94. Really?
"Serena Jameka Williams (born September 26, 1981) is an American professional tennis player. She has been ranked World No. 1 by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) on four separate occasions; as of July 27, 2009, she is ranked World No. 2. She is the reigning Australian Open and Wimbledon singles champion and has won 23 Grand Slam titles: 11 in singles, ten in women's doubles and two in mixed doubles. In addition, she has won two Olympic gold medals in women's doubles. She also has won more Grand Slam titles than any other active female player and has won more career prize money than any other female athlete in history. In 2005, Tennis Magazine ranked her as the 17th-best player in 40 years."

When someone has reached that level of success in ANY endeavor, just how do you go about "putting them in their place"? Are you fucking kidding? What could be done to put her "in her place"?

The call was a good one. See the picture below. She was well over the line. She threatened to shove a motherfucking tennis ball down a judge's motherfucking throat. And to top it all off, she was only penalized a SINGLE point.

No matter how badly some want to inject racism or sexism into this situation, it wasn't there.
