Fan reaction to Serena Williams’ US Open reference

It all started with a tweet that pointed out how the singer used the US Open incident to portray the injustice women face. The Man from Swift’s seventh album has taken pains to point out how men enjoy different privileges. Therefore, an author from London joins the points wrote, “Serena was criticized for her reaction at the US Open final, although men who have reacted worse in the past were only described as ‘passionate’.”

“Taylor put this into the video for The Man while literally singing, ‘If I was a man, then I’d be the man, phew.'” He added. What was answered “Who would have thought that doing simple research would be so difficult? The way that first baseless paragraph has been regurgitated by casual and non-tennis fans alike is infuriating. It is irresponsible for a great musician to jump on the bandwagon and introduce it to an audience of millions.”

While the other support mentioned some of the previous cases that were treated the same as the 23-time Grand Slam champion.Tbf McEnroe was seen as a sucker for having a meltdown at Wimbledon. Nick Kyrgios is widely hated. Serena’s outburst was unreasonable because her coach admitted to coaching her mid-game?? This isn’t the first time she’s done this as well (USO vs Clijsters ).”

Williams got into an argument with the chair umpire when he was accused of coaching. She refused to take instructions from coach Patrick Mouratoglou during the final against Naomi osaka. She also made allegations of sexism against the referee for handing out a sentence against her.

Although Mouratoglou later admitted to training Williams from the box, he explained that Williams didn’t seem to notice his gestures. He also pointed out that the Osaka coach had similar activities.

The other side of the debate

There were also those who found the tweet factual. Speaking of which, even 12-time Grand Slam winner Billie Jean King supported Williams‘ claims and thanked her for pointing out the sexist behavior.

This is how the other half reacted. Indicating sexism via MV The Man. Wow. Dam.”

“Queens support queens. That’s it period.”

“She has to keep a diary of all these things. I would never have put that together.”

“I mean, not really a Swiftie or anything, but RESPECT!!!”

“That damn scene.”

“I can’t even begin to describe how MUCH GENIUS TAYLOR ALISON SWIFT IS.”

“Wow I’ve been thinking about the same thing like my life would be a lot better if I was a guy who does whatever he wants whenever he wants and no one can ever criticize him dude it’s sad.”

“I have no choice but to stand.”
