Billie Jean King, the tennis legend that won 12 Grand Slam singles titles, backed Williams with a tweet that sums up what happened at the match. She wrote:

“When a woman is emotional, she's "hysterical," and she's penalized for it. When a man does the same, he's 'outspoken,' and there are no repercussions.”
