It all started when Serena Williams’ coach was caught using hand signals in an attempt to coach her, which is a violation of the rules in tennis. He later admitted he was guilty of signalling her. She was penalized for the infraction. She later smashed her racquet to the court, which was another infraction of the rules, for which she was given a second penalty which caused her to fly into a tantrum and accused the umpire of being a “thief”, at which point the umpire gave her a third penalty, which gave the game in progress to her opponent. Serena went on to lose the match, and began virtue signalling in the press that she was standing up for women’s rights.
