    Correction: we never say that about Football and Basketball players. You know who we DO say it about? FREAKING TENNIS PLAYERS. It’s a different sport. You think people talking about her actions is about sex? Here’s an idea: go look up John McEnroe and how people talked about HIM. Spoiler alert: same fucking thing. Because what’s common in Basketball is almost unheard of in Tennis.

    But hey, it involved a woman; so lets just all scream sexism because Victim Culture.

    You never say a man athlete had a meltdown? When Cristiano Ronaldo started crying after being sent off by the ref in an unfair call guess what the press said? And what Serena did wasnt a simple argument, she lost her mind indeed. She not only started crying, insulting the ref, making psychological blackmail by mentioning her daughter but also bringing up the feminist card as a weapon. I am completely feminist but in this case she made a fuss and made her opponent (who was also a woman) who had a brilliant match look irrelevant

    Sloane Stephens came out on top in a match between the two most recent US Open champions. The 2017 champion beat Naomi Osaka 7-5, 4-6, 6-1 on Monday, 10/22/18 at the WTA Finals,,, the season-ending tournament for the top eight players in the world.
    Both players are making their debut appearances at the tournament, but Stephens was more composed while Osaka, who became the first Japanese player to win a grand slam title last month in New York, never seemed comfortable. You Win some , and you lose some, Just ask Serena.

    I think that Serena Williams called out the wrong ism’s. Serena Williams should have said it was RACISM. Not SEXISM. To me Serena was SERIOUSLY setup by HER coach & The POWERS at BE that controls The sport of Tennis. I mean THINK about it for a SERIOUS moment. Serena is trying to SETUP and make HISTORY. And all of a Sutton…….. The Empire calls a BULLSHIT penalty on Serena Williams for cheating. I’m like GET the HELL outta HERE.

    Serena was wrong, but it is a bit odd that the coach can’t coach his/her player during a match. That is odd to me. If anyone plays tennis or watches a lot of tennis please explain this

    mr trevor, if you knew a little more about sports, there have been worse meltdowns and ‘tempers flaring’ in the nba, mlb, epl…. and they have also been given fines, sanctions and bans…

    I disagree with Trevor. Ever since he took over TDS, it’s become a pro black show. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, but he’s not being fair in the news and facts.
    The umpire called it according to the rules. No one can deny that. The point of the discussion is what Serena said. I didn’t follow up on this, but I hope she got heavily fined or suspended. Passion for the game is 1 thing, bringing up feminist and racial shit is another thing. Never liked her in any way

    No offenses but analogy is wrong, what if LeBron punctures a ball or throw it outside the court? Every sports has its own different culture. So somethings accepted in one game might be absurd in other.

    I watch sports. I play sports. I know lots of people that play sports. But I would never throw a tantrum like that. And I have never seen anyone throw a tantrum like that over sports older than 8 years old. She straight ruined the US open, after she clearly violated the rules, and blamed it on sexism. This isn’t sexist, it’s just a violation of the rules, that was treated fairly. And by throwing this tantrum Serena ruined what should have been a great moment for Japanese tennis and Osaka’s career.

    I like Trevor noah, but i feel he isnt acurately exposing what went down, in order to fit his narrative. I dont understand the “men are passionate” and “serena had a meltdown” insinuation also. We have all seen Male players lose their temper; they yell they push they get pissed, and they move on. You dont see them keep harassing the referee over and over with “thief”, “you owe me an apology”, ” you will never be my referee again” , and even “I am a mother/father, i dont do that”, and this over the course of several minutes. This is far from your average sports argument, and i think meltdown is a completely fair statement for someone who was losing the final on her hometurf, and kept harassing the refereee after the several warnings.

    Again, i feel Trevor has barely watched the full event, and just saw the headlines.
    In future, will take his comments about events i dont know about with a grain of salt
