NEW YORK (AP) - The line judge who called the foot fault on Serena Williams is officiating this year’s U.S. Open men’s final.
That prompted a profanity-laced, racket-brandishing, finger-pointing tirade by Williams that resulted in Clijsters being awarded a penalty point, ending the match.
In a statement before this year’s Open, tournament organizers said Tsurubuchi “is a world class official and we are confident in her abilities.”
