Serena Williams recently ran into some trouble after advancing into the U.S. Open semifinals against Kim Clijsters. Being two points from elimination in the second set, Serena double faulted and unleashed a tirade upon the line judge that ruled the foot fault, vowing to take the ball and shove it down her throat (to put it lightly). She was subsequently penalized, resulting in a lost match point and early tournament exit.
While it obviously prevented Serena from triumphing in the tournament, it might not have hurt her literary career. Already offering up her autobiography earlier this month, Serena now had the perfect opportunity to make a few final changes, bringing on rage expert John McEnroe for a tidy foreword for the newly re-titled On the Line (And Down Your Throat): A Story of Love, Lies, and Line Judges.
Just be sure not to piss her off at the book signing.
