Serena Williams Fined and on Probation for Tirade

The worlds number one tennis player, Serena Williams has been fined $175,000 and put on probation for two years for her tirade at the U.S. Open, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) said today. The ITF said a further major offence at a grand slam in the next two years would see her suspended from the U.S. Open in 2010, 2011 or 2012. The fine will be reduced to $82,500 if she commits no further major offence through 2011. Serena is a classy lady who let the pressures of the match get to her and I'm sure she has learned a value lesson that you will pay for bad sportsmanship.
