NetWorks Sports Poll of the Week: Should Serena Williams be Fined and/or Suspension for her outburst at the U.S. Open?

In what many thought would be an easy victory for her on her way to her next majors win, Serena Williams got caught in an emotional outburst aimed at the chair umpire that forced officials to whether or not they would fine and/or suspend her for her actions on Sunday.

As was reported around 3:30pm ET on Monday, September 12th, Williams was fined $2,000 but has NOT been suspended according to this LA Times article.

This is the second infraction by Williams at the U.S. Open, but Patrick McEnroe did not feel it warranted a suspension. Months after a profanity-laced tirade at the 2009 U.S. Open, Williams was fined a record $82,500 by the Grand Slam Committee.  She was put on probation through the 2011 season & if involved in another incident, had the potential to receive another fine and/or be suspended.

Knowing that the Grand Slam Committee didn’t rule on her 2009 fine until December of that same year (yes, 3 months after the Open), the verdict is still out on what they will do this time.

What do you think the USTA’s actions should have been.? Vote here:
