The cartoon created a stir on social media many users have demanded Amul to take it down because they were disappointed that Serena Williams altercation with the on-court umpire has gained more limelight, than Naomi Osaka's win.
USTA president Katrina Adams celebrated Williams' class in the post-match presentation, and the WTA seemingly backed her claim that the penalties were sexist in a statement.
Osaka became the first-ever Japanese-born Grand Slam champion on Sunday after her stunning defeat over the former World No.1.
"Rather, I think the question we have to ask ourselves is this: What is the right way to behave to honour our sport and to respect our opponents?"
King said she hoped the incident would bring about needed changes to the sport, including allowing for direct communication between the umpire and the fans over a loudspeaker and ending the ban on coaching during Grand Slam matches.
Williams gave chair umpire, Carlos Ramos, a verbal lashing over the accusation that she received coaching while on the court.
Williams said she was punished for saying something where men have said far worse without incurring such a penalty.
"The umpiring fraternity is thoroughly disturbed at being abandoned by the WTA", retired Gold Badge umpire Richard Ings said, according to ESPN's Peter Bodo. "Mr. Ramos' decisions were in accordance with the relevant rules...."
Since then, many have come to the defense of Williams and accused Ramos of holding the tennis star to a different standard because she's a woman.
The coaching violation began the whole drama, as Williams insisted that she hadn't even seen her coach Patrick Mouratoglou's hand gestures in the stands.
The umpires are now allegedly putting forth a united front to stick it to a woman who is already being hammered online by white news outlets, including one that portrayed Williams' as a tantrum-throwing Sambo looking baby with oversized lips and grotesque facial features. "Don't you worry about me", the 47-year-old is quoted as saying in the newspaper.
Williams struggled against her young counterpart, but was repeatedly penalized during the match, causing the tennis icon to lose her cool multiple times.
The first two numbers are correct, although they measure completely different things, and in different ways. Hassett said he suspected someone "added a 0" to the fact as it was "conveyed" to the president.
