Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade mocked tennis star Serena Williams for alleging that an umpire made a sexist call against her during Saturday's U.S. Open finales. "And I think for Ramos, he was a little defensive at that point, and was fed up as opposed to saying, 'OK, let's get back to business'".

And on the future of the sport, King said she's looking forward to seeing more of Osaka. "He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief, '" said Williams.

She added: "There's no equality when it comes to what the men are doing to the chair umpires and what the women are doing, and I think there has to be some consistency across the board".

Female tennis players have also been voicing their support for Williams, including Victoria Azarenka. I said, "They're impossible. You even turned Osaka into a white blonde woman to push your "angry black woman agenda". She did not stomp on her racket during the match as the cartoon portrayed.

Williams lost the 2018 US Open women's final on Saturday after getting slapped with three code violations on court.

Mark Knight published a cartoon in Australian newspaper The Herald Sun on Monday that showed Williams with caricaturized features like oversized lips, a big nose, and wiry hair. "Using those classic sambo tropes- enlarged lips, overexaggerated body parts to depict Serena as hyper masculine- next time just use an old ad from the 1800s- no one would notice the difference in your racism".
