Serena Williams: I was fined for taking the day off after the decree

American tennis player Serena Williams spoke about the disparity in a sport.

“When I returned to tennis from maternity leave, I was fined for taking the day off: my rating dropped from first place in the world to 453-g. I faced stiffer competition at the early stage of the French Open, and this led to trauma. I was always ready for a tough fight in tournaments, but I also always publicly fought against a biased rating system. We must stop punishing women when they return to their careers after giving birth. Women deserve the same respect and opportunities that our stake Legey-men “, – quotes¬† Serena¬†TMZ Sports.
