After losing a point when she was called for a foot fault on a second serve, Serena cursed at and threatened the line judge. She received a point penalty for the profane outburst, and because it came on match point, that ended her 6-4, 7-5 loss to Kim Clijsters. A day after the match, Williams was fined $10,000, and she could face additional discipline.
