Serena Williams Out At The U.S. Open After Allegedly Threatening Line Judge?
Now, I don’t really watch tennis, though I did go to the U.S. Open once and it was funzies. But tonight I’m at home because it’s nasty outside and that’s how cool I am, so I’m watching a little bit because I think Serena Williams is rad. So all of the sudden, like, something happens and the referee on the side — a line judge I have read — makes a call saying Serena did something bad. In technical sports terms, the Los Angeles Times says Serena was called for a foot fault, whatever that means. But then the sports announcers were like, “Nuh uh, she didn’t do that.” Serena didn’t seem to believe it either because she started yelling at the line judge. Then the line judge was like, “Bitch, no you didn’t” and went to the main judge sitting in the big tall chair, and she told him what was going on and then Serena was like, “What? I didn’t say I would kill you!” Then the big judge docked Serena some more points and, lo and behold, Williams lost then and there to her opponent, Kim Clijsters. You can watch the whole thing above. I promise to put up a better quality video as soon as possible. Drama on the courts! [LA Times]
