I can't believe the number of apologists for her behavior there are out there in pundit land. And they nearly all ask the same question- why don't men get game penalties for mouthing off at the ump? Even sports journalists ask the question. I don't know if they are completely ignorant of the rules of tennis or are just playing dumb in support of ideology. The reason men don't get game penalties are either/or because they pull their heads in after reaching a point penalty, and they don't call the ump a thief, a liar and a cheat.

On a side note, I hear that there is EU legislation pending that will attempt to stop people posting links like that. Didn't get the detail. Will have to follow up.

I can see the racist tone in that cartoon, but again it is only a fact.

Most terrorist activity in the world is carried out by people who are Islamic followers.

Most terrorist activity is financially supported from the Arab world, perhaps by misguided individuals, but also some governments and officials.

Most terror acts are targeted at innocent people and at events which are known to have large numbers gathered.

In my post, the word most means about 70 to 80% at least.

When some gun crazed white American starts shooting out of a las vegas window, the media are all over it, but I do not see the civil rights and left wing people calling for a stop on cartoonists drawing white people killing the masses.

To be equal and have everyone treated the same, you wipe the slate clean and start from scratch. you do not try and be biased towards the colonisers and elitists, who have tortured and harassed you.


If you are unwilling to not forget the past, but to start from scratch, then you will always be a slave.
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

That child should be removed from those serial abusers, and placed with an indigenous family in Tennant Creek with a slab of XXXX and a goon bag - it would be a far safer environment!

Go to google and watch the Serena Williams v Kleisters match in 2009
(i think )       Exactly the same thing happened .

An embarrassment like you would rarely see in a lifetime .

The great Obese-- horse should be on the first float to a knackery ,
Just like MaCinroe of years ago =     always at a struggling time where they destroy their opponents concentration.

   Damaged Tennis ,    The Young Winners Hour of glory and the people lined up for the awards would have resented being there.

Smash a Racquet =   Loss of SET.

Naomi Osaka is reportedly set to sign Adidas' biggest deal with a female athlete — and it could make her one of the highest-paid women in sports


  •      Naomi Osaka may be about to sign the biggest deal Adidas has agreed to with a female athlete.
  • A deal worth $US8.5 million annually could be announced Thursday, according to The Times.
  • The new agreement would come hot on the heels of Osaka’s straight-sets victory over Serena Williams, a match known for Williams’ sparring with a chair umpire.
  • Osaka is now seen as “a branding sensation,” as the New York Post put it.

Williams has a history of playing the sexist card so hard to take her seriously with this one. It was embarrassing behaviour really.

Nothing boring about it OneOne, it’s a great event. Although the 2 days I attended (day 1 & 2) were brutal with the heat. Hard to trade on Betfair sitting in the blazing sun on court 13.

Serena Williams Fined $US17,000 For Behaving Like An Australian

Serena Williams absorbed a $US17,000 fine for acting like an Australian man during her US Open final loss to Naomi Osaka on Sunday.

Debate raged over whether the code violations that sparked her blow-up, and the subsequent fine were sexist, after it became clear she really wasn’t behaving much worse than any half-decent Australian player would.

In 2016 at the French Open, Ramos called Nick Kyrgios for a code violation for yelling at a towel boy. Kyrgios accused Ramos of having a double standard and was described as “mystified” by the penalty and gave a bit of lip, but wasn’t fined because it’s better to just move past these things, unless you are dealing with an hysterical and intimidating female sports superstar from Compton.

However, Serena’s incident has sparked furious debate online from people who don’t really understand tennis but have very loud opinions that need to be heard.

People who inherently don’t like Serena Williams have blasted her for ‘ruining’ Naomi Osaka’s moment, Kanye-West-VMAs-style – while people who like Serena Williams have said she’s the victim of a witch hunt of racist and sexist oppressors that have prevented her from winning anything over the last two decades.

Margaret Court has given comment and said pretty much exactly what you’d expect her to say about the incident.

Many umpires/refs will allow a fair bit of "lip" but I have yet to see one tolerate being called a liar and a thief. I've never seen an athlete demand an apology either because no sane person would.
I am a person of high integrity. I pride myself on that.
