Serena Williams lost the US open today to Samantha Stosur. During a crucial point in the match, Serena had a run in with the chair umpire.
intentional hindrance by caseycarlsonx1
“During the first game of the second set, Williams yelled “Come on!” at the ball she’d served before it reached Stosur, but Asderaki called hindrance on Williams, which gave Stosur the break point – and the game.
Williams apparently was unaware of the rule. She first asked Asderaki if she was “the one who screwed me over last time? Yeah you are” – a reference to her getting penalized in 2009 after yelling at a line judge.”
During a break, Serena once again started in on the umpire:
“If you ever see me walking down the hall, look the other way, because you’re out of control… You’re totally out of control, you’re a hater, and you’re unattractive inside. Who would do such a thing? And I never complain. Wow… We’re in America last I checked. Can I get a water or am I gonna get violated for a water? Really, don’t even look at me! I promise you, don’t look at me, ’cause I am not the one. Don’t look my way.”
Congratulations to Samantha Stousur. Oh and for the record, that was not the same umpire from 2009.
