In an interview with Australian publisher, Herald Sun, who are solidly behind the cartoonist, Knight said that the cartoon was about her reactions which earned her penalties on Sunday night's US Open finals.
"A champion tennis player had a mega tantrum on the world stage, and Mark's cartoon depicted that", the editor said.
Knight, who has a reputation for controversial cartoons, was pilloried from far and wide for his portrayal - including by a member of the US Congress and a large portion of the 22,000 people who commented on his Twitter post showing the drawing.
The Herald Sun reported on Tuesday that Knight had been mentioned on Twitter almost 74,000 times following the cartoon's publication.
The Herald Sun newspaper printed an edited portion of the cartoon - featuring 23-time Grand Slam victor Williams jumping on a broken racket during her dispute with a chair umpire in the U.S. Open final - among caricatures of other famous people today under the headline "Welcome to the PC World".
Her opponent, who is Japanese with Haitian heritage, is pictured as white, blonde, and tiny in comparison to Williams.

After the match, Williams would declare, "I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff".
"I saw Knight's cartoon and was not offended or angered".
"World's gone mad when cartoonist is targeted for saying tennis player spat the dummy-so sick of PC BS as too many confect an issue to be outraged about-that's what this is about". She's interesting to draw.
Whether it is was intended or not, Knight's cartoon has been widely condemned overseas with many arguing it reinforces a growing worldwide perception that Australia is a country of racists, with one notable exception.
The National Association of Black Journalists said the cartoon was "repugnant on many levels". As an African-American woman, so this whole business that I am some sort of racist, calling on racial cartoons from the past, it's just made up.
