She Did It Again: Serena Williams Blows Up in U.S. Open Loss

Chris Chase, Yahoo! Sports, September 11, 2011

Oh no, she did it again.

Mt. Serena erupted once more in defeat Sunday at the U.S. Open. This time it happened in the tournament final after chair umpire Eva Asderaki ruled that Serena’s loud “come on!,” which she yelled during what she thought was a forehand winner, had been shrieked before the point was over. Since it interrupted opponent Sam Stosur’s attempt at a return, Asderaki properly awarded Stosur the point because of the “hindrance rule” that states a player can’t verbally interfere with the opponent’s points.

{snip}

Serena was understandably displeased, though she had no ground on which to stand. The call was obvious. Serena disagreed and became more incensed when she thought that the umpire, Asderaki, was the same official who was in the chair for her infamous 2009 blowup at the tournament. It wasn’t.

“Aren’t you the one who screwed me over last time here?” Serena asked after being told of the point penalty. “Yeah, you are.” {snip}

{snip} Stosur looked momentarily stunned. Serena went on to break Stosur to even the match and continued her diatribe against the umpire during the next two changeovers.

“A code violation because I expressed who I am? We’re in America last I checked. Am I gonna get violated for a water? Really, don’t even look at me. I promise you, don’t look at me because I am not the one. Don’t look my way.” [ . . . ]

“If you ever see me walking down the hall, walk the other way. Because you’re out of control. Totally out of control. You’re a hater, you’re unattractive inside. Who would do such a thing? And I never complain. Wow.”

{snip}

The same impotent U.S. Open officials who were bullied by men’s players into moving the final because of rain and put a women’s semifinal on a small court sat silent as Serena humiliated Asderaki. {snip}

For an instant it looked like Serena would be invigorated by the incident. Stosur broke soon after and went to win 6-2, 6-3 in a stunning upset.

    Serena is ranked #28 in the world. She’s just mad because most of the top white women have long passed her by.

    This great black hype and her sister are very over-rated.

  • tightwad

    She(it) needs a test for chromosome count.

  • Tom Iron

    The woman is just way over her head when it comes to acting in a civilized manner.

  • chuck

    Her consumption of steroids causes her to lose her temper. Judging by the size of her muscles she is using performance enhancing drugs. she lost to a better opponent and hopefully for the game of tennis she decides to take retirement. she is bad for the game period.

  • Istvan

    Serena Williams proves two points: 1) that black men are violent and impulsive; and 2) that participants in female sporting events should have to under go hormone testing.

    Williams never claims that she didn’t violate the hindrance rule which she obviously did. What is her basis for arguing? It’s a bad rule? It shouldn’t be applied to her?

  • Wayne Engle

    Serena Williams, like so many blacks, especially in professional sports, tries to get her way by yelling at and threatening smaller, nearly always White, officials. Notice that she said, “We’re in America last time I checked,” and “You’re a hater!” She was trying to imply racial bias. In other words, she was playing the race card. She’s done it before, no doubt she’ll do it again. A $2,000 fine? You’ve got to be kidding! That would be like five bucks to me.

    It seems that Williams learned her angry, confrontational attitude from her father, who I’ve heard carries a permanent grudge against White people.

    Typical black behavior when they don’t get their way.

  • sbuffalonative

    Every athlete eventually reaches and then passes their peak performance just as new and younger players come along. Some accept this with grace. Others do not.

    Whatever the cause of this outburst, it’s bad sportsmanship and shouldn’t be tolerated among professionals of this level.

    Oh so what! Athletes blow up and go crazy all the time! Remember John McEnroe? If she was a lousy tennis player no one would even be discussing this.

    This is not news. Blah blah blah!

    Here is the video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNMSMq9VxV8

    She broke the rule, she was penalized.

    But what was really ugly is her diatribe towards the umpire, calling her ugly and a hater. Then she tells the umpire not to look at her, as though she is scolding a child. Most professional sports won’t tolerate that type of abuse. They tolerate it a little in baseball, but the umpire has the final say and can through eject the player or the coach. In baseball it is just theatrics. But in tennis it seems personal, very ugly insults.

  • Stiv

    This woman has much too much testosterone. That’s one part of her problem.

  • SF Paul

    Hopefully tennis will give this disrespectful black woman one last chance and after the third strike ban her from tennis. It probably won’t happen though as the cries of racism would surely be heard. I don’t understand how the official was humiliated as the article stated. Seems to me this ridiculous tirade should humiliate the obnoxious black spewing the hate.

  • Anonymous

    Looks like a steroid laced person more muscled than most of the men.

    Definitely not a feminine looking person or personality.

    Very satisfied with her loss and very happy that she was unable to intimidate or upset Stosaur with her antics.

    The tour does not need her.

    Why does Serena compete in the women’s division?

  • John

    As a proud Aussie I took great delight in watching `Serene`Serena

    getting whipped fair and square by our Sammy Stosur

    This time I turned on the TV after the outburst but remembered watching the other incident live on TV a few years ago when she menaced the slightly built lineswoman with her racquet and threatened to `fxxking kill her` for making what she thought was an incorrect call. I watched dumbfounded that such

    an outburst was not more severely punished as apparently on this occasion also .

    Why do black athletes(even females) with very few exceptions show this thug ghetto mentality.Or perhaps that`s a rhetorical question.

    For what its worth to Serena`s credit she did admit after the game that despite the disputed point she lost to the better player.

    Its pity the temper tantrums mar what would be a great game of tennis .

  • olewhitelady

    Many blacks will push whitey as far as they can. In the past, most learned that there would be immediate reaction to such behavior and had enough common sense to refrain.

    Some people see Williams’s antics as those of a diva. But it’s merely typical black behavior. And Serena, with her obvious abundance of testosterone, is more likely to explode than more feminine black women. She, like many other black people, are self-defeating.

  • rechill

    Here’s an idea. SHUT your mouth until the point!

  • Paleface 6

    “Stosur broke soon after and went to win 6-2, 6-3 in a stunning upset.”

    I hope she had the good grace to make it into the locker room, before laughing until tears rolled down her face because Williams blew the match by losing her temper. Every tennis player now knows how to make Serena Williams lose.

  • Hans Schneider

    Williams should be banned from any public and official tournaments because of bad behaviour.

  • Miss Whitey

    I watched this match. How I was hoping the the Aussie Stosur would win and I am happy that she did.

    I felt such sympathy for the chair umpire Eva Asderaki. How humiliating it must have been for her to sit there and take Serena’s abuse.

    Serena needs to take some anger management courses.

    Agreed. This is much adu aobut nothing. Secondly, all of you who are comparing Serena Williams to a man might want to check and see how masculine you really are yourselves.

  • john in germany

    Do the Williams sisters have any fans who are not black? What an embarrasment to have these people call themselves American.

  • Michael C. Scott

    She shouldn’t be banned; her theatrics are a marvellous reminder the the public of the inability of most Bantus to act in a civilized manner.

    We can only hope Williams is wasting the money she makes in the manner typical of black professional atheletes, because when she finally has to retire, she’ll be a badly-behaved BROKE black has-been.

  • Anonymous

    Miss Williams was raised in a very much top-of-the middle-class home, if not outright wealthy. She acts like any ghetto-raised “underprivileged” female sports thug. It just goes to show it’s not the status of the home in which the child is raised, it’s the IQ of the person playing. (To put it any more bluntly would be “racisss…)

  • Anonymous

    I refuse to watch the Williams sisters play tennis, or even watch the WNBA, because I get ill looking at masculine, sweaty, black women.

    Answer:

    Because they don’t have a separate division for Sasquatches.

  • Anonymous

    A perfect example of how black people behave badley and, when consequences follow, they play the “race card.”

    Until they stop this self-defeating behavior, they will continue to enslave themselves, while always blaming whites for their mistakes and limitations.

    Of course she thought it was the same Umpire! After all, we Whites and Asians, we all look alike.

    Because she is a woman. Why do you and some other posters think that it acceptable to make such inappropriate comments.

    She still beat everyone until the final. Thing is, she’s fat, slow, out of shape and thinks that just being black is enough when it’s not. She’s still better than almost all the rest, but just not quite. It takes practice and work and she doesn’t do that at the moment. She’s the number one money winner of all time even though Graf has almost twice as many titles. So, she’s made more money than anyone else, but feels she’s being picked on. No one is buying it.

    Well…let us not forget the orginal “N…..”, John McEnroe, who disgraced whites everywhere with his pathetic tempermental outbursts and boorish behavior.

  • Anonymous

    maybe she needs to layoff the steroids – less ‘roid rage that way.

    imagine – a black being loud, obnoxious and wanting preferential treatment…

    it’s just unthinkable.

    maybe the ref should’ve attempted to make reparations and given her the match.

    this world is such a Politically Correct joke.

  • generalquagmyer

    Well… She’s in the spotlight a lot and 98 times out of a hundred DOESN’T act like that. Not that I’m feeling apologetic about black behavior, but having lived through Jimmy Conners, John McEnroe, and the Ryan Leaf era of the San Diego Chargers this doesn’t seem noteworthy other than the “hater” reference, which only a non-white would ever feel entitled to use.

    Saw Serena up close awhile back. She’s 5’10,” about 150 pounds, and not bad looking for the type. Not MY type, though.

  • Un-Indoctrinated

    I will never forget back in the late ’90s or early 2000 when one of the Williams’sisters( or brothers, by physical appearance) were playing in the French Open. The French crowd was raucously cheering because Venus or Serena was getting beat. After the match Venus said how unprofessional the crowd was. Is she the pot or the kettle? What comes around goes around in athletics, too. It made me want to be a Frenchman for a minute.

  • Anonymous

    Even though Selena’s feminity has been questioned on this page more than once, Amren staff is guilty of handing out the ultimate insult to the umpire and not her by giving this article the sub-heading “Accosts umpire even though he made the right call.” on the main news page.

    Really pity that poor woman!

  • Stiv

    To the best of my knowledge, John McEnroe never threatened anybody with physical harm. He threw a tantrum, but she has made at least an implied threat to two umpires/line judges.

    Hard to believe people want to downplay her behavior.

    Are you serious? Yes. He did. I remember his juvenile outbursts. Also, check out you tube. You can see for yourself that he made a number of threats to referees and others. If anything, it is hard to believe that some of you want are making such a big deal out of this largely non-story..

    To be frank, comments like yours and similar posters of your ilk are disgraceful. They do little to promote our movement to Whites who may visit this website and see such mean-spirited, arguably, misogynist rhetoric. You (and others) should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Not only am I not ashamed of myself, I take pride in being able to express myself without being intimidated by political correctness. You speak of “our movement” yet you give yourself away with standard leftist terms like “mean-spirited” and “misogynist.” Were you so indignant when Bill Maher called Sara Palin a “bimbo?”

    You speak of “our movement” but I wonder how upset you are at the constant brainwashing white people undergo to make them feel guilty for black failures. Surely you are aware that blacks are elevated by the media to the status of kings and queens while whites are constantly disparaged. I am sick of the hatred shown toward the White race by blacks and their white enablers, and I am sick of being told by people like you that any negative reference to blacks is improper. By referring to the bulked-up, misshapen, probably steroid-saturated brute Serena Williams as I did, I am merely restoring the balance, and I am trying to open the eyes of poor, brainwashed White people and make them see blacks as they really are, not as the media want us to see them.

    As for my little comment having an adverse effect on prospective Amren adherents, let’s get real. People are not attracted or repelled by the comments they read here. What influences people to become race realists is their daily experience of living among blacks, and seeing the savage behavior of so many blacks, and that savagery was prominently displayed by Williams in her reaction to a fair and just call by an umpire. Every day White people are intimidated and terrorized, or worse, by blacks who act the way Williams did. Let us stop being intimidated by brutes like Williams, who rule by violence and threats. And let us stop being intimidated by leftists who lecture us about what is proper, while they impose their Marxist agenda on us.

    Typical black behaviour, they are always crying “unfair” and throw temper tantrums. They are the biggest babies when they do not get their way. It’s time we stopped coldding the black race and make them rise (yeah right) or fall on their own merits.
