From an article: The bumping incident occurred after Williams held serve to lead 4-3 in the second set. The players collided as they walked to their chairs on the changeover. Neither attempted to avoid the other, and neither apologized.
"I'm not going to move (out of the way)," said Spirlea, who was once fined a record $20,000 for cursing an umpire in Palermo, Sicily. "She's never trying to turn (to get out of the way). She thinks she's (expletive) Venus Williams. I was like, `I want to see if she's turning.' She didn't, so ... "
Williams downplayed the collision.
"I'm not having any injuries from that bump," she said with a smile. "I think we just both weren't looking. I think we both were just concentrating on trying to stay in the match and trying to win the match. I'm sorry she feels that way. It's not really a big thing to me."
