    Dude you realize Serena Williams was DEAD WRONG there right? I saw your previous video where you actually question the arguable but definitely well established etiquette of Tennis because "in other sports it's ok" instead of just admitting she misbehaved. Being black doesn't mean you're automatically right either.

    Why am i not surprised that Trevor defended Serena and went on to rip on the umpire who was just doing his job.

    I really wish people would look at the facts before seeing the surface and reacting emotionally. Serena was targeted? The same umpire made the same calls for the same code violations to Djokovic and Nadal, two world class white male players for coaching (even though every coach does it), for breaking a racket and for verbal abuse (which Serena was far worse). She was losing and was going to lose. She's been playing long enough to know that after a warning your going to lose a point, and then another point. Serena got robbed because the umpire turned a 4-2 loss to a 6-2 loss? Really?? Racist and sexist when it happened to two white men last year? It's not even only her. The umpire gave her sister problems too. Serena was just being a sore loser, and she knew she fucked up when she saw Osaka crying at the podium.. but it was too late

    That's the most disgusting racial commentary I have heard in years. With all due respect she was losing the game and that made her lose her mind. Beside she isn't "the tennis" she is just another player who has lot of trophies.
    Please stop with this hypocrisy

    He is so biased. It's starting to sound like fox news. What serena did was not okay. I think if serena was on the other sode of the court, the segment would have been totally different.

    The rules explicitly state that accusing a judge of dishonesty is a violation. I'm pretty sure calling him a thief falls into that category. If she hadn't already had 2 violations it would've just been a warning and everyone would had been fine with it. But because Serena put herself in that situation (or her coach, whatever you want to believe) it had to be a game. Osaka is a champion, and it's pathetic that Serena made it all about herself both during and after the match. And even more pathetic that she gets praised for it.

    Love Serena Williams she is a total badass but she clearly wasn't in the right and it's disrespectful to the other players to say she's the only one that matters. Stop calling everything sexist/racist.

    I'M pretty sure that Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic are bigger in the tennis world than she is, Trevor. The umpires are fighting someone who does feel that she is bigger than the sport & all the negative consequences that come with that and fools like you are trying to back the entitled prima donna over labor. Isn't that contrary to your "progressive" values? Congratulations, in 30 seconds you higjlighted your hypocrisy & ignorance

    Oh please, Trevor Noah, Serena isn't tennis. There are hundreds of thousands if not millions of people who have played, currently play, or will play tennis. The sport won't die if Serena Williams doesn't/can't play professionally. The same can't be said of the umpires, who are essential in keeping the higher levels of tennis competitions regulated and fair.

    When Serena made fun of Amélie Mauresmo, she was clearly fighting for women's cause, lol. She isn't the face of tennis, she's a trophies winner, not a champion.
