Trevor Noah weighs in on Serena Williams outburst at US Open

Talk show host, Trevor Noah has contributed to the ongoing talks about Serena Williams’ showdown with the umpire at her US Open final match against Naomi Osaka.

According to him, he was at the game and saw everything unfold.

While pointing out that Naomi played a great game, he also expressed his support for Serena. Trevor said Serena had every right to be angry because she was being punished for what her coach did. According to him, her coach was indeed coaching her but it had no effect as she could not see him. So, when she was punished for it, she naturally got upset. According to him, it all boiled down to sexism.

Trevor said:

“Most tennis players came out and said, ‘hey look. What she did, all the guys do; not just being coached, but also talking trash to the ref, erm to the umpire’. They were like, ‘yeah, we all do that. Only difference is we don’t get penalized the same way’.

And that’s the conversation that’s come out now. It’s like, even in tennis, even at that level of a sports, you still see a discrepancy with how a man and a woman are treated in the same environment, in the same work environment.”

He continued:

“But you see constantly that we don’t live in a world where everyone is treated the same. And now, I’m not saying that Serena shouldn’t be punished, I’m saying that the other way round, I’m saying like, now the focus is on the guys. It’s like why aren’t they being punished… Why aren’t they being called out on these things? Because it’s gotta be equal one way or the other. Either everyone fights or everyone gets punished.”
