During the U.S Open Finals yesterday evening, Serena lashed out at the Umpire which may have ultimately caused her to lose the game to Australian tennis pro Samantha Stosur. In the middle of the game, Serena was penalized for celebrating with one of her famous grunts/yells before the point was official, which is a “No No” and considered a violation in tennis. As a result, the chair umpire awarded the point to her opponent and that’s when Serena lost her cool. After the umpire attempted to calmly explain to Serena that when she yelled, it may have distracted her opponent, Serena responded: Check Serena’s response and check the video of the rant after the jump
Are you the one that screwed me over last time here? Yeah, you are. That’s totally not cool, I truly despise you.
Later, during a changeover, Serena really let the umpire have it:
If you ever see me walking down the hall, look the other way, because you’re out of control! You’re totally out of control, you’re a hater, and you’re unattractive inside. Who would do such a thing? And I never complain. Wow… What a loser! You get a code violation because I express my end? We’re in America last I checked.
Can I get a water or am I gonna get violated for a water? Really, don’t even look at me! I promise you, don’t look at me, ’cause I am not the one. Don’t look my way.
