Her total earnings from the controversial match amounted to $3.8 million. The warning incensed Williams, not only because coaching hand gestures have become so common in the modern era of tennis and nearly always go unpunished, but especially because it called her character into question.

That, of course, was the catalyst for the Williams controversy as she was losing to Naomi Osaka in the US Open final.

Clay Travis heavily refutes Serena's claims and called out the media for openly accepting and promoting extremely delicate and inflammable accusations that immorally stir up the worst parts of our society, especially when baseless in nature. During the ESPN broadcast of the trophy ceremony, Williams tried to quiet the racuous, booing crowd of 20,000-plus and put her arm around Osaka. She then picked up a penalty for smashing her racket, and then a third after calling the official a thief after she believed she was unfairly penalized.

"I have been asked about women's equality and I would find it hard to look any of the top female tennis players in the eye if I did not speak my mind", he wrote.

Williams called chair umpire Carlos Ramos a "thief' and a "liar" for charging her with a point penalty, before ultimately enforcing a game penalty against the American". Williams claimed Ramos' actions in NY were "sexist" but speaking to BBC Sport yesterday, US Open mixed-doubles champion Murray said: "I think that's a bit far-fetched".

Williams was fined $17,000 for the blowup. Most of those criticisms - largely made by men - were valid, but they chose to ignore Williams' experience as a black woman.

She is also set to ink a $10 million deal with Adidas to go with the almost $4 million she took home for her U.S. Open win.

It is true that Serena's coach was trying to signal her but Serena was in fact looking at the other side of the court and did not notice.

These standards are not applied to the young men my age who instead of being emotional, they are branded "passionate", instead of ranting are "speaking their minds" and if he speaks arrogantly speaks of his achievements he is said to be "confident" and an "ambitious" is not used as a complement.

In believing that her greater cause has merit, she seems to be conveniently overlooking her actions in the moment.

"I encourage women to take stances as they see fit and we need to understand what that means".
