She spoke out for herself at her game over the weekend and lost her game because of it. She has also received a $17,000 fine because of it. Check out this Instagram post. I completely agree. According to dailymail.com,
"US Open champion Naomi Osaka, who is half-Haitian and half-Japanese, charmed Japan with her success and graciousness after she apologized for her emotional victory over Williams.
US Open champ Osaka revealed Monday that she was emotional about her win and felt compelled to apologize for it after Williams' fight with their umpire overshadowed her victory.
Appearing on the Today show, Osaka, 20, spoke in a soft voice as she said that she 'knew' the court was rooting for her opponent and not her to win."

“When a woman is emotional, she’s ‘hysterical’ and she’s penalized for it. When a man does the same he’s ‘outspoken’ and there are no repercussions. Thank you @serenawilliams, for calling out this double standard. More voices are needed to do the same.” - Via Twitter from tennis legend @billiejeanking this morning - - Did you watch it?

Serena was outraged and emotional and so are many of her fans like me.
And then the day after a newspaper posted this unfortunate picture. When will it stop? So sad.
