Williams argues with official over US Open call

NEW YORK (AP) - Serena Williams got into another argument with a U.S. Open official, this time after losing a game because she yelled out during a point during Sunday’s final.

Down one set and facing a break point in the first game of the second, Williams hit a forehand and shouted, “Come on!” as her opponent, Sam Stosur, was swinging at the ball.

Chair umpire Eva Asderaki ruled that Williams hindered Stosur’s ability to complete the point and awarded it to Stosur.

Williams argued the call, then continued jawing at the referee during the next changeover.

Two years ago in the semifinals against Kim Clijsters, Williams argued with a referee who called a foot fault on her, then received a point penalty on match point for yelling at the official.
