You're a thief too - Serena Williams Serena Jameka Williams is an American professional tennis player. The Women's Tennis Association ranked her world No. 1 in singles on eight separate occasions between 2002 and 2017. She reached the No. 1 ranking for the first time on July 8, 2002.

She said this to the umpire at US Open 2018 Finals:-
Serena was first flagged for cheating which her coach later admitted. Showing her disapproval, she destroyed her racket which is against the rules. She got penalized again.

The umpire who was fed up hearing this penalized her again for verbal abuse which ultimately led her to lose the match.
At the post-match press conference, she went onto accuse the umpire of sexism.
