It's more a case of #MeMeMe than #MeToo and her argument just doesn't stand up to scrutiny..look at the figures male tennis players are penalised nearly 3 times more than women.Her first violation was for coaching, in which she said it was false, but her coach did admit he was coaching after the match. Coaching is not allowed during a tennis match, but it has happened before in the past.
Her second was for smashing her racket on court.
And her third was for arguing and abusing the Umpire.
Now there has been a lot of controversy surrounding what happened. Some believe it was a sexism issue, because men, according to Serena, have done a lot worse on court and were left unpunished. But does this really excuse this kind of behaviour on officials? The rules are the rules after all and her opponent, Naomi Osaka, played an absolute blinder to win the game.
