Sorry but here's the truth about tennis spat about Williams

SO SERENA Williams used a women's liberation tactic as a forehand attack of an umpire's decision.

The pro-Williams crowd went with it like sheep to a watering trough.

They booed the first-ever Japanese US Open winner Naomi Osaka, who had denied the 'great' Williams her 24th major title.

That's an amazing feat by Williams, no denying that.

She's a magnificent player and athlete.

But it's meant to be about Osaka.

It's meant to be about her clinical win against undeniably the greatest female player ever in Williams.

But no, it's more about how Williams lost.

How she spat it after umpire Carlos Ramos stripped her a game after she was 'coached' from her mentor Patrick Mouratoglou.

Women's rights?

Give me a break!

Williams perhaps typified what some women (and men) do when things don't go their way.

Sorry but it's the truth.

I'd challenge anyone to this argument.

And I speak from experience, having been on the receiving end.

The thousands of 'sheeple' in the crowd booed Osaka, buoyed by Williams's baby-girl tactics.

And lastly, kudos to cartoonist Mark Knight who was spot on about a great player who has tarnished the tone of women's tennis.
