Tennis Umpires reportedly considering Boycott of Serena Williams Matches

Knight's cartoon was in response to Serena Williams' meltdown at the U.S. Open both during and after her defeat to 20-year-old Naomi Osaka at the U.S. Open.

Williams, who was vying to equal Australian player Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slam singles titles, lost in straight sets after a heated clash with chair umpire Carlos Ramos over code violations that resulted in her being penalised a game.

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".

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

The 2018 National Basketball Association rookie of the year tweeted: "To disrespect Serena Williams, a 23 time Grand Slam Champion, in this light is truly disappointing".

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

The CEO of USTA, the governing body of tennis in the USA, was asked if she believes female players are held to different standards than men.

Knight's twitter account has subsequently been deleted or at the very least deactivated. "I think a lot of it maybe got over-amplified because it was the finals of the US Open".

"So, this whole business that I'm some sort of racist, calling on racial cartoons from the past, it's just made up".

"In my head, sometimes I could become insane and the team couldn't be confident to call me into the team", Paire had said before his match.

She was she given three code violations by Carlos Ramos, which cost her a point penalty and then a game penalty.

"It takes me right back to what I had to deal with when I was chasing Babe Ruth's home run record, because I think the whole thing with Serena is so rude and so cruel", he told Terence Moore. "I find it really, a little offensive", added fellow Melbourne resident Nowal Kahsai.

"You are a liar", Williams said, while pointing her finger.

Adams also clarified her comments during the trophy ceremony in which she appeared to imply Williams' loss wasn't the outcome they wanted. "I have since texted her coach to make sure she understands that she is celebrated and how proud I am of her".
