  • Serena Williams is being attacked by an Australian newspaper.
  • The American tennis player received three code violations during her loss to Naomi Osaka in last weekend’s US Open women’s final.
  • These violations were criticized, perhaps fairly, by the Herald Sun newspaper.
  • But the paper has continued a mean-spirited crusade against Williams. It lampooned her in a vulgar cartoon, and a headline in a conservative columnist’s article claimed she “is no feminist hero.”
  • Here’s why they’re dead wrong.
