'Why do I have to face a different standard than men?' Serena Williams defends THAT controversial reaction to US Open umpire - but admits she wishes she had handled it differently

Daily Mail - 04-24


Serena Williams made headlines last year after she lost her temper during the US Open finals and smashed her racket, only for opponent Naomi Osaka to end up winning the match. Her smashed racket was in response to an argument Serena had with the chair umpire of the match who believed her coach, Patrick Mouratogloum, was coaching her from the sidelines. Serena denied the accusation but still was penalized.
