“I have said it once and I’ll say it again, this world has come so far but yet we have so much further to go.

“Yes, we have broken down so many barriers – however there are a plethora more to go. This or anything else will not stop me from pouring love, light and positivity into everything that I do. I will continue to take a lead and stand up for what’s right.”

Williams added that she was not intimidated by Nastase who also verbally abused Johanna Konta and Anne Keothavong during Saturday’s FedCup singles, calling the pair “f****** bitches”.

The coach was subsequently ejected from court and is currently being investigated by the International Tennis Federation (ITF).

According to Independent Website, The coach was unhappy after his comments were reported about Williams’ baby, which is due in the autumn, and Nastase stormed into the press centre at the Tenis Club IDU in Constana to seek out the British media.

He said to the Press Association’s Eleanor Crooks: “Why did you write that? You’re stupid, you’re stupid.”

The tirade took place in front of a number of members from the Romanian media and, according to Crooks, lasted between two and three minutes.
