The Serena Williams foot fault outrage is all over the news today, and it’s set to undergo an in-depth investigation. What happened? Well, Williams launched into a profane outburst at the U.S. Open last night. See a closeup version of the Serena Williams foot fault outburst right here.
Williams lost her cool after being called for a foot fault on a second serve while trailing 15-30 and 5-6 in the second set of last night’s match. Kim Clijsters won the first set 6-4.
According to Yahoo! Sports, Williams will be asked to explain her actions and comments toward the female line judge. She’ll likely have to pay a heavy fine for her actions. According to the Associated Press, Williams screamed at the official, â€œIf I could, I would take this [bleep] ball and shove it down your [bleep] throat.â€
Do you think Williams should be fined? Hasn’t John McEnroe, for one, done 10x worse in his day, yelling obscenities at linespeople?
