Her apology

Serena made a statement on Sunday after the foot fault incident.

“Last night everyone could truly see the passion I have for my job. Now that I have had time to gain my composure, I can see that while I don’t agree with the unfair line call, in the heat of battle I let my passion and emotion get the better of me and as a result handled the situation poorly. I would like to thank my fans and supporters for understanding that I am human and I look forward to continuing the journey, both professionally and personally, with you all as I move forward and grow from this experience.”

No remorse, deemed the media.

So she made an apology today.

Hey guys!!!

I want to amend my press statement of yesterday, and want to make it clear as possible – I want to sincerely apologize FIRST to the lines woman, Kim Clijsters, the USTA, and tennis fans everywhere for my inappropriate outburst. I’m a woman of great pride, faith and integrity, and I admit when I’m wrong.

I need to make it clear to all young people that I handled myself inappropriately and it’s not the way to act — win or lose, good call or bad call in any sport, in any manner.

I like to lead by example. We all learn from experiences both good and bad. I will learn and grow from this, and be a better person as a result.


Was the line judge a volunteer? Did the judge know all the rules? Why couldn’t USTA spend little to hire someone who’s competent? Her conduct on court was unsportsmanlike. But why would major player tolerate a quasi-professional? And as if she never got a bad call.

As the USTA officials are saying that they’re launching an investigation, an INVEStigation!! – to decide if to levy more fines or even suspects Serena. It’s bogus. What’s there to investigate? The sisters are playing ladies doubles final – they won 6:2 n 6:2. Higher TV rating to have them in the tourney? Without Serena and Venus, what else do they have to offer? I know the limit shelve life the top players have, but the sisters are sure could dominate the tennis for few more years.

Serena was provoked.
