Musicrooms.net : Serena Williams is still angry about being fined a record $82,500 after losing her temper at the 2009 US Open, saying, "it was definitely sexist.
I mean, the very next day Roger Federer did the same thing I did and got fined 1,500 bucks. Are you kidding me? Come on."
The reigning Wimbledon tennis champion, who was punished for allegedly verbally abusing a lineswoman in New York last year, says if it weren't for her religious beliefs she probably would have said a lot more. "They better be glad I'm a Christian or else I would have had much worse words for them," the 28-year-old tells the magazine.
The devout Jehovah's Witness says: "I only felt bad because that's not who I am. I have a temper, but it's all about staying in control."
