Not even Gob got in this much trouble for an outburst of “Come on!”
During her U.S. Open match against Samantha Stosur on Sunday, Sept. 11, Serena Williams shouted just that against her opponent while the ball was still in play, prompting chair umpire Eva Asderaki to give Stosur the point for the distraction.

After asking Asderaki, “Are you the one that screwed me over here last time?”, Williams had no love, 15 or otherwise, for the ump.
“If you ever see me walking down the hall, look the other way because you’re out of control. You’re out of control. You’re a hater and unattractive inside… Code violation for this? I expressed myself. We’re in America last time I checked. Don’t look at me. Don’t look my way,” the tennis star told Asderaki.
