    Women eh....

    Former Grand Slam champion and BBC presenter Sue Barker says Williams "has a point" in her criticism of the umpire.

    "I've sat courtside watching the men ranting at umpires and they haven't been given a violation," said Barker.

    12-time Grand Slam champion and all-round tennis legend Billie Jean King has backed Williams.

    She said: "When a woman is emotional, she's 'hysterical' and she's penalised for it. When a man does the same, he's 'outspoken' and there are no repercussions.

    "Thank you, Serena Williams, for calling out this double standard. More voices are needed to do the same."

    I thought Serena overstepped the mark and threw shade on Osaka, tbh.

    And detracted from the fact she was thrashed. . .

    I thought her behaviour was totally unacceptable.

    No, it's all to do with sexism, apparently, h. Not because she's a cůnt or anything.

    I can only assume she's keeping the racism card up her sleeve for if this really goes bad for her.

    Not her, but others are saying this is racist...
