Japan’s Osaka has ‘no regrets’ over chaotic US Open final

15 September 2018

An Australian newspaper defied worldwide criticism and allegations of racism on Wednesday when it reprinted a controversial cartoon on its front page depicting U.S. tennis star Serena Williams having a temper tantrum at the U.S. Open. Williams received warnings for receiving coaching and breaking a racket, before she was docked a game for calling Ramos a "thief".

An Australian cartoonist faced criticism yesterday for portraying tennis superstar Serena Williams using what Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling described as "racist and sexist tropes".

The last certainly has not been heard over US Open ladies final outburst as Umpires are considering boycotting Serena Williams' future games.

Martina Navratilova, an 18-time Grand Slam singles champion, also took a swipe at Williams' behaviour, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

More than 750000 copies of Woodward's book on Pres. Trump sold
Kelly is quoted calling Trump "an idiot" while Mattis is quoted saying Trump has the understanding of "a fifth- or sixth-grader". But neither Cohn nor Porter said specifically what was inaccurate, and neither denied speaking to Woodward.

"I saw how Serena was being treated, and then I thought about coming back to my locker one day as a player, and there was [a reporter] in my chair", said Aaron, who endured racist taunts and death threats as he marched toward Babe Ruth's record.

"I understand Mark Knight is Australian, consequently his understanding of racial depictions might not be the same as they are in the United States, but I also think as a cartoonist who is writing about an global incident and worldwide figure, I don't buy that he was completely oblivious to how his work would be perceived either".

She said: "I think for this year my immediate goal would be to get to Singapore".

The Herald Sun republished the cartoon, along with caricatures of other famous people, on the front page of its Wednesday edition, under the headline "Welcome to the PC World". "At the time, I did think that they were booing me".

Nintendo Switch Online finally has a concrete launch date

"You are a liar", Williams said, while pointing her finger.

During and after the match, Williams pointed to sexism as part of the reason why she was given the three code violations that led to the significant penalties.

Williams, who was thwarted in her bid for a record-tying 24th Slam singles crown in losing to Japan's Osaka, said she was punished for saying something where men have said far worse without incurring such a penalty. "If it's like this, let me know", Strycova said. "I have since texted her coach to make sure she understands that she is celebrated and how proud I am of her". She was drawn as a white woman with blonde hair.
