Lmao. Loads've people hate the Williams sisters.

She slips up once, and everyone pounces on her as quickly as they can. Unfortunate tbh. She'll probably be back next year with a vengeance.

Oh, and two things:

1) It wasn't a footfault.
2) No-one, except that official seems to have heard her say: "I'll kill you."

It seems pretty clear she made a physical threat to the linejudge. At the very least she should be banned from the tour until she is prepared to apologise for what she did.

Also, why the hate for Venus? I don't particularly care for her but I'm not sure what she has done to be disliked. Serena is another matter entirely.

I know that it wasn't actually a foot fault, and maybe the line judge was wrong in calling it BUT there is absolutely no excuse for the way Serena acted out there. As a professional, she should have been able to act maturely about the call instead of threatening the line judge! If she had a problem, which admittedly she should have, it would have been simple enough to go and talk to the umpire about it, instead of acting in the manner that she did.

Also, in my opinion, what she said to the line judge is a lot worse than a lot of people are making out. It's just a shame that less people heard what she actually said.

Would like to add that I am not a huge fan of woman's tennis, but Serena is one of the players I like, so I'm not just looking for reasons to hate her.

I don't think it mattered what she said. Her behaviour was confrontational and deserved the penalty. Pity. She has a nice arse.
