Whereas Richard was accused of fixing matches between Serena and Venus, Serena had her personal pitfalls to cope with over time. There have been a number of situations by which she bought into verbal blows with tennis umpires. One such incident occurred within the 2009 U.S. Open throughout which Serena threw her racket down on the courtroom out of anger. She was fined $10,500 for unsportsmanlike conduct when she spewed profanities at a lineswoman on the courtroom.
Serena was reported to have informed the umpire she would take a tennis ball and shove it down her throat. And, Serena mentioned on the time, she had adopted the foundations on the courtroom.
“An apology from me?” She mentioned after the incident. “How many individuals yell at linespeople? I see it occurring on a regular basis. I do not know what number of instances I’ve seen that occur. I’m knowledgeable. I am not the beggar, like, ‘Please, please, please, let me have one other probability,’ as a result of it was the foundations and I play by the foundations.”
