Serena Williams Fined $10,000 for Repeatedly Smashing Her Racket on Wimbledon Court

Fabio Fognini 'I wish a bomb would explode in Wimbledon'

Serena Williams has revealed she has apologised to Naomi Osaka and saw a therapist over her outburst in the 2018 US Open final at Flushing Meadows.

While a then-20-year-old Osaka prevailed against her idol 6-2, 6-4 in NY to win her first major, it was overshadowed by controversy, with Williams clashing with chair umpire Carlos Ramos, culminating when he docked her a game for calling him a "thief".

In her first two Wimbledon matches, Serena looked her age, struggling to move around the court and struggling against two players ranked outside the top 100.

Ramos penalized Williams for three separate on-court violations for illegal coaching, breaking her racket and verbal abuse.

In an essay for Harper's Bazaar published Tuesday, Williams recalled how confident she was after winning her first grand slam at the US Open in 1999.

"Every night, as I would try to go to sleep, unresolved questions ran through my mind in a never-ending loop: How can you take a game away from me in the final of a Grand Slam?" "I was searching for answers".

Lifting her play a much-needed notch down the stretch to grab the last three games, capping the comeback with her 19th ace - at 121 miles per hour, no less - Williams reached the semifinals at the All England Club by gutting out a 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 win over 55th-ranked Alison Riske.

Konta's often tetchy relationship with Britain's tennis media corps turned sour again as she accused them of "picking on me" after her loss.

She continued, "I would love the chance to live that moment over again".

United States vows to maintain pressure on Iran amid tension
One of the main achievements of the deal was Iran's agreement to dismantle its advanced IR-2M centrifuges, used to purify uranium. Still, the threatened measures also appear meant to be sufficiently ambiguous to hold back from fully repudiating the deal.

"Okay. I mean, I don't think you need to pick on me in a harsh way. I would never, ever want the light to shine away", she added. I would get another one for my house.

"I just needed to get it out of the way, put the business bun up and just get to business", she said.

Pushed further, she said: "Please don't patronise me ..."

You can catch both Williams and Osaka competing for the championship at Wimbledon 2019, going on now through July 14. It's one you remember best; it's supposed to be the most special.

Any doubt over whether Williams would be in the mood for the mixed doubles was dispelled in the first game as she smashed a volley straight at Martin, apologising profusely after the ball cannoned off his body. I had felt that it was my fault and that I should have kept my mouth closed.

Considering she was recently named one of the world's richest self-made women by FORBES, we're guessing she isn't sweating these coins.

This helped Serena realise that it wasn't the backlash which made it hard for her to move on.

"She said that she was proud of me and that I should know that the crowd wasn't booing at me".

Murray had to fend off some break points in the opening game of the second set before Williams began to take centre stage, defying physics with some of the angles of her winners.
