Former tennis star Martina Navratilova says Serena Williams should have been thinking about the example she was setting, following her US Open final fiasco.

The baseball Hall of Famer confronted plenty of ugliness as he was pursuing Major League Baseball's home run record in the 1970s, and in an interview with Forbes, he said the criticism Williams has faced - including an Australian newspaper cartoon decried as racist - bears echoes of his own past. "In comparison, I never saw [Rafael] Nadal shouting like that with an umpire". "I spent 23 years in baseball".

"I know the way that I was brought up, people tell me I act kind of Japanese so I guess there is that".

The Portuguese umpire penalised Serena Williams three times during her loss to Naomi Osaka, ultimately awarding the Japanese player a game after Williams called Ramos a "thief".

Maryland Task Force One heads south to help prepare for Hurricane Florence
As of Saturday , about 676,000 homes and businesses were without power in North Carolina, along with 119,000 in SC . There is now a hurricane warning in effect from the Santee River in SC to the Outer Banks in North Carolina.

The 23-time Grand Slam victor reacted angrily, insisting she hadn't seen Mourtagolou give advice, to which he later admitted. To get called in a Grand Slam final was perhaps a bit tight, but I think the reaction was pretty overboard.

Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka has been announced as the brand ambassador for Nissan, the vehicle maunufacturer announced on Thursday. "I thought I didn't harm the grass". "I'm 36 years old", she said. They're sitting up there in the stands saying, 'Go this way.

"This is bulls-t, for umpires, being women or men doesn't matter", Strycova told Czech website Sport.CZ.

The third and final violation came when Williams called Ramos a "liar" and "thief" - a verbal abuse violation, which cost her a game penalty in the second set of the match. "Overall I felt really happy and know I accomplished a lot". If that's the case then Carlos Ramos's performance during Saturday's controversial US Open final was a failure.

Mariachi wearing gunman kill 5, wound 8 in Mexico City
Mexico City has experienced less of the drug violence that plagues cartel strongholds in other regions of the country. At least five people have been killed after gunmen dressed as a mariachi band opened fire in a Mexico City plaza.

Much of the criticism of Williams has centred on how her actions had spoiled a precious moment for Osaka, who was even moved to apologise for beating the home favourite to a NY crowd angrily booing Ramos.

Due to her stellar rise in popularity, the young athlete is also expected to land more endorsement deals in addition to her current sponsors which include Yonex, Citizen and Nissin Foods.

Osaka also admitted that she had no idea what was truly happening between Serena and the umpire, because she was taught to turn her back and stay focused when competitors confront the officials.
