to because of years of struggle. Anyhow, Stephen's points were stronger. He had proof that the chair umpire has a history of making these calls on both the men and women's tour. The lady in the middle is only there because she's a woman(sorry, I don't know her name). She mentioned that men slam their rackets all the time....and they get fined and penalized all the time. It's ok to be emotional but have facts when you're debating.

Just so you ESPN stars know, "this referee" is recognized as the best umpire in action today. He is the best ténis referee and you are just mad Serena lost. If her coach admited he gave instructions it's because he knew the umpire got him and there's footage supporting it. And no, Molly, you don't play tenis. When you get a warning and don't stop your erratic behaviour, it will accumulate and award you worse penalties. Blaming the referee when he was right was a disgrace in this show.

Saying Serena is wrong is actually wrong. If you know Tennis you know she broke the rule. True: however every fucking coach does this. Every player does this. You need to ref fairly. If you call her out for it you have to call all of them. Pure and simple which is what she is saying. Every major male player does it. She wants fairness. She didn’t get it. If you can explain why it’s ok for some people to do it and not others than please do. If you are just going to state it’s agains the Rules no one is debating that not even Serena.

As I wrote at the time to a "brotha", and he loved it.  "Basically, Serena is full of her own self importance and deserved everything she got. She is an insult to everything she claims to stand for and has set so many things backwards because of her petulance and infantile hissy fits. I have been complaining quite a lot recently about tennis stars acting like they owned the word, instead of them owing the world everything. A prime example was Djokovic, who I suspect has been put firmly in his place by all around him because he is now acting more like an adult and not a spoilt 6 year old. Did you see the match when a kid couldn't understand when he was called out and penalised for hitting a ball into a chair umpire's eye and injuring him "because everyone does it". And that is what Williams and her ilk are responsible for. She should be ashamed of herself and apologise to the world. fyi I have read and watched reactions and reports from around the world and the telling thing is that the only country where Williams gets support is the USA, which is also an indictment of the sorry state the USA has sunk into. I remember JFK with his ”My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. Trump, Williams et al : "My fellow Americans, ask not what you can do for your country, ask how much your country can subsidise and support you, whilst you avoid doing anything remotely meaningful in life."

The way I look at it think of it like a ticket sure the cop might not have been justified in the initial ticket but how you react to him is dependent on you if you assault an office Bc of a dumb ticket you shouldn’t blame the officer the first violation might not have been necessary but 2 and 3 were solely on her all she had was a warning everything else that actually made a difference was Bc she was a crybaby

if Serena was a man they would all be happy with the decision except people don't care and if you say a women is wrong your reputation could be ruined. I know that men use to get away with it a few decades ago but now officials crack down on rules. if I was to call someone sexist it would be Serena as she just says your a man , I'm a women therefore if you say I'm wrong your sexist. Playing the gender or race card ECT isn't equality , if you can do that you have the upper hand in society (something like that was said by the late xxxtentacion, rip x)

not only Serena acts up. But she does it that worse times during championship matches. This is not first time this has happened in the U.S Open with her. It is a mental weakness to be able to move on from any perceived in justice. She is a 37 year old adult and she should me mature enough to know the game is not over and she still has a chance to win it all if she focus at the task at hand.

Let’s face it. She got her ass kicked by a young hungry lioness. And sometimes it’s hard for those who’ve been on top to accept that it’s coming close to the end. Sloan Stephens. And the young lady Osaka aren’t afraid of her. And they want to beat her and take her spot. What’s wrong with that ? The ref didn’t break the rules. He enforced them. But Osaka took her out of her game and derailed that Serena mindset.

The first guy here is a moron. His argument is basically the application of the rules depends on the context in which they are being followed/broken. So because it's a close but still unconfirmed loss for Serena he should've been more lenient with her across all rules? So if I'm on my deathbed I can commit crimes without penalty? It's going to be game over for me very soon regardless so fuck all the people I harm by doing so? Fucking children. And just to play devil's advocate: in the same way the umpire knew what was at stake, maybe Serena did too and this was her way of buying more time? Can't argue one side without looking at the opposite side because then your 'objective' argument becomes a baseless opinion. Exactly like this dickhead's and Serena's 😁😂
