Out of Pocket: Serena Curses Out an Official and Loses the US Open

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News, out of pocket


Serena Williams was one point away from winning the US Open but her mouth lost her that one point. 

After a linesman call of a foot fault on Serena she went ballistic and cursed the official out…while banging her racket.  According to on-lookers the linesman had been calling foul foot faults all throughout the match and we guess this one took Serena over the edge:

Instead of stepping to the baseline to serve again, Williams went over and shouted and cursed at the line judge, pointing at her and thrusting the ball toward her.

“If I could, I would take this … ball and shove it down your … throat,” Williams said. She continued yelling at the line judge, and went back over, shaking her racket in the official’s direction.

In a press conference, Serena explained her behavior by stating she thought the official said they would take her life, but later she apologized stating it was a huge misunderstanding.

Nothing lost on Serena, she has enough wins under her belt to last a lifetime, but it was good entertainment to see her lash out.

    It was a horrible call and a mistake on the official’s part. I woulda been mad too, but she knows better. Unfortunately, you gotta bite you tongue in situations like that, even when you know you’re right.

    Correction: Serena wasn’t one point away from winning, it’s the opposite and that’s why she lost! Anything could have happened if she wouldn’t have made that mistake though!

    She should have remained a professional. To say what she said was unacceptable.

    Damn serena why you had to get all tribal on them…you was getting your azz beat anyway. I guess she knew she was getting beat and this was a way out.

    This was very ridiculous, what annoys me is the fact that white americans rooting for a belgian, am not going to hate, kim played beautifully but Serena should have checked the attitude and could have won the game.

    A most unfortunate incident. I just hope that Serena will learn from this experience and control her emotions if a similar situation arises in the future.

    I’m sad that she has came back to this. Who remembers her and Venus years back when they were still new. They used to cuss out officials all the time. Need to learn to lose with dignity.
