Serena Williams Threatens to Shove a Tennis Ball Down a Small Asian Lady's Throat

During the 2009 US Open women's semi-finals, Serena Williams got called on a foot fault (stepping on the baseline while serving) on an extremely crucial point. She then walked over to the line judge who made the call, a small, sheepish little simpleton of a woman, and gently disagreed with her:

"If I could, I'd take this fucking ball and shove it down your fucking throat."

The line judge then scurried over to the chair umpire, similar to how a cockroach would after the kitchen lights are turned on, and complained. She actually lied and said that Serena threatened to kill her. Serena was penalized a point which just happened to be the match point, and thus lost.

Of course sports writers attacked Serena left and right, calling her "classless" and "disgusting," but I doubt any of these writers have played a minute of tennis in their stupid little lives. I've been playing tennis for decades (from my wheelchair) and watching it for even longer and I have yet to see a foot fault called. They are essentially NEVER called during major games or points. For a line judge to call something like that at such a pivotal moment of such a huge match is just absurd. And just look at this line judge. She looks like her life could not be any more pointless. My guess is that after years of being ignored by pretty much everyone, she wanted to finally be heard. Good job. No one still knows who you are. I couldn't find a single website that referred to her by her name. She's going to be forgotten in a week and will never work at the US Open again. The ironic thing is that close angle views don't even show Serena committing a foot fault.

Of course when John McEnroe broke his racket and screamed and cursed at officials, it was cute. The double standard is almost blinding. Serena Williams had every right to be infuriated. I honest to God hope that she wins every major tournament for the rest of her career.
