Serena Williams got into a heated argument with the chair umpire on her way to losing the US Open final to Samantha Stosur 6-2, 6-3.
Down a set and facing a break point in the first game of the second, Williams hit a forehand and shouted, “Come on!” as Stosur reached down for a backhand.
Chair umpire Eva Asderaki ruled that Williams hindered Stosur’s ability to complete the point and awarded it to Stosur — putting her up 1-0 in that set.
Williams went over to talk to Asderaki, saying, “I’m not giving her that game.” She also said, “I promise you, that’s not cool. That’s totally not cool.”
Williams really went off on the chair umpire during the game change.
