Serena angered by 'sexist' slur

World number one Serena Williams has criticised Russian Tennis Federation president Shamil Tarpischev for making "sexist, racist and bullying" comments about her and sister Venus.
Tarpischev referred to the Americans as "the Williams brothers" on a chat show.
He was fined £15,500 and given a one-year ban from the women's tour for comments he described as a "joke".
"I thought they were very insensitive and extremely sexist as well as racist at the same time," said Williams.
"I thought they were, in a way, bullying. I just wasn't very happy with his comments. I think a lot of people weren't happy as well."
