During a heated game against Kim Clijsters, Serena Williams loses her temper not once but twice, with a blow of harsh words putting an end to the match point. Serena Williams first smashes her racket in rage, then after disagreeing the with lines woman about calling a foot fault, threatens her with profanities- see the video here. Showing off her religious side- Serena makes a point of “Swearing to God…” and saying something about taking a tennis ball and shoving it down the lines woman’s throat. Maybe she had better start praying to God instead. Her nasty temper caused quite a stir on the court and set a very disturbing example of the kind of person she is. What is even more surprising is not her temper, but her reaction to the reporters in a Q&A session after the incident. Serena nonchalantly skated over the fact that she had done anything wrong and scoffed at the notion of an apology, saying people lose their temper all the time in tennis matches. Way to go Serena, you just flushed the respect out of Queens.
