"The cartoon about Serena is about her poor behavior on the day, not about race".

Williams' heated exchanges with an umpire at the tournament final this week have stirred the tennis world.

The chief executive of the Women's Tennis Association, Steve Simon, said he did not feel Ramos was as tolerant to Williams as he would have been to a man, but the Grand Slam record-holder was fined $17,000 (£13,100) for the three code violations.

But he denies this in the video above.

PARIS, FRANCE - MAY 30: Naomi Osaka of Japan celebrates during her ladies singles second round match against Zarina Diyas of Kazhakstan during day four of the 2018 French Open at Roland Garros on May 30, 2018 in Paris, France. It also showed her opponent Naomi Osaka, of Japanese and Haitian heritage, as a petite pale woman speaking to the umpire as he asks her to "Let [Serena] win".

Knight, who has a reputation for controversial cartoons, was pilloried from far and wide, including by a member of the US Congress and a large portion of the 22 000 people who commented on his Twitter post showing the drawing.

Stefanovic added he "hoped that she's okay with it" and that Williams would travel to Melbourne for the Australian Open in early 2019.

Williams was then given another violation for smashing her racket, costing her a point.

"W$3 e can not measure ourselves by what we think we should also be able to get away with", she wrote for the New York Times this week.

"Honestly, my mouth dropped open, because I do cover a lot of black news and a lot of it is hard to take, but when I saw this - a blatant caricature of one of the most celebrated athletes in the world - it was offensive, shocking and completely uncalled for", she said. It's about bad behaviour, certainly not race.

Journalist Winnie Ngozi Okocha said: "I don't want to flatten every black woman's experience to make out that we have one identical story".

"Serena Williams has part of it right". She is sort of in the picture, but also absent.

Williams is seen with exaggerated lips while she is stomping on a tennis racket.

Six-time US Open victor Williams, was initially disgusted after receiving a coaching violation from the umpire during the first set.

Osaka was portrayed as petite and feminine with jet blonde straight hair-in real life she has dark curly hair with blonde streaks and is taller than Williams. It is therefore only logically that she be treated in a hostile manner by the forces for whom the image of black female excellence, success, autonomy, self-confidence and wealth is a threat.

Williams said that male players were held to a lower standard for court conduct.
