  • Image Artist Blasted for Racist Depiction of Serena Williams at U.S. Open Image #2

Tennis umpires are reportedly threatening to boycott Serena Williams' matches over the fallout from her US Open finals altercation with Carlos Ramos. She was then docked a point for a second violation after smashing her racket, followed by a penalty in which she lost a game because of "verbal abuse" of the chair umpire.

Mark Knight, the artist whose cartoon depiction of star tennis player Serena Williams got the internet buzzing has said that the cartoon isn't racist.

Six-time US Open victor Williams, was initially disgusted after receiving a coaching violation from the umpire during the first set.

"She said was proud of me and to know the crowd weren't booing at me".

Alexis Ohanian Sr, 35, claimed the cartoon, drawn by Herald Sun cartoonist Mark Knight, was both "racist" and "misogynistic" in a Twitter post on Thursday.

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. After the tournament was over, the six-time US Open champion was fined $17,000 for her actions during the match. 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.

You know how many fucking rappers are better than you? "But I also get to say whatever the fuck I want about you now". I don't give a f- about your career. "The fact of like, every time I saw this kid - always so cool to you".

On the other side of the net, though, the 20-year-old Osaka kept her cool in her first Grand Slam final to win 6-2 6-4.

He said the reaction showed the world "has just gone crazy" and insisted he was simply illustrating her behaviour on the day.

The controversial Serena Williams "angry baby" cartoon has been republished by The Herald Sun.

According to reports, she's agreed to an endorsement deal with Adidas that will pay her $8.5 million per year, which would be the richest deal in women's tennis. "I'm not going to really think too far ahead", Osaka said.

She said Williams" outburst "poisoned the atmosphere' for her opponent Naomi Osaka. "I have a daughter, and I stand for what's right for her", Williams shouted.

"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. "Professional tennis players, sometimes, I think we lose sight of that".
