Wozniacki was the last player defaulted at US Open

First of all, Serena did not default yesterday. She was assessed a one-point penalty that happened to be enough to end the match. But since people asked who was the last person defaulted at USO (or a slam), the curious answer is Caroline Wozniacki.

This was 2006 when Caro played USO juniors as No.2 seed, right after her Wimbledon victory. She played Alexandra Panova the 1st round, leading by a set, then was defaulted after allegedly calling a linesman "f*cking a**hole!" Caro denied the charge, saying she "was talking to myself" but was sent packing anyway. Report said she stood outside players' lounge and cried for an hour.

Some have considered the treatment harsh, that the authorities just wanted to "set example" for juniors. It might have been a blessing in disguise.

I dont see how mild swearing defaults you, like Azarenka wasn't defaulted at Wimbledon.

Sharapova said "Are you fucking kidding me" to an umpire and wasn't defaulted, seemes like this is all over the place.

Re: Wozniacki was the last player defaulted at US Open

But Sharapova wasn't telling the word in an insulting way, and she immediately said I'm sorry afterwards

really, he can barely speak english I can't imagine him swearing, or was it some other issue.

Arent Spirela and Rodionova the only WTA girls to ever be defaulted in the history of the tour or are there more?

Here's the official statement from U.S. Open Tournament Referee Brian Earley

"This morning, in his first-round qualifying match against Michael Russell (USA), Richard Gasquet (FRA) was defaulted for Unsportsmanlike Conduct. It was reported to me that, after losing his service game, he threw his racquet recklessly from the baseline toward the back fence, in the vicinity of a line umpire. The line umpire attempted to get out of the way, but was struck by the racquet, close to his eye. At first, he appeared to be unhurt, but subsequently approached the chair umpire to show him that he was bleeding from two small areas where the racquet had struck him. After the discussion with the ITF Supervisor, the on-site Assistant Referee and the chair umpire, Mr. Gasquet was informed that he had been defaulted.

daniela hantuchova received a point penalty on match point too! it was many years ago against sugiyama, but hers was for not keeping to the time limit rather than profanities..

I knew it couldn't have been a swearing issue.

Yup It wasn't as direct and as harsh-sounding. Actually quite funny saying sorry right after. Of course, there was "Allez up your fucking ass"

And she said "I'm sorry" 1 second after that . Such a rebel !

Honestly, it's hard for me to imagine Caroline says these things.

And again, there is a difference between saying "fuck" and threatening somebody.

You don't get disqualified for saying that. No way.
