I am a loss for words. How can a (class player) like Serena be such a cry baby. She has made Millions of $ And yet act the way she did on Sunday. The player on Saturday was not the same player on Sunday. I ask why Serena? Aren't you a little old for your actions. So you lost! Big deal, no one is perfect. I'm still your fan!!

I am stunned that a self proclaimed model for young woman would display such disrespectful conduct. I was a fan, but this conduct can only be summed up as "she is the ugly one inside" for all this hate to come out is a example of this. You need to apologize to this umpire for your public flogging of her. Shame on you!

Finally, finally people are seeing the ugly hidden self in Serena. Her father drove both daughters hard, very hard to play competitive tennis. Venus got through it with self control;Serena was touted by her father as the competitive one. Some mistakenly think competitiveness means you shout, make faces, shout things out, shake your fist at the opponent, challenge referees.This seems to describe Serena. The light touch on her pocketbook was surprising since she is on probation for similar threatening rage against a lines person.As long as she is allowed to continue upset the game, fluster a decent minded opponent, tennis is not the better for that behavior. How many times, how many incidents before a real hafty fine is given and some suspension time if on probation?

This is appauling to say the least. A $2,000 fine shows that none of the governing bodies in tennis have any balls. She needs to be heavily fined and suspended and should call the umpire and apologize to her. This is sickening.

Serena, You are not alone in this world there are thousands of kids that look up to you and you have disappointed them. I think it's time to grow-up and honor your little fans. Stand behind what the Tennis assoc is trying to do for the young people on our planet. You owe them an appology!!!!!

she is the furthest thing from a class act and you are likely her only fan other than her retarded family.
