Williams receives fine and probation
As expected, Serena Williams has been levied a hefty fine--$82,500--for her behavior at the 2009 U.S. Open. In addition, Williams was put on a two-year probationary period. If she should commit another "major offense" at one of the four major tournaments within this period, she would be barred from the next U.S. Open, and her fine would be increased to $175,000.
