There’s word that Serena Williams isn’t going to be banned from future U.S. Open tennis tournaments for verbally abusing an umpire during Sunday’s women’s final against Australian Samantha Stosur.  Officials fined her $2,000 for the incident. 

Williams still earned $1.4 million for being the runner up with Stosur beating her 6-2, 6-3.

According to wlky.com, Williams is on a two-year  probation for a similar outburst on a match official.

The U.S. Tennis Association says the fine is “consistent with other fines” for Grand Sam events. They say the tirade didn’t violate the terms of her probation.

Maybe Williams needs some anger management training.
