Furious Serena Williams Smashes Her Racket After Double Faulting On Matchpoint [Video]

A “furious” Serena Williams smashed her racquet, then “chucked” it away after double faulting down matchpoint during doubles yesterday in the Beijing.

Serena and Venus were down 9-10 to Chan/Huber in the supertiebreaker when the incident took place. While the sisters may be out of the doubles, they are both still alive in singles.

In second round play today the World No. 1 Serena faces Francesca Schiavone. Venus meets Sabine Lisicki.

Since her US Open title, her 17th career Slam win, Serena’s name has been brought up the women’s GOAT discussion, and yesterday the 32-year-old was told that Steffi Graf thinks she can break Court’s record of 24.

“I’ve never heard Steffi make a comment really, so that is extremely moving and shocking and exciting,” Serena said. “She was someone I looked up to tremendously. However, I do think there is a lot of competition out there. I think there are so many young girls that have the desire to dethrone me and be No. 1 and win Grand Slams as well. So I still take it one day at a time. I can only do my best. Believe me, I will try.”

Sekkyo Says:

Such a lovely attitude on court. Serena could do worlds better to make her deserve the admiration of her accomplishments.


The Great Davy Says:

Serena is so not Paris Hilton.


SmashingAces Says:

A good worksmen never blames his/her tools?!

But occasionally something has to break ;)


Perfect fan Says:

I like her that way actually….whn she is pumped up….smtimes screams to even brk a glass possibly, on losing easy points….she looks a lot better to be watched, when she faces a stiff competition.

Otherwise, her plastic face completely puts me off during easy matches.

Her “comm’n” gets a bit exaggerated though, smtimes….even at times whn its not called for (courtesy: uso final 2013) >:(


Pete Says:

So what? Andy Murray used to do this when he lost a match (never mind double faulting) and nobody cared.
