Williams comes out swinging
SERENA Williams has maintained her stance that female players should be held on a level playing field to their male counterparts and that she did not receive coaching in her controversial US Open defeat.
Speaking for the first time since her explosive US Open final loss to Naomi Osaka, she maintained that she and coach Patrick Mouratoglou do not share a secret communication method when she is on court.
Williams, 36, (pictured) split opinion following her on-court heated dispute with chair umpire Carlos Ramos.
She later claimed it was a gender issue and that she is “fighting for women’s rights and women’s equality”.
“If you’re a female you should be able to do even half of what a guy can do,” she told The Project.
The full interview will be shown on Sunday night.
