The figures further revealed that male players have received 649 fines for breaking racquets as compared to 99 for women, while the former was fined 344 times for "audible obscenity" as compared to 140 for females.

Men were fined 344 times compared to 140 for "audible obscenity" and 287 to 67 for unsportsmanlike conduct.

But after returning to Japan on Thursday, Osaka insisted there were no hard feelings towards Williams, who branded umpire Carlos Ramos a "thief" in an astonishing tantrum triggered by a code violation for coaching that culminated in a docked game. "For me, it's just who I am", she said, per Reuters. "That is not right".

This is said to be because the CEO of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), Steve Simon, and the U.S. Tennis Association President Katrina Adams, had released statements in support of Serena.

"I have seen other men call other umpires several things". There have been excellent articles, testimonials and books written on this subject, but I doubt many of them have been read by Australian cartoonists, tennis umpires or anyone else whose comfortable existence depends on seeing only what they want to see. The first variable is how often men and women actually commit these violations, rather than how often they get called on them.

"But in my mind, I really wanted to know what was going on".

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. She said on Tuesday both sides shared the blame for the incident. You are the liar.

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

Little time at the news conference was devoted to replaying the wrenching Open final. In 2009, Williams refused to apologize after threatening to shove a ball down a lineswoman's throat in an expletive-laden outburst.

"This was what I was thinking when Serena Williams was playing".

"She makes some good points and they're points that need to be taken seriously by the tennis establishment", Ellis said.

"She is doing a awful disservice to women's rights, to the #metoo movement, to gender equality", Caroline Wilson of the Australian Broadcasting Corp. said. For her to say she wouldn't have been penalised if she were a man misses the point.
