Serena Williams & Her Diva Act Deserved to Lose (VIDEO)

Serena WilliamsOn the 10th anniversary of 9/11, it would have been great to see an American win the U.S. Open in New York today, and for awhile it looked like Serena Williams would do it. But in the final round Australian Sam Stosur beat Williams 6-2, 6-3. And honestly after the way Williams acted during the match, it wasn't even that disappointing to see her defeated.

She once again let her temper fly, insulted the umpire, and basically exhibited the kind of poor sportsmanship that no one wants to see rewarded with a win.


It started when Williams shrieked "come on!" loudly while a ball was still in play. According to Yahoo! Sports, she seemed to think it was going to win her the point, but when Stosur went to hit it, she yelled in what was seemingly an attempt to mess up the shot. As that's against the rules, the umpire gave the point to Stosur.

If after that, Williams would have just apologized, it would have been forgivable, a mistake made in the heat of the game. But Williams didn't let it go there. She was pissed and let it be known.

If you recall, there as an ugly incident in 2009 in which Williams attacked an umpire during her match with Kim Clijsters. Apparently Williams thought the judge today was the same one and blasted her. "Aren't you the one who screwed me over last time here?" Yeah, you are," she wrongly concluded. Then she went even further:

A code violation because I expressed who I am? We're in America last I checked. Am I gonna get violated for a water? Really, don't even look at me. I promise you, don't look at me because I am not the one. Don't look my way.

If you ever see me walking down the hall, walk the other way. Because you're out of control. Totally out of control. You're a hater, you're unattractive inside. Who would do such a thing. And I never complain. Wow.

Talk about an unattractive side, Serena. She wouldn't even shake the umpire's hand in the end. Congrats to Stosur on her win, which was well deserved for her amazing performance and composure on the court despite Williams' diva act. Here's the video in which you can see some of it play out for yourself.
