LeBron James weighs in on Serena Williams US Open final dispute

Lebron James has come out in support of Serena Williams after she made the headlines for her actions in the US Open final.

“What we all have to understand is what she is fighting for is bigger than just that match,” he told the Hollywood Reporter.

“She is fighting for equality – always having to win more, more, more, just to feel equal.

“Being an African-American woman playing in a predominantly white sport, she’s dealing with so much more.

“I have no idea what was going on in her head, but I feel that struggle.”
