Serena Williams Makes a Racket at U.S. Open
Tennis player Serena Williams talks to the media on Monday (September 14th) about her temper tantrum over the weekend at the U.S. Open in New York City.
The 27-year-old number 2 ranked player in the world captured the women’s doubles title along with her sister, Venus Williams, on Monday (September 14th.) The powerful sister duo defeated the number 1 ranked team, Cara Black and Liezel Huber.
The talk of the Open, however, was Serena Williams exploding at the line judge for a foot fault penalty. Due to her outburst, she was assessed a point penalty, giving the semi-final match to Kim Clijsters (who went on to win the title).
Her outburst included, “If I could, I would take this (expletive) ball and show it down your (expletive) throat.”
Serena issued a statement on Monday, saying, “I want to amend my press statement of yesterday and want to make it clear as possible — I want to sincerely apologize first to the lineswoman, Kim Clijsters, the USTA and mostly tennis fans everywhere for my inappropriate outburst. I’m a woman of great pride, faith and integrity and I admit when I’m wrong.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Serena’s apology – REALLY SINCERE OR REALLY BOGUS?
