    I saw it live, flipping back and forth between football games. The call by the line judge was "ticky tacky," at best, but Serena clearly lost her cool. It was obvious she was being outplayed and her outburst was the culmination of that fact. She destroyed a racket in an outburst at the end of the first set. She was going to lose anyway.

    Re: Serena Williams

    I'll admit that I know nothing about Tennis so let me see if I have this right: when they serve they must have their feet behind the line and it's ok to land over the line if the ball has already been hit - correct?

    Either way, what a strange run of events for it to end a match that way.

    I was surprised at the end of the broadcast they actually aired all she said of course bleeping out the curse words. That was some vicious remarks just about a foot fault. Yes it cost her a point, but they way she was playing cost her more than that.

    Re: Serena Williams

    Serena said "I'm going to shove this ball down your ******* throat" and her language got even more salty after that statement.
