Serena Williams brings ghetto to Tennis

Posted on September 30, 2011 
Filed Under Videos

Two years ago, in her last appearance at Flushing Meadows, Williams was fined £82500 and handed a suspended ban after threatening to stuff a ball down a lineswoman’s throat. This time she became involved in a furious row with umpire Eva Asderaki after shouting out “Come on” in the middle of the point. Williams refused to shake Asderaki’s hand at the end of the match, which Stosur won 6-2, 6-3. The flashpoint erupted in the second game of the second set, as Williams — facing a break point on her own serve — fired an apparently unreturnable forehand winner into Stosur’s backhand corner. Stosur lunged for the ball and only just got the tip of her frame on to it, deflecting it into the back-boards of the court. But Asderaki called it back because of Williams’s shout, which came before the contact was made. This was a “hindrance call”, meaning that the point went to Stosur and the break was completed. Williams immediately roared up to the umpire, saying: “Aren’t you the one who screwed me over last time? Are you coming after me? That is totally not cool.” Then, at the next change of ends, she went off into a wild rant, saying: “Don’t even look at me, You’re a hater. You’re very unattractive inside. I never complain. Who would do such a thing? You’re punishing me for expressing my emotion.” It was an unedifying incident all round, and the best that can be said is that, by holding her nerve to see out the win, Stosur managed to prevent Williams from turning the women’s final

    what about john mcenroe, donald trump, & many whites who are known for being menacing and treating people like dirt. THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GHETTO OR RACE. she is young, with money/bad judgment and having a diva moment. Adreniline on 205 degrees because she is playing so hard..she didnt used to act like that! and didnt when she came from the ghetto.. Hollywood is making her a brat. This has nothing to do with ghetto

    “That’s so not cool”, she talks like she’s in high school or something. “Classless” is spot on PMac. I can’t understand why they constantly show every second of this woman and her sister at the major’s and basically ignore all else that’s going on. She should be seeded in the men’s division for christ sake!

    i guess patrick never heard anything his brother said to umpires……

  6. DCUPtoejuice on September 30th, 2011 12:00 am

    McEnroe should have at least added that he did similar things but never to level of threatening type harassment that Serena does. He would say they needed glasses, were idiots, but never made them feel like he was going to attack them.

    I don’t really think this was all that racist. Maybe when she said the umpire was a hater, but not all that much
    What we saw was someone acting as a product of their upbringing and where they came from. The words the announcers choose to describe it…disrespectful, innapropriate etc, does’nt even slice the cheese. This was vile.

    @wardd413 I would be surprised if she even apologized in private.

  19. Cream234 on September 30th, 2011 12:00 am

    @Elizabethx7x Too bad this match wont be remembered for her triumph, but instead for this piece of trash’s big mouth.

  20. Cream234 on September 30th, 2011 12:00 am

    @Quentin88pkt She like, here we go again.

  21. Cream234 on September 30th, 2011 12:00 am

    @YouMaddYepYouMadd At this point, so many years later, nobody is glorifying it. They are poking fun at it and he pokes fun at himself. As for Serena, she was wrong from the very start yet still plays like shes the victim. And she dosent hold back. She may not cuss but she is such trash, and she shows it.

  22. YouMaddYepYouMadd on September 30th, 2011 12:00 am

    @Cream234 Yea? obviously it is ok when Mcenroe is making bank off commericials glorifying his tirades

  23. dcnhvhb on September 30th, 2011 12:00 am

  24. Quentin88pkt on September 30th, 2011 12:00 am
