Serena Williams Outburst Video: Foot Fault Transcript
It's the question that everyone has been asking after watching the Serena Williams vs Kim Clijsters US Open semifinal: What did Serena say after her US Open Foot Fault? Tennis officials are even more curious as they plan to investigate the US Open foot fault and the Serena Williams outburst.
So what did Serena Williams say to the line judge? We're no lip-readers, but the general consensus around the web is that this is what Serena said after her US Open foot fault:
“I swear to God, I’m fuckin’ takin’ this ball and shovin’ it down your fuckin’ throat… I swear to God.”
The Serena Williams outburst ends with a "motherfucker" for punctuation.
It appears that the US Open line judge heard Serena Williams say something pretty menacing. After her initial outburst, Serena Williams yelled at the line judge again, loudly pleading “I didn’t say I would kill you. Are you serious? Are you serious? I didn’t say that.”
So why was Serena Williams so angry? She lost her temper after being called for a foot fault on a second serve while trailing 15-30 and 5-6 in the second set. Williams was already down a set after Clijster won the first set 6-4.
The US Open Serena foot fault gave Clijsters a match point, but it was never played. Serena Williams was charged with a code violation for unsportsmanlike conduct, meaning Williams was penalized a point, giving Clijsters the win.
