Cartoonist under fire over Serena

  • Artist Blasted for Racist Depiction of Serena Williams at U.S. Open

An Australian cartoonist faced withering criticism on Tuesday for portraying tennis superstar Serena Williams using - what Harry Potter author JK Rowling described as - "racist and sexist tropes".

Speaking on Wednesday, Osaka said she was unsure just why the crowd were booing at the time, but Williams had some kind words for the champion.

Mark Knight's cartoon, published Monday in the Melbourne-based Herald Sun, depicts Williams angrily stomping on her mangled racket, while the chair umpire in the background wearily asks her opponent "Can you just let her win?"

The 36-year-old had already had a point penalty for smashing her racquet and a code violation for coaching when she was penalised further for calling Ramos a "thief" and a "liar" in NY.

"But in her protests. she also got part of it wrong". Williams later smashed her racquet, resulting in a code violation and a point deduction, which she argued over with Ramos.

'I've seen a lot of people get called for coaching before, and you might have a grumble and stuff, but you get on with it'. "I have a daughter, and I stand for what's right for her", Williams shouted.

"I saw Federer twice and I feel like I nearly knocked him out because I was running in the hallway. He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief".

"You're stressing me out".

But her stop in Shanghai on Wednesday night (September 12) was marked by an incident directly affecting a group of her fans. She said she would return to China "when the time is right" and that she hoped to see "a room full of rainbows".

'Carlos Ramos is one of the most experienced and respected umpires in tennis, ' the statement read.

"I drew this cartoon Sunday night after seeing the U.S. Open final, and seeing the world's best tennis player have a tantrum and thought that was interesting", the cartoonist said.

In the eight categories - Racket abuse, Audible obscenity, unsportsmanlike conduct, coaching and coaches, ball abuse, verbal abuse, and visual obscenity - men were penalised more often in all but one.

Knight's cartoon in response to Williams on-court and off-court antics quickly came under fire from Chicago sports radio host Julie DiCaro.

Knight's Twitter account appears to no longer be active.

Others would question why Knight gave Osaka a blonde ponytail.

However, he would go on to recant his observation.
