  • Serena fined $17000 after US Open final outburst

"They've been called a lot more", she said.

Well Julie here's a cartoon I drew a few days before when Australian male tennis player Kyrgios at the US Open was behaving badly.

Kelly Rowland is making a racket in defense of pal Serena Williams after the tennis great was hit with a five-digit fine following her US Open defeat on Saturday to 20-year-old underdog Naomi Osaka.

He said: "I love lean; it's great". "It's just a part of something that's going to continue to help make me who I am". Miller was set to embark on a cross-country tour in support of Swimming in late October.

CNN's Poppy Harlow on Monday ran a lengthy 10-minute segment with guest Christine Brennan of USA Today on the outburst and penalizing of tennis star Serena Williams, during which no blame or even criticism was offered regarding the player's outburst, and the shabby treatment of fellow female tennis star, and victor, Naomi Osaka was glossed over.

During a break, Williams was still waiting for Ramos to acknowledge that she had not cheated: "You're attacking my character".

U.S. great Billie Jean King was among those coming down hard on Serena's side in her claim that chair umpire Carlos Ramos penalized her for comments that a male player could have gotten away with. At the trophy ceremony later that evening, the audience booed loudly; both Osaka and Williams cried, before embracing each other, as Williams came to her competitor's side. Williams was fined $17,000 for the violations by the United States Tennis Association, in addition to having points deducted during the match by Ramos.

They claimed: "Senior officials will privately admit their daily disbelief at the commander in chief's commands and actions". Trump also said The New York Times , news channel CNN and "all of these phony media outlets" will be out of business soon.

"He's never taken a game from a man because they said "thief". And for me to say "thief" and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark.

"I've seen him giving time violations to Rafael Nadal out there on the court many, many times, but he's someone who just plays it by the rule book". "He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief, '" said Williams. Mouratoglou later admitted that he had been gesturing to Williams and was mystified that a common practice among coaches at tennis tournaments was suddenly being punished. "Maybe they'll do us right in Australia since the U.S. couldn't do me right". Retired tennis player James Blake said that Williams should have at least been given a warning by Ramos. These men all berated chair umpires, famously so. First of all, she's amusing. "I think that was poor form", said Vandeweghe. She was already losing and even her most ardent defenders admit she would have lost anyway.

"I'm all about gender equality and I think when you look at that situation these are conversations that will be imposed in the next weeks".

Plane quarantined as passengers fall sick
Flight 203 was on an Airbus double-decker aircraft, a super jumbo jet, and was carrying 521 passengers, according to the CDC. Nine others refused medical attention, according to Eric Phillips , the press secretary for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio .

Writer JK Rowling quickly called out a racist cartoon about Saturday's final match that appeared in Australia's The Herald Sun on Sunday.
