Serena's Foot fault and penalty point

Firstly, to threaten the life of another human being is completely unacceptable. Just completely unacceptable. Secondly, when you foot fault, it's your fault. It's not the fault of the lines person. You have no right to get angry at the person. Thirdly, don't lie about it on national television. Don't wave your racquet at the lady, clearly mouth "I'll shove this down your throat" and then say you didn't say it...Serena deserves 100% of the boos she received on the way out, and I hope she gets booed again. If you're only going to show up to do your job four times a year, don't bite the hand that feeds you by cursing out the tournament officials. Grow up, Serena Williams.

The replay I saw showed her foot did touch the line... but I can't be sure - maybe it was the angle.

Need to see a clip of that on Youtube again.

Your sig picture exceeds the 200 pixel height limit.

Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

Hell to the no.

Re: Lost all respect for Serena

oh cmon...you don't call foot fault at that stage of the match

it's like in the NBA where you don't call "soft" fouls in the last 2 minutes

Re: Lost all respect for Serena

I'm sorry, were you right next to them?
Did you hear Serena threaten the woman?
Until there's proof, keep it shut.

How would you feel if you got foot faulted? You'd feel pretty fucked off, wouldn't you? It's what happens in the world of tennis.

Re: Lost all respect for Serena

I disagree. It's not like she was really going to shove the thing down the lady's throat. They're just words said in the heat of battle.

Re: Do You Reckon Serena Foot Faulted at 15-30?

Yeah the reply they showed seemed like the foot did touch the line.. Serena should have just kept her head.. It just seemed like couple of big serves and she would be back in the set! Just very Stanford ish performance..
