As you all know, the US Open women’s semifinal between Serena Williams and Kim Clijsters ended infamously. Williams was called for a foot fault which handed Clijsters two match points. Provoked, the 11-time Grand Slam champion yelled at and threatened the line judge and was consequently penalized which caused her to lose such an important match.
The incident will be investigated by the International Tennis Federation, Grand Slam Committee and US Open referee Brian Earley. A representative from the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour is also expected to be included.
Let’s see what the world No.2 Williams, who is expected to be fined heavily, said about the scandal at the post-match press conference.
