Top 10 Most Epic Moments Of Sports Rage
Serena Williams Chews Out A Line Judge
The second set of the 2009 US Open women’s semifinals was a battle between Serena Williams and Kim Clijsters. Clijsters was in the lead when a judge called a foot fault on Serena Williams. It didn’t well with Selena who stepped towards the judge yelling: “I swear to God I’m [expletive] going to take this [expletive] ball and shove it down your [expletive] throat.” Since it was a match point, Serena got punished with a mandatory point penalty and lost the match. She was also fined later and had to pay $10,500.
John McEnroe’s Meltdown
In 1984 John McEnroe was the best in the tennis world, holding a series of records and winning more than 95% of his matches for years. However, today he is remembered for his outburst at the 1984 Swedish Open. First he yelled at the judge, then called the judge a jerk and later exploded completely by striking his tennis bag with his racket, swiping his racket across a table holding water and to top it all, splashing the first row with water, the same row that included the King of Sweden.
