1) #SerenaWilliams is a national embarrassment

Didn't cheat? Coach admitted cheating.
Broke a racquet
Told umpire "I have a daughter"
Verbally abused umpire, called him a thief
"Men do a lot worse, b/c I'm a woman you take a game from me?"

2) Then she cried on court, playing the victim.

The crowd was berating the umpire from the stands. The commentators were biased. Serena stole all the happiness from the winner Naomi Osaka.

America looks terrible over this.

3) This is how #NewYorkCity fans behave on a world stage?


They get this way when they lose, right Hillary? All #BlueWave2018 voters. Bitter, sore losers.

With regards to the Serena - Ramos #UsOpenFinal #USOpen officiating controversy, I notice that nearly all professional commentators & tennis players think Ramos did not handle the match well. Here's few for your consideration:

1/ If only TECH (high-speed cameras + line and net sensors) were used #UsOpenFinal Women Championship would’ve been only about the PLAYERS, their skill, their luck, their errors...
2/ Instead it was CONTEST of HUMAN misjudgment—not CONTEST of skill

HUMAN ref misjudged/overreacted to human communication (Serena, coach)

...triggered HUMAN defense (Serena) + protest of human (ref) misjudgment

...Serena protest was deemed overreaction + punished by human ref
3/ NO reason TODAY for a chair umpire.

As Buffett said of newspapers. If the internet existed first, newspapers wouldn’t.

If technology (high-speed cameras + net & line sensors) existed first, tennis umpires wouldn’t.

I went to a party and was kind of sad about missing the #USOpenFinal and came back and opened fb and every single post in my feed was about Serena and Naomi being robbed by a racist fuckshit referee and I am afraid to read further than what I have seen. My heart hurts already.
What I know already is that @usopen is part of the white supremacist apparatus that robs Black people of moments of joy. Not just Serena and Naomi but also all of us who see ourselves in them. Trash can. Y’all are a dump.
The @usopen officially found a way to make it so that in an all Black final, a Black-Asian final, there were no Black or Asian winners. Even when we win, we can’t win. What a lesson.
