Yes Serena Williams is a multi millionaire but even Serena says she does NOT want to pay a $75,000 dollar fine that's a lot of money and she's right. So what if Serena is super rich $75,000 is a lot of cash for not playing a WTA event that's a stiff fine. Serena is correct why should she pay that fine. I believe ESPN and BBC just have an axe to grind against Serena. Serena knows MORE about the WTA rules then they do. Serena is also the BIGGEST star right now in tennis whether people like her or not. Serena is more famous and more accomplished then all the other players of her generation on the WTA tour. I never seen a woman that has accomplished so much get so little respect. No surprise though since Serena is a black woman in a white dominated sport. I can't wait until Serena's memoir comes out and I sincerely hope Serena writes a chapter about the RACISM in women's tennis. I want to read Serena's perspective about these racist bigots such as Bodo at ESPN, Mary Carillo and those other assholes such as Patrick and John McEnroe at ESPN television.

She had already earned her $75000 by showing up and doing publicity. She is lying when she says she'd have lost the $75000 by withdrawing.

it doesn't matter however small the amount is compared to her overall earnings, the fact is she worked her ass off for that money and she shouldn't have to give it to anybody because she's injured, it's hardly her fault.

It is a racial issue when the biggest star in women's tennis is a black woman and her the people that have an axe to grind to against her are consistently WHITE REPORTERS. Bodo, ESPN television, BBC, and the rest always pick on Serena.

No one has to play injured. She's lying when she says she'd have been fined for withdrawing. She had already earned the $75000 by showing up and doing publicity work.

It takes a while to get the message through to some people but we'll get there eventually.

I disagree that Serena is lying she knows the WTA rules and you don't. Serena is the BIGGEST draw in women's tennis and yes even more famous then Sharapova.

When a multi-millionaire is quibbling over some money being shaved off their year end BONUS for not doing their job, and people flock to their support, something is wrong in this world. It makes Serena look greedy, petty, and lazy. You've got to take these fines to the chin when you want to play your own schedule and have that kind of money.

"It doesn't matter that Serena is a multimillionaire the point is $75,000 is HER MONEY and she doesn't want to pay the fine it's a matter of principle are you so fucking stupid to not get it asswipe!"
