According to Yahoo! Sports, the International Tennis Federation plans to launch a formal investigation of Serena Williams' comments and behavior directed at a line judge in last night's U.S. Open women's semifinals. Members of the ITF will meet with members of the Grand Slam Committee and U.S. Open referee Brian Earley. Some representing the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour will also be on hand for the investigation.
It is expected that Williams will have to pay a large fine because of the incident.
