She can clearly be heard saying she would take the ball and shove it up the line judge's backside (well, between beeps), but has the nerve to say she doesn't know why the lady would feel threatened.

I was switching between this and the coronation of Matt Barkley. This was basically like Randy Orton grabbing a referee for an intentional DQ after getting his ass kicked for 20 minutes. Her day probably would've ended about five minutes later if she didn't blow up.

How about a little props for Kim Clijsters taking a major title in her *third* tournament back after maternity leave? That's just one hell of an accomplishment. Hate to see it get overshadowed by Serena's outburst.

(And, hey, I spelled "Clijsters" correctly in one try. I didn't think I could!)

True that.

As Super Shane said, Clijsters had kicked Serena's ass (she was winning a ludicrous percentage of points when the rally went over three strokes) for the best part of two sets. Serena was being a sulky cow all match because of it, and the outburst just brought forward what looked inevitable anyway. Nothing but respect for Kim.

Serena on the other hand seems determined to make me hate her every time I start finding her halfway likeable. Why she thought it would be a good idea to do anything other than apologise afterwards is anyone's guess.

Probably because she decided the publicity from keeping this story going would help sell some of these (search.barnesandnoble.com)...

Good Lord Faber got his ass handed to him. Supposedly the best pound for pound in the world, with the best conditioning ever. However, that won't put your jaw back on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnYwuvSwUMo
