Tennis star Serena Williams was fined $2,000 today (Monday) for verbally lashing out at the umpire during her loss to Australian tennis star Sam Stosur in Sunday’s U.S. Open final.
During the second set of the game, Serena was penalized for grunting/yelling in celebration before the ball landed. Stosur was unable to hit the ball, however, the point was still taken away from Serena and given to the Australian because of the hindrance rule that allows for a point penalty if the “hindrance” is considered to be on purpose.
After the point was taken away, which ended up helping Stosur win the game, Williams launched into a verbal tirade.
