"I've never been in a fight in my life...I don't know why she would feel threatened"

So not only did she threaten the linesperson's physical well-being, doing so while brandishing a tennis racquet, all while caught on tape, but now she denies that she threatened her?

Why is it that anyone believes anything that comes out of her mouth? Denial is her M.O.

She is an embarassment to the game.

Well do you actually believe Serena would physically harm a linesperson ?

If she act like that after a line call in tennis, how would she react outside the court if something worse will happen?

Serena is a joke

Don't be ridiculous.

There is zero evidence of Serena being physically violent toward anyone.

She lost her temper, said something stupid in the heat of the moment and paid the price.

The joke is all the screaming for her to be crucified.

If anyone says, I will kill you and threat anyone like she did, something is very very wrong.

Who said her behaviour was right ?

My point is that a player abusing a linesperson on court is always a possibility. The line judge reported the comment and appropriate action was taken according to the rules.

It is not about whether she was threatened or not.

Some posters on here make it sound like Serena was going to knife her in the corridor or something and there is zero evidence that she would do that, or indeed, that the lines judge thought she would.

Serena is a normal person like everyone else. She is not a homicidal maniac any more than I expect you are.

She's quite right to defend herself here.

Re: "I've never been in a fight in my life...I don't know why she would feel threaten

Serena isn't a violent person. She said something in the heat of the moment at the worst possible time and she paid the price. I don't think the linesperson genuinely felt threatened and Serena never said she wanted to kill her as the linesperson falsely stated to the umpire. I've said a lot worse things when I've gotten mad before. You don't mean it at all but when you're angry you just want to lash out.
Still though, I'm happy Kim is in the final

"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"

a ball in the throat can cost more damage than a knife.

I don't know why she'd feel threatened.

Let's see, if this big muscular athlete came up and hovered over me while I was sat down, brandishing a racquet me like a weapon and shouting obscenities and threatening to smack a ball down my throat...

No, I wouldn't feel threatened at all. I'd wonder where Tinky Winky, Dipsy and La-La had got to....

of course you would feel threatened in that situation, but this morning, with a clear mind and no serena in my face, i would recognise that serena wouldn't have put a finger on me, it was a verbal-telling off in the heat of the moment

This is true, and no I don't.

But that's no excuse. A threat is a threat, whether it was empty or not. It doesn't matter what her true intentions were in her mind, what matters are the words that came out of her mouth.

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović
