Isn’t that the point though - in the men’s game there are people who are just as big “assholes” as you put it but they get away with similar things to what occurred in this match. No one is saying Serena behaved well - she didn’t. But there is a level of subjectivity in the way the rules are applied which we have seen in this tournament. I’ve not seen anyone say anything positive about Serena’s behaviour in this thread and the Tweets don’t condone her behaviour either, they just build on the argument that there are sometimes double standards at play in the tennis world. And I’m not American.
