Serena Williams at the US Open

Serena Williams at the US Open
September 14, 2009 Ignacio Fiallos

Did you get a chance to see Serena Williams’ outburst at the US Open or read about it?

If not, she yelled profanities and stated derogatory remarks at a linesperson who called a foot fault on her, which ultimately caused her to default the match.

Of course, it is disgusting for a professional to act that way, but it is also a clear example of someone lacking emotional toughness. Yes, she has won her share of majors and tournaments, but we have also seen Serena time and time again blow easy matches.

Serena Williams has immense physical talent but lacks the same level of emotional toughness. If she had both she would be near or at the same level Tiger Woods is in golf.
