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.”
