Serena Williams

I Regret US Open Outburst

9/13/2011 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Serena Williams is telling friends ... she's sorry about her outburst during the women's final at the US Open yesterday -- when she berated a referee for penalizing her at a crucial point in the match.

Sources extremely close to Serena tell TMZ ... the tennis star feels like she got lost in the heat of the moment -- and simply believes her emotions got the better of her.

Serena was fined $2,000 for the outburst -- but sources tell us, the tennis star is less concerned about the money than she is about getting her game back on track.

Calls to Serena's rep weren't returned.

I know she was sorry from the beginning. She just got frustrated just like all the other players do, especially this USOPEN. A lot of them got frustrated and she vented. Shows true character to me.

Didn't she say the same thing last time this happened?

They should've got Rod**** too for complaining all the time.

people are too sensitive.

she didn't curse at the umpire and she didn't raise her voice.

the hindrance rule is stupid anyway.

I've seen Andy Rod**** and Andy Murray YELL at the umpires time after time which doesn't bother me because they're just complaining about calls, no big deal to me.

If people want to jump all over Serena they better be all over Rod**** and Murray as well. The bottom line is let the players express their feelings towards a call it may be a bad call.

Fat Mike    

Michael Jordan just got fined $100,000 by the NBA for making a few comments about the salary dispute to a reporter. Her $2,000 fine is a joke

Oh come on, why is this news??? She does this every year!!! Or twice a year, well actually anytime she plays a match! The racist card is getting old. Nobody is jealous of her, everyone is just FED UP with her ANTICS. Everytime a referee is not giving a point in her favor, she throws a tantrum like a 5 year old!!! She makes herself look like a jackass and she is a grown woman.What is she now 35? She acts like Pari******on on steroids! Me, me, me, mine mine mine "stopms feet" and then curses referees out. Of course they are going to give her the point bc they are scared as hell to get punched out by a man in a female body.
Lesson of the day: Money can't buy class. She can be as great of an athlete as she wants but since she acts like Psychotic Spoiled Bitch on steroids she will never have respect of her peers bc we all can see her (him? I am not sure) for what she really is.

She threatened another referee with almost the same words, but this time the threat did not include bodily harm as before. But a threat nonetheless. Ban her from competition. Her days are through.

Ignorance is the USA problem. Too much of it. Let small things go. All the players have spoke there mind and what matters is you repent and know what you did was wrong and apologize like they all did and do in every sport. Thats the nature of being competitive.

Do Americans ever take an apology serious?...I mean she apologized. so lets move on.

Someone needs to check to see what Djankovic was hiding in his towel during the medical break and what kind of pills he was taking that the was not given to him by the trainer. Seems he perked up quite a bit after taking those!!!! AND LEAVE SERENA ALONE!!!
